Hateful Progressive Mocks Texas Governor’s Disability; Gets Owned Big Time

In 1984, when Texas Governor Greg Abbott was around 27 years old, he was involved in a freak accident when an oak tree fell on him as he was out jogging following a storm. He has been confined to a wheelchair as a paraplegic ever since. Abbott is not defined by his disability, however. He has never let it hold him back. He has served on the Texas Supreme Court, attorney general of Texas, and became governor of the Lone Star State in 2014, defeating Wendy “Abortion Barbie” Davis by a landslide.

During the gubernatorial race against Davis, some on the Left demanded that Abbott prove he is a paraplegic leading them to be dubbed “wheelchair truthers.” The Davis campaign even ran an ad exploiting Abbott’s disability and accusing him of not doing enough to help to help other victims of accidents which left them disabled. She was widely criticized for this ad by people on both sides of the political aisle.

Throughout all of this, Greg Abbott has remained a man of great faith who frequently tweets uplifting Bible verses or other Christian-themed images. This has enraged the Left who have often attacked him over it. One Twitter user took things even further earlier this week, mocking not only Abbott’s wheelchair confinement but also his faith. The Twitter user ultimately took the tweet down but not before a screenshot was captured by The Reagan Battalion. Abbott’s response was classy and demonstrative of a man of God.

Well said, Governor Abbott. That is how you deal with hateful, progressive, leftist trolls.
