Two days ago, Governor Bill Lee attended a Tennessee troopers ceremony where he awarded them for serving the state. Overall, it was a wholesome affair, and arguably, troopers don’t get enough credit for their job. In a photo taken at the event, Lee captioned the event by writing: ‘Tennessee troopers deserve our deepest gratitude & respect for answering the call to protect & serve communities across the state. Honored to welcome Tennessee’s newest cadets to the TN Highway Patrol ranks & commend their work to keep Tennesseans safe.’ The full post can be seen below.

Irrespective of the occasion, not everyone was pleased with the governor. Here, one user named TheJane wrote: “Too bad you don’t give a damn about people. You only care about dirty cops, money, and power.” Similarly, another user wrote: “Students and women that die due to zero gun control and the taking away of reproductive rights deserve even more respect but per usual, a pic of you and your favorite authoritarian figure.”

Not only this but a noticeable amount of people also wrote about the death of Grant Solomon which is still unsolved. This shows that despite vast swathes of Tennesseans supporting Bill Lee, there’s still a noticeable contingent of those who aren’t happy with him. Overall, it will be interesting to see if he addresses these issues in the future.
