WV Gov. Jim Justice To Bette Midler, Liberal Critics: Kiss My Dog’s Rear End (Video)

It does my heart good to hear and see some Republicans FINALLY take it to liberal hatemongers like Bette Midler.  At the end of his State of the State address, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice, a Republican, held up his bulldog, Babydog, and told liberal critics like Bette Mider to, “kiss” his dog’s rear end.  Of course, he used more polite language.

Absolutely too many people doubted us. They never believed in West Virginia,” he said. “They never believed in West Virginia — that we could do it.”

“They told every bad joke in the world about us,” he added. “And so from that standpoint, Babydog tells Bette Midler and all those out there: kiss her hiney!”


The comment was in response to insults Midler hurled at West Virginians.

Fox News added:

Applause and laughter erupted after Justice’s roast of Midler, who kicked the Mountain State’s online hornet’s nest in December of last year.

West Virginia House Speaker Roger Hanshaw, a Republican, said in a statement that he had been “hoping for some time” the Mountain State would take the national spotlight for their growing economy.

“I have been hoping for some time that West Virginia would gain national attention for our newly celebrated efforts to create, grow and champion a new and diverse 21st Century economy in the Mountain State,” Hanshaw said.

“I plan to continue doing the work that leads to large capital investments, creating countless new careers here in our state, and I continue to hope the spotlight will find us for the right reasons,” he continued.

Midler, Fox noted, offered an apology of sorts for her insult, but it appears that wasn’t enough for Justice.

“I apologize to the good people of WVA for my last outburst,” she wrote online. “I’m just seeing red; #JoeManchin and his whole family are a criminal enterprise. Is he really the best WV has to offer its own citizens? Surely there’s someone there who has the state’s interests at heart, not his own!”

Personally, I’m glad to see Justice ram this insult back down her throat.  It’s time more Republicans stand up to the left like this.  For far too long, they’ve tried responding in kindness, but it seems civility doesn’t work with the unhinged radical left.
