A protester interrupted Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s coronavirus update on Monday, July 13. Thomas Kennedy shouted “shame on you” at the governor and called DeSantis an “embarrassment” during the incident.

Kennedy posted about the protest on Twitter, writing: “I just interrupted a press conference in Miami-Dade to let governor @RonDeSantisFL and @MayorGimenez know they are an embarrassment to FL and that their incompetence and lack of planning has resulted in the current public health crisis. 4,381 people have died so far in FL.”

In the video, Kennedy can be heard saying: "You are an embarrassment. We are getting record-breaking cases every day and you are doing nothing.

“You are falsifying information and you are misleading the public. Over 4,000 people have died and you are blaming the protesters. You guys have no plan and you are doing nothing. Shame on you.”

When confronted by a man urging him to leave the press conference, he responds with “don’t touch me” and “social distance.”

DeSantis reportedly briefly stopped making his remarks but then continued with the press conference after the protester was escorted out.

    There is a saying : "Evil rises when good men stand by and do nothing." Very heartening to see even one good man standing up and doing something!

    COVID-45 paired with trumpism is really a lethal combination. This whole crisis is constantly being amplified by the greatest leadership failure in the history of the US, Donnie's failure.

    desantis and trump were politicizing this pandemic and that have cost the death of 130,000 Americans so far. And with the new surge of covi19 probably it is going to double! Dr. Fauci was right when he said that this virus was not going anywhere soon! and that a second surge of the virus would happen!

    If you are a good REPUBLICAN you will not do anything that will prevent Trump from PLAYING & PROFITING from his FLORIDA GOLF COURSE.

    After living in Texas for 16 years, I would say that Americans are good people. I still have friends there and they are worried. Their problem seems to stem from an inate hatred of socialism. Although some more worldly travelled of them can see that the form of Democracy that exists in other Western countries is not as demonic as they were raised to believe. Americans are raised to hail the flag and love their country unreservedly and that deep patriotism is the only way to live. Unfortunately that leaves them open to the patriotic scam whereupon any politician using "God save America" has an immediate attention grab. I enjoyed living in the US, but political polarization
    (notice I use the US spelling) was becoming unbearable. What is just as bad, is that it is also happening here in the UK.
    Don't bash Americans. They are smart enough to work this out. I only hope it is sooner, rather than later. Excuse the venting !!
