Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis called Dr. Anthony Fauci a “little elf” during a speech back in August and said that someone needs to “chuck him across the Potomac.”
DeSantis had some choice words for Dr. Anthony Fauci, the career bureaucrat who announced his retirement earlier that week. “I’m just sick of seeing him,” the governor told supporters at a GOP rally in Seminole County on Wednesday. “I know he says he’s going to retire. Someone needs to grab that little elf and chuck him across the Potomac.”
DeSantis made the comment during a Florida GOP “Keep Florida Free” event in Seminole County.
WOW. Gov. Ron DeSantis BLASTS Fauci:
“I’m just sick of seeing him … Someone needs to grab that little elf and chuck him across the Potomac!”

And now after months of research, some democrat activists want to use this statement to toss DeSantis in jail!
According to Dash Dobrofsky, it is illegal to threaten a public official with violence. In fact, it is a federal crime that is punishable by up to 10 years in Prison.
His statement made many Democrat activists reshare his post:

Fauci is the most prolific serial killer of all time, a narcissistic pathological liar signing off on the cruelest torture of beagles, wantonly perpetuating massive lies about the safety and efficacy of /’s, with a last name that means sickle. He is the grim reaper. pic.twitter.com/ln67qSZcVe

Yesterday Fox News reported that the Treasury Department inspector general confirmed in a letter to Democratic lawmakers that the agency is planning to audit whether spending by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on migrant flights was improper.
The lawmakers asked the Treasury Department to look into whether Florida improperly used American Rescue Plan funds for the migrant flights to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, which drew widespread media attention.
