Ron DeSantis defrauded President Joe Biden by signing a bill banning his vaccine mandate from taking effect at an event in the town of Brandon, Florida on Thursday.
Florida’s Republican governor visited the Brandon Honda dealership about 12 miles east of Tampa — the city’s name is a reference to the chant “Let’s go Brandon,” which has become synonymous with “F* in pro-Trump crowds.” *k Joe Biden’.
“Sometimes you have to stand up and make your voice heard,” DeSantis said at the event where he said the Florida legislature worked “quickly” to ban the president’s new rule.
Biden’s executive order, which has been made a rule by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, requires companies with 100 or more employees to obtain proof of vaccination from their employees or subject them to weekly tests and masks.
“Nobody in Florida should lose their job because of these jabs,” the governor lamented to a few scattered cheers. “We want people to be able to work, we want people to be able to provide for their families, we want people to be able to support themselves.”
Also at the press conference on Thursday, attendees joined in on “Let’s go Brandon” chants.

“It’s clear to a lot of people in the crowd that you chose Brandon because of the stuff going around on certain websites. Is that why you came to Brandon – for trolling the Biden administration?’
“I think Brandon, Florida is a great American city, I think the people here are wonderful,” DeSantis, which led to another chant and a strenuous cheer.
He added: “We are proud to be able to stand up for freedom in Brandon, Florida.”
With DeSantis up for signing on Thursday were Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo, House Speaker Chris Sprowls and Senate Speaker Wilton Simpson.
“Florida protects the rights of workers and families,” DeSantis tweeted about the new law. “The free state of Florida will stand in the way of bureaucrats who want to take our jobs and freedom through heavy-handed mandates.”
Republicans in several states have taken legal action against Biden’s new mandate.
In the days after OSHA released details of the rule, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals immediately decided to halt implementation of the new vaccine requirements.
Republicans also lament Biden’s use of a “stop measure” to quickly pass the rule, without hearing the full public comment process. They argue this is unfair, as the rule won’t take effect until after the holidays — a move that has claimed to be a political move for the president amid a supply chain crisis and staff shortage.
By January 4, 2022, all employees at companies must be vaccinated against the coronavirus, according to the OSHA rule, or else show a weekly negative COVID test and wear a mask in the workplace.
If companies or companies are found to be non-compliant, they can be fined nearly 14,000 per unvaccinated employee.
However, the administration will likely have to rely on whistleblowers within companies to tell their bosses they are not enforcing the new rule, as OSHA lacks the manpower needed to inspect workplaces for compliance.
