KY Gov. comments on school closings, says America is becoming 'soft'

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin made some controversial comments while appearing on a Louisville to talk radio show.

He spent most of his visit discussing many things such as the pension crisis and issues with Senate Bill 151.

He also talked about how America is becoming soft because schools are closing due to cold.

"There is no ice going with it or any snow, I mean what happens to America? We're getting soft," said Bevin.

Bevin went on to say that it is better to err on the side of caution, but he believes that this is setting a bad example for the youth.

"It does concern me a little bit that in America, on this and many other fronts, we're sending messages to our young people that if life is hard you can curl up in the fetal position somewhere in a warm place and just wait until it stops being hard, and that just isn't reality," said Bevin.
