VA Dem Candidate Walks-Away During WJLA TV Interview

Candidates for VA Gov: Terry McAuliffe, Glenn Youngkin

Terry McAuliffe, the Democrat running for Virginia governor, has stormed out of an interview with a local news channel, telling the reporter he should have asked 'better questions.'

ABC affiliate WJLA-TV in Washington, DC published in-depth interviews with McAuliffe and Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin on Tuesday, but noted that McAuliffe cut the 20 minute interview short just halfway through after being grilled on topics including the teaching of critical race theory and vaccine mandates. 

In the interview recorded last week, a McAuliffe staffer is heard interjecting 10 minutes in to the scheduled 20-minute interview, prompting the candidate to cut short the questioning from reporter Nick Minock. 

The Walk-off comes at the 11:00 time mark:

'Alright, we are over. That's it. That's it. Hey I gave you extra time. C'mon man,' McAuliffe tells the reporter. 'You should have asked better questions early on. You should have asked questions your viewers care about.

  1. That's 'dem-speak' which means the reporter was asking questions Mcauliffe didn't want to answer.
