McAuliffe, a longtime Clinton confidante, claims Youngkin is a Donald Trump “wannabe”
Virginia Republican Governor Hopeful Glenn Youngkin called his opponent, ex Government Terrence McAuliffe Parents claiming both should not have control over the course of their children — further underscoring the fact that Democrats support mask and vaccine mandates, but President Biden’s federal move to wear face coverings on interstate transit. Was caught violating the order.
“What we saw on full display last night was a red light flashing: Terry McAuliffe’s heart,” Youngkin said on “The Ingraham Angle.”
“[H]I believe that government and politicians know better for our children and parents. He wants to exclude parents from being involved in educating our children.”
“Virginia parents have been standing up for their children’s rights for the past 20 months, fighting against school boards that are trying to impose all kinds of things on them. They’re asking schools to open, and what are you doing saw last night [McAuliffe] He wants to direct what they learn, He wants to teach our children to think, and He wants to forgive parents for all this.”
Youngkin rebukes longtime Clinton confidant for openly violating Biden USDOT Mask Mandate While at the same time others support such restrictions for Americans.
McAuliffe was caught unscathed on July 29 in the aisle of an Amtrak train leaving Pennsylvania Station in New York – standing near a placard and talking on a cell phone reminding passengers of the federal order.
“Here’s the hypocrisy of Terry McAuliffe and he wants to be the ruling class,” Youngkin said.
“His worldview is ‘I know better than you’, and yet it doesn’t need to be applied to me. We saw it a few weeks ago when he was calling for a mask mandate, and then he boards a train. And violates federal law and won’t even wear a mask,” the Falls Church Republican said.
