Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has been attacked and mocked before by his political opponents for being in a wheelchair, so it’s no surprise he had the perfect response this week when someone suggested his disability was caused by God.

Abbott, 62, was left paralyzed from the waist down after a 1984 freak accident involving an oak tree falling on him during a jog in Houston. He has used a wheelchair ever since.

On Friday, he tweeted an inspirational video of a young man in a wheelchair climbing up an indoor wall with the caption: “Never quit. Never give up. Overcome any challenge.”

One person replied: “So great to see but if I ever end up in a wheelchair I’m just ending it.”

Abbott responded by reflecting on his own experiences: “That’s what I thought before I ended up in a wheelchair. I’ve done more AFTER the accident that left me paralyzed than before that accident. With God all things are possible.”

But then someone tweeted back to the governor: “God put you in a wheelchair Greg.”

Abbott is a great governor and deserves respect.

Texas is lucky to have him.
