WARNING: Bad language in the following post. Don’t blame me. Blame Democratic consultant Ben Tribbett who unleashed a vile verbal attack on Virginia school children. There is no way to point this out without repeating its vulgarity.

If you had any doubt that the increasingly unbalanced Virginia Democrats were suffering from Youngkin Derangement Syndrome, take a look at the Twitter account of one of their top consultants, reacting to the executive order. of the governor who puts an end to the forced masking of schoolchildren.

Ben Tribbett is the founder of a Democratic consulting firm in Northern Virginia called Pocket Aces Consulting:


He gleefully calls small children “assholes” while simultaneously urging teachers to punish unmasked children at school by giving them low grades.

And this pinhead advises prominent Virginia Democrats.

Then, when Republican Congressman Nick Freitas reacted to Tribbett’s disgusting tweet, the consultant lashed out. No surprise there. Democrats hate Freitas after he drew national attention last week for his magnificent speech on the House floor in response to vitriol coming from Democrats in the General Assembly.

Raw, childish and totally out of bounds. What’s wrong with this guy?

Is this raunchy behavior the way Democratic consultants do business? Will Virginia Democrats now distance themselves from Tribbett or rush to him for advice?

It turns out that a story in The Richmond Times-Dispatch this week accidentally discovered State Senator Louise Lucas’ intimate relationship with the rude consultant.

Lucas, accustomed to tongue baths from friendly reporters, was apparently surprised when Virginia Mercury reporter Ned Oliver attempted to ask him a tough question in the Capitol hallway. His overreaction to the encounter on Twitter sparked a story in the TD“News Group Concerned After Virginia Senator Publicly Attacked Reporter Who Asked Him Questions,”

In it, Lucas admitted to ghostwriters writing some of his abrasive Tweets.

In an interview, Lucas said that Ben Tribbett, a political consultant from Northern Virginia, and other consultants post “some” of the tweets from his account. She said she pre-approved anything that was posted.

“I call him for advice and he helps me sometimes,” she said of Tribbett, who she says receives no pay for the work.

Hmmm. I sure hope Lucas remembers to flag Tribbett’s help as “in-kind contributions.”

She does, right?

Thanks to Richmond’s diary, we now know that the person who sometimes impersonates Lucas on Twitter is actually a man who calls little kids “assholes.”

Good to know.

According to the Virginia Public Access Project, several members of the General Assembly paid Tribbett’s company for consulting work in 2021.

The list includes Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, delegates Kaye Kory, Nadarius Clark and Patrick Hope and senators Scott Surovell and Chap Petersen.

Oh, and the VPAP says the Virginia Democratic Party wrote a check for $40,903 to Tribbett’s company.

These politicians, including the Democratic Party apparatchiks, must speak out.

Either they agree with Tribbett that the unmasked Virginia school kids are “assholes” or they’re not.

Were waiting.
