Democrat California Governor Gavin Newsom shared exactly what he thinks about Fox News recently in an interview hosted by the Texas Tribune. He called the network’s hosts “ruthless,” and said they are dominating politics and crushing Democrats.
“These guys are ruthless on the other side. Ruthless on the other side,” Newsom said.
“That prime-time lineup by Fox, they’re ruthless,” he added. “They dominate the most important thing in American politics today, and that’s the narrative. Facts become secondary to narrative. They dominate with illusion and we are getting crushed. We are on the defense over and over again.”
Newsom, who also maintained that he was not running for president in 2024, called on his fellow Democrats to go on the offensive instead of just responding to their political challengers.
“Where are we? Where are we organizing, bottom up, a compelling alternative narrative? Where are we going on the offense every single day? They’re winning right now,” he added.
“They want to bring us back to the pre-1960s,” Newsom continued. “We have to meet this moment head on, and damn it, the Democratic Party has to assert itself much more aggressively than we have.”
Newsom not only denied that he will run in 2024 for the presidency but in 2028 as well. This is even though he is spreading his political influence beyond California.
“No, not happening,” he said. “I cannot say it enough. I never trust politicians, so I get why you keep asking.”
Newsom continues to lash out at Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and his conservative policies. This feud continues to get national recognition for both governors. In the latest back and forth Newsom criticized DeSantis as a “disgrace” because of his plan to relocate migrants to the island of Martha’s Vineyard.
DeSantis responded by firing back his own insult.
“All I can say is I think his hair gel is interfering with his brain function,” DeSantis joked to reporters.
