CROSS-POSTED FROM BLUE VIRGINIA

UPDATE 10:08 am Sunday: Ethan Lynne respondedWe all know that Youngkin has an agenda to attack and endanger students, and last night proved that…I will not be intimidated by these attacks and will continue to be a voice for students across the commonwealth.” 

UPDATE #2: Also note that the original tweet that started all this was Ethan commenting on this story by Virginia Public Media (“Historian resigns from Executive Mansion position highlighting stories of enslaved“). So instead of addressing what’s going on at the Governor’s Mansion, they instead decided to…yep, attack a teenager for tweeting about the story! Here are the original tweets by Ethan Lynne that led “Team Youngkin” to attack him.

**********************************

After a HORRENDOUS start to his governorship (a judge blocking his absurd/lawless executive order on masking in schools; getting taunted in an Alexandria Safeway to “read the room, buddy!”; an approval rating barely above water, during the normal “honeymoon” period, no less; etc), one can understand to an extent (even if it’s all his own fault) why Glenn Youngkin and his team might be frustrated at this point. But seriously?  Attacking a high school student? This is completely pathetic on every level – as Sen. Louise Lucas tweets:

“Excuse me, did this come from an official account of the Governor of Virginia?!?! Every reporter in the state needs to get on this immediately. The Governor is attacking a high school student. Governor- this is a disgrace and you owe Ethan a public apology immediately.”

And as Del. Mike Mullin says:

An official account of @GovernorVA  is attacking a child. A grown man bullying a kid. I don’t even think Trump did that.
