I'm glad he didn't upgrade that picture with a mask on to show what a hypocrite he is, sad to hear the news of his son. The "report" is, his son may of been in contact with another student with covid-19 at his Private school, and is in quarantine. But knowing the bigoted media, you can't rule out it was his dinner/birthday party for a friend. The entire party did NOT practice any of our Governor's Golden Rules that don't apply to them, but only pissants of the state he rules.
OMG, I hope that didn't butt hurt any dumpacraps because they blame Trump for not wearing a mask??? Then again, Trump isn't taking our rights away like Newsom, but you whine and cry he is and throw temper tantrums like 3 year olds.

      We really need to hope and pray Gavin Newsom runs for president some day. There are obviously more than enough to vote for him and elect him. What a beautiful picture that would, go democrats, you can all succeed.

                Newsom is such a piece of sh*t. Dining at the French Laundry without a mask with his hypocritical buddies. The only reason he apologized is because he got caught. He imposes a curfew so he can stay out from 10:00 p.m. - 5:00 a.m. and no one else can.

Give it up with the French Laundry! Yep, stupid thing to do, but you gotta admit you’ve all done something similar in the past few months, even though, just like Newsom, you knew it was not recommended.
Yep, he’ll run for Prez someday! And he used to be married to Don Jr’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle! (Ugh! The only thing I hold against him!) She has already had Covid and now Don Jr does too! Ha!

    No A-Hole I don't do hypocritical situations that will endanger my life. I am not an ignorant Demorat such as you. It is so easy for you to just dismiss the actions of this piece of sh*t Governor. He got caught this time and I am sure that there were many of these gatherings that he has attended.
