Abbott is losing it. Not only is his order moot with regard to federal employees or facilities in Texas (Biden's order overrides it), but I don't see businesses, counties and municipalities standing for this. This is one cigar that's gonna blow up in Abbott's face.
They keep insisting on fighting this culture war because they think it will undermine Biden, and win them some votes. Never mind that they're leading lambs to slaughter.
It's clear that Abbot doesn't care about his constituents, rather he'd rather make political hay at their expense. He's a terrible leader and always has been, but I suspect that he'll do well in Texas because that state's politics are ridiculous.
