Ron DeSantis just embarrassed Gavin Newsom by pointing out one indisputable fact about his failed policies

Sep 12, 2022

California Governor Gavin Newsom spent the last two years attacking Ron DeSantis over his pro-freedom agenda.

But Ron DeSantis just got the last laugh.

That’s because Ron DeSantis just embarrassed Gavin Newsom by pointing out one indisputable fact about his failed policies.

Ron DeSantis is the most popular Republican elected official in America.

If Donald Trump decides not to run again in 2024, polls show Ron DeSantis would be the clear frontrunner for the GOP nomination.

No other Republican even comes close to the amount of support Trump and DeSantis have with GOP voters nationwide.

Because of his rock star status, Ron DeSantis is considered a top contender for the 2024 Republican Presidential nomination even if Trump runs again.

DeSantis’ stardom also makes him a target of attack for Democrat politicians who are considering running for President in the future.

California Governor Gavin Newsom, who is a top Democrat contender if Joe Biden decides not to seek re-election, made the decision to attack DeSantis in an effort to bolster his presence on the national stage.

On Independence Day, Newsom spent $105,000 to run a TV ad on Fox News in Florida attacking Ron DeSantis for his pro-freedom pandemic policies.

And just recently, Newsom pledged to donate $100,000 to Democrat Charlie Crist to help him defeat Ron DeSantis in November.

During a press conference on Wednesday, Ron DeSantis ripped Gavin Newsom for “chirping about Florida” while his own residents were facing a massive energy crisis.

“That’s why, you know, you hear all this stuff,” DeSantis began. “I mean, I hear a lot of people chirping about Florida from like California,” he continued.

“They’re so worried about Florida,” but “they can’t even keep the power on in California,” DeSantis added.

“I mean, are you kidding me?” he continued, before calling it flat-out “ridiculous.”

DeSantis is referring to the energy crisis in California, where residents are facing power blackouts thanks to Newsom’s radical “green” agenda.

Earlier this week, Newsom released a video where he urged Californians to reduce their use of electricity due to the severe threat facing the state’s power grid.

However, Newsom refused to accept the responsibility, instead blaming it on the “triple-digit temperatures throughout much of the state.”

“Californians, you’ve stepped up to help in a big way to keep the lights on so far,” Newsom said in the video. “But we’re heading into the worst part of this heat wave,” he continued, adding that “the risk for outages is real and it’s immediate” due to the “triple- digit temperatures throughout much of the state.”

DeSantis also pointed out the fact that, unlike California, “people actually want to visit Florida.”

The data backs up DeSantis’ claim about people fleeing California in droves to escape Newsom’s tyranny.

California officials announced in May that its population had decreased by more than 100,000 people in 2021, marking the second consecutive year the state has seen a population decline.

At the same time California is losing people, Florida’s population is booming as a result of DeSantis’ pro-freedom policies.

DeSantis said Florida “has done very well” because “we stood up for people’s freedoms.”

“We have more people employed in Florida than we did prior to COVID, and a lot of these other lockdown states still have not recovered,” DeSantis said, before explaining that Florida is still attempting to weather the storm caused by Bidenflation.

“It’s pinching people from everything from groceries to energy to housing, you name it,” DeSantis added.

DeSantis ended his press conference by putting Newsom and the Democrats on notice that “the Sunshine State does not want to replicate those same policies.”
