A maskless Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) was seen on video high-fiving numerous Trump supporters along a rope line at President Trump’s campaign rally in Sanford, Florida — and seconds later, he was rubbed his nose with his potentially COVID-19 infected hand.
DeSantis was attending the president’s Monday night rally, the first in-person event the president has held since he was diagnosed and hospitalized for the coronavirus 10 days earlier.
In news footage of the event, few in the crowd were seen wearing masks.
