From the Great American Songbook, “How Insensitive.” The President of the United States came to our Commonwealth on Tuesday, February 28th, for a Virginia Beach event. The event was to highlight the strengthening of the government’s health insurance program under Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. The White House had invited Governor Youngkin to greet our President on the tarmac outside Air Force One. From news reports, the Governor had declined, making another rookie mistake not knowing or not following the famous “Virginia way.” This is the President of the United States after all who won the state by 10 percentage points. The Governor’s partisanship and political ambitions outside of Virginia should not get in the way of common courtesy. The citizens of Virginia expect, in fact demand, that the Governor stop being so “insensitive.”

How many times did Northam see Trump even though the President played many rounds of golf here!


Did not know this good for Governor Youngkin!
