Gov Newsom buried in mockery when he argues doctors should write scripts for … housing!

While you may be left wondering if California’s Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom has been partaking in some of the legal medical marijuana now rampant in his state, the politician does deserve credit for being one of the few on the left brave enough to put a voice to the grand utopian society they actually envision.

Not that Newsom didn’t pay dearly for it in the snarky world of social media.

The governor took to Twitter to say, “Doctors should be able to write prescriptions for housing the same way they do for insulin or antibiotics.”

It’s a stance that acts as if housing can be produced and bottled like medicinal drugs — never mind the issue of who’s paying for the housing.

Nevertheless, as Newsom stated in a follow-up tweet, having a roof over your head is a “fundamental” need.

“We need to start targeting social determinants of health. We need to start treating brain health like we do physical health. What’s more fundamental to a person’s well being than a roof over their head?” he tweeted.

With Democrats having subsidized homelessness, causing it to proliferate to out-of-control levels in many American cities, they now seek a taxpayer-funded solution to a government-created problem.

Honestly speaking, the tent-lined streets in the Skid Row section of Los Angeles in a national embarrassment — one the liberal media shows little interest in.

And Newsom partially blames America’s failed mental health system that his party is almost entirely responsible for.

While there are a number of reasons to account for homelessness, it’s not by accident that this problem is almost exclusive to Democrat-run cities.

If there is a positive here, it may be that perhaps this will be the final straw that breaks the camel’s back, finally teaching Californians that elections do indeed have consequences.

Here’s just a small sampling of responses from Twitter:
