So he's finally stopped denying that the virus is actually a real problem. And-- OMG!-- actually "pleaded" with residents to wear masks in public! Now he's going to be in big, big trouble with Dear Leader!
Can Trump remove a governor from office?
Even if that's unconstitutional, I wouldn't put it past Trump to try . . . (Time to put Barr on the case . . .he'll know how to "fix" this blatant case of insubordination!!)
Governor Greg Abbott warned Monday that the coronavirus is now spreading in Texas at an “unacceptable rate” and pleaded with residents to wear masks in public and continue practicing social distancing.
Texas has seen more than 25,000 new coronavirus cases over the past week and on Friday recorded a one-day record of 4,600 new positive cases.
The spike in cases comes after Texas allowed businesses to reopen at 75 percent capacity earlier this month.
