Host of MSNBC Joy Reid is accused by Republicans of participating in an effort to ensure COVID-19 is “here to stay” by testing banning vaccine and mask mandates.
On Wednesday, Reid suggested that there be a “renewed American rights effort to ensure Covid is here to stay.”
“They first came for the schools, now the businesses, a surprising 180 for the party that previously claimed it represented limited government, free business, and protecting corporate America from heavy regulation,” he said.
He continued, “These days the former Grand Old Party has nothing to do with anything but the aspiration for absolute power they intend to achieve by embracing a bubbling brand of conservatism that includes the worship of shameful former president, dismantling democracy, and forcing businesses – forcing them – to run on their terms. “
The host also claims that Republicans “empower anti-vaxxers and anti-masks” to “riot and shout, spit, and attack workers who need to wear masks to work.”

Reid then turned his attention to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R), who recently issued an executive order banning enforcement of vaccine mandates and “his Covid loving kick to kick” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ (R) decision to fine a province for enforcing a vaccination order.

“Because Covid is supposed to be released, otherwise how can a drug the top donor drug sell to fancy pop-up clinics? Florida’s Leon County now faces a $ 3.5 million fine for needing of vaccination evidence while Baby MAGA is also investigating options to legally block vaccine -related terminations in the private sector. If leadership can kill, oh wait it can. “
Finally, the host mentioned that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) tweeted, “Ohio should ban all vaccine mandates.”
“A step that will allow polio, measles, and hepatitis to thrive in our schools because why not,” Reid added.
Abbott argued that while the vaccine is “our best defense against the virus,” it must “remain voluntary and not forced.” His order banning vaccine mandates also includes private businesses.
Meanwhile, DeSantis said “It is unacceptable that Leon County violated Florida law, violated the current and past medical condition of employees, and fired loyal public servants for their personal health decisions.”
“We will continue to fight for the rights of Floridians and the Florida Department of Health will continue to enforce the law. We will stand up for the jobs of Floridians, stand up for the livelihood of Florida people, and stand up for freedom, ”he added.
