Nancy Pelosi was recently asked about Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s abhorrent comments defending proposed end-term abortion legislation, and she quickly plugged her ears and changed the subject:
RUN AWAY! Nancy Pelosi was NOT going to answer this question about Ralph Northam & Va. abortion bill https://t.co/Mkt4GV4Vty

Reporter: “Considering the comments from Governor Northam yesterday, how does that make it harder for pro-life Democrats in the party and does that cause problems?
Pelosi: “I’m sorry, I just don’t know what he said”

But guess what? Pelosi’s definitely heard the blackface controversy that Northam’s currently spinning:
The photo is racist and contrary to fundamental American values. I join my colleagues in Virginia calling on Governor Northam to do the right thing so that the people of the Commonwealth of Virginia can heal and move forward.

The Speaker sure is selective about the Northam news she hears:
Interesting how you managed to hear about this but were ignorant of his post-birth abortion comments.

Isn’t it though!
Since there is no defense regarding his abortion comments, all of you hypocrites are calling on him to resign over a picture from his past… so you can bury the real issue… the abortion conversation.

Conveniently, getting rid of Northam is one way that people such as Pelosi don't have to go on record about his comments on infanticide. https://t.co/DiDfFGHx5C
