West Virginia Gov Tells Bette Midler to Kiss His Dog’s A**: ‘Kiss Her Heinie’

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice has let Hollywood actress Bette Midler know what the people in his state think of her.

Midler called West Virginians “poor, illiterate and strung out” after Sen. Joe Manchin torpedoed Biden’s spending bill.

On Thursday, the 70-year-old Republican governor ended his televised State of the State address to the residents of West Virginia by lifting up his English bulldog and showing its rear end to the cameras, telling Bette Mider to kiss his dog’s ass.

“Babydog tells Bette Midler and all those out there: Kiss her heinie,” Justice said to a standing ovation. Justice had spent his speech touting the state’s accomplishments saying “absolutely too many people doubted us.

“They never believed in West Virginia.

“They told every bad joke in the world about us.”

West Virginia Dem Shawn Fluharty was not happy saying: “The @WVGovernor brought his Babydog and pony show to the State of the State and pulled this stunt as some bold statement.

“It was nothing short of embarrassing and beneath the office.

“Jim Justice habitually lowers the bar of our state.

“They don’t laugh with us, but at us.”

Midler said earlier: “What #JoeManchin, who represents a population smaller than Brooklyn, has done to the rest of America, who wants to move forward, not backward, like his state, is horrible.

“He sold us out.  He wants us all to be just like his state, West Virginia. Poor, illiterate and strung out.

“I apologize to the good people of WVA for my last outburst. I’m just seeing red; #JoeManchin and his whole family are a criminal enterprise.

“Is he really the best WV has to offer its own citizens? Surely there’s someone there who has the state’s interests at heart, not his own!”

Manchin said at the time: “This is not the president — this is staff. They drove some things, and they put some things out that were absolutely inexcusable. They know what it is, and that’s it.

“They figured surely to God we can move one person. We surely can badger and beat one person up. Surely we can get enough protesters to make that person uncomfortable enough that they’ll just say, ‘OK I’ll vote for anything.

“Well, guess what?

“I’m from West Virginia.

“I’m not from where they’re from and they can just beat the living crap out of people and think they’ll be submissive, period.”
