It goes without saying that all this phony outrage is really stupid, but it is hilarious when phony politicians like Mark Herring are impaled on it so spectacularly:
So the Virginia AG told Northam to resign for wearing blackface, then a picture of him wearing blackface in 1980 emerges today. Standard ritual apology follows. But let's not lose sight of the fact that all the fake outrage is ridiculous. This isn't news.https://t.co/vKX1LQHft9

So the Virginia Democrat:
-Governor put a blackface/KKK pic in his yearbook.
-Lt Gov is accused of sexual assault
-Attorney general also admitted to wearing blackface
The fourth in succession is VA’s Statehouse speaker, GOP, who won the job on a coin toss after a tie.

Just a few days ago, he called for Ralph Northam to resign over wearing blackface. Now, this hypocrite is admitting that he wore blackface himself back in the 1980s:

We should never see this scene on Virginia streets again. I'm disappointed a Republican-controlled committee rejected my bill with @SenLouiseLucas to address the unregulated, heavily-armed "militias" we saw in Charlottesville. pic.twitter.com/Sg7Dmm5HrR

Another defeat on a party line vote. Let me say again: a KKK member fired a gun in a crowd in Charlottesville, and Republicans in the General Assembly refuse to take action. Thanks for carrying the bill @deltoscano.

The violence, chaos, and apparent loss of life in Charlottesville is not the fault of "many sides." It is racists and white supremacists.

It's tragic our president can't bring himself to condemn Nazis, racism, and white supremacists. Should be the easiest thing in the world. https://t.co/YDRtcQZWzT

Do you know what is even funnier and more absurd than that? Shaun King is mad and leading the outrage mob at Ralph Northam and Mark Herring for wearing blackface!
You can’t make this shit up. Shaun is mad because people pretended to be black. ???????????????
