Weatherman Blasts VA’s “Jackass” Governor Northam Live On The Air


Someone give this man an award!

No, for real…can someone put his name in the running for an Emmy?

There is no more perfect 30 seconds of TV than what I’m about to show you.

First let me give you the backstory…

So Virginia and a lot of the East Coast is getting pounded by devastating snow storms.

Traffic is grinding to a halt.

And I know this will come as a shock to you, but the blue states did NOT prepare well for it.

They didn’t prepare the roads, didn’t have a plan ready….typical liberal failures.

And instead of taking responsibility, Gov. Northam blamed the weatherman for not telling him a storm was coming.

Well, that did not sit well with one superstar weatherman who fired back: “Who is this jackass saying he didn’t know it was coming?  We’ve had it pegged for three nights now!”

An instant classic.

Here’s more, from The Daily Caller:

A snow-covered I-95 in Virginia left thousands of drivers stuck on the highway for several hours, with some trapped for more than a day. After HLN anchor Robin Meade said Northam insisted that his administration thought there would only be a few inches of snow, rather than a foot, meteorologist Bob Van Dillen called the governor out.

“Who’s the jackass that said that?” Van Dillen asked. “We had it pegged for like three days (in) advance. You knew it was going to be a lot of snow.”

“We were adding to it. Six to eight was the forecast, and they got about an extra four,” Van Dillen said. “Shut up, dude.”

The traffic problems began after a crash caused a buildup of cars. Democratic Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine remained trapped on the road for over 27 hours during the ordeal.

“I was trying to get up to D.C. for a voting rights meeting, I’m working on voting rights issues, and the meeting was at 8:00 and I wanted to do it in-person,” Kaine told CNN from Quantico, Virginia, more than two hours before he would arrive at the Capitol. “It’s turned into what will end up being a 27 or 28 hour ordeal, unlike anything I have ever seen.”

Northam defended his decision not to activate the Virginia National Gaurd or declare a state of emergency, citing the difficulty it would take to deploy workers and equipment on the icy roads.

“That pisses me off, I got to just be honest with you,” Van Dillen said. “When people say that, ‘Oh, we didn’t know it was coming,’ yeah you did.”

Now you gotta see it for yourself:
