"We all should take ownership for this, but what we have is nothing more than bunch of political bull you-know-what", he said as he revealed the state budget covered with a large amount of animal excrement.

Jim Justice made sure everyone got the point Thursday.

The governor later tweeted the video, saying this is what people get when "legislators play politics with the budget". "We want you to veto it",' Justice said.
