West Virginia governor drops actual bull manure on state's budget

15 April 2017

Courtesy video image Gov. Jim Justice speaks during a press conference Thursday in Charleston to announce his veto of the proposed $4.1 billion budget from the state Legislature. 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.

Making comparisons to the budget and overal state of legislative action, Justice unveiled a "nothing burger", a mayonaise sandwhich and an analog for bull dung. Should a new round of budget negotiations prove necessary, let us hope it is conducted in a more mature manner. "We all should take ownership for this, but what we have is nothing more than bunch of political bull 'you know what'".

"And for that very reason, I'm signing my veto on the budget bill", he added, as the crowd applauded and politely chuckled.

Jim Justice made sure everyone got the point Thursday.

'When our legislators play politics with the budget, the people of WV get a pile of bull-[EMOJI],' the tweet read.

Justice explained the antics used by the capitol were immature, using the whiteboard laying out budget cuts.

Lawmakers would need a two-thirds majority to override the governor's veto.

'The Republicans passed this budget and called and called and called and said: "Surely you are going to veto this because we don't want to own it". Justice vetoed the bill later that day.

'It's just a game and it doesn't mean anything'.

"We don't have to be a bunch of babies, we don't have to be a bunch of children, we don't have to be one-upping the other party all the time", he said.
