Texas Governor Tweets Cowboys Defense Is ‘More Porous Than Texas Border’
Don’t mix sports and politics. Just don’t. People like sports because it takes them away from all the pains of the real world, and politicians top that list for sure. So when Texas Governor Greg Abbot decided to send out a tweet likening the struggling Cowboys defense to the US-Mexico border, he got it from a few different angles.
I’m not sure what else he could have been expecting after this:
*#%>¥! @Cowboy defense. More porous than the Texas border.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. GOOD ONE, GREG! VERY WITTY!
Because this comment wouldn’t come to us without a healthy dose of irony, it merits mentioning that Abbot campaigned on securing the border, thus making it an issue that he was sort of in charge of.
@GregAbbott_TX aren’t you in charge of that border?

@GregAbbott_TX Mr. Abbot think your great but we got a problem if your letting Texas have a porous border. Aren’t you suppose to fix that?

@GregAbbott_TX congrats. You are the most embarrassing Texas governor since our last one. Take a bow.

The “porous” Cowboys defense gave up yesterday’s game-winning touchdown to the Saints in overtime, though it looked like the tweet was sent out well before the loss. And nice use of the Yen sign to mask profanity, Greg. Real original.
