While Republicans cry foul of how Dems have treated Drumpf (rightfully so), Republicans meanwhile have some crazy unfounded hatred of Gavin Newsom, even if they themselves don’t actually live in California. More so, they’re greatly outnumbered, with approximately 2/3 of the state’s being blue (assumption from 2020 election results). It’s no secret Republicans have always hated California, but such hatred for a governor, Gavin Newsom, hasn’t been seen in 15 years since former governor Gray Davis’s recall (in which Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Republican at the time, became governor). Below, the former governor makes remarks at just what a difficult hand Gavin has been dealt.
“Nobody has been dealt a tougher hand than Gavin Newsom,” Gray Davis, the former California Democratic governor who was recalled in 2003, said in an interview. “Look, I had the energy crisis and a recession. He has a pandemic we haven’t seen for 100 years. He has the fallout from that pandemic, racial injustice, wildfires, and I think I’m leaving something out. But nobody, no living governor, has had to experience as many crises as him.”Politico
In the past year, displays of Republican stupidity (tents propped up all around northern Fresno, and recall Newsom sheeple stumbling around Wal-Marts.) became a usual eye sore. This petition in an attempt to recall Newsom requires 1.5 million signatures (1 million as of now), though it’s unlikely it will actually go through, and even if it does, Republicans are greatly outnumbered. They will only compound just how dangerous and uncooperative they are, as well humilate themselves further. I hope that this will give the Biden administration and many Democrats even more intent to just plow through Republicans, as it should be evidently clear that bipartisanship with the majority of Republicans is an utter waste of time.
