President Joe Biden came out and praised Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D) on Friday, despite calling on Northam to resign two years ago over Northam’s use of blackface.
Biden told Northam that, “Gov. I really mean this. I’m not being political, You’ve done one hell of a job doc. You’ve done a hell of a job and it matters.”
Northam has done a “hell of a job” staying out of the public eye since his blackface scandal almost cost Northam his job. Northam has done so well that Biden seems to have forgotten that he himself called on Northam to resign two years ago.
Considering Biden’s declining mental state it is possible Biden truly doesn’t remember Northam’s scandal but it is more likely that Biden simply doesn’t care.
Democrats have no real standards and Northam is proof of that assertion. Any Republican Governor who was discovered to have used blackface would never have survived the political and social backlash.
Northam is yet another Democrat governor who has escaped the consequences of his actions because of his political affiliations.
