Following Gen. Colin Powell’s death, Donald Trump issued a tastelessly on-brand statement.

Not a great look for the former president.

And, according to Bill Kristol, it’s not a great look for Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin, either:

Because … Glenn Youngkin loves Trump? Because Glenn Youngkin is Trump?

It shouldn’t be posed to him at all, because what the hell does Glenn Youngkin have to do with any of this?

Trump’s statement didn’t mention Youngkin or even allude to the Virginia gubernatorial race at all. What is there for Youngkin to disavow?

This is like when they called the recent rally in Virginia a “Glenn Youngkin rally” despite the fact that it wasn’t a rally for him and he wasn’t even there.

Exit question:
