Kentucky Governor Says School Closings over Cold is ‘Soft’

Man, I love me some Matt Bevin. He’s by far and away my favorite governor in America.

Last year he dismantled the Gun Control debate, now he’s talking about how “soft” we are as a society for schools closing due to extreme cold.

Bevin appeared on 840 WHAS Radio’s Terry Meiners Show to voice his concerns, noting situations like this are part of a concerning national trend.

“There’s no ice going with it, or any snow,” Bevin said. “I mean, what (happened) to America? We’re getting soft, Terry. We’re getting soft.”

Bevin later said he was being “slightly facetious,” stating it’s better to err on the side of caution. However, he stated it could set a poor precedent for the youth.

“It does concern me a little bit that, in America, on this and many other fronts, we’re sending messages to our young people that if life is hard, you can curl up in the fetal position somewhere in a warm place and just wait until it stops being hard. And that just isn’t reality. It isn’t,” Bevin said.
