When your state ranks 47th and someone criticizes you for your incompetence and you can’t defend your position with facts, you simply tell them to kiss your dog’s ass…
Senator Manchin, you are in good company. You are doing a great job for your state, you and Shelley Moore Capito should be proud of your support for your state.
Gov tells Bette Midler to kiss dog’s ‘heinie’ – and shows it
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Gov. Jim Justice has a message for singer and actress Bette Midler, who called West Virginians “poor, illiterate and strung out” in a tweet after Sen. Joe Manchin refused to support President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better Act.
The 70-year-old Republican governor ended his televised State of the State address Thursday night by lifting up his English bulldog and flashing its rear end to the cameras and crowd.
“Babydog tells Bette Midler and all those out there: Kiss her heinie,” Justice said, grinning as people applauded and some gave him a standing ovation.
Justice had spent more than an hour touting the state’s accomplishments, including two recently announced economic development projects.
“Absolutely too many people doubted us,” he said. “They never believed in West Virginia. … They told every bad joke in the world about us.”
The crowd in the House of Delegates gallery included lawmakers, state Supreme Court justices, agency heads and members of the high school girl’s basketball team Justice coaches, who were sitting in the gallery.

“BTW, here are the state rankings of all the areas and agencies for which the so-called “Governor” of WVA, #JimJustice, is responsible,” Midler responded in tweet Friday, including a photo of West Virginia’s rankings from the US News & World Report’s “best state” list — where it finishes 47th in the country.
“Judging from these rankings, I’d say his dog’s ass would make a better Governor than him!” she added.
