Gov. Gavin Newsom is fighting for his political life. It’s clear that he’s scared, and it brings a sense of satisfaction to see him this way. It’s also clear that he’s angry. Now why would someone who believes he’s in the right feel scared and angry?
His anti-recall campaign is basically a series of lies. Topping his list of lies is a statement he made regarding the state’s response to COVID-19: “We made sure that science — not politics — drove our decisions.”
Well that’s just plain nuts on the face of it. California has been literally making it up as it goes along with restrictions that don’t even make sense. It even rejected Centers for Disease Control guidelines, and Newsom has yet to disclose what his “science” is.
Next on his list of lies is who he is blaming for the recall effort: “Anti-vaxxers, QAnon conspiracy theorists and anti-immigrant Trump supporters… and violent white supremacists like the Proud Boys, who attacked our nation’s Capitol on Jan. 6.”
Rubbish. The effort to recall Newsom spans quite a variety of voters, including Democrats. I hope he’s tossed. Maybe he can go back to running a winery and stay the hell out of our lives.
