Maine Gov. LePage: Trump owes me for showing how to be outspoken

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine - Maine Gov. Paul LePage says fellow Republican Donald Trump owes him for paving the way when it comes to being outspoken.

LePage, a Chris Christie supporter, joked Tuesday on WVOM-FM that Trump should give him a stipend or a bonus "for starting this whole thing about being outspoken."

Then the governor went on to what he does best. He referred to a couple of recent remarks saying he had to "scream at the top of my lungs about black dealers" and talk about using the guillotine on drug dealers to get the attention of lawmakers.

The blunt talk isn't limited to the Blaine House, however.

House Democratic leader Jeff McCabe used a profane acronym on Facebook to describe the governor's State of the State letter on Monday.
