During a speech at a fundraising dinner, Virginia Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin told attendees that the real uprising will be Election Day 2020.
Maggie Haberman tweeted:
People who focus on Youngkin’s comments miss that he told a group of lawmakers threatened by rioters in the Capitol that the “real” riot was on November 3rd. And there were some cheers. https://t.co/mr95xCMEI1

Youngkin showed his true colors right after election day. He’s not a moderate in the fleece he fought for. He’s a Trump clone and will have a huge impact on how the Virginia presidential election is run in 2024.
It was not before Virginia voters, who either did not show up to vote or switched from Biden to Youngkin, saw that they had made a big mistake.
For the next four years, a state that was a ten-point win for Joe Biden in 2020 remains stuck with a Trump clone. Glenn Youngkin was never what he sold to voters, and now that the ballots have been tallied and he’s won, Youngkin can show the nation who he really is.
