Gavin Newsom is a man in distress.
His political career is hanging by a thread, as the efforts to recall him are picking up major steam.
His advisors are reported to be very worried that he will indeed be recalled.
Much of Newsom’s trouble stems from the tyrannical lockdowns that he’s imposed, which are killing small businesses across the state.
The restaurant industry is getting hit hardest, and so when Gavin was busted whoopin’ it up mask-free at a fancy restaurant called “French Laundy” all hell broke loose.
And that controversy is the gift that keeps on giving, as Newsom is now entangled in another mess involving the swanky restaurant “French Laundry” as news spreads that the posh pad received millions in COVID relief funds.
The posh Napa Valley restaurant that hosted a dinner party last month that landed California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom in hot water reportedly received millions in COVID-19 relief funds.
KGO News’ investigative unit, the I-Team, reports, “Yountville’s highly acclaimed French Laundry received multiple loans through the Paycheck Protection Program, totaling more than $2.4 million, according to an ABC7 analysis of newly-released data from the Small Business Administration.”
The loans were disbursed by SBA-certified lenders earlier this year to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their employees on the payroll during the pandemic-induced recession.
After photos emerged showing Gov. Newsom dining at the French Laundry with a large group on Nov. 6, he was accused of hypocrisy for failing to comply with various health guidelines his administration pushed on the rest of the state. The incident has accelerated an ongoing recall campaign against the governor.
Newsom’s rich French Laundry buddies get millions, while middle-class Americans are losing everything?
Does that sound fair to you?
The American people are a reasonable group – we will put up with a lot and will always try and do the right thing…But we won’t be taken advantage of or made fools of.
And that’s what’s happening now with these COVID restrictions – we have all of these elites, like Gavin and other smug Dems telling us we have to stay home and avoid our families, while they’re out enjoying life and hob-nobbing with all their ritzy friends.
Meet Rhode Island’s Gov Gina Raimondo – she told her citizens to stay home – she said they couldn’t even go to a friends house for a visit.
And this is Gina all gussied up at a wine bar, mask-free for a xmas wine/art event.

Day after day we keep hearing these same stories, and at s0ome point, we need to say “enough.” We elected these people – they work for us, and yet we’re allowing them to destroy our lives, while they’re off eating lobster and sipping wine.
“Let them eat cake!”
It has to stop…these elites need to be removed from power. Let’s hope the effort to remove Newsom and also others, like Whitmer, are successful. This is the way that we can send a strong message that we are in charge, not them.
