Famed horror writer Stephen King went on the attack against the state of Florida claiming that it is botching the coronavirus vaccine response… but only after he, himself got the coronavirus vaccine… IN Florida.
The 73-year-old Pet Sematary scribe slammed Florida, claiming that GOP Governor Ron DeSantis was only sending the state’s vaccines to rich, white areas of the state.
“It seems possible—likely, even—that Ron DeSantis provided rich, Republican-leaning communities like Lakewood Ranch with priority vaccinations for political gain,” the schlock writer wrote accusingly.

Well, that is quite an accusation, isn’t it?
Of course, King offers no proof of this calumny.
But what is particularly amusing is that King — and extreme political leftist — got the vaccine himself… IN Florida!
King told his mindnumbed fans that he got the vaccine in Pasco County, Florida a few weeks before he began accusing DeSantis of only vaccinating his political allies.
I waited for a vaccination appointment, and patience was rewarded. Drive-thru in Pasco County. Moderna. No adverse effects. I think it was the National Guard running the show. Very cool. Get it done, folks. Let's kill this thing.

Of course, the fact is, DeSantis and his state are solidly in the middle among states for the states for nearly all coronavirus metrics. DeSantis, whose population trends toward being older than nearly every other state, does not have the worst record for virus stats… unlike New York.
If King thinks he cares about people suffering from the coronavirus, why isn’t he crusading against Andrew Cuomo, THE worst governor in the country for coronavirus response and policies?
