President Joe Biden heartily criticized Texas, Florida, and Mississippi Republican Govs. Greg Abbott, Ron DeSantis, and Tate Reeves Thursday for practicing "the worst kind of politics" on the coronavirus.

"We're facing a lot of pushback," Biden said of the Republicans when talking about his recently announced vaccine mandates. "The governors of Florida and Texas are doing everything they can to undermine the life-saving requirements that I have proposed. Some of the same governors attacking me are in states with the strictest vaccine mandates for children attending school in the entire country."

"For example, in Mississippi, children are required to be vaccinated against measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, hepatitis B, polio, tetanus, and more. These are state requirements," the president explained. "But in the midst of a pandemic that has already taken over 660,000 lives, I propose a requirement for COVID vaccines and the governor of that state calls it, quote, 'a tyranical-type move.'"

"This is the worst kind of politics because it is putting the lives of citizens of their states, especially children, at risk," Biden continued. "I refuse to give in to it."

The president added that his vaccine mandates and coronavirus response "are going to save lives" and will protect the post-pandemic economic recovery.

His arrogance coming to the front again. He was too stubborn to listen to his advisors on Afghanistan and look what happened. But he's been this way his whole political career. In his mind he's dictator Biden and everyone is supposed to do what he says.
