Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom blasted efforts to strip voters of the option to choose the former president, calling moves to do so a 'political distraction' even though he says Trump allegedly poses a 'threat to our liberties and even to our democracy.'
'Although the governor and his wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, have made teen mental health a top public concern, neither spoke out against either series,' watchdog Adam Andrzejewski says of California's support for '13 Reasons Why' and 'Euphoria.'
One reason why Newsom has long embraced 'LGBTQ+' as his signature political cause is his deep ties to the family of the late American oil billionaire, J. Paul Getty. The Gettys have bankrolled Newsom’s business ventures as well as his rapid rise in public office that has brought him to the cusp of a U.S. presidential run.
Though Gavin Newsom has repeatedly waved away rumors that he’s vying for the White House anytime soon, the 56-year-old California executive has taken virtually every opportunity to inject himself into national politics.
