Texas Governor: Coronavirus Spreading at ‘Unacceptable Rate’ in State
The spike in cases comes after Texas allowed businesses to reopen at 75 percent capacity earlier this month.

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.

Texas has averaged more than 3,200 daily coronavirus hospitalizations over the last several days, a sharp increase from the latter half of May, when about 1,600 people were hospitalized daily for the virus.

Abbott suggested that if those numbers double again, the state may reimpose social distancing restrictions.

Telling the truth about the virus? Trump's gonna be furious with this dude . . 

Anyway, doesn't he know that that's just more of the so-called "Fake News"? If anything, under Abbott's most excellent leadership, the number of new cases are going down, not up.

But isn't this the Texas anthem?

"Nobody Gonna Tell Me What To Do"

Written by Tony Mullins, Tim Nichols and Craig Wiseman

Shoulda seen the look on the face of the boss of the second shift
When I threw my hard hat at him
An' suggested the box where he could stick it
I walked downstairs an told 'em I was leavin' Bethlehem
Like I'd seen the Saviour, had tears in my eyes
Holdin' my hands up an' shoutin': "Amen"

'Cause there ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do
I spent most of my life a-wrapped up tight
In somebody else's hand-me-down old shoes
Startin' today, I'm someone I'd be proud to know
You might tell me where to go
But there ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do

We buried Daddy just last week at the church to save his soul
Man, he dreamed of pilot's wings
Spent his whole life diggin' coal
I got a guitar under my bed, but I've been too scared to fly
But that's enough of that stuff, I'm packin' up my truck
They can just kiss my butt goodbye

'Cause there ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do
I spent most of my life a-wrapped up tight
In somebody else's hand-me-down old shoes
Startin' today, I'm someone I'd be proud to know
You might tell me where to go
But there ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do

'Cause there ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do
(Ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do)
I spent most of my life wrapped up tight
In somebody else's hand-me-down old shoes
Startin' today, I'm someone I'd be proud to know
You might tell me where to go
But there ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do

Heyyyyy Abbott! (in my best Lou Costello voice) What did you expect when you don't mandate masks, social distancing, staying at home (for those who can but refuse), and allow jam packed rallys?

Care to open a discussion on the Lt Gov. as well?    

The lieutenant governor of Texas argued in an interview on Fox News Monday night that the United States should go back to work, saying grandparents like him don’t want to sacrifice the country’s economy during the coronavirus crisis.
