Republican West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice held up his dog’s butt Thursday at the end of his State of the State address.
Justice’s comments were directed towards actress Bette Midler and others who have doubted West Virginia.
“They told every bad joke in the world about us,” Justice said. “Babydog tells Bette Midler and all those out there, kiss her hiney.”
Midler bashed West Virginia and Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin in a tweet over Manchin’s lack of support for President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better bill.
“He wants us all to be just like his state, West Virginia. Poor, illiterate and strung out,” Midler tweeted.
