Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is facing a very uncertain bid for reelection in next year’s midterms, and a stunt he pulled using golf balls to suggest he “has a pair” has instead resulted in him being ridiculed and mocked on social media.

According to Orlando Weekly, DeSantis and his campaign advisers thought it’d be wise to suggest that the incumbent is brave and willing to buck anyone who dares to use science or medicine as a way of combating the COVID pandemic which continues to ravage the Sunshine State:

Following over 60,000 dead constituents and a special session railing against vaccine mandates, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis released new scrotum-themed re-election campaign merchandise.

On Wednesday, as the Legislature made a move to pass DeSantis’ wish to ban businesses from requiring vaccines for employees, the governor’s team debuted a new set of golf balls available on his campaign website, that say “Florida’s Governor Has Balls” on the packaging, along with “Hold The Line.”

“Standing firm and setting an example for the rest of the nation in defending freedom as it comes under assault has become par for the course with Governor DeSantis,” says an email from his campaign.

Ron’s white, dimpley balls cost $19.95, and are actually TaylorMade TP5X Golf Balls.

Apparently, we’ve now reached the place in this country that Republicans are eager to brag that they don’t believe in science and couldn’t care less how many people die so they can promote themselves and their “freedom” credentials.

DeSantis got his comeuppance on social media:
