The mayor of tiny Hanceville, Alabama has apologized for joking that his unseen hand in a Facebook photo taken with Gov. Kay Ivey (R) was engaged in something inappropriate, saying he loved the 73-year-old lawmaker “to death.”

In an interview with Al.com, Mayor Kenneth Nail addressed complaints about the off-the cuff he made on Facebook, after a friend pointed out that his right hand can’t be seen in the picture.

In the photo (see below), Nail is seen standing to the left and slightly behind the governor.

In the comments on the post, one Facebook user asked, “Where is your right hand”

“She did have a smile on her face, didn’t she LOL,” Nail responded.

Other commenters did not appreciate the joke causing Nail to later delete it and defend it as harmless.

“It was one friend to another, just a little funny,” Nail said in an interview. “I didn’t say where my hand was or anything else.”

“I would never disrespect our governor. I love her to death,” Nail continued. “I would never disrespect anybody. That was an old friend of mine who worked at the Cullman police department with me. He said a little something and I said, ‘Well, she did have a smile on her face’ and just left it at that. Your imagination can be whatever it is.”

“I never said I was touching her and I wouldn’t touch her. I wouldn’t do that. I wouldn’t disrespect the governor or anything like that,” Nail protested, before adding, “That was it.”

President Donald J. Trump made his closing pitch to who he called "suburban housewives" at his Arizona rally Monday. He bellowed, "Women, I like women -- I like women!" in a classic Trumpian move while his supporters cheered.

"Listen, here's the story. They said 'suburban women' -- I used to call them 'suburban housewives,' I got killed all the time. I said, 'ugh, I better go politically correct.' Is there one woman here who minds being called, if you're married at least, a 'suburban housewife' 'cause..."

The crowd erupted with "No!"

"The only ones who mind are those characters... there's a lot of people up there - the press, right? Those are the only ones. The rest of them don't."

President Donald Trump's campaign manager Bill Stepien sent a long, rambling letter to the Presidential Debate Commission attacking them for being all-in for Vice President Joe Biden and demanding that they change the debate topics.

Moderator Kristen Welker said that the topics they intend to discuss will be fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, issues facing American families, race in America, climate change, national security and leadership in general.

Speaking at a rally in Prescott, Arizona, this Monday, President Trump gave an excuse as to why he's not matching Joe Biden when it comes to fundraising, saying that he'd be "the greatest fundraiser in history" -- all he'd have to do it call up every Wall Street firm and major company in the U.S.

"I would take in more money, but you know what? I don't want to do that, because if I do that I'm totally compromised -- because when they call me, you know, you're a loyal person and what happens, is, hey -- you'll do things..." Trump said.
