MIAMI – A pair of comedians who are critical of Gov. Ron DeSantis handling of the coronavirus pandemic started the “Death Santis” campaign on Tuesday. It went viral on Thursday night.

The Good Liars — Davram Stiefler and Jason Selvig — are based out of New York City and they are known for a series of political pranks critical of Republicans.

Some of them include changing the jackets of Donald Trump Jr.‘s books for “Daddy, Please Love Me: How Everything I Do Is Try To Earn My Father’s Love” and posting “I’m not enlisting, but you should” U.S. Army recruitment posters.

On Wednesday, Florida reported having confirmed more than 300,000 cases since March including 4,782 deaths. During a recent interview with Podcast-19 - FiveThirtyEight, Dr. Anthony Fauci implied DeSantis pushed for a reopening too soon.

“Certainly Florida I know, you know, I think jumped over a couple of checkpoints,” Fauci said.

Fauci said on Podcast-19, FiveThirtyEight's weekly podcast on Covid-19, that he thought in some respects Florida and Arizona's reopening plans have contributed to the uptick in cases in those states.

“Certainly Florida I know, you know, I think jumped over a couple of checkpoints,” Fauci said.
