It’s refreshing to see a Leftist’s true colors the minute he/she/they/etc. are backed into a corner or facing credible threats to their hold on power.
Such is the case with California’s failure of a governor Gavin Newsom.
During a recent interview, Newsom completely lost his cool, complaining that he has been “taking a lot” of heat from the media in the past year.
Newsom, who faces a recall effort in mere weeks, is seen snapping at reporters during an interview conducted last week by the Sacramento Bee, according to video clips that have gone viral on social media.

“It would be nice if our homegrown team would be focusing on what’s right. Everybody outside this state is bitching about this state.”
Newsom also lashed out at Florida and Texas, saying the Republican-run states could “eat their hearts out” regarding California’s economy.
Amidst his temper tantrum, Newsom even admitted what many conservatives have been hoping for years now:
“I’m a future ex-governor,” he stated.
This is not the first time that Newsom’s campaign to stay in power has turned negative in recent days.
On Thursday, the governor attacked conservative radio talk show host Larry Elder during a Zoom call with campaign volunteers, targeting the candidate who is the leading contender to replace him, according to polls.
For months Newsom has criticized the recall effort as the handiwork of far-right supporters of former President Trump and a Republican Party intent on undermining his election in 2018, shying away from personal attacks on the candidates hoping to take his place in Sacramento.
But in a Zoom call with volunteers working on his anti-recall campaign, Newsom hit out at Elder, calling him a major Trump supporter — a rallying cry in a state won overwhelmingly by President Biden in the 2020 presidential election. Newsom also accused Elder of being a threat to abortion rights established under the landmark Roe vs. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision in 1973.
The recall election is scheduled to be held on September 14, 2021.
