Gavin Newsom is the living embodiment of Patrick Bateman, a murderous sociopath depicted in the novel ‘American Psycho’ by Brett Easton Ellis and the blockbuster movie of the same name.
He’s suave, debonaire, smooth-talking, and even charming to some. But lying underneath is a noticeable hollowness; a brutal lack of sympathy that allows Newsom to break his own draconian policies while forcing them on the population with an iron fist.
Newsome has decided to take a vacation after dropping a now-viral campaign ad in Florida as he attempts to ramp up his national spotlight. His family is visiting Montana, a Republican-led state blacklisted by his travel ban.
The state of California has banned travel to several red states over their supposedly discriminatory laws against LGBT individuals. This was Newsom’s response to Republican Gov. Greg Gianforte after he announced that transgender women will no longer be allowed to compete in sports against biological females.
The California governor receives swift and immediate backlash for his red state hypocrisy, a feeling he’s become accustomed to given his numerous indirections.
Erin Mellon, a spokesperson for Newsom, defended the governor’s actions, saying, “The governor’s travel is not being paid for by the state. This is a personal trip to visit family who lives in Montana.”
So who’s paying for the governor’s security detail? Certainly Newsom would need security as he travels, but it’s highly unlikely that he ditched his taxpayer-funded bodyguards and hire a new team based in Montana all for one small trip.
Asked if the state is paying for his security, his spokesperson refused to comment.
“Asked if the state is paying for his security, York says the office doesn’t comment on security.”
So, yes then. https://t.co/FShLf7emgK

Newsom is no stranger to breaking his own rules and even faced a recall election based on his handling of California’s economy and his response to the China Virus pandemic.
The governor was seen at a maskless dinner party at a Michelin-rated Napa Valley restaurant during the height of COVID-19 restrictions in California while many of the rules were still in place.
Newsom also made waves when he was photographed around Thanksgiving staying at a $29,000-per-night villa owned by Russian oligarch Oleg Tinkov, who pleaded guilty a month earlier to evading taxes of $248 million.
Newsom’s stay came at a time when the public was urged to eat Thanksgiving dinners outside, wear masks, and avoid inviting large groups or relatives who weren’t fully vaccinated.
And in 2019, shortly after taking office, Newsom traveled to El Salvador to discuss the roots of migration to America, where California became the first sanctuary state for illegal immigration. He famously battled with the Trump administration as they attempted to secure the US-Mexico border and rid the country of illegal immigrants.
Leftist privilege prevails once again!
