Practically every Democrat in office wants Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s head… and Fox News analyst Judge Napolitano has a theory why this is happening. According to Napolitano, Dems want Northam out so they can go back to hammering Trump about being a racist.

Stuck in Charlottesville
Democrats refuse to let Trump’s comments after the 2017 Charlottesville riot drop. Trump tried to pacify everyone with his comments and ended up being labeled a racist for doing so. During the Charlotteville incident, it was clear not everyone who attended the event in defense of the Confederate monuments were part of neo-Nazi groups.
Southerners are often passionate about their heritage because many of them had past family members who lost their lives in the Civil War. While these individuals are not defending racism, they also don’t want their history to be erased — which is what progressives are trying to do.
Trump had stated there were people on both sides that were responsible for inciting violence. “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides.”
The president clarified he was not defending the neo-Nazis in the group, saying, “Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”
Ever since then, however, the narrative that Trump is a racist has remained set in stone for Democrats.
Contrary to how the media describes him, Trump is willing to work across party lines to get things done.
As I have stated before, you don’t necessarily have to like every piece of legislation, but if you can live with that legislation because it enables us to get something done that is near and dear to our values, then so be it.
To Napolitano’s point, that is not how this current class of Democrats works, though. Whether it benefits their constituents or not is NOT the concern here.
Their purpose is to continue this racist narrative about Trump, even if it is not true. And, if they have to take down one of their own to make that happen, they will.
Quite frankly, no matter how much pressure the Dems put on him, they cannot force him to resign because their state constitution does not allow for his impeachment because it happened before he took office.
And, the longer he remains in office, the longer Dems are forced to bite their tongue from continuing to push this false and vicious narrative about President Donald Trump.
