Gov. Bill Lee announced on Twitter he has tested negative for COVID-19 and completed his second quarantine after being exposed to the virus. The governor also toured damage from an explosion in downtown Nashville on Christmas morning.

Lee lauded first responders for their courage in moving people away from the RV early Friday when a recorded message warned that it contained a bomb.

“The damage is shocking and it is a miracle that no residents were killed,” Lee said in a tweet.

Lee has requested an emergency declaration from President Donald Trump.

Lee went into quarantine after his wife, Maria, tested positive for COVID-19. He previously went into isolation after being exposed to a member of his protective detail who was infected.

    That photo above may have been taken on that date but Lee and his GOP cohorts do exactly the same thing today, they don’t care and the national ticket is even worse. Trump and Pence families’ got the vaccine shot just before Christmas and then they both took off for vacations. Trump and family went to Mar-A-Lago, as usual and the Pence’s took off for the ski-slopes of Colorado. All at taxpayers expense, just as unemployment benefits ran out across a ravaged country. Covid still exploding, people sick, and hungry but they don’t care and they repeatedly demonstrate to a worried public that they don’t care. So what if there is an election going on that could flip the senate, they just don’t care. Vote every one of these nasty people out ASAP. They don’t need us and we don’t need them!
