Fighter jet simulator to Maine Gov. Paul LePage:
Would you like to blow up anything?
Gov. LePage at the controls:
“I want to find the Press Herald building and blow it up.”
The Press Herald reports:
The governor’s spokeswoman said in an email that LePage was clearly joking and was responding to a question from the simulator who asked the governor if he’d like to blow up anything.
