Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s made his first public appearance since his wild press conference last week with Gayle King on CBS’ “This Morning.”
He is trying to explain why he’s the person to guide his state through the troubled waters, which were created by a controversy … about him.
Gov. Ralph Northam tells @GayleKing: "Virginia needs someone that can heal. There's no better person to do that than a doctor. Virginia also needs someone who is strong, who has empathy, who has courage and who has a moral compass. And that's why I'm not going anywhere" pic.twitter.com/pHgxM7oGKh

Also, did he just say, “whether it be good or bad,” regarding slavery?
“The 400 year anniversary of the history [of slavery] whether it be good or bad”

And to top it all, he touted his being in “life and death” situations with children.
Empathy and moral compass as you calmly discuss how doctors will possibly kill a newborn baby? https://t.co/r3bAm5WkBN
