Gavin Newsom's Attempt to One-Up Trump Over CA Homeless Crisis Ends Badly When Facts Are Introduced

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) might have graduated from Santa Clara University with a B.S. in political science, but in reality his true “BS” degree comes from Pass the Buck University, where he graduated at the tip-top of his class.


Where Newsom excels most in the BS department is in his spin over California’s homeless crisis, which has long been a national story under his direction both as Governor and in previous public service roles he’s held in California, including as Mayor of San Francisco.

Newsom took to the Twitter machine shortly after the Christmas holiday to try and dunk on President Trump, who slammed both the governor and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) over the homeless issue in a tweet:

The governor responded a few hours later by comparing Trump to the Grinch:

Later, Newsom retweeted a few tweets from his official Twitter account that stated he had taken action on the homeless crisis earlier this month “in the face of roadblocks from the Trump Admin”:


Newsom’s continued attempts at deflecting for his gross mismanagement when it comes to California’s large homeless population did not go unnoticed by Twitter users who took him to school on where the blame really should be placed:


Yep. As I’ve written before, Newsom was a member of the SF Board of Supervisors from January 8, 1997 to January 8, 2004. He was the Mayor of San Francisco from January 8, 2004 to January 10, 2011. He was the Lt. Gov. from January 10, 2011 to January 7, 2019.

That’s 22 years he alone has had to commit to helping solve the homeless problem that exists in cities like San Francisco and L.A. Him trying to pin the homeless crisis there on Republicans and Trump is absurd, and just shows he’d rather conveniently pass the buck and play games on social media rather than take responsibility for his decades of leadership failures.
