The most hated man in California might be its governor, Gavin Newsom. Because of his draconian measures against COVID-19, the California population has suffered greatly and is now circulating a petition to recall Newsom.
The petition currently has over one million signatures. However, President Joe Biden’s name isn’t one of them.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki tweeted on February 9th that Biden “clearly opposes any effort to recall” Newsom.
In addition to sharing a commitment to a range of issues with @GavinNewsom from addressing the climate crisis to getting the pandemic under control, @POTUS clearly opposes any effort to recall @GavinNewsom— Jen Psaki (@PressSec) February 9, 2021
It’s because of Newsom’s efforts to get “the pandemic under control” that led to the petition to recall him. And he didn’t help his cause by flaunting the rules he himself imposed to control the pandemic. While he dined at expensive restaurants, Californians watched their businesses close down. Newsom’s been living like a decadent king, while his subjects are the toiling peasants.
Biden appears to be choosing to side with Newsom because of his views on climate change. Is “addressing the climate crisis” as important as alleviating the hardships of his suffering constituents? Last we checked, the climate crisis hadn’t caused widespread economic problems for Californians.
It’s clear that Biden and Newsom are focused on an agenda that clearly does not help the American people, even though helping them was the reason both were elected to their respective offices.
