Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ wife Casey’s breast cancer diagnosis triggered not only well wishes but also a harsh pile-on from trolls who smugly said the cancer was ‘karma’ for her husband’s policies.

Florida’s Democratic agricultural commissioner Nikki Fried had to remind those in her Twitter replies to respect the potentially life-threatening disease.

‘Our hearts are with Florida’s First Lady Casey DeSantis and her family. We are all praying for you!’ Fried wrote, before adding: ‘If you choose to reply to this tweet, please show some empathy. Casey is a mother of three and deserves our support in this difficult fight.’

‘No, we aren’t. She can take the ivermectin and Regeneron and hope for the best .’ one Twitter user replied to Fried’s tweet.

‘This is her second bout of cancer. One user replied to a CNN tweet announcing the cancer diagnosis. 

‘Well, Mr. DeathSentence, isn’t Karma a b***h,’ another user replied.   

‘Can someone check if this is true, cause maybe he’s just looking for some sympathy and extra attention for his presidential run when his wife miraculously beats the odds and becomes a survival story? When it comes to scum like Ron, I don’t give him the benefit of the doubt,’ said another. 

‘I’m sorry to hear this news. However, I wonder if they will be turning to science and modern medicine (listening to medical doctors) to help fight this terrible thing?’ another user replied. 

‘I feel sorry for Casey DeSantis, not only to get such a horrible diagnosis but also face the prospect of Ron DeSantis choosing between (a) helping protect his wife’s immune system by wearing a mask and (b) pandering to anti-maskers for his voracious political ambitions,’ wrote Youtube comedian Betty Bowers on Twitter. 

David Hogg, gun-control activist and survivor of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, wrote that he disagrees with DeSantis’ politics but still wishes Casey DeSantis well. 

‘As much as I disagree with ⁦@FLCaseyDeSantis⁩ husband’s politics, breast cancer is something no one and no family of any ideology should ever have to experience. Sending strength,’ he wrote, triggering several unnerving responses. 

‘And she will receive better care than what is available to average income women. One Twitter user wrote, I know it sounds harsh and cruel, but I could care less about her.

‘It’s not just her husband’s politics; it’s hers too. No way I’d send strength to someone like her when sick. She’s going to get healthy and get right back to her oppression politics; it’ll be business as usual,’ said another. 

‘I’m CERTAIN her healthcare plan and a good one! She is part of the lucky ones… Move on…’ another user wrote. 

‘I don’t care if Mrs deathsantis is sad,’ another said. 

‘Mr. Hogg, you are a good man. I have zero sympathies for her,’ said another. 

‘I have no strength left to send. I used it all up on the Floridians her husband has been actively trying to kill,’ wrote another user.  

‘I find it hard to be sympathetic when they are heartlessly allowing covid to run rampant in their state. It’s killing people as sure as any cancer can. That being said, I hope she fights and recovers from this….’ said another.

‘My first thought after empathy was whether or not this would make her reconsider Covid precautions when she’s immunocompromised during chemo. Like is this real-world smack in the face a “come to Jesus”?’ said another user.  

Gov. DeSantis announced his wife’s diagnosis Monday morning. 

‘I am saddened to report that Florida’s esteemed First Lady and my beloved wife have been diagnosed with breast cancer. As the mother of three young children, Casey is the centerpiece of our family and has made an impact on the lives of countless Floridians through her initiatives as First Lady,’ the governor said in a statement. 

‘As she faces the most difficult test of her life, she will have not only have my unwavering support but the support of our entire family, as well as the prayers and well wishes from Floridians across our state. Casey is a true fighter, and she will never, never, never give up.’ 

The governor did not say at what stage the cancer was detected.

Casey DeSantis, 41, and her husband are the parents of Madison, four years old, Mason, three years old, and Mamie, 18 months.

Since the governor took office in 2019, DeSantis has launched four major initiatives, including most recently spearheading ‘Hope Florida – A Pathway to Prosperity, Economic Self-Sufficiency, and Hope.’ The program benefits single parents, Floridians on government assistance, single mothers with substance abuse issues, and children aging out of foster care. 

She formerly worked for the PGA tour as a producer and television host. DeSantis was also a three-time national equestrian champion and a runner-up NCAA division one winner.

Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, a Florida native who has spoken publicly about her preventative double mastectomy, paid tribute to DeSantis on Twitter: ‘My family and I will be praying for @FLCaseyDeSantis & every woman battling breast cancer! Casey is a strong woman and an amazing mother. My heart is with her and her family!’

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp also sent prayers to Florida’s first lady on Twitter, as did South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, along with other Republicans. 

 ‘@GAFirstLady, the girls, and I are sending prayers for healing and strength to @FLCaseyDeSantis and the entire DeSantis family!’ Kemp wrote.   

‘Bryon and I send our prayers for a speedy recovery to @FLCaseyDeSantis. May the Lord give you strength and bless the physicians providing your care. God Bless you, Ron and the DeSantis Family,’ Noem said.   

‘I know @FLCaseyDeSantis is a fighter and has the strength to beat breast cancer,’ Noem said in another tweet.

Gov. DeSantis is seen as a potential presidential contender for 2024, though he has tamped down such speculation, saying he’s instead focused on his run for reelection in 2022.

Gov. DeSantis is seen as a potential presidential contender for 2024, though he has tamped down such speculation, saying he’s instead focused on his run for reelection in 2022. 

Last week, the governor told Fox News’s Sean Hannity: ‘I’m not considering anything beyond doing my job.’ 

‘We’ve got a lot of stuff going on in Florida. I’m going to be running for reelection next year, and we’re also working on a lot of things in the state beyond just the governor’s race,’ he said. 

Former Sec. of State Mike Pompeo said: ‘Susan and I are praying for @FLCaseyDeSantis and @GovRonDeSantis. May the Lord be with them and all of their family as they rise to the challenge before them.’ 

‘Our hearts and thoughts are with @FLCaseyDeSantis. Ann and I pray that the Lord grants Casey, @GovRonDeSantis, and their family strength in this fight. Florida stands with you!’ said Florida GOP Sen. Rick Scott.   

‘Lourdes and I send our prayers to @FLCaseyDesantis, @GovRonDeSantis, and their three children. While cancer is a devastating disease, medical advances have drastically increased remission and recovery rates. With God’s help, I am sure Casey will pull through this difficult time,’ Rep. Carlos Gimenez, R-Fla., wrote on Twitter. 

‘Rand and I are keeping Florida’s First Lady Casey DeSantis and family in our prayers. May God covers this amazing woman and her beautiful family with His love, strength, and healing,’ Kelly Paul, wife of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., tweeted.
