Gov. Gavin Newsom Snaps During Interview with California’s Media

Gov. Gavin Newsom Snaps During Interview with California’s Media

‘Everybody outside this state is b—-ing about this state’

The strain of actually campaigning during a tight race is clearly showing on California Governor Gavin Newsom.

I wrote that the governor faces a “wall of apathy” among Democratic voters, and the “unsophisticated ones” want him recalled. The struggle to avoid being booted out shows that this is the first time Newsom has had to work to make his case to the electorate in quite some time.

Campaign fatigue may be setting in, as the governor gave a profanity-filled response during an interview with reporters the many of the state’s leading news media outlets…complaining about other states.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom snapped last week while talking to reporters, ranting that everyone outside the Golden State is “b—-ing” about it.

Newsom, who is facing a closer-than-anticipated recall election, spoke to the Sacramento Bee in an interview last week in which he grew angry at critics of California.

Clips from interview have since gained steam online, where they have been making the rounds on social media.

“It would be nice if our homegrown team would be focusing on what’s right,” the embattled governor yelled. “Everybody outside this state is b—-ing about this state.”

The trouble is that California’s rules are toxic not only to our businesses but to those in other states. The most recent example is the latest regulation impacting the distribution of pork products, which required two US Senators from the great state of Iowa to intervene.

Speaking of toxic to California…the response that is getting the most play is his answer to the press query about many of the policies that have been enacted that are devastating the state.

Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom used profanity extensively during a tense interview with state newspapers on issues urgent to Californians late last month.

While answering policy questions from writers and editors of several California newspapers, including the Sacramento Bee, the Modesto Bee, the Fresno Bee, and the San Luis Obispo Tribune, a seemingly annoyed Newsom said he was proud of people from out of state “b****ing” about California. The interview took place on July 29 and was published on Aug. 5 by the Sacramento Bee.

“California has the nation’s highest housing cost, highest gasoline prices, and highest utilities. Wage growth has been spectacular in Silicon Valley but not so much for areas along the coast and in some inland areas,” an interviewer said to Newsom over a video call. “How do you make the case that you as governor can deliver the California dream to all Californians?”

The governor responded with a lengthy rundown “off the top of [his] damn head” on the sectors that California dominates outside of Silicon Valley tech companies, including logging and manufacturing.

The interview was pretty dramatic and can be viewed via the Sacramento Bee.

It also hints that he may accept that he may not survive the recall election (emphasis mine).

When we met virtually with California Gov. Gavin Newsom in the late afternoon on July 29, we didn’t expect him to be defiant, sometimes angry, as well as thoroughly fascinating and intense from beginning to end.

But Newsom was all that and much more over 60 minutes of tough questions posed to him by opinion writers and editors from the California newspapers within the McClatchy Company: The Sacramento Bee, The Modesto Bee, The Fresno Bee, and The San Luis Obispo Tribune.

The governor sometimes pounded the table as he spoke. He challenged the premise of more than one question posed to him. He spoke of policy decisions that he predicted would be viewed favorably by history even if voters “kicked” him out in this recall.

According to California Globe’s Katy Grimes, during the 6-1/2 minute interview, Gov. Newsom said ‘damn’ nine times and slammed his desk with his hand and fist 59 times. Indeed, an aerobic workout!

I sounds to me like he is very close to the breaking point, good.

    Maybe there isn’t going to be enough fraud to save him. He doesn’t sound very confident.

      Maybe he’s afraid that the party isn’t going to back him enough to save him. He is a white, het male, after all.

        The Democrat machine imagines it can unleash their racist forces and remain untouched, with whites still holding all power. Hilarious, right? We know how this ends for the white/upper classes, right? It’s the same thing over and over, throughout history, but THIS TIME, they will be immune from the forces they have spawned, supported, empowered. This time, they won’t be put against a wall and shot or dragged out of their homes and beheaded or set on fire. Yeah, right.

        If I didn’t care about my country, I would not fight and would just let this play out. And laugh and laugh as they slowly realize their horrific mistake, what their preening devaluation of the masses they seek to divide and conquer will culminate in. It happens every. single. time. But these narcisist losers think they can do it better. Sigh.

        We can’t let it happen, but it would be funny if we did. 😛

          Fuzzy – If this were some other country we would all marvel at the clueless, tone-deaf leadership. We would wonder how they could be so stupid. The tragic consequences are all too predicable.

          But somehow most Americans seem to lose the clear-minded ability to reason when it comes to their own country. There’s a belief that “it can’t happen here” like we are somehow immune from the horrible results of failed leadership. We also tend to give the benefit-of-the-doubt to fellow Americans who spout the Anti-American bullshit – like they are just misguided kids will come around one day.

          I think we have to realize that there are people within our ranks (in America) who want us DEAD. They wand America DEAD. They are at WAR with us. We have to act accordingly. I think that is what Fine keeps saying with secession. We have to separate from those who intend to harm us and harm America.

    He’s just a corrupt schmuck, out from the same California hack factory as Kamala Harris.

    Corruption and his absence of any leadership talent, je really sucks in general.

    What a lousy governor.

Damn! The damn CA newspapers have been conspiring against him! Who the hell knew? (He should be more mindful of his language.)

That’s a nice white shirt in that empty suit.

Imagine this thin skinned clown taking the hell the media unleashed on Palin or Trump.

When facts are not on your side, pound the table.

The Sacramento Bee has a Pay Wall
Where else can we see “Mr. Yesterday II” out do NY’s Cuomo interacting with the media.

It looks like the news media have decided that Newsom is weakened, and they will turn against him. It’s much like with Cuomo, whom the news media protected until he looked weak, and then they savaged him.

It will be interesting to see whom the news media will anoint to be the new governor.

Poor, poor, pitiful Gov-Gav.
Born into ruling class elitist privilege, political opportunist, and victim of his own policies, destined to reside in the ash heap of history….
