WA Gov Inslee claims to be unaware of state’s “autonomous zone” says “that’s news to me”

Democrat governor Jay Inslee claimed during a press conference Wednesday he was unaware of Seattle protesters creating their own “autonomous zone.”

This was one of the biggest stories of the day, and it took place in Inslee’s state.

“Well that’s news to me. So I’ll have to reserve any comment about that — I have not heard anything about that,” Inslee answered after a reporter asked him about it.

One Twitter user responded to the tweet:

What else is news to you, @GovInslee?

Or do we even want to know?
