The governor of Kentucky, where the Catholic school students seen in the now-viral video are from, blasted the media and the left for their handling of the situation.

Gov. Matt Bevin (R) said he's tried not to weigh in to what he called the "drama" unfolding on television involving Trump-supporting pro-life students from Covington.

"The level of bigotry that was evident throughout this came from one side entirely," Bevin said, adding that prior to the shorter, edited clip that was first aired, the students were subjected to "incredibly vile and racist things."

Bevin said the media too showed an "incredible amount of bigotry" toward the mostly white, Catholic teen boys. 

"This fit the narrative of the stereotype of bigotry that they would be able to run with," Bevin said, adding that preconceived notions about the boys trumped the facts of the matter.

He said that in the past, people were able to "wear HOPE t-shirts with the image of our previous president emblazoned" on them without being accused of racism or bigotry.

"The media rushes to judgment," he said, comparing the incident to how the press wrongfully incriminate police officer Richard Jewell in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bombing.

"There are none so intolerant than those who preach tolerance," Bevin said.

Earlier on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Covington school chaperone Jim Wilson told Tucker Carlson how disappointed he was in how the situation was handled in the press.

"We don't like what's happened to our sons... being attacked like this," Wilson said. "I know they're going to get through this."
