Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Episode 21 – Explaining The Whole Twisted Gov. Ralph Northam Story, $50,000 Bar Mitzvahs, Avo Cigars and Stagg Jr. Bourbon

It’s rare that we are recording the podcast as breaking news is happening, but that’s how it went this week as the Saga of Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam was unfolding as we were recording.

A photo of a man in blackface standing next to a person in a KKK robe was discovered on Northam’s medical school yearbook page. At first Northam admitted to taking the photo. The next day, he said it wasn’t him. And, while we were recording, Gov. Northam was holding a press conference to profess his innocence…while admitting to doing blackface another time in his life!

As Tony Katz notes, the photo is unacceptable. But why is this the story, as opposed to Gov. Northam’s acceptance and support of infanticide?

Also, the migrant caravan has been turned into a political football, and that helps no one. Lives are at stake, and we shouldn’t avoid the conversation of what this caravan is and what it means for the United States because mainstream media refuses to have it.
