Going to Germany without His Favorite “Indulgence”

Apr 25, 2016

On Saturday, Governor Snyder leaves Michigan, taking a trip out of the country to Germany.

Perfectly ordinary.

Well, ordinary except for the fact that only last week he declared he and his wife would drink Flint River water for a month to show that it is safe. And that “indulgence” – that’s what he called it – will start just five days before leaving for Germany.

He’s taking Flint River water with him, isn’t he?

Certainly not. He says it would be “inconvenient.”

Certainly true that it’s “inconvenient” for Snyder to be caught in one more lie over Flint River water.

He also said that TSA rules forbid it!

Of course, they forbid the carrying of all poisonous or otherwise dangerous materials.
