AG Candidate John Adams Tweets Insults When Asked to Share His Position on Muslim Ban

by Democratic Party of Virginia

John Adams wants to be the Commonwealth's top lawyer, yet, he's been conspicuously silent on the most pressing and impactful legal issue facing the country: Donald Trump's discriminatory executive action...

...Until he was asked by @VADemocrats:


You'll notice he doesn't condemn or express any concern about Trump's action - an action that has launched the legal world into discussion, debate, and action. Instead, he hurled a stunningly elitist Trump-like insult at Attorney General Herring - who has been working around the clock seeking clarification on the action.

"For a moment, let's put aside the xenophobic, discriminatory, and un-American implications of this executive order. At the very least, discussing  complex legal issues is part of the job, and John Adams is already failing the leadership test. Virginians deserve to know where he stands," - Emily Bolton, Communications Director of the Democratic Party of Virginia
