Florida GOP lawmaker rants about 'full blown Communism' in unhinged reaction to federal worker vax mandate
Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Naples)

On Tuesday, in response to reports that President Joe Biden will mandate all federal workers either get vaccinated for COVID-19 or submit to regular testing, Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) released an unhinged statement claiming that the president is a Communist.

"Chairman Joe Biden has gone full communist as his Administration plans on forcing federal employees to get vaccinated against their will," said Donalds. "I never thought I would live to see the day when the so-called leader of the Free World would put political power over personal freedom in this latest anti-American and tyrannical infringement of government power."

Donalds, a freshman member of Congress, gained national attention when he attacked the Congressional Black Caucus for refusing him membership — a decision made in part because of his vote to overturn the presidential election.
