Webb: VA Controversies Show Dems Are Caught in Their Own 'Impossible Standard'
Fox Nation host David Webb said Saturday that if the three embattled political leaders of Virginia were Republicans, an entirely different standard would exist.
Gov. Ralph Northam has been facing mounting calls to resign over comments on late-term abortion and a racist yearbook photo, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax is facing two sexual assault accusations and the state's attorney general, Mark Herring, recently admitted to wearing blackface at a party nearly 40 years ago.
Webb, the host of "Reality Check," said on Fox & Friends that Democrats are caught in their own "impossible standard" when it comes to accusations of racism of sexual assault.
"They're gonna stick by and ignore the calls against their hypocrisy," he said. "They don't believe in due process when it comes to the allegations of sexual assault, they won't have an honest conversation about blackface."
Webb added that people need to be honest when dealing with controversial situations like in Virginia.
He said that he doesn't view Gov. Northam as racist because decades ago, people dressed up in "outrageous" costumes.
"Outrageous and offensive doesn't automatically rise to racism," he said. "It's dishonest to automatically assign that. That's the problem with this standard."
