About this Episode

Florida’s COVID-19 spike continues. The latest report from the CDC says we've got one of the highest transmission rates in the country; it’s so bad that folks in Los Angeles are being advised not to vacation in Florida.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Gov. Ron DeSantis is calling on Floridians who are protesting on behalf of the people of Cuba to get out of the street.

— The Governor is also facing some tough questions about selective enforcement of the state's new anti-protest law. Sen. Shevrin Jones tells Sunrise that DeSantis doesn't seem to mind a protest as long as he agrees with it.

— Speaking of Cuba, the Governor is calling on the President to find some way to get the internet restored in Cuba so the protesters there can get their stories and pictures out to the rest of the world. FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr says we have a way — all it takes is the will.

— Two central Florida cops, a father and son, are now facing federal charges for their alleged involvement in the coup at The Capitol.

— And finally, a Florida Man triple feature: One hired a hit man to kill his ex and blame it on Black Lives Matter, another is a former deputy going to prison for planting drugs on innocent drivers. The third left his kid in the car while he went drinking in a strip club.
