Once again, Gov. Greg Abbott is dominating the headlines. At least this time it's because someone called him on his shit.

The Current's most-read story this week centered around a viral TikTok of a Texas man calling the state's Republican governor a "douchebag" — right to his face. Apparently, like a lot of Texans, the guy in the clip isn't pleased with the state's near-complete ban on abortions.



Current readers were also all about the Texas Renaissance Festival, which opened its gates to patrons this past weekend.

The top stories for the week also featured more hypocrisy from U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, an interview with Pee-wee's Big Adventure actor Mark Holton and a new roving "cannabus" tour, which will bring medical marijuana to San Antonio in early November.
