Governor Abbott Scorches Joe Biden After POTUS Calls Texans ‘Neanderthals’

This is why they say that you don’t mess with Texas.

How many times is Texas going to have to remind the rest of the nation not to mess with them?  Heck, they already make bumper stickers and t-shirts that explicitly explain this principle, yet there are still plenty of folks who are willing to go out on a limb and lob shade at the Lone Star State.

This week, it was President Joe Biden, who characterized Texas’ plan to reopen their economy and end the statewide mask mandate as “neanderthal thinking”.

Governor Greg Abbott certainly wasn’t going to take that insult lying down.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Thursday criticized President Joe Biden for calling his decisions to lift Covid-19 restrictions and mask mandates earlier this week “Neanderthal thinking” and blamed the state’s ongoing outbreak on undocumented immigrants.

Abbott’s comments come after his widely criticized decision on Tuesday to rescind most of the state’s Covid-19 restrictions, including a statewide mask mandate. Texas businesses will be allowed to open “100%,” effective March 10, he said. Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves made a similar move at roughly the same time.

Biden on Wednesday slammed the governors for what he said was a “big mistake” and added that “the last thing we need is Neanderthal thinking.”

Then came the verbal uppercut.

Abbott told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” that the comment was “not the type of word that a president should be using” and blamed the spread of the coronavirus on immigrants crossing the southern border. The Republican governor said the Biden administration has “refused to test” them for the virus.

We say again – you don’t mess with Texas.
