Recently, an incredibly uncouth Starbucks’ patron in Florida spotted Florida Gov. Rick Scott inside a coffee shop and gave him an earful of her discontent. As contemporary times would have it, the incident was caught on video and splashed across social media and then the evening news. The woman who rudely lashed out at the coffee-seeking politician is named Cara Jennings, according to a report by The Hill on Saturday.
In turn, a political PAC has gathered some information about Jennings and has released a video which tells more about this woman. Additionally, the PAC known as “Let’s Get To Work” has released its own one-minute long ad entitled “Latte Liberal Gets an Earful.” The video is embedded into this article for one’s informational viewing and enlightenment.
Jennings was seen in the viral video as she chastised the Florida governor for not expanding Medicaid to low-income residents. In her liberal tone, she called him an “asshole” as well as a few other things, such as an embarrassment to the state of Florida. Via the “Let’s Get To Work” PAC video ad, it is revealed that Jennings is a former government official. She became well-known by refusing to recite the pledge of allegiance to the United States flag.
Jennings, coming across as being quite misinformed or very dishonest, gave a very inappropriate response to the governor who defended his administration’s ability to have created jobs in Florida. She squealed as she asked the governor, “A million jobs? Who here has a great job?” The ad states some facts to attempt to quell the rather uninformed Floridian. The ad says that 9,300 jobs were created in the area around the Starbucks she was patronizing when she verbally attacked the governor. The summation of the ad asserts: “Who here has a great job? Well, almost everybody – except those sitting around coffee shops demanding public assistance, surfing the Internet, and cursing at customers who come in.”
According to the Sun-Sentinel, the location of the Starbucks where the exchange between Jennings and the governor took place is in Gainesville. Jennings claims she was there working on a freelance job for the Service Employees International Union. She also says she isn’t collecting public assistance – now – and she says she finds it difficult to understand why that should matter. She says Gov. Scott and his PAC are bullies. First of all, it isn’t his pack. And second of all, watching the exchange, it is clear that she’s the bully – not the governor. She also insists that the viral video doesn’t show how civil she was at the beginning of the verbal exchange – as if it matters when she ended up in her state of disrespectful lunacy.
Jennings also wants to meet with Gov. Scott in the future. Seriously, she expects him to sit down with her. She wants to meet on April 20 in Tallahassee to discuss Planned Parenthood, voting disenfranchisement, increasing the minimum wage, climate change and deaths in Florida’s prison system. One would hope Gov. Scott has something better to do with his time than to try to reason with a woman who won’t even stand up and civilly recite the nation’s Pledge of Allegiance.
