In a discussion on AM Joy this morning, host Joy Reid highlighted Florida’s Trumpy Governor DeSantis as one of several red states not doing enough to fight the spread of COVID-19 and thus “setting itself up” for getting hit hard by the pandemic. “This is coming” to red states, Reid warned. She asked Steele, “What do you see happening?”
Naturally, the “party of responsibility” will probably lie to to avoid any. Steele predicted “revisionist history” in which red state officials claim “all the appropriate efforts were made to get in front of the virus and this was to be expected,” etc. In other words, “the rhetoric obviously won't meet up with the facts, it won't meet up with the reality,” Steele added.
But the rest of us have to prepared for that and prepared to protect those who have failed to protect themselves, Steele continued.
Reid shook her head in disgust.
