Following a mysterious trip to Baja, California, the Democrat governor of California, Gavin Newsom, apparently tested positive for coronavirus.
“After displaying very minor symptoms, Governor Gavin Newsom has tested positive for COVID-19, according to his office. For the following five days, he will isolate. His office confirms that his statewide tour would still take place the next week,” Ashley Zavala, the California Capitol Correspondent tweeted on Wednesday.
Despite the state of emergency brought on by the winter storm that brought about record-breaking rainfall in certain places and snow up in Southern California’s mountain villages, Newsom returned to California this week after an enigmatic trip to Baja, California, as Breitbart News reported:
“In mountain towns, desperate locals remained stuck while Newsom was abroad, with many of them running out of food, gasoline, and medicine. The promised assistance from the California National Guard had failed to reach several locations.”
“The governor has returned to the state, according to an eight-word news release from Newsom’s office released at 11:26 a.m. on Sunday. Newsom’s “schedule” was mentioned in the headline, but no further information was provided.”
Some Californians have complained that they feel abandoned and frustrated because of this.
This week, Newsom also made a point of ratcheting up the anti-abortion sentiment when he threatened to boycott Walgreens if it refused to carry women’s abortion drugs.
“California will not do business with @walgreens or any other organization that panders to extremists and jeopardizes the lives of women.” On Monday, Newsom declared, “We’re done.”
Following Walgreens’ announcement that it will abide by at least 20 GOP states that have banned abortions, Newsom made his statement. Attorneys general has cautioned that supplying such medications via Walgreens would be illegal.
Republican Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey declared in a letter that was also signed by 19 other attorneys general, “I will uphold the laws as stated. That includes laws safeguarding women and their unborn children’s health.”
