Dem VA governor candidate: My work treating kids’ neurological disorders will help me deal with Trump

Published

on

Virginia Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, who is the Democratic Party’s nominee for governor in Virginia this year, says that his background treating children with neurological disorders will help him work constructively with President Donald Trump.

In an interview with The Guardian’s Ben Jacobs, Northam explained that he’d be willing to work with Trump when it would help out the state of Virginia. When asked by Jacobs how he could work with Trump despite his pointed criticism of the president, Northam said his past work as a pediatrician has helped to prepare him for dealing with Trump’s personality.

“I’m a neurologist, so I’m used to dealing with a lot of different minds,” he said. “And even being a pediatric neurologist, that gives me more perspective.”

Northam’s profile at the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters says that his clinical interests include epilepsy and neuromuscular disorders, neither of which seems to afflict president Trump.

Earlier this year, Northam called out Trump as a “narcissistic maniac” during the Democratic primary, although he has dialed down his harsher criticisms of the president the closer he’s gotten to the general election.

Published

on

President Donald Trump lobbed racist abuse at four Democratic congresswomen over the weekend -- and his advisers say his addiction to Fox News is at least partially to blame.

The president's advisers have been trying to convince him that outrageous tweets and comments do way more harm than good -- his lowest poll numbers came after his remarks about Charlottesville and after slandering "sh*thole" countries -- but they said Trump has a skewed perception about his popularity with minority voters, reported Politico.
