WATCH: Acosta asks “Instead of the Delta variant, why not call it the DeSantis variant?”

Saturday, CNN’s Jim Acosta suggested the “Delta variant” be called the “DeSantis variant.”

“Perhaps it’s time to start naming these new variants that may be coming out after them,” Acosta said. “Instead of the delta variant, why not call it the DeSantis variant?”

“We can sell beer koozies that say ‘Don’t Florida my Fauci’ and use the money to pay for all the funerals in the days to come,” he added.
