TRUMP: Virginia Black Community ‘Very Angry’ Over Northam Scandal
President Donald J. Trump weighed in on the scandal plaguing the top three elected officials – all Democrats – in the state of Virginia.
“African Americans are very angry at the double standard on full display in Virginia!” Trump said on Twitter.
Ralph Northam, Virginia Governor, was exposed for dressing in blackface in 1984 when Big League Politics published photos from his medical school yearbook. Days later, Big League Politics broke the story a woman had accused Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault stemming from an incident at the Democratic National Convention in 2004. He has since been accused by a second woman, a Duke University classmate, of a 2000 rape. Virginia’s Attorney General Mark Herring admitted to wearing blackface at fraternity party in 1980.
There are several double-standards at play that Democrats have sought to sweep under the rug since the above revelations. The supposed party of “anti-racism” refuses to admonish its obviously-racist elected officials, while the same crowd that, in September, demanded Americans ditch now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over allegations of sexual misconduct, seems to have jumped off #BelieveAllWoman train.
Instead, the Democrats have exposed themselves as hypocrites who are desperate to cling to power at the expense of reversing everything they claimed to believe.
