The mayor of Palm Beach just came outta left field and absolutely tore apart CBS and "60 Minutes" for their insane hit piece on Republican FL Gov. Ron DeSantis.
I should note that the dude is a Democrat:
If you didn't catch the drama of this train wreck from "60 Minutes," here's a summary of their blatant lies.
The summary is that they tried (so very badly) to imply that DeSantis is dirty because grocer Publix donated to his campaign and he's working with Publix to give as many people vaccines as fast as possible.
Here's what Mayor David Kerner's statement said about the "60 Minutes" piece:
"I watched the '60 Minutes' segment on Palm Beach County last night and feel compelled to issue this statement. The reporting was not just based on bad information – it was intentionally false. I know this because I offered to provide my insight into Palm Beach County's vaccination efforts and '60 Minutes' declined."
Here was a live view of Kerner taking out CBS with that shot:
"They know that the governor came to Palm Beach County and met with me and the county administrator and we asked to expand the state's partnership with Publix to Palm Beach County. We also discussed our own local plans to expand mass vaccinations centers throughout the county, which the Governor has been incredibly supportive," the mayor continued. "We asked and he delivered. They had that information, and they left it out because it kneecaps their narrative."
"We have confronted this pandemic for over a year. Our residents, like all Americans, are tired. And the media is making it worse. They are hellbent on dividing us for cheap views and clicks. '60 Minutes' should be ashamed."
Kerner said that DeSantis was "incredibly supportive" and that the partnership with Publix has helped Palm Beach County vaccinate 275,000 seniors to date, or "over 75% of the total senior population."
