Newsom Suffers Meltdown: 'Everybody outside This State Is B*tching' about California
Governor crumbling under pressure of recall
Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom lost his cool during an interview, complaining he was “taking a lot” of heat from the media.
In just weeks, Newsom is facing a recall effort which is obviously becoming an apparent burden after he snapped at reporters during an interview conducted last week by the Sacramento Bee.
“It would be nice if our homegrown team would be focusing on what’s right,” a frustrated Newsom lamented.
“Everybody outside this state is bitching about this state.”

“Guys, forgive me, I know I am a little pointed today, but I’ve been taking a lot from you folks for a lot of months,” the governor added.
“I should be able to express myself, too.”
Newsom also blasted Florida and Texas, saying Republican-run states could “eat their hearts out” regarding California’s economy.
“I’m a future ex-governor,” the governor stated.
"It could happen in a few weeks, it could happen in a few years.
"I love this damn state.”
Newsom also attacked conservative radio talk show host Larry Elder, who is the leading contender to replace him, according to polls.
The Los Angeles Times reported:
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.
Last week, Neon Nettle reported Newsom was now able to place blame on “Republicans and Trump supporters” for his recall election, a judge recently ruled.
The ruling allows Newsom to play politics and divert attention away from his poor job performance as a Governor.
Sacramento Superior Court Judge Laurie Earl did not block Newsom from using the claim, which will be issued to registered voters this month ahead of his Sept. 14 recall election.
