Haslam spokesman David Smith said the Republican governor had a previously scheduled commitment today to attend a luncheon at the West Tennessee Strawberry Festival in Humboldt. Smith said the governor’s office was also not officially notified of the visit by the White House.
Our petulant baby governor needs official notice from the President before he can be bothered to go to Fort Campbell to celebrate the awesome job they did? Being a snotty brat to the president is more important than supporting our troops? The state doesn’t have an airplane he could take from Humbolt to Clarksville?
I tell you what, if Ron Ramsey really is secretly running the state, he needs to get Governor Baby on the phone and tell him to set aside his partisan jackassery and go show those folks the state is grateful.
Jesus Christ, in my whole life, I never thought I’d see motherfucking Tennessee Republicans showing their asses to the military, but I guess these are strange days.
