    Why is he not livid about the killing of 19 kids and 2 teachers?!!!!!

  • WUNDAGXRE on May 27, 2022

    so many excuses

  • Leah Davis on May 27, 2022

    The people in your charge have zero respect for you, nor are you able to hear or understand the truth.

  • John Smith on May 27, 2022

    The sound of an AR-15 is ear piercing and can be heard from quite a long distance. The cops are not telling the truth about the shooter no longer firing, he was still firing. There needs to be a grand jury investigation.

  • Abel DeTrujillo on May 27, 2022

    You guys are responsible for not acting right way

  • Lovely on May 27, 2022

    If it was white students would Texas police would of gone in right away if it was a privilege schools, it wouldn’t let it happened for the shooter to even be there for more than an hour taking lives?

  • Dean Vaillancourt on May 27, 2022

    The people in the room say Abbott was there to put a spin on the information.

  • Vector Fox on May 27, 2022

    This a$$hole should be in prison for so many things, least of all lying.

  • MyBoldTannedSkin on May 27, 2022

    Oh! Now he's playing clean up! And the blame game! You all keep voting for this BAS*ARD AND YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE NEXT! HE'S A POOOOOORRRR! EXCUSE OF AN HUMAN BEING AND GOVENOR!! OF OUR STATE!

  • readbetweenthelines lll on May 27, 2022

    The one who leads claiming he's been mislead. Hey yabbot mislead by what, your nose?

  • Michael Dreyer on May 27, 2022

    Greg Abbott doesn't care about brown children.

  • alex alex on May 27, 2022

    Instead was waiting til the dust settles and the facts are established in this tragedy he rushed to get in the spotlight. With unconfirmed and unverified info he has made a fool of himself. The 3 news conferences he has held all he had was condolences all around and sorry nothing I can do. Now he throw law enforcement under the bus. What a piece of work.

  • Translation: "I got caught in our lie, and I am absolutely livid that I got caught."

    Lord help us

  • Joe Star on May 27, 2022

    Someone PLEASE get Mr. Abbott a dictionary! Because he clearly has confused the word livid with apathetic.

  • NC Hawks Fan on May 27, 2022

    Way to be a typical politician and not take responsibility.

  • tnac56ilppa on May 27, 2022

    Time to sue the police 👮‍♀️ department! 😡

  • ba55letmysoulfly on May 27, 2022

    This man is an embarrassment to this country. You know what you don’t hear in this? Empathy, sadness… maybe cus he doesn’t have a heart. He’s mad but at the wrong thing. He’s mad that he looks bad not that kids are dead because he’s self obsessed narcissist.

  • William Tell on May 27, 2022

    That man is vermin.

  • BiZzZy on May 28, 2022

    Apologies in this situation is not enough! Children and teachers died because of the crazy slow response! The gunman has blood on his hands and also the police! They could have saved more victims from being shot by that lunatic!

    Rest in peace 🕯🕊
    And my prayers are with all the loved ones left behind 🙏🏼

  • William Ray Benson on May 28, 2022

  • impeller speed on May 28, 2022

    Abbot you misled yourself. You are a terrible governor and these cops need to pay. And you need to resign. Immediately. And you let the NRA have that event after this? You are miserable

  • Markus Müller on May 28, 2022

    What if the real "maggot apple" lay at police headquarters and had deliberately delayed the SPOT while telling colleagues on the ground that support was already underway…

  • Na on May 28, 2022

    We do not want you Greg abbot in Texas

  • Reebs on May 28, 2022

    If you watch the wider shot of when he says it the lady next to him doesn’t look like she’s with it

  • Carlos Zorro on May 28, 2022

    putting the blame on his invisible subordinates…. how pathetic

  • Sadie on May 28, 2022

    What did we expect it’s the police, you rarely see the good ones.

  • Gone on May 28, 2022

    Abbott murdered those kids the day he signed his gun laws, he is responsible for 5 mass shooting in his watch. Impeach Abbott.

  • victoria mccullough on May 28, 2022

    blah blay livid …?????tooo f cking bad….u coward……………….

  • aaron johnson on May 28, 2022

    Eventually the GOP will stop pretending to care and embrace the violent insurrection they are working toward on all other fronts. Feigning sadness at unnecessary death is the last stop on their train.

  • King James on May 28, 2022

    😂😂😂😂😂 what a bozo 🤡🤡

  • Chris Draughn on May 28, 2022

    That’s not the only thing you’ve been misled about.

  • thechariotcard on May 28, 2022

    He was livid… lol… he surely directed the statement!

  • Wohooo on May 28, 2022

    Gov. Greg Abbott is outraged, not about 19 children being gunned down by an assault rifle, but about the fact that he thinks he was made to look like a fool in his press conference after the tragedy. Now Abbott is preaching for more gun sales to more people, there are not enough guns he says. This is the state of the USA where gunfire currently is the leading cause of death among children and adolescents…

  • Mister LUnity on May 28, 2022

    “Not my fault”

  • Hope on May 28, 2022

    Gov Abbott. I am livid that an 18 yr old can buy an assault weapon legally but not drink legally. I am livid that you changed the laws and now you don't have to register your guns. I am livid that you refuse to create background checks laws for people who want to buy guns and assault style weapons. I am livid because you will only give speeches for the next week and then say nothing can stop s crazy person with a gun so laws don't matter. If that's the case then why do we have any laws since people constantly break them. Your words just don't make sense. I am livid at YOU!!!! #VoteAbbottOUT2022
