San Antonio’s ABC News affiliate reports:
Hours after Chick-fil-A announced it will no longer donate funds to organizations known for their anti-LGBTQ stances, Gov. Greg Abbott said he’s eating elsewhere. Abbott wrote on Twitter Monday evening that he’s “headed to Bill Miller’s tonight,” doubling down on his devotion to the San Antonio-based barbecue chain.
Abbott reversed his preference to the fast-food chicken chain months after he signed the Chick-fil-A bill into law to “protect religious liberty,” he said in July. The law prevents local governments from retaliating against a person or business for their affiliation to religious organizations.
As I’ve reported previously, Abbott has a track record of “owning the libs” by tweeting photos of himself surrounded by Chick-Fil-A items.
In a bit of hate theater, he even staged a snickering July re-signing of the “Save Chick-Fil-A” bill even though he’d signed it into law weeks earlier.
Today I signed the @ChickfilA law in Texas.
And, had a great lunch.
No business should be discriminated against simply because its owners donate to a church, the Salvation Army, or other religious organization.

So. What are the odds I’ll sign the Chick-fil-A bill?
I’ll let you know after dinner.
