WORSE & WORSE: Racist Governor Refused to Shake Black Opponent’s Hand At Debate

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THE ORIGINAL FULL STORY


Things seem to keep getting worse for Democrat Governor Ralph Northam.

Everyone now knows about his racist yearbook photos. He also admitted to using shoe polish as blackface when dressing like Michael Jackson.

Now, a 2013 video shows Northam refusing to shake the hand of a black opponent.

Heck, Ralph wouldn’t even acknowledge the man.

See for yourself:

The video, which has circulated on social media for years, shows the very end of a debate when then-Virginia Lieutenant Governor candidate Northam refused to shake hands with his opponent E.W. Jackson during an on-air debate.

Video of the incident shows that when Jackson extended his hand Northam acted like he didn’t see it. Jackson then tapped Northam with his hand to let him know he was trying to shake his hand and Northam still refused to acknowledge Jackson.

WATCH:

Northam “met with his cabinet on Monday as state legislators returned to a Capitol thrown into chaos by the governor’s insistence on staying in office despite revelations that a photograph showing people in blackface and Ku Klux Klan robes was displayed on his medical school yearbook page,” The New York Times reported. “But even after meeting Sunday night with a group of his African-American aides, most of whom told him the only way he could clear his name would be to quit, Mr. Northam was giving no indication that he intended to step down.”

Democrats and Republicans are calling for Northam’s resignation, but he says he’s not leaving his post.

Here’s what 45 had to say on the subject…

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!

Ed Gillespie, who ran for Governor of the Great State of Virginia against Ralph Northam, must now be thinking Malpractice and Dereliction of Duty with regard to his Opposition Research Staff. If they find that terrible picture before the election, he wins by 20 points!

From Fox News:

Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam apologized Friday for appearing in a “racist and offensive” photo on his 1984 medical school yearbook page that showed one man dressed in blackface and another in a KKK robe.

Northam – who has been under fire this week for comments made about a third-trimester abortion bill in his state – admitted to being one of the people in the photo, though it’s not clear which costume he is wearing.

Northam: “Earlier today, a website published a photograph of me from my 1984 medical school yearbook in a costume that is clearly racist and offensive.

I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now.

In this era, I see a lot of disrespect toward political opponents, regardless of color.
