A Democratic Florida mayor claimed Monday that a "60 Minutes" segment "intentionally" falsified a report that criticized Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis' vaccine rollout.

The Sunday report suggested that DeSantis favored Publix grocery stores in Palm Beach County for COVID-19 vaccine distribution because the chain had donated to his PAC, Fox News reported.

The segment came under fire when it was revealed a clip of the governor's response to a question about the grocery chain's exclusive rights was heavily edited, according to Mediaite.

Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner was one of several state officials to come to the governor's defense on Monday.

"The reporting was not just based on bad information — it was intentionally false," Kerner wrote in a statement.

"They know that the Governor came to Palm Beach County and met with me and the County Administrator and we asked to expand the state's partnership with Publix to Palm Beach County."

"We also discussed our own local plans to expand mass vaccinations centers throughout the county, which the Governor has been incredibly supportive."

A spokesperson for CBS told The Post: "As we always do for clarity, 60 MINUTES used the portion of the Governor's over 2-minute response that directly addressed the question from the correspondent."
