Va. Gov. Northam Blames DRIVERS for Getting Stranded Overnight on Snowy Interstate

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat, tried to blame drivers for the build-up on Interstate 95 this week that left thousands of drivers stranded for over 24 hours in the grip of a vicious winter snowstorm.

“We gave warnings, and people need to pay attention to these warnings, and the less people that are on the highways when these storms hit, the better,” Northam told the Washington Post on Tuesday.

Northam has come under heavy criticism for the disaster on I-95, which was insufficiently plowed after a heavy snowfall, leading to multiple car accidents and a severe traffic build-up.

“I’ve contacted the governor, he finally came out this morning and said he has shelters opening up. It’s a day late and a dollar short,” said father Joseph Catalano, who was one of the drivers stuck in the traffic after taking his family on a post-Christmas trip to Disney World.

Another driver affected was Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., who vowed to look into the incident after spending 27 hours stranded on the highway.

Leftists initially tried to blame incoming Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin, who has not even been sworn into office yet.

But that didn’t stick, so Democrats had to find someone else to blame. According to Northam, that would be the drivers themselves.
