Remember the water crisis in Flint, Michigan? And how emails showed the governor's office knew the water was dangerous months earlier?

Well, Governor Rick Snyder just announced that he'll drink filtered Flint tap water for the next 30 days. Why? His office has announced that the water in Flint--which is contaminated with lead--is safe to drink as long as it's filtered. So the governor's going to put his, uh, mouth where his mouth is.

Not everyone's impressed.
