WATCH DeSANTIS' FAREWELL TO FAUCI: 'Grab That Little Elf and Chuck Him Across the Potomac!'

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.25.22

It sounds like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis won’t miss Anthony Fauci —not one bit.

During a speech Wednesday afternoon, the Sunshine State Governor shared his thoughts on the soon-to-be-retired COVID doc; DeSantis said he’s “sick of seeing him.”

“DeSantis, speaking at a ‘Keep Florida Free’ GOP rally in Seminole County, mocked Fauci’s height of 5’7″ — two inches shorter than his own — and called for him to be physically thrown from the US capital,” The New York Post reported.

“I’m just sick of seeing him. I know he says he’s gonna retire. Someone needs to grab that little elf and chuck him across the Potomac!” DeSantis said to applause.

More From The New York Post:

DeSantis, 43, is running for reelection this year with an eye on a 2024 White House bid. He won the Republican gubernatorial nomination uncontested Tuesday.

Fauci became a household name during the pandemic and was the subject of partisan insults by Republican lawmakers and former President Donald Trump, who labeled him a “disaster” and said he “usually did the opposite” of what the Dyker Heights, Brooklyn native advised.
