Some critics online either impacted or just reacting to the winter weather in the DC region are taking it out on a guy not in office yet.
Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin does not start his term in Virginia until Jan. 15. His Democrat predecessor Ralph Northam is still in office.
On Tuesday evening, Northam updated the general public by saying while there’s still no injuries, state troopers are offering supplies to those still trapped.
As for the I-95 disaster itself, it's a situation that gained a lot of online traction earlier on Tuesday following a tweet by Senator Tim Kaine.
Kaine expected it'd take two hours to drive to DC, but it ended up taking 27 hours for him to complete the trek this time.
According to local reports, a 50-mile portion of Virginia's Interstate 95 experienced a traffic stoppage after multiple trucks collided during a winter snowstorm. Many people don't have food or water in their cars, but they do have pets and children who need those things.
As for who to blame? Some thought Youngkin already took office and that it was his job to call the National Guard.
"Looks Youngkin failed his first test in Va, with traffic stopped for 10-12 hrs on 95 in Virginia. Failure for gov."
"So, where's Republican Gov Youngkin in this I-95 mega-disaster???? 48 mile shutdown for hours & hours in VA & he’s nowhere to be found. This never happened under Dem Gov Northam—or any other Gov for that matter!!!!! Shame!"
"Does Virginia's new Governor Youngkin know people have been stranded on I-95 for 15 hours? With no help in sight?"
"Out on a limb here suggesting that, while Republican Governor of Virginia, Glenn Youngkin, couldn’t figure a way to get a 1000 cars off of frozen I-95 for 26 hours, at no time during that disaster, was CRT taught in his state. Virginia Proud."
"I-95 has not moved in 24 hours. Virginians are stuck in their cars freezing and having to pee on the side of the road…your right Steve….. YOUNGKIN EFFECT!!!!"
As for what Youngkin did Tuesday, he had a meeting with Maryland Governor Larry Hogan to plan how the pair of them can work together to cooperate on mutual regional issues.
