LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Gov. Matt Bevin went on TV on Tuesday night to voice his opinion on the confrontation between a group of Kentucky students and a Native American man.
On Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News, Bevin blamed the media for the backlash against students.
“I find it offensive that people have insulted these students as they did,” Bevin told Carlson. “Could they, themselves, in every instance, perhaps behaved more gentlemenly? Probably so. But as someone who has a 20-year-old and a 16-year-old to boot, I can tell you: Sometimes, teenagers act silly and goofy and irresponsible. But these children acted far more responsible during the course of that 20-minute interaction or so than any of the adults that were involved.”
Bevin’s comments come after video surfaced of an encounter between Covington Catholic High School students and Native Americans in Washington, D.C., over the weekend.
Many claim the Native Americans were intimidated by the teenagers. But, others say the teenagers are being targeted for wearing “Make America Great Again” hats.
