Social media has roasted liberal news hosts for their ‘meltdown’ as the results came in showing Republican Glenn Youngkin was going to be victorious in Virginia.

Youngkin, 54, pulled off a stunning upset to beat Democrat Terry McAuliffe, becoming the state’s first red Governor since 2009.

Hosts on MSNBC and CNN were unable to contain their shock at McAuliffe’s defeat, with Jake Tapper looking at a map of the election results and saying flatly: ‘Oh my God.’

Commentator Joy Reid joined Rachel Maddow on MSNBC and launched an astonishing tirade against ‘dangerous’ Republicans, warning that voting for Youngkin – ‘a soft white nationalist’ – was a gateway to more ‘hardcore nationalism.’

Over on CNN, Van Jones said that Youngkin was to Trump what the Delta variant was to Covid-19, saying it’s the ‘same disease, but spreads a lot faster and can get a lot more places.’

Their shock and disappointment at the result gave people on Twitter endless joy, with one jokingly comparing it to the ‘seven stages of grief.’

‘Liberals are going through the seven stages of grief live on CNN. LMFAO,’ tweeted SoWoke2018. ‘Let’s go Brandon!’

Others shared their favourite GIFs of Donald Trump, the former President pointing at a reporter saying, ‘Wrong,’ or footage of him creasing up with laughter.

One user, named USA Live Free or Die, tweeted a series of laughing emojis with the caption: ‘Melting down.’ 

Jones, a former Obama administration official, told CNN colleagues: ‘The stakes are high. When this election is over in Virginia, we will know… have we seen the emergence of the Delta variant of Trumpism? The Delta variant of Trumpism.

‘In other words, Youngkin, same disease, but spreads a lot faster and can get a lot more places.’ 

He later took to Twitter to clarify his point. ‘My point is that playing on racial fears by demagoguing [critical race theory] furthers dangerous aspects of Trumpism, just in friendlier form,’ he wrote. ‘Did not mean to imply that human beings are diseases.’
