Glenn Youngkin STUNS During CNN Interview – Here’s What Stood Out!

( – Governor Glenn Youngkin, who pulled off an incredible upset victory over former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe in November of 2021, didn’t pull any punches during a CNN hosted town hall on Thursday night. 

Youngkin, while on the stump in 2021, centered his campaign around cultural issues. Namely, parental rights in schools. During one, now infamous, debate, McAuliffe declared: “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” To which Youngkin promptly responded, “we must demand that they include parents in this dialogue.” 

Ever since his triumphant victory over McAullife, Youngkin has branded himself as a stalwart defender of cultural issues and parental rights in schools. 

During Thursday’s town hall, he doubled down on his previous criticisms of Critical Race Theory and other left-wing programs being disseminated in schools. Youngkin, in a response to a question regarding a pro-parent/anti-woke policy he is championing, stated that “The heart of our policy is that parents should know what’s going on in their children’s lives and have a role.” 

For Youngkin, problems arise when parents are removed from the equation and the school system steps in to fill that void. 

When asked about whether transgender students should be permitted to use a bathroom that is at odds with their biological sex, Youngkin added “I have said many, many times, we just need extra bathrooms in schools.” The Virginia Governor also said that he is not opposed to gender-neutral bathrooms. But he absolutely does not think biological men should be allowed to use female facilities. 

Additionally, Youngkin reiterated his position on men (or trans-women) participating in women’s sports: I don’t think that biological boys should be playing sports with biological girls.” 

Youngkin believes that his positions on these issues are “non-controversial” and “pretty well understood”. Those on the radical-left, however, will probably never agree.
