Gavin Newsom, the governor of California, is making a fool of himself by offering political advice to Florida’s governor, Ron DeSantis. It seems that Newsom’s state has been experiencing a population decline, while Florida’s population has increased by more than 700,000 since 2020. Yet, Newsom is currently embarking on a shadow presidential campaign tour of red states, posturing as the “true” torch-carrier of freedom in America. It’s pretty clear that he’s simply seeking attention and trying to score political points.

While Newsom was touring Florida, a prominent tech executive was brutally murdered on the streets of San Francisco. And now, Newsom is offering unsolicited pointers for DeSantis, under friendly questioning from President Biden’s former spokesperson. Newsom’s behavior and his rooting for Trump to be the GOP nominee are proof that he covets the Democratic nomination for the presidency. And, if he were to win, he would join the many Californians who are flooding away from his state.
Absolutely nothing is funnier than Gavin Newsom, who is so demonstrably terrible at his job that California lost more residents than any other state over the past few years, lecturing Ron DeSantis on how to govern as Florida continues to be the fastest growing state in the… https://t.co/mU28wd9R2v

Reporter: “Are you running in 2024?”
Biden: “Well I’ll either, I’ll either be rolling egg or uh, being the guy, you know, the guy who’s pushing them out.”

Meanwhile, the Miami Herald published a misleading headline about the arrest of Rebekah Jones’ son, who was accused of threatening to shoot up his school. Jones is a former Florida state employee who wrongly accused the DeSantis administration of hiding data about the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic from the public. Despite the fact that her son repeatedly threatened to kill classmates in writing, Jones stuck with her political fixation and grievance narrative.
DeSantis, for his part, has been using his newly-bolstered political capital to push through a conservative agenda in Tallahassee since his thumping re-election victory. And despite some debates over his new policies and proposals, the people of Florida seem to like what they’re seeing from the leader they just re-elected by nearly 20 points.
In conclusion, Newsom’s behavior doesn’t deserve any attention from DeSantis, and Jones should focus on getting her son the help he needs rather than using his arrest for her own political gain. It is clear that Florida is moving in the right direction under DeSantis’ leadership, and the people of Florida have taken notice. As for President Biden, when asked if he will run for re-election, only time will tell.
