As you can see, a guy who snuck in by making himself look like a Democrat with a pink hat and pink mask then broke out the “Ron DeSantis for President 2024” sign during Newsom’s speech, something that must have been uncomfortable for the California governor.
Louder with Crowder, commenting on the incident, said:
The best part is that he went deep undercover to sneak in with a pink hat, SCHMOID mask and all.
In all honesty? IF we had Ron DeSantis vs Gavin Newsom running for president, I think it would be great for America. Joe Biden vs. Donald Trump will be about one thing: Trump. Biden will campaign on “ORANGE MAN BAD.” Trump will campaign on how everyone is unfair and mean to Trump.
Newsom vs. DeSantis? There isn’t a more-perfect debate between the two competing ideologies in America. BOTH represent states where those two ideologies have been put into action and he can see clear results to compare. America can be more like Florida. Or America can be more like California.
Now have the two governors crisscross the country and make the case to the American people. In a perfect world, we’d get the national debate the country needs.
Reporting on Newsom’s inauguration speech and the contrast he attempted to make between California and red states, the Sacramento Bee reported that:
On the second anniversary of the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, Gavin Newsom marched to California’s statehouse to deliver an inaugural speech that celebrated California’s freedoms and the state’s resistance to forces that “want to take the nation backward.”
“More than any people, in any place, California has bridged the historical expanse between freedom for some, and freedom for all,” he said under skies that were cloudy but dry for the first time in days.
“Freedom is our essence, our brand name – the abiding idea that right here anyone from anywhere can accomplish anything.”
Newsom, overwhelmingly re-elected in November, began the celebration of his second term Friday at Sacramento’s Tower Bridge, where he was joined by family, top state officials such as Attorney General Rob Bonta, trade union workers, civil rights activist Dolores Huerta and other notables to walk one mile down the Capitol Mall toward the statehouse. It was intended as counterpoint to the 2021 attack on the nation’s Capitol, though Newsom reportedly did not complete the full march and took a waiting car to the final inauguration site in front of the state Capitol building.
Then, in a wide-ranging speech after being sworn in, Newsom slammed red-state leaders like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and painted California as a progressive bastion. He touted some of his biggest accomplishments, like enshrining reproductive rights in the state’s constitution and setting ambitious climate goals. He also acknowledged some darker chapters of the state’s story, like Japanese internment during World War II and unmet needs around housing and homelessness.
