Speaker Nancy Pelosi outrageously called embattled Governor Gavin Newsom a “great governor” on Tuesday while asserting that recalling him would be bad for “children or other living things” and branded it a “nuisance.”
Pelosi was speaking in San Francisco in support of President Joe Biden’s American Rescue Plan and tens of billions that will be spent on federal rental assistance. She was asked by reporters about the recall against the California governor and stated, “We have to vote and we have to reject the recall.”
She went on to say that she is “very, very proud” of his record. “He’s been a great governor, and I’d like to see this, shall we say, nuisance — but it’s part of what you can do, so we respect that — but we have to also get out the vote,” Pelosi declared. The Democrat also called Newsom a “groundbreaking” leader on progressive issues.
“Reject the recall,” she commanded. “It’s not good for you. It’s not good for children or other living things.”

Pelosi arrogantly dismissed the recall. She contended that Democrats aren’t very concerned over it even though Republicans are “enthusiastic” about the outcome. She called the impending election “not a very wholesome purpose,” and added that the Democrats “just have to get on with it.”
The Speaker of the House went on to announce Thursday that she’s activated her political operation to keep the Democratic governor in office. “We respect it,” Pelosi said. “But we do not like it, and we will defeat it.”
“I want everybody to get out the vote,” she railed. “I have my own operation working to get out the vote [and] making calls to defeat the recall of our governor.”
That vote on Sept. 14 will determine if Newsom exits the governor’s mansion or stays put. The ballot will also ask voters which of the 46 candidates should replace Newsom if he’s ejected.
Republican conservative radio host Larry Elder is the favorite to replace Newsom and leads the pack right now. According to reports, he stands a very good chance of winning. Other candidates include former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, businessman John Cox, and former House Rep. Doug Ose.
As for Newsom, he’s telling voters to vote “no” on the recall and leave the selection of his replacement blank.
Newsom angrily vented to reporters this week lamenting about people “b****ing about” problems in California such as taxes, crime, and homelessness.
“It would be damn nice if our homegrown team would be focusing on what’s right!” Newsom snapped. “Everybody outside this state is b****ing about this state.”
“Guys, forgive me, I know I am a little pointed today but I’ve been taking a lot from you folks for a lot of months,” he said. “I should be able to express myself, too.”
“I’m a future ex-governor,” he surprisingly admitted. “It could happen in a few weeks, it could happen in a few years. I love this damn state.”
A Los Angeles Sergeant with the Police Protective League recently expressed alarm after Newsom dismissed rising crime and felonies taking place all over California; declaring that he is living in a “fantasy world.”
“That’s a fantasy world. Where are we living in? I mean, you could look at the numbers throughout California and the rest of the country. Crime is increasing. It is surging, and there’s no consequences,” Los Angeles Police Protective League Vice President Sgt. Jerretta Sandoz said on Fox News.
“There’s no repercussions for these criminals that feel that they could go in and do what they want. And it’s because of these laws. That statement is not true. The numbers don’t lie,” she remarked.

A SurveyUSA poll shows that a majority of likely voters support recalling Newsom with a narrow margin of 51 percent to 40 percent. But those numbers for and against Newsom seem to shift daily at this point.
Californians are frustrated with Newsom over the pandemic and lockdowns, COVID restrictions, and the state’s skyrocketing cost of living. They are fed up with the homeless, illegal immigration, massive taxation, and general mismanagement of the state.
People just want Newsom gone and they are not surprised by Pelosi’s invocation of “children” in defending him:
Newsom has been behind all these bad laws and policies that have created more crime , homelessness, poverty
But of course Biden , Pelosi and the rest of the Dem establishment say he’s great !

It’s what the people want , not the children. It’s not always about the children. They aren’t paying the taxes and suffering from this Governor.

Homeless crisis and all those tents and poop on the side walk was too much. It’s going to cost him the job.
