Dori: Jay Inslee tweet on coronavirus ignores his own science denial
A new Jay Inslee tweet is so ridiculous on so many levels.
I just received a call from @VP Mike Pence, thanking Washington state for our efforts to combat the coronavirus.
I told him our work would be more successful if the Trump administration stuck to the science and told the truth.

Did Inslee actually have the guts to say this to Pence on the phone, or is he boasting over nothing? It’s hard to say. Remember when the president had a bunch of governors at the White House? When Jay Inslee got the microphone, he said to Trump’s face, “Less tweeting, more listening.” He has pulled stupid little stunts like this before. But then again, we know Jay Inslee has lied many times before, so this could just be another one.
Todd Herman, who has been doing a fantastic job filling in for me these past three weeks and will be returning to AM 770 KTTH on Monday, sent this wonderfully fiery response to the governor.
You are an arrogant fool and a petty loser, Jay.
You speak of SCIENCE? You believe:
– Men are women if they say so
– What we exhale is poison
– President Trump caused Canada’s wildfires
– Western Washington was going to burn this past Summer because of a “drought.”

Here’s another ridiculous example. As of last year, you can now do the following in Washington. I’m 58 and have been living as a male my entire life. But I could today go to the Washington State Department of Records and change my birth certificate to say that on October 2, 1961, I was born a female.
To claim that you are the party of science when you only claim science selectively is the height of hypocrisy.
