During a Tuesday press conference, Joe Scarborough called out Texas and Florida for their roles in the Delta variant surge. The two red states account for 33% of the new cases in the country.

And the governors of those states, Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis, don’t seem to be interested in doing anything to combat the pandemic. In fact, they are doing things that are making it harder for people to stay safe.

Joe Scarborough went after DeSantis during a Wednesday morning segment. He began, “Sounds like a socialist to me. When you’re a governor of a state, and you’re telling businesses, small businesses that they can’t run their businesses the way they want to run their businesses, to keep their stores safe, the way they think they can keep their stores safe, and also when you’re telling local school boards, banning them from taking safety measures in their own areas.”

The host continued, “Florida is like five different states. So go tell somebody in Broward county, a local school board in Broward county, that they must do the same thing that happens in Walton county, ten hours, twelve hours away, it’s just ridiculous big government, one size fits all socialism. It doesn’t make any sense.”
