For a number of months now, anti-vaxxers have been damaging their local economies and helped get people in their towns sick. On Thursday, Joe Biden took a stand against these people creating vaccine and testing mandates for large companies. During a Thursday interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid, Steve Schmidt applauded the move, calling it a necessary step to stand up to the minority of nuts.
The former Republican strategist told the host, “I think the majority in this country is enraged over this, about being held hostage by an extremist intransigent junk science-believing minority that is endangering America’s children. We’re in the opening months of what will be the children’s phase of this pandemic, and we will see the death of America’s children.”

“And I think it’s important to understand that imposing mandates around vaccines and quarantines, around diseases, this is as American as apple pie and has gone on since the beginning of the country. We live in an age of misinformation and an age of insanity. And enough is enough is enough. Reality is reality, and it’s time to end the B.S.
And so I think that he should approach this with an iron fist. And I think that the overwhelming majority of the country is going to be deeply appreciative of somebody standing up at long last and saying to the small minority of nuts in this country, enough.”
