Last we checked in on Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, he was being quoted almost verbatim by President Trump at a rally, which made liberal reporters’ heads explode, screaming that what Trump was saying about doctors executing babies after they were delivered was a complete and total fabrication.
When we checked on him before that, he’s started (and possibly ended) his “reconciliation tour,” during which he visited a historically black college to atone for apparently not wearing blackface or a Klan outfit in a yearbook photo, which gave his nickname as “Coonman.”
National Review’s Jim Geraghty noted Wednesday that it’s been three months since the Northam scandals — the infanticide comments and the yearbook photos — hit. It doesn’t look like resignation is in his future.
Today marks three months since Ralph Northam’s yearbook came to light. We never got an explanation about who was in the picture. We never got an explanation about how this ended up on his yearbook page, or his nickname “Coonman.” And he’s still governor.https://t.co/xy8aouhoXn pic.twitter.com/rxA6G2Al82

Don’t forget his words before those images came out: “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that's what the mother and the family desired. And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

Yeah, he’d already made the national news for that comment; the yearbook was just icing on the cake.
How about that quote as well. The Democrats would have fried Justice Kavanaugh for that one. Right?

Northam must be the “post racial” Governor
— Stephen Dugan (@sdugan48) May 1, 2019
That's because Democrats are obviously the party of "diversity and inclusion" Jim.
It is those nasty Republicans who are racists.

He’s a Democrat. Look the other way

Northam has got liberal privilege
— MoreWhees (@MoreWhees) May 1, 2019
That's good. I will have to use the phrase "liberal privilege" in the future.
— Sodak (@BurningBrule) May 1, 2019
Well of course he is. He’s a liberal Dem in favor of infanticide. No explanation needed.

The outrage machine passed on one of their own.

New political playbook. Ignore whatever the problem is and just stay put. 24 hour news cycle will ensure it is soon forgotten and everything just stays the same.

It is amazing how Northam got away with it with the superpower of being unable to feel ashamed.
What's equally amazing is how the entire lib press and Democratic party just forgot about this.
— Andrew Follett (@AndrewCFollett) May 1, 2019
I continue to wonder why we are so shocked by this? Not to forget the Lt. Gov. and the AG……the swamp is very deep ?
— Lisa M (@lmallon) May 2, 2019
and the sexual assault allegation against the Lt Governor ? What happened there?
— Gene price (@Biomcanx) May 2, 2019
It's simple. They can't go after the black guy for credible rape accusations and leave the two blackface guys in office. So everybody gets a pass or they could end up with a Republican governor.

IT'S OKAY WHEN WE DO IT

Which is worse
— Oliver (@oliverartist) May 2, 2019
Of course not. Democrats don’t want to lose control in Virginia. They don’t give a damn about minorities or racism. They only care about power, control, and tyranny.

And we almost got a moonwalk.
— Drew Matich (@drewmatich) May 1, 2019
It’s true … we almost got a demonstration of his award-winning moonwalk, which he’d done in blackface as Michael Jackson at a dance contest.
Let us not forget his WIFE had to tell him not to dance at a press conference https://t.co/ogasREnEob

Northam is one SMOOTH CRIMINAL!

#DemocratPrivilege has it’s benefits.
Move goal posts, change election results, remove the electoral college, being “overly affectionate”…circle the wagons…
Whatever it takes to maintain power and control.
Those rules don’t apply to them

Yeah, even #MeToo champion Alyssa Milano is running interference for gropin’ Joe Biden.
It's not news anymore. A literal Klansman is Governor of Virginia, but it doesn't matter because there's a (D) next to his name.
Furthermore, just days earlier he suggested killing newborns was acceptable…
And he also still has a medical degree
— Mongo Slade (@MongoSlade8) May 1, 2019
I’ve really been blown away by the armies of protesters who’ve TOTALLY shut down the Virginia governm…..oh wait, nevermind.

If Northam were a Republican, CNN would have a counter in the corner of the screen for every day he remains in office.

No. We’re all still on “Orange Man BAD!!!”
