The progressive authors at Blue Virginia are so upset with Gov. Ralph Northam they are using expletives. Less than 24 hours after advising Virginians to do their “homework” by making “plans for you and your other family members to have facial protection,” in anticipation of a possible mandatory mask-wearing order, Northam was seen on the beach taking selfies and posing with fans standing inches away from him. The governor, in defiance of his own Phase One guideline, was not wearing a mask. When critics pounced on the obvious double standard, Northam’s spokeswoman stated: “He was outside today and not expecting to be within six feet of anyone.” She then suggested we all be prepared for these types of situations.
When this “ridiculous” statement and beach photos hit the mainstream media, the optics were too much for one Blue Virginia contributor. Maybe having to defend another neuron-deficient Democrat like Joe Biden was getting on his nerves.
