Gavin Newsom has to decide the future of California’s Democratic politics

 

Over the next few months, California Gov. Gavin Newsom will single-handedly remake the face of the state’s Democratic Party. In his latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains how Newsom came to occupy this position of power and what that means for his own political ambitions.

    1. Easy, pick 2 Democrats. I don’t care who they are. Until the Republican party regains their sanity, don’t trust them with any amount of power. Which is regrettable, but necessary.

    2. @Sun Wukung Sun I know for 100% certain you didn’t read my post. I’m all for lockdowns AND financial aid.

      “They’ll argue lockdown vs not lockdown as if the majority of the world isn’t locking down and also paying their citizens.”
      -me
      Exactly as Germany is doing. I despise Trump. You look so stupid typing all that in vain.

    3. @Huh? not really because if we have learned anything about politicians this year it’s that they don’t care at all about any of us.

  1. Even though they are democratic I still say and always will, we need term limits for all public officials.

    1. @aaron turnupseed you’re aware that the left has guns, right? Do you not remember the warlords of CHAZ, or are you so stuck in your Parler safe space that you’re completely unaware of reality?

    2. @aaron turnupseed you do realize that you’re no different from those dirt bags of whom you speak, right? Anyone calling for violence against their own countrymen is a dirt bag, and if it comes down to it, I’ll be on whatever side is promoting peace and stability over violence. If you’re the aggressor, the end of my barrel is the last thing you’ll see.

    3. @aaron turnupseed “guns vs pronouns.”
      That’s a call to arms if I’ve ever seen it. Be very careful what you wish for, because not everyone on the right will be in your side. Libertarians will protect the rights of the left, even if we may disagree with their philosophy. They have rights. Don’t try to take them away, because there’s consequences for your actions bud.

    1. I am Governor Jerry Brown
      My aura smiles and never frowns
      Soon I will be president
      Carter power will soon go ‘way
      I will be Führer one day
      I will command all of you
      Your kids will meditate in school
      Your kids will meditate in school
      California Über Alles
      California Über Alles
      Über Alles California
      Über Alles California
      Zen fascists will control you
      Hundred percent natural
      You will jog for the master race
      And always wear the happy face
      Close your eyes, can’t happen here
      Big Bro’ on white horse is near
      The hippies won’t come back, you say
      Mellow out or you will pay
      Mellow out or you will pay
      California Über Alles
      California Über Alles
      Über Alles California
      Über Alles California
      Now it is nineteen eighty-four
      Knock-knock at your front door
      It’s the suede denim secret police
      They have come for your uncool niece
      Come quietly to the camp
      You’d look nice as a drawstring lamp
      Don’t you worry, it’s only a shower
      For your clothes, here’s a pretty flower
      Die on organic poison gas
      Serpent’s egg’s already hatched
      You will croak, you little clown
      When you mess with President Brown
      When you mess with President Brown
      California Über Alles
      California Über Alles
      Über Alles California
      Über Alles California

    1. Congresswoman Porter is a Boss. She shows up for work and rips trump’s swam creatures.
      Sadly she’s way down the list to be chosen to serve out Harris’ Senate term.
      I certainly hope she runs for Feinstein’s seat when Feinstein retires in 2024. She has my vote!

    2. I’d like to see her replace Diane Feinstein, who really needs to retire. Feinstein is in her 80s and has slowed down noticeably in the last few years.

  2. Chris I already had a crush on you and then you went and sung a lyric from Taylor Swift. The crush lives on and it stronger than before.

  3. I am a latino and by no means I want Padilla. He just plays politcal musical chairs. Porter Kannah or De Leon are better choices.

  4. Hey Newsom, where did that 3 million dollar PPP go to in your businesses? I know your waiters don’t earn 5 or 6 figures a month.

  5. To all conservatives and moderates. Get out while you can. To all who voted Democrat. Sit tight. You demanded this, you got this.

  6. I always thought they work for us. Since when are they our leaders? They are representatives and they should govern according to what benefits the state, not themselves!

    1. No no no. We have to pick some minorities…just because they’re minorities…even though there are SEVERAL more qualified people.
