KISS MY GRITS … OR BUTT AS THE CASE MAY BE …
Maine Republican Gov. Paul LePage tells NAACP they can “kiss my butt”. The comment was in response to criticism LePage received from the NAACP for refusing to attend an event at the state prison it’s sponsoring on behalf of Martin Luther King Day. Maine? Finally, from of all places, a Mainiac politician with some stones … maybe Collins and Snowewill learn a thing or two. However, its not like the NAACP can play the race card and call LePage a racist, the governor is dad to a adopted black Jamaican son.
Maine Republican Gov. Paul LePage is keeping up his reputation for blunt language, telling an unhappy NAACP chapter that they can “kiss my butt.”
The governor made the comments to CNN affiliate WCSH after being asked about criticism he received from the organization for refusing to attend an event it is sponsoring on behalf of Martin Luther King Day.
“If they want to play the race card my son will talk to them.”
“They are a special interest. End of story…and I’m not going to be held hostage by special interests. And if they want, they can look at my family picture. My son happens to be black, so they can do whatever they’d like about it,” LePage said.
The governor has an adopted son from Jamaica, according to WSCH.
