Leave it to Evers: Tony’s ’sad state of affairs’

Empower Wisconsin | Sept. 1, 2020 

MADISON — Do they make them any more obtuse than Tony Evers? 

The governor who helped light the fuse on the riot bomb that destroyed portions of Kenosha, the guy who didn’t bother showing up to the devastated city for four days, is telling President Trump his visit Tuesday would be unsettling. 

“I, along with other community leaders who have reached out, are concerned about what your presence will mean for Kenosha and our state,” Evers wrote in a letter to Trump. “I am concerned your presence will only hinder our healing. I am concerned your presence will only delay our work to overcome division and move forward together.” 

Hinder our healing? 

Was the dense Democrat thinking about “healing” when he rashly tweeted out incendiary accusations without knowing the facts following a police officer-involved shooting of a black man? Kenosha erupted in violence, as protests devolved into riots, looting, arson, brutal assaults and fatal shootings.  

Evers certainly hindered Kenosha’s healing by refusing the president’s initial request to send in federal agents to help restore order. And the governor’s incompetence in failing to call up enough Wisconsin Army National Guard members to keep the peace made Kenosha’s suffering worse — much worse. All because the liberal weasel and his team of leftist weasels played calculated politics. 

There’s enough division in Tony Evers’ Wisconsin right now to choke an elephant. And that’s the point of the governor’s blustering. His politics are transparent, much more so than his administration. 

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Oshkosh) rightly called Evers out. 

“It is a sad state of affairs when Governor Evers asks the president of the United States to stay out of Wisconsin,” Johnson said in a statement Monday. “President Trump provided decisive leadership and offered support for Kenosha that Governor Evers initially rejected. Instead, the governor and his lieutenant governor made statements, leapt to conclusions, and have participated in rallies that have done more to incite than calm the situation.”

Trump, also rightly, told Gov. Weenie to go pound sand. 

“I will see you on Tuesday!” Trump tweeted Monday. 

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany echoed her boss, telling Fox News, “This president will go to Kenosha.” 

“He loves the people of Wisconsin, and he looks forward to speaking directly to them and unifying the state,” she said.
