‘Kill People To Harm Republicans’: Social Media Clobbers Biden Admin After FDA Blocks Antibody Treatment

The Biden administration and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) took heat online this week after the FDA announced the removal of emergency use authorization for two monoclonal antibodies, which effectively shut down treatment sites statewide in Florida.

The FDA said in its statement that it is removing the authorization because the treatments “are highly unlikely to be active against the omicron variant.”

“Florida disagrees with the decision that blocks access to any available treatments in the absence of clinical evidence,” the Florida Health Department blasted in a press release. “To date, such evidence has not been provided by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) similarly blasted the Biden administration over the FDA move.

“Without a shred of clinical data to support its decision, the Biden Administration has revoked the emergency use authorization for lifesaving monoclonal antibody treatments,” the governor posted to Twitter.

“Floridians have benefited from the state’s treatment sites and their access to treatment shouldn’t be denied based on the whims of a floundering president,” DeSantis wrote.

Others piled on.

“The FDA is trying to make it so that people in Florida die of Covid,” charged Mike Cernovich. “They’ll kill people to harm Republicans. Steel yourselves for the evil that is being unleashed.”

“Monoclonals saved so many lives. What is going on [President Joe Biden]? [FDA]?” questioned politico Marina Medvin.

“This move by the FDA is short-sighted–all options should remain on the table to ensure quick intervention,” wrote Florida Rep. Bill Posey.

“This is a nonsensical decision meant only to spite Floridians who have been benefiting from these treatments!” said Florida congressional candidate Willie J. Montague.

“Vaccines (pre-treatment) and monoclonal antibodies (post-treatment) are not mutually exclusive. It’s not a zero sum game,” explained DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw. “In cutting off monoclonals, Biden has effectively said you can only drink water before you exercise, but you cannot have any afterwards.”

As highlighted by The Daily Wire, the Biden administration announced in September that they’d be rationing supply of the treatment, effectively cutting supply from COVID-positive Floridians.

The move was made to apparently limit potential shortages elsewhere, though there aren’t any signs of a treatment shortage.

The takeover was widely criticized and even deemed an act of “partisan payback” by Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).

“Antibody treatments aren’t a substitute for vaccines. But they have prevented thousands of hospitalizations including in breakthrough cases,” Rubio posted to Twitter. “Now in a move that reeks of partisan payback against states like Florida, the Biden administration is rationing these treatments.”

At the time, DeSantis worked around the Biden administration and secured additional doses of the treatment for Floridians.
