Casey DeSantis, the wife of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, was recently diagnosed with cancer, according to a sad announcement from the DeSantis family.
“I am saddened to report that Florida’s esteemed First Lady and my beloved wife has been diagnosed with breast cancer,” said Gov. DeSantis said in a statement.
As the mother of three young children, Casey is the centerpiece of our family and has made an impact on the lives of countless Floridians through her initiatives as First Lady. As she faces the most difficult test of her life, she will not only have my unwavering support but the support of our entire family, as well as the prayers and well wishes from Floridians across our state. Casey is a true fighter, and she will never, never, never give up.
However, hateful leftists across the nation spewed vitriolic words and shocking attacks rather than give the slightest sympathy.
“Does DeSantis really think that anyone will have sympathy for either him or his wife?” asked one commenter on a CNN messaging board.
“I hope she has the same chance at surviving Cancer as the unvaccinated people against Covid in Florida,” said another anonymous CNN commenter.
The attacks against the DeSantis family on Twitter from the left were just as disturbing:
“They’re going to be wishing that more people were vaccinated as soon as she starts treatment.”
“Let’s see if he starts telling people to wear a mask around her.”
“I suspect that, like other diseases, ivermectin / monoclonal antibodies may be the answer.”
“Pity there isn’t a breast cancer vaccine but im sure it would have rejected and ridiculed by these science deniers anyway. Cant feel bad for someone sick who discourages others from being safe.”
“Karma is always gonna get you. To [sic] bad it’s thru his wife. Wishing her a speedy recovery.”
“And her surgeon will wear a *gasp* mask when he operates. Hopefully she’ll talk her husband into listening to the doctors as well.”
“Waiting for DeSantis to ban chemo and radiation and then put her on ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine.”
