Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves (R) refuted Democrat attacks on his decision to ditch face masks and fully reopen his state.

“Well, the people of Mississippi are very excited with the decisions that I have made,” Reeves stated. “And honestly when [Joe] Biden called all of us that live in Middle America ‘Neanderthals,’ it really reminded me of the day that Hillary Clinton called all of us that live in Middle America ‘deplorables.’”

Reeves said it’s not up to Joe Biden or anyone in Washington to decide how individual states should handle coronavirus lockdowns. He added the state of Mississippi trusts its citizens to keep themselves safe, not Biden, who is only capable of insulting hard-working Americans.

“If we go into crowds and have not been vaccinated… we can still wear a mask, we don’t need the government to tell us what we can and cannot do,” Reeves noted. “Our total transmission in Mississippi today is 40% below the national average on a per capita basis. So…when you’re managing the pandemic, it makes sense to back off the few restrictions we had in place.”

Reeves added his state has advanced COVID-19 vaccinations at a faster pace than many other states, which has resulted in decreased infections by the day.
