You have to hand it to the Tea Party. For a very small group they certainly get a lot of press. They are mad at our Governor for not supporting Donald Trump for President. Or is it the entire Republican Party they don't like now?

“The Republican Party, they seem to don’t want Trump for some reason,” McNabb said. “That makes us want him more. When the establishment doesn’t want him, I do — and that’s why we send out things like that.”

Said Governor Haslam, “None of us in elected office are perfect, but the decisions that are made in the Oval Office have too many consequences to ignore the behavior we have seen.”

Val McNabb, chairman of the Roane County Tea Party, said they have an email list of 450 people that they have urged to write the Governor and express their displeasure. 450 people out of 55,000 people in Roane County is vanishingly small.
