I Love Yew, Texas. Your Governor, On The Other Hand … Not So Much

Texas Governor Greg Abbott made a joke today about shooting reporters.  Yeah, while body-slamming a reporter is still in the news.

A Texas Tribune reporter snapped a photo of Abbott showing off his target sheet on Friday, after which the governor “jokingly” pointed to the bullet holes and threatened the media.

“I’m gonna carry this around in case I see any reporters,” Abbott said, according to reporter Patrick Svitek.

 

Too soon, Governor.  Ten years from now, still too soon.

 

So Then We’ll Make Abbott Wear a Bonnet With Bows On It

Okay, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has gotten himself into a street fight with the NFL.

Yeah, start your eyes rolling now because it gets worse.

The NFL has warned Texas that if they pass the “Show Me What You Pee With” bathroom bill, another Super Bowl in Texas might be “out of the question.”

Abbott shook his finger at the NFL (literally, he shook his finger) and said that if they are going to be that way about it, he will “force football players to stand for the national anthem.”  And if they don’t stand, he will boo them.  Because that’s the only tool he’s got to enforce that.

Once Abbott’s people discovered that his threat carried about as much weight as a hungry pissant, they decided that he was “only kidding.”

Abbott, who has studied at the knee of Donald Trump, now says he was making a statement about the NFL.

“It was intentional hyperbole to make a point: demonstrating the NFL’s own shortcoming of how they are disconnecting with their fan base by allowing players to disrespect the U.S. flag,”

Yes, mind the flag and shred the constitution.  Welcome to Republicanland.
