As we reported yesterday, there was a paralyzing snowstorm that hit Virginia, trapping people for hours, some as long as a day in their cars on the I-95.

But there were a couple of very bad reactions to what was already a bad situation. One was that liberal journalist Jonathan Chait attacked Republicans for trying to help people who were trapped. Another was that folks on the left tried to attack Gov-elect Glenn Youngkin for it, even though he hadn’t even taken office yet.

Never Trump commentator Jonah Goldberg was one of the folks who tweeted that the situation could be a problem for Youngkin.

Now, Goldberg did pull the tweet, but it got picked up and spread widely because he should have known better. The way to respond would have been to say, “Hey, I goofed big time.”

But in response to realizing the truth, Goldberg then had a meltdown and attacked everyone else for pointing out his mistake.

“Given that context” (of being completely wrong), ‘I was right’! And you wonder how this guy was Never Trump, when he thinks like this?

Alrighty, now. That was apparently an effort to deflect by pointing to someone who said something disgusting. That can be disgusting, and Goldberg can still be wrong.

Tucker Carlson mentioned Goldberg’s error with a savage chyron calling him a “half-wit.”

That didn’t make Goldberg at all happy, claiming that he quit Fox in part over Tucker Carlson’s show about Jan. 6.

That’s what is called a deflection. But Tucker Carlson still doesn’t want to date you.

As we reported, Fox explained they weren’t going to renew Goldberg’s contract before he announced his resignation, so that claim about Carlson’s show seems like so much posturing.

This is vintage Never Trump — it’s always the problem of the right if they criticize you. Even when you earned it.
