Congressman Mike Waltz (R-FL) fired back on Tuesday after an MSNBC guest claimed that Florida was “about to be a terrorist state” for black Americans and anyone in the LGBTQ community.
Democratic strategist Aisha Mills made the comment to “Deadline White House” host Nicolle Wallace, referencing a travel warning from the NAACP that labeled Florida “hostile” to black Americans and the LGBTQ population. Waltz, a combat veteran and a Green Beret who was literally trained to fight terrorists, said Mills was “legitimately insane.”
Wallace brought up the travel warning, issued by the NAACP over the weekend, which said in part, “Florida is openly hostile toward African Americans, people of color, and LGBTQ+ individuals. Before traveling to Florida, please understand that the state of Florida devalues and marginalizes the contributions of, and the challenges faced by African Americans and other communities of color.”
