No, it’s not Republicans opposing Biden’s new infrastructure plan, or the GOP-led voting restriction laws, or even Donald Trump that has set so many Democrats off this week. Instead, the source of much anger for several liberals is a koozie.
Yes, you read that right. A koozie is causing a political divide like no other this week. In a fundraising bid for his reelection campaign, Florida Governor Ron Desantis is selling merchandise online, one of which is a koozie that reads “Don’t Fauci my Florida.” That is an obvious jab at Dr. Anthony Fauci, whom DeSantis has been an outspoken critic of since the pandemic unfolded.
But several Democrats aren’t buying what DeSantis is selling, and are fuming over the merchandise. “DeSantis is a well-educated crackpot with no allegiance to our country, his constituency or the truth,” former Vermont Governor Howard Dean said on Twitter.
