While it is mainly said the true nature of a man is rooted in his character, Terry McAuliffe, the Democrat gubernatorial candidate for Virginia, seems to think otherwise.
In a recent interview with a local television station, he and his staffer ended up scolding the reporter asking him a series of questions he didn’t like. A lot of Americans, while not understanding his reason, have weighed in on this.
In light of his political intentions, everyone believes McAuliffe could have acted better.

The Reporter’s Side of the Story
According to the report given by WJLA 7News, it was deduced the timeframe slated for the interview was twenty minutes. The twenty minute timeframe was to interview Terry McAuliffe and his strong Republican opponent, Glenn Youngkin.
Surprisingly, while Youngkin’s interview went smoothly, McAuliffe went bonkers, ten minutes into the interview. That’s because McAuliffe assumed the line of questioning Nick Minock was throwing at him was not ideal for a man of his status.

Nick started by inquiring about some of the comments McAuliffe made at the last gubernatorial debate. Although, McAuliffe’s response was commendable, he went on using mild derogatory remarks against his opposition.
For most of the somewhat short-lived interview, Nick Minock asked questions related to Terry McAuliffe’s plans to improve education. While his answers were impressive, things did seem to take a wrong turn.
Nick inquired into how McAuliffe’s tenure as governor (if elected) would handle crime in Virginia. It was just after the first question that a staffer of McAuliffe made a move to end the interview abruptly.
This reaction from McAuliffe and his staffer raised a lot of questions amongst inhabitants of Virginia. The question dropping from the lips of many is this: does it mean if Terry McAuliffe wins the election, he has no plans of ensuring the security of Virginia residents?
The Implication of Terry McAuliffe’s Reaction
Recently, a lot of Democrats seem to be in the news for the wrong reasons. Biden is currently being blasted about his new bill; Kamala Harris appears to know how best to flout the law, and now, Terry McAuliffe seems to be continuing the trend.
This leaves one wondering: is there something unknown to everyday Americans about members of the Democrat Party?
While the polls pull closer, there is so much the electorates want to know about their next governor. If anything, McAuliffe’s staffer should understand any line of question, for now, is a valid one. At the same time, one cannot teach McAuliffe and his staffer their political places.
Many Americans have begun to wonder if a man who finds it hard to respond to a mild line of questioning would be able to address the plethora of real time issues presented to him by Virginians.
