The Cowboys played without quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Dez Bryant in Sunday night’s loss to the Saints, but that didn’t stop Texas Governor Greg Abbott from kicking the team while they were down.

Abbott, who made headlines a couple of weeks ago for suggesting the Cowboys sign Tim Tebow, was not happy with Dallas’ defense giving up an 80-yard touchdown to New Orleans running back C.J. Spiller in overtime, which gave the Saints a 26-20 win.

The Governor vented his frustration on Twitter while making a connection between the Cowboys and immigration.
