NBC News was roasted for publishing an “absurd botched hit piece” that criticized Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ coronavirus vaccination plan for prioritizing senior citizens, such as Holocaust survivors and veterans, because they might be Republican voters.

The piece, headline “Florida governor accused of playing politics with Covid vaccine,” was first published by NBC News on Thursday but came under fire on Saturday when the Peacock Network promoted the story on Twitter.

The article goes on to state the following:

NBC News senior writer Corky Siemaszko wrote DeSantis’ coronavirus vaccine distribution plan has been “marked by chaos” and “critics say he’s been quick to recognize the political gold in those precious doses” because the Republican governor “ignored federal guidelines and prioritized getting senior citizens” the coveted vaccine first.


The NBC story claimed DeSantis was “slow to respond” to the pandemic, then slammed him for allowing senior citizens to take the vaccine, saying he only did it because they were “one of Florida’s most potent voting blocs.”

The bizarre report by NBC includes the following:

When Holocaust survivors and Cuban survivors of the Bay of Pigs debacle — revered members of two other key Florida voting blocs — got their first shots, DeSantis made sure he was there for the news conferences.

And now the governor stands accused of using the Covid-19 vaccine to reward powerful political supporters and developers by setting up pop-up vaccination sites in planned communities they developed and where GOP voters predominate.

NBC laments that “there is little to stop DeSantis from distributing the vaccines any way he wants,” and slams the governor for putting “senior citizens in the same category as front-line health care workers.”

Rep. Charlie Crist (D-Fla.) pounced on the NBC report, sending a letter to acting Attorney General Monty Wilkinson on Sunday, and demanding that the Department of Justice investigate the matter.

“Why is Governor DeSantis playing politics with vaccine distribution? His political allies & donors should not get to skip the line. Calling for full DOJ investigation,” Crist declared.

Crist formerly served as Florida governor from 2007 to 2011.

DeSantis fired back Monday morning, “Our strategy remains that seniors come first. We will continue to work to ensure that every senior in Florida that wants a vaccine, will receive a vaccine. #SeniorsFirst.”

NBC is being blasted for their report.

Twitter user David Biddle wrote, “LOL. Tweet through the hate. You’re literally criticizing him for vaccinating seniors first, who are far and away the most vulnerable, as opposed to the Cuomo model of killing them and covering it up.”

Republican strategist Matt Whitlock blasted the report, writing, “What an absurd botched hit piece.”

“Amazing: MSDNC spins @GovRonDeSantis being one fo the few sane and competent Gov officials. He delivered vaccines to seniors, and he’s kept his state open and kids in school with better results than those who locked down. This makes the media very mad, did some reason,” tweeted Doug Stafford.

“MSNBC is angrier at DeSantis for vaccinating the elderly than they are at Cuomo for murdering the elderly,” John LeFevre wrote.

Twitter user Sara H. also noted, “DeSantis is in more trouble for vaccinating the elderly than Cuomo is for murdering them.”

“Buried 12 paragraphs deep, we learn the “accuser” is Debbie Wasserman Schultz ranting like a lunatic. As usual,” another Twitter user wrote.

“Florida has the second oldest population in the country. The elderly are the most vulnerable to COVID. This hit piece accuses DeSantis of vaccinating the elderly first because they vote for him. Beyond parody at this point,” wrote another person.

“MSM have decided he’s the covid bad guy and they’ll do anything to make it stick. They’ll ignore Cuomo, they’ll ignore that Florida is 27th in death rate. They hate that he didn’t shut the state down.”

Radio host Jason Rantz noted, “An actual line from this hit job: “Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, ignored federal guidelines and prioritized getting senior citizens — one of Florida’s most potent voting blocs — vaccinated first.” Which states haven’t prioritized seniors? Those Governors deserve the scorn.”

“What a shoddy smear job this is. Wowsers,” Rantz also wrote.

“They’re mad he’s trying to save grandma,” quipped Patrick.

“So NBC did a hit piece on Ron Desantis. I figured it would be scathing and have some troubling info. Instead one of their biggest criticisms is that Desantis prioritized getting the vaccine to… seniors first. Scandalous,” mocked Andre Tarquinio.”

  1. As a presidential candidate the MSM have chosen to sink their teeth into Desantis so they can slander him for the next four years. Sound familiar????

    • I was just thinking the same thing….Here We Go Again….I am seriously considering having my cable shut off ,I’m sick of seeing the hypocrisy….all it does is raise my blood pressure

  2. If there were 10 doses left of covid 19 and 11 people left alive to take it including me I would just assume jump off a cliff as deny those people the chance at life. However what do you expect from the Democrats who have murder 65 Million infants with abortion and they defend such murder with population control and the term “fetuses”. How will they defend Cuomo and his reckless and dangerous policies that killed countless seniors? Will the self-righteous left demand justice for those people. Of course they won’t. They could care less.

  3. What a lying asshole hit job…when in fact “all states” have put all emergency responders, nurses, doctors and the elderly first in-line to get vaccinated!
    These Democrats are nothing but malicious scum…and people voted for this BS!

  4. Clearly MainStream Media is scared shitless of Gov. DeSantis runing in 2024. We the people see right through their lies and propoganda.
