TX pro-life gov tweets jinx on Hillary Clinton
Texas governor Greg Abbott sent out a tweet congratulating the Houston Astros who were up 6 to 2 over the Kansas City Royals in the eighth inning – just six outs away from advancing to the league championship series.
The Tweet stated, “Congratulations to the Astros on advancing,” causing the hashtag #AbbottCurse started trending on the social media site.
From the Houston Chronicle:
Shortly after the tweet – which was quickly deleted – the Kansas City Royals rallied for five runs in the eighth inning to take the lead.
Abbott has two Twitter profiles – both verified by Twitter. One of them – @GregAbbott_TX – is his billed as “Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s Personal Twitter Feed.” The other – @GovAbbott – is for “official news from the Office of Texas Governor Greg Abbott.” The latter sent the jinx-filled tweet.
He later sent this:
Hey @Astros fans. Unfollow –> @GovAbbott. Follow the REAL Greg Abbott right here. No predictions. Just support.
To show his humor in it all, after the Democrat Debate, Abbott tweeted this about Hillary Clinton:
“I don’t believe in curses or jinks. But just in case they really work: Congratulations @HillaryClinton.”
Hillary is a radical pro-abortion liberal who supports Planned Parenthood despite being caught on undercover video from the Center for Medical Progress selling the organs of babies they abort.
She also praised Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood. Sanger was a known racist who gave Klan speeches and was a proud member of the American Eugenics Society known for the forced sterilization of many Black men and women.
