Joe Biden banned one of the best athletes in the world for refusing the vaccine.
He tried to send a message to all Americans that they will be punished for not getting vaxxed.
But Ron DeSantis gave him a smackdown that he was not prepared for.
Novak Djokovic has been one of the best tennis players in the world for years now, winning 22 majors and countless other tournaments.
He also is a strong believer in medical freedom, and has exercised his right not to get the vaccine.
Getting the vaccine should be a personal choice, and no one should be judged for their decision one way or the other.
But that’s not what the Biden administration believes. They have taken extreme steps to force every American to get the vaccine, whether they want it or not.
This is in spite of the fact that the vaccine has been proven not to stop transmission – only to lessen symptoms once you actually get infected.
In other words, there’s no reason for anyone who’s vaccinated to care if someone they encounter is not vaccinated. It doesn’t make them any more likely to get infected. It’s an entirely personal decision.
But now the Biden administration is refusing to allow Djokovic to enter the United States for the upcoming Miami Open tournament.
And he is getting shredded by his arch-nemesis: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
According to Fox News, “Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis called on President Biden to allow tennis superstar Novak Djokovic into the United States to play in the upcoming Miami Open even though he’s unvaccinated against COVID-19.”
DeSantis also offered Djokovic a potential way around this ban – entering the U.S. by boat.
Imagine how furious Joe Biden would be if Djokovic found his way into the country against Biden’s wishes?
In DeSantis’s letter to Biden, he said “It is also not clear to me why, even by the terms of your own proclamation, Mr. Djokovic could not legally enter this country via boat. Please confirm no later than Friday, March 10, 2023, that this method of travel into Florida would be permissible.”
Later, at a press conference, DeSantis doubled down on his statements about Djokovic: “I would run a boat from the Bahamas here for him, I would do that a hundred percent.”
DeSantis also roasted Biden’s border policies in his letter, saying “Furthermore, even as you enacted a Proclamation on air travel that remains in force to this day, your administration pointedly allowed thousands of unvaccinated migrants to enter our country through the southern border.”
So apparently Biden’s vaccination policies don’t apply if you’re an illegal immigrant, only if you are entering the country legally.
DeSantis is throwing down the gauntlet here, threatening to override Biden’s decision to ban Djokovic from the country, and bring him to Florida anyway against Biden’s wishes.
Once again, DeSantis is acting as somewhat of a shadow President, bringing the type of leadership to America that Biden refuses to offer, and fixing the mess that Biden leaves behind.
