Kentucky governor apologizes after comments on teacher protests

Bevin said that households from their state had been forced to abandon children at home and in peril of not sexual assault, but of eating poison or being offered medication for the very first time. It is not my intent to hurt anyone.but to help us all move forward.

'It's my responsibility to represent you, not only when I'm speaking to you, but when I'm speaking on your behalf in ways that are clear, that are understood, that don't hurt people and don't confuse people, ' he said. We need each other.

Republican Governor Matt Bevin issued the four-minute apology video on Sunday, saying that many people misunderstood and "did not fully appreciate" his earlier statement. "He's just one of a number of Republican governors that's getting things done across the country", said Walker.

That same day, Bevin blasted the teachers for taking the day off to protest. More than 30 school districts closed Friday and Bevin's comments came not long after lawmakers voted to override his vetoes of an operating budget that included more spending on public education and an accompanying tax increase.

Kono met Wang in China in January when he became the first Japanese foreign minister to visit the country in almost two years. South Korean President Moon Jae In and US President Donald Trump are preparing for separate direct talks with Mr Kim.

Bevin concluded his video to Kentucky by saying everybody needs to stay together.

"That's a bad thing to say, because what it implies is that teachers only care about themselves", said Myers, who is running for the First Congressional District seat being vacated by House Speaker Paul Ryan. "Governor Bevin is on the wrong side of history, and as his latest outburst shows, he's also on the wrong side of simple decency". Time and time again we hear this demeaning rhetoric spewed, attacking our public educators and public employees. Zimmerman noted that the first-term Kentucky governor had made an apology.

"I guarantee you somewhere in Kentucky today a child was sexually assaulted that was left at home because there was nobody there to watch them", Bevin said Friday in a video tweeted by WDRB-TV reporter Marcus Green.

"His insults of teachers over the past year have been beneath the decorum of any respectable elected official", Nishimuta wrote in a statement. "As a mother, suggesting children were abused as a prop for his political rhetoric is disturbing and absurdly in poor taste".
