The White House told the governors of Florida and Texas to stop undercutting the feds by allowing citizens to exercise free choice. Or else. It's almost as they think their trumped-up vaccine mandates are truly mandates or something. That's so cute. Bless their hearts.

The presidential oath of office that is prescribed by the U.S. Constitution (Article II, section 1) makes it clear that the president's supreme responsibility is to "preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States."
