Northam Will Not Resign, Claims He Wasn’t In Racist Picture: AP

Update 2: After a day on the links with Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, President Trump has finally got back to his phone and tweeted a reaction to behavior of Democrat VA Governor Northam: “Democrat Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia just stated, ‘I believe that I am not either of the people in that photo.’ This was 24 hours after apologizing for appearing in the picture and after making the most horrible statement on “super” late term abortion. Unforgivable!

And before anyone starts rejecting his call of racism – remember, Northam admits to more than once wearing boot-polish on his face (for a Michael Jackson dance contest where he admitted he did not use much as it was hard to remove – confirming he had done it before) – something that if done by any Republican in America would have prompted screams of anguish and outrage in a deca-panel of CNN’s “reporters.”

But Trump wasn’t finished, taking a jab at Northam’s opponent’s ‘Opposition Research Team’ being sued for “Malpractice and Dereliction of Duty.”

Update 1: Following a press conference to address a racist picture in his medical school yearbook, Virginia Governor Ralph “Coonman” Northam has insisted that he is neither the person in blackface or the KKK robes, and has refused to step down.

“I am not and will not excuse the content of the photo. It was offensive, racist and despicable. When my staff showed me the photo in question yesterday, I was seeing it for the first time. I did not purchase the [Eastern Virginia Medical School] yearbook and I was unaware of what was on my page,” Northam said at a press conference.

Inserting his foot further in his mouth, Northam admitted that he dressed in blackface as Michael Jackson during a dance contest

“That same year, I did participate in a dance contest … in which I darkened my face as part of a Michael Jackson costume.”

Northam further explains why he wore blackface: “just a little boot polish on my cheeks,” adding with a smile that “it was a dance contest. I actually won the contest because I had learned to do the moonwalk”…

Northam is reportedly suggesting that he’ll use facial recognition software to prove it wasn’t him in blackface. Even Nate Silver can predict that won’t work.

He hasn’t explained his nickname, “Coonman,” however. 

 

And while Northam may claim he wasn’t in the picture, the Washington Post – quoting Joan Naidorf, whose husband’s yearbook page sits opposite Northam’s in the yearbook, claimed that Eastern Virginia Medical School allowed students to pick their own photos for their yearbook page. 

Eastern Virginia Medical School allowed students to pick their own photos for their yearbook page, Naidorf said. Her husband chose their engagement photo and other personal pictures. Another student chose a picture of men in blackface and dressed as women in what appears to be a variety-show routine. –WaPo

A flood of prominent Democrats have called for Northam’s resignation over the picture, including former Virginia Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe, the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, Senators Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris.

Planned Parenthood and former FBI Director James Comey jumped on the bandwagon Friday as well.

Northam apologized in a Friday video, stating “I’ve made, nor can I undo the harm my behavior caused then and today. But I accept responsibility for my past actions, and I am ready to do the hard work to regain your trust.”

Meanwhile, top Republicans in the Virginia General Assembly are predictably calling for Northam’s resignation as well.

House Speaker Kirk Cox and Senate Majority Leader Tommy Norment said Saturday the governor had lost the public’s confidence, and it is in the state’s best interests for him to step down.

The Republicans join a growing chorus of elected officials in Virginia and elsewhere calling for Northam’s resignation. –AP

  1. Well, let’s see……he is a Democrat, so he is allowed to have it both ways. He can lie and it’s ok. It is only not ok if you are a Conservative. If you are a Democrat, you don’t have”white privilege”, that only applies if you are a Conservative.

  2. So where is the outrage at this guys willingness to allow infanticide ???
    Really, he thinks it’s o.k. to let a woman deliver a baby and then decide whether or not to kill it!!!!!!! Watch out seniors, watch out disabled , you’re next !!!

  3. Coonman can be trusted. He is a Democrat and Democrats are Democrats, Über Alles.
    Lying, misleading, deceiving, obfuscating, Antisemitism, Provocateurs, prevaricators , perjurers, Communists, endorsing Infanticide all Democrat résumé enhancements.

  4. Nothing unusual happening here. The SAME LIES to “proclaim innocence and “cover up” . (after he admitted doing it)
    BUT because there is the “double standard”, that exists ONLY for DEMOCOMMUNISTS, this MORON will “get away with it” and the “fake news” media will PUSH “stories to “exonerate” him, BECAUSE he IS a DEMOCOMMUNIST. Stay tuned.

  5. we all know Demoniac party thinks every American are stupid, all except them, they will lie and you are to believe them, remember C. Ford, we must believe whatever she said, now we must believe whatever he says, this asshole must resign and since this election was also rigged, there must be new elections in Virginia to elect someone with decency, and fair. THIS TIME THIS SUCKER WILL NOT BE EXONERATED, HE GOT TO GO.

  6. The (lying sack of shit) just as mentally deranged as the rest of the NAZI commie Liberal Demoncrats! Deep State, Pelosi, Waters, Schumer, Hollywood, Academia, Fake News, Swamp News and you know the rest!

  7. Where is the outrage in the Black community…silence from blacklives, sharpton, jackson, mad maxine, the first black president bang’em bill, the fake kenyan president, black panthers, MSM and others. Nothing but crickets…should speak volumes to every Black American out there.
    YOU ARE NOTHING BUT PAWNS, TO BE USED ONLY WHEN YOU SERVE THE AGENDA OF YOUR LEFT/LIB MASTERS. Not even your own raciast leaders will stand up and condemn this democrat party member. You’ve been betrayed, used and sold out.Why in the world would you continue to support the party that wanted and fought to keep slavery?

    As others here have said…nothing new here…this racist, advocate of baby killing will come out unscathed and a victim of a devious, ongoing right wing plot to smear his name starting way back in 1984.

    If those on the left would stay silent on something as vile and despicable as killing a baby up to the point before it crowns the vaginal canal, they won’t do anything about an idiot in black face.
    However, if they do lose their shit over this picture and not the baby killing, then that also shouts volumes about how F’ed up these people are and those who back and elect them.

  8. Famous line of the left don’t believe your eyes don’t believe your ears only believe my words. They had kept Blacks in chains for decades in American cities using the same technique.The Blacks are finally beginning to wake up and learn the history of the leftists. It was the leftists before the Civil War that were the slaveowners. It was the leftists after the Civil War took over the cities and they used their lies and their words to keep the Blacks voting for them.

  9. The thought that pro-infanticide Northam was a pediatrician once nauseates me.

    The picture was horrible, but far less so than killing babies. How did that get published in a college yearbook? Things really have changed!

    I wanted to believe Kavanaugh’s innocence. I believe he is since all the evidence points out his accusers were liars and self dramatizers. If Brett Kavanaugh had confessed–then retracted his confession–it would be another matter.

    Lying 101. When you tell a lie, stick to it no matter what. Tsk tsk, Northam. What would Algier Hiss say?
