BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): As people look around and watch us, many of them are some of the 280 million now living at stay-at-home orders, that now includes Florida. The president says listen, I'm not going to mandate it because every state is different.

And I think the president has been remarkable -- remarkably measured. People like to criticize him and say, you know, he wants all the power and he likes dictators. Every time he has an opportunity to take massive control, especially after a pandemic like this, in which all bets are off, he pushes back and lets other people take the lead in the areas they know best. He gets very little credit for that.
