ICYMI: President Trump Chimes In On Northam Debacle

President Donald Trump decided to weigh in on the blackface controversy surrounding Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) following Northam's Saturday press conference. 

Naturally, Trump used the opportunity to slam Northam's previous Republican opponent, Ed Gillespie, for failing to discover the controversial yearbook photos during the campaign when opposition research should have taken place.

Trump is right about one thing: Northam's statements are unbelievable. The guy can't get his story straight yet the people of Virginia are supposed to have faith that this man can run their state? Not a chance.

But is Trump right? If Gillespie's opposition research turned up the yearbook photos, would it have made a difference? Would voters have been upset at Northam for taking the pictures or at Gillespie's camp for bringing about the images? Would Gillespie have won the seat instead? The truth is, none of us will know. All we can do is speculate.
