Legendary singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett made few digs at President Trump and other Republicans while hosting a concert in support of Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson and Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum on Saturday.

During his performance, Buffett made tweaks to two of his most popular songs to criticize Trump and Republican Gov. Rick Scott (Fla.), according to The Associated Press.

Buffet then shifted his focus to Scott and environmental issues in the state while performing “Margaritaville,” reportedly singing: Some people say there’s a red tide to blame, but I know, that it’s all Rick Scott’s fault.”

Buffett, a resident of Palm Beach, previously hosted a free concert days before the Florida Democratic primary after endorsing Gwen Graham, who went on to finish second to Gillum in the race.

Nelson is defending his seat against Republican Gov. Rick Scott in the Nov. 6 election. Gillum is facing off against Republican Ron DeSantis.
