WATCH: Northam Refers to Slaves as ‘Indentured Servants’

He just keeps making it worse.

Published

Blackface-wearing Democrat Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam kept digging himself a deeper hole on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” continuing possibly the worst string of public relations work in the recent history of American politics.

Host Gayle King pressed Northam on what she described as a “very difficult week for [Northam] and state of Virginia.” She opened the floor to Northam, asking him where he wanted to begin, and immediately he launched into a historical tirade, which quickly derailed

“We are now at the 400-year anniversary — just 90 miles from here in 1619. The first indentured servants from Africa landed on our shores in Old Point Comfort, what we call now Fort Monroe, and while—” he said before King cut him off.

“Also known as slavery,” King said.

“Yes,” Northam replied sheepishly.

Last Saturday, Northam gave a bizarre speech at a press conference, denying that he was in the blackface photos first published by Big League Politics last Friday, despite the fact that he had apologized for appearing in the photos Friday evening. He then volunteered up the fact that he wore blackface at a Michael Jackson theme party in the 1980’s, before attempting to moonwalk off the podium.

The embattled Governor has refused to resign despite the scandal.
