West Virginia Governor Brings Out Actual Bulls**t To Show What He Thinks Of Budget Bill

💩

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (D) made it clear he thinks a budget bill state lawmakers sent to his desk is a load of bull crap.

Justice rolled out a copy of the bill with poop on top during a Thursday announcement saying he’d veto the legislation.

The governor, who frequently uses props during announcements, brought out three covered trays during a speech criticizing the $4.1 billion budget bill. He uncovered the first two trays to reveal a “nothing burger” and a “mayonnaise sandwich,” references to colorful ways he criticized budget plans earlier this month.

He uncovered the third tray to reveal a stack of papers ― presumably the budget bill, which lawmakers passed on Sunday ― with what Justice called “bull-you-know-what” on top.

”We don’t have a nothing burger today, and we don’t have a mayonnaise sandwich today,” Justice said. “We all should take ownership for this, but what we have is nothing more than a bunch of political bull-you-know-what.”

Here’s a closer look at the you-know-what.

After vetoing the bill, Justice said he hopes lawmakers will “stop the bull crap.”

“I hope and pray that the silliness will stop,” he said.
