Houston Dem Mayor Told Citizens to “Think Twice Before Trying to Leave Houston” — Now They’re Dying

On August 24th Texas Governor Greg Abbott warned Texas citizens in the path of Hurricane Harvey to heed warnings from local officials and adhere to ALL evacuation orders.

But Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner had a different idea.

The Houston mayor told citizens to “think twice before trying to leave Houston” before Hurricane Harvey hit.

Via Redditt The Donald:

Now Houston is flooded, the city is expecting more rain, looters are ransacking stores, and people are dying.

And it’s only going to get worse.

On top of that, Mayor Turner is not taking the governor’s calls:

Texas governor says he can’t reach Houston mayor – Mayor Will Not Talk to the Governor – Chicken – Abbott said Sunday he’d called Tuner’s cell phone “several times” to “let him know that, whatever he needs, the state of Texas will provide.” Abbott said he’d yet to hear back.

On Sunday Turner defended his decision to tell residents to stay put.
