Like most narcissists, Governor Rick Scott cannot stand it when he's criticized, especially when the criticism goes viral.

Earlier this week, Cara Jennings ripped on Scott in Starbucks over his draconian policies with regard to Medicaid and health insurance.

Governor Voldemort didn't care for that much, and so his PAC made an ad to attack her as a "Latte Liberal" and more.

The new ad from Scott’s PAC, “Let’s Get To Work,” calls Jennings “a terribly rude woman,” a “latte liberal” and someone who “clearly has a problem.” It defends Scott’s record on job creation, arguing that “almost everybody” has a job “except those who are sitting around coffee shops, demanding public assistance, surfing the Internet and cursing at customers who come in.”

Jennings reacted to it with some surprise.

“I’ve never heard of a governor of the entire state of Florida putting out a video like this in response to a constituent,” she said. “It’s pretty much unheard of. But if you’re someone in Florida and you live here and you live under Rick Scott’s policies, it’s not that shocking.”

Here's Jennings' original rant.

I don't think his idiotic ad stands up to her righteous indignation very well. Seems to me someone's ego got bruised. Or maybe he's worried that he needs to prove himself to Donald Trump.
