Seriously........ Is their a liberal left that has the audacity and brash idiocy to deny that fake news is real?

Oh sure, it's difficult to determine what party affiliation a sitting Governor in this country is associated with...... I mean, my God you have to get on the internet and then it takes an agonizing number of seconds to input search terms, then several more seconds to get an answer...... Who the hell needs that kind of misery in their life.

CNN incorrectly labeled Ralph Northam as a Republican during a segment showing the embattled Virginia governor apologizing for a 1984 medical school yearbook picture.
The segment, which aired during Friday night’s episode of “Anderson Cooper 360,” showed a chyron identifying Northam as an “R” as the network ran his Twitter apology.

Nothing to see here just CNN labeling Ralph Northam a ***Republican***

The almost 35-year-old racist picture shows one individual wearing blackface and another wearing a KKK robe. Northam so far hasn’t clarified which one is him, but either way the Virginia governor has already lost the support of several key constituencies, with more likely to follow.

“My fellow Virginians, earlier today I released a statement apologizing for behavior in my past that falls far short of the standard you set for me when you elected me to be your governor,” Northam wrote via a tweet that also included his on-air apology. “I believe you deserve to hear directly from me.”

That photo and the racist and offensive attitudes it represents does not reflect the person I am today or the way that I have conducted myself as a soldier, a doctor, and a public servant. I am deeply sorry. I cannot change the decisions I 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 of regaining your trust. I have spent the past year as your governor fighting for a Virginia that works better for all people. I am committed to continuing that fight through the remainder of my term and living up to the expectations that you set for me when you elected me to serve. Thank you.​
While Fox News reported that Cooper’s initial tweet of the segment included the error “without acknowledgement,” the CNN host has since removed the tweet and posted a correction on Saturday morning that included the correct chyron.
“A previous tweet had a video misidentifying Gov. Northam’s party affiliation, it has been removed and the video has been corrected,” Cooper wrote.

The network predictably received plenty of blowback for its error. (RELATED: Virginia Legislative Black Caucus Breaks Silence On Gov. Northam’s Yearbook Photo)

I can’t believe CNN falsely labeled Ralph Northam a Republican...

Actually, I can.

When you think CNN can’t go any lower, they run the Democrat Ralph Northam story saying he was a REPUBLICAN.

They need another name other than fake news.

Let’s call them what they are.

This is disgusting. All day I’ve seen Democrats try to smear Republicans by mentioning "Republicans" in tweets about Ralph Northam but this is another level of manipulation. This wasn’t a mistake. @CNN wants to subconsciously make viewers blame a Democrat’s racism on Republicans.
Ryan Saavedra


CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360°" falsely claims that Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam is a member of the Republican Party

Watch the Chyron at the bottom as they show the video of Northam.

CNN identifies him as "Gov. Ralph Northam (R) Virginia"

Sadly CNN has sunk so low that we cannot just assume this was an innocent mistake.

Howie Carr: Northam provides latest shame for sanctimonious Dems

This image shows Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s page in his 1984 Eastern Virginia Medical School yearbook. The page shows a picture, at right, of a person in blackface and another wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood next to different pictures of the governor. It’s unclear who the people in the picture are, but the rest of the page is filled with pictures of Northam and lists his undergraduate alma mater and other information about him.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s political career is about to be aborted, although presumably the cracker Democrat is being “kept comfortable” in his final moments as the party elders hold “discussions” about the “tragic and difficult circumstances” in which he finds himself.
Oh wait, those were the very terms the erstwhile Social Justice Warrior had used only hours earlier to describe the infanticide that his party was enthusiastically proposing to legalize in the Old Dominion.
As Northam himself noted as recently as Thursday, in the case of “severe deformities,” sometimes a decision must be made, for the good of all parties, in this case the Democrat party.

Talk about severe deformities — politically, in the blink of an eye, Northam had gone from toast of the town (well, Georgetown anyway) to just plain toast.
After admitting twice Friday that it was him in the racist photo — and issuing groveling apologies — the “embattled” Democrat whose nickname in college was “Coonman” Saturday suddenly did a 180. Northam now claims that it wasn’t him in the photo, after all, even though he’d acknowledged submitting all the other pictures on the page.
And oh by the way, Northam gulped, there was that one other time he actually was in blackface, at a Michael Jackson dance contest in San Antonio in that same year where he, uh, “darkened” his face.
But don’t worry, folks, Northam assured the nation, “I used just a little bit of shoe polish under my cheek because, you know, it’s very difficult to get shoe polish off your face.”
Next time, governor, maybe you should go with the cordovan polish instead of black. Most Democrats prefer Kiwi.
He has to go. Once again, the DemoKKKrats’ mask — or should I say, their hood — has slipped, and the party of Bull Connor, George Wallace and Ted Kennedy’s pal Fritz Hollings is yet again revealed for what it really is.

Only hours earlier Northam was being hailed, from CNN all the way to MSNBC, for his unwavering support of a “woman’s right to choose.” He was a front-runner for a Profiles in Courage award.
But now he is exposed as the crudest of racists, posing at the age of 25 in either blackface or full Ku Klux Klan regalia — he has thus far declined to reveal which miscreant he is in his medical-school yearbook photo. Al Jolson or Democrat Sen. Robert Byrd — does it really matter?
It is indeed a memorable snapshot, reminding the state legislature’s Black Caucus of what they called “the legacy of slavery, racism and Jim Crow” — in short, the legacy of their own Democratic Party down through the centuries.
What an utter fraud, this drawling redneck who in his 2017 campaign for governor ran incendiary TV spots of whites in pickup trucks running down young persons of color. Projection, anyone? After the race riots in Charlottesville, the pompous hick tweeted out, “We deserve better than a president who won’t condemn white supremacists.”
Heady stuff, coming from a modern-day Theodore Bilbo whose nickname as an undergraduate at Virginia Military Institute was “Coonman,” according to that school’s 1980 yearbook.
The ironies just keep piling up. Into the 1960’s, Virginia’s DemoKKKrats led the Solid South in their apartheid ways – they called their pro-segregation agenda “Massive Resistance.” More recently, led by Sen. Tim Kaine and his dirty-hippie Antifa son, Virginia Democrats have labored to be the face of #theResistance.
Now, thanks to Gov. Coonman, we know that the difference in Virginia between Massive Resistance and #theResistance is … not massive.
Another irony: as far as I know, the only Hollywood movie ever made about the governor’s alma mater, VMI, was “Brother Rat,” in 1938. It was Ronald Reagan’s first big starring role, as a “good-natured troublemaker.”
In 1940, Warner Bros. made a sequel — “Brother Rat and a Baby.”
If they ever remake the sequel about VMI and its wacky cadets today, the modern Democrats will have to call it, “Brother Rat and an Aborted Baby.”
Gov. Coonman’s fellow Democrats have been predictably shocked, shocked — not by his hysterical endorsement of infanticide, but by the ancient photograph. Naturally they piled on, because 10-on-1 is Democrat fun.
For example, after Northam’s victory in 2017, Sen. Kamala Harris had congratulated her dear friend by name “for showing that Virginia won’t stand for hatred and bigotry.”
That was then, this is now, 14 months later — “the stains of racism should have no place in the halls of government,” Willie Brown’s galpal thundered. “The governor of Virginia should step aside.”
I guess Kamala forgot his name.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren found the photo “deeply disturbing” — even more disturbing, apparently, than falsely claiming Native American heritage in order to game the system of racial preferences so revered by the party of Coonman.
Sen. Sherrod Brown, once accused by his estranged wife of “physical violence and (an) abusive nature,” likewise demanded Northam’s immediate removal from office for moral turpitude.
Ex-NY AG Eric Schneiderman, whose Sri Lankan ex-girlfriend said last year that he referred to her as his “brown slave” and slapped her until she called him “Master,” could not be reached for comment. Neither could those other moral titans of Democracy in the Empire State — Anthony “Carlos Danger” Weiner, locked up in the federal pen in Ayer, and ex-Gov. Elliot “Client No. 9” Spitzer.
Their political heir is Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who used to campaign with Bill Clinton and now that she’s elected says he should have resigned. True to form, this ethical cipher first declaimed of Northam, “I think he needs to apologize.”
Then, at 9:51 Friday night, after realizing that all her fellow would-be presidents were demanding his scalp, Gillibrand jumped on the bandwagon, better late than never:
“Having seen the photo, I believe Gov. Northam should resign.”
It took her until almost 10 last night to see the picture?
The photo is so damning that not even the most shameless of the alt-left media could mount a credible defense of their hero. Not even the Alibi Ikes of The Washington Post, which after the infanticide debacle in Richmond, ran a fawning puff piece on the female Democrat sponsor in the legislature, including three photos of her with her baby daughter, and at least six references to the fact that she has children of her own.
“Northam,” the Post pointed out, “grew up on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.”
Translation: He’s a redneck. He’s from the same area where in 2016 crooked FBI agent Peter Strzok claimed in texts to his married mistress that he could “smell” the Trump supporters at a local Walmart.
During Northam’s campaign for governor, the Post pointed out, “he paid special attention to black churches, often attending two or three services on Sundays.”
But not, presumably, in his traditional blackface or Klan regalia.
This is shaping up as a rough day for the DemoKKKrat party. But given the (however tenuous) connections of both Gov. Coonman and Ronald Reagan to VMI, I think I’ve come up with the perfect excuse they can offer on the Sunday morning chattering-skull shows tomorrow.
It’s all Ronald Reagan’s fault!

I wonder if there will be calls for her to resign or be fired by ABC?

Joy Behar Wore Blackface

Joy Behar, the anti-President Trump commentator on ABC’s “The View,” wore blackface at the age of 29 to a Halloween party.
“It was a Halloween party, I went as a beautiful African woman,” Behar said in a past View segment in which she revealed the photo of herself.
Asked if she had tanning lotion on, Behar replied: “I had makeup that was a little bit darker than my skin.”
