California’s Governor Gavin Newsom, who has violated his own coronavirus restrictions looked even more ridiculous when he tried to scold Texas Governor Greg Abbott who announced an end to the statewide mask mandate.
Abbott made the announcement while addressing small business and community leaders of the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday.
“It is time for Texas to be open 100 percent,” the governor said. “Everybody that wants a job should be able to get a job. Every business that wants to be open should be open.”
He also added that he is terminating the “statewide mask mandate.
“With the medical advancements of vaccines and antibody therapeutic drugs, Texas now has the tools to protect Texans from the virus,” Abbott explained. “We must now do more to restore livelihoods and normalcy for Texans by opening Texas 100 percent. Make no mistake, COVID-19 has not disappeared, but it is clear from the recoveries, vaccinations, reduced hospitalizations, and safe practices that Texans are using that state mandates are no longer needed.”
“By next Wednesday, about 7 million shots will have been administered in Texas and over half of seniors in Texas will have received a vaccine shot. By the end of March, every senior who wants a vaccine should be able to get one,” he continued. “The vaccine supply continues to increase so rapidly that more and more Texans will soon be eligible to receive a vaccine.”
“Today’s announcement does not abandon safe practices that Texans have mastered over the past year,” Abbott stated. “Instead, it is a reminder that each person has a role to play in their own personal safety and the safety of others. With this executive order, we are ensuring that all businesses and families in Texas have the freedom to determine their own destiny.”
Governor Abbott trusts the people of Texas and is not treating them like children unlike the California Governor, Gavin Newsom who has driven his state into the ground.
In response to the declaration Newsom attempted to scold Texas.

Abbott’s decision isn’t reckless, he has consulted his medical experts and believe’s this is the right course. The reason people like Newsom are worried is because should Abbott’s decision payoff the COVID charade is over.
