Yeah. This happened.
I’m not going to show the photograph here, because it’s unnecessary. You can see it at the sourcelink or in the embedded tweet below. But suffice it to say that a picture in Gov. Northam’s 1984 med school yearbook (and remember, yearbooks are fair game now since Kavanaugh), Gov Northam (or at least, one can assume it’s him given that the two pages of the yearbook are “his”) appears to be participating in some blackface shenanigans. The other person in the photograph is wearing a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood.
As of this writing, the governor’s office hasn’t responded to requests for comment.
His field of interest listed on the page says “Pediatrics.” And the quote he chose? “There are more old drunks than old doctors in this world so I think I’ll have another beer.”
Well, whaddya know. HE LIKES BEER. OMG HE IS UNFIT TO SERVE, according to Kavanaugh haters.
The Virginia GOP caucus Twitter page wants answers.
