Georgia GOP Gov Loses His Temper, Attacks Reporters For Questioning His Plan To Reopen Businesses
Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) has been planning to reopen the state despite advice from experts not to due to uncertainty of the spread of COVID-19.
On Monday, Kemp was confronted by reporters who wondered why he was pushing to open the state back up so quickly.
Kemp lost his temper and lashed out at the reporters.
First time I can remember @GovKemp getting hostile towards a reporter question. The question was about the President and others criticizing the plan to reopen early. The Governor is steadfast that Georgia is in position to move forward.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, asked about Trump’s criticism of him, attacks the media. Reality is the state has not met the WH guidelines for reopening and the President said it was too soon. “We didn’t meet the full gated criteria” said the state health commissioner
