A person can certainly tell a story just by analyzing a photo.
Want proof? Well, it appears as though a narrative is being told over an image that has gone viral. The snap features country music outlaw Willie Nelson and Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
But, the kicker here is that they appear to be promoting marijuana, which has a lot of people raising their eyebrows. Of course, Willie is no stranger to endorsing the product. But, that’s not the case for Terry. It all started on Sept. 17, when Willie’s wife, Annie Nelson, tweeted a photo of them posing next to a can of “Willie’s Reserve” — Willie’s brand of weed. But, that’s not all. She also included the caption, “Uh-OH Trouble!”
As you see in the photo above, one glance will have you jumping to conclusions. The pals both smile wide, as Terry leans in toward the container of weed that’s sitting on the table between them.
As it turns out, Terry had no idea what was actually on the table when he met up with the singer. According to the “Richmond Times Dispatch,” Terry’s spokesperson Brian Coy addressed the situation saying that the governor “Wouldn’t know marijuana or related paraphernalia if it walked up and shook his hand.”
He added, “He’s cool, but he’s not that cool.”
Annie later took to Twitter to set the record straight herself saying, “One of them did not imbibe-guess which one!!!!”
The photo was taken following Willie’s concert at Farm Aid 2016 in Bristow. Terry was just thanking the Red Headed Stranger for his performance.
Marijuana is currently sold in Colorado and Washington but is considered illegal in the state of Virginia.
