DESANTIS: ‘A Recession Is When Your Neighbor Loses His Job,’ And ‘A Recovery Is When Dr. Fauci Loses His’

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) cracked a joke about the infamous incompetence of Biden regime medical advisor Anthony Fauci during an event announced by the governor’s office on Wednesday. DeSantis also announced new election integrity efforts and ridiculed the unpopularity of the Biden regime.

“Because sometimes people will ask me, oh man, how come Florida 84,000 jobs the rest of the country, you know, what could be done to help the rest of the country,” DeSantis said. “And I say, well you know the saying that I always think back, and it’s a little bit of a flourish on how it’s been used previously: ‘A recession is when your neighbor loses his job; a depression is when you lose yours; a recovery is when Dr. Fauci loses his.’”

“A recession is when your neighbor loses his job; a depression is when you lose yours; a recovery is when Dr. Fauci loses his.”

“We’ve seen how they abused ballot harvesting,” DeSantis said later in the speech, which announced a series of new election integrity measures. “We banned ballot harvesting, but they only counted it as a misdemeanor. We’re gonna make sure ballot harvesting is a third-degree felony in the state of Florida.”

“They would take these drop boxes, and they put them in all kinds of crazy locations,” Desantis continued. “I think that there needs to be more reforms on this. First of all, I don’t even think we should have drop boxes, to be honest with you.” He also noted,“We’re going to do another package of election integrity reforms that is going to make Florida way No. 1 by a long shot anywhere in the country.”
