‘Jacka**’ Va. Gov. Northam Slammed by TV Weatherman for Blizzard Deflection

'When people say that, ‘Oh, we didn’t know it was coming,’ yeah you did... '

An HLN weatherman berated Ralph Northam, the Democrat governor of Virginia, on air for his state government’s floundering response to heavy snowfall and traffic delays, the Daily Caller reported.

Thousands of drivers were trapped on I-95 in Virginia after a major snowstorm rolled through, leaving 14 inches of snow and a 48-mile traffic jam. Some drivers were trapped for over 24 hours.

Northam, who had insisted there would only be a few inches of snow, has been fumbling through the cleanup of the debacle, pointing the finger at everyone but himself.

HLN weatherman Bob Van Dillen took a moment to call out the governor live on air:

“Who’s the jackass that said that?” Van Dillen asked. “We had it pegged for like three days (in) advance. You knew it was going to be a lot of snow.

“We were adding to it. Six to eight was the forecast, and they got about an extra four,” Van Dillen said. “Shut up, dude. That pisses me off, I got to just be honest with you. When people say that, ‘Oh, we didn’t know it was coming,’ yeah you did.”

Traffic problems started after a crash caused a buildup of cars, many of which were trapped on I-95 between 24 and 28 hours.

Northam defended his decision not to activate the Virginia National Gaurd or declare a state of emergency, citing the difficulty it would take to deploy workers and equipment on the icy roads.

Northam, who has also blamed the drivers themselves for being trapped on the snowy interstate, is now emphasizing that this was “an incredibly unusual event.”

Virginia Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin is also being blamed by loony leftists for this ordeal on Twitter, despite the fact that he has not yet taken office.
