CA Gov Newsom Calls Himself ‘Zoom Parent’ Despite 4 Children in Private School Since November

If Gov. Newsom hasn’t lost all credibility, this should push him over the edge.

California Governor Gavin Newsom

If California Governor Gavin Newsom hasn’t lost all credibility, this should push him over the edge. While parents and children struggle with devastating consequences from being forced to do at homeschooling, Governor Newsom actually had the audacity to try to relate.

During a CNN interview on March 16, Newsom attempted a go at relatability points stating, “I’ve been a strong advocate for safely getting our kids back in person for instruction. I have four young kids myself; I’ve been living through Zoom school and all the challenges related to it. We put out a detailed proposal to our legislature…it’s brutal.”

Not exactly sure what has been so “brutal” for the Governor. It’s not the inability to dine in restaurants or attend group gatherings that his leadership has mandated, as he has done both of those. Oh, and it’s not “living through Zoom school” because “his children returned to in-person classes in November at the elite Sacramento private school they attend” reports The Independent.

Perhaps it is being forced to lean on his acting abilities that is, in fact, “brutal.” Marcelino Valdez, a parent and founder of an organization to get schools reopened in Fresno, California, told The Washington Free Beacon, “it’s hard for him to relate to parents like myself and the 500-plus members of our group who have kids in public school.”

“He’s had his kids in private school. It’s a real lack of understanding and a lack of leadership on his part” added Valdez. Newsom’s attempted validation for setting back parents and students for over a full year was that “we prioritized our teachers in terms of vaccines, one of the first states to do that” Newsom told CNN. Ten percent of all our first doses going to our educators, over 400,000 now have gotten at least one shot.”

    Just wondering who the next governor will be. Will it be a conservative or will the people of California vote in another left wing maniac.

    Well said, William!! I don’t know how these liars sleep at night let alone look at themselves in the mirror. They’re on the gravy train and can’t get off to save face. When someone acts and says they’re always the victim, it’s a sign of mental instability. It must refer to the entire Left! They wouldn’t know reality if it hit them in the face.

    Please, he’s a democrat in a terribly run democratic state (Polisi lives in Calif. as well) its just media chatter. Remember bad press is better than no press. Keeps his name front and center. if he runs again, he’ll win.

    This guy has a staff that I am sure takes care of his kids. I bet he has never been on a school zoom class with his kids ever. He is blaming his recall on everyone but himself and his bad policies that have plagued Calif. before the pandemic hit. The signatures on his recall are NOT ALL REPUBLICANS. There are plenty of dems, independants, etc. Its just a general dislike of him, its not a party thing.

Biden Admin Announces First COVID Shots For Kids Under 5 Likely By June 21

On Thursday, the Biden administration announced that children under 5 will be able to get their first COVID-19 vaccination doses as soon as June 21, if regulators authorize the shots for this age group as expected.

According to the Associated Press, White House COVID-19 coordinator Ashish Jha “said the Food and Drug Administration’s outside panel of advisers will meet on June 14-15 to evaluate the Pfizer and Moderna shots for younger kids. Shipments to doctors’ offices and pediatric care facilities would begin soon after FDA authorization, with the first shots possible the following week.”

Jha added that states can begin placing orders for the pediatric vaccines on Friday and the administration will initially have 10 million doses available.

“Our expectation is that within weeks every parent who wants their child to get vaccinated will be able to get an appointment,” Jha said. “At the end of the day we all want to move fast, but we’ve got to get it right.”

The news comes the week after Pfizer announced that three doses of their vaccine offers strong protection against COVID-19 in children under 5.  However, according to former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a third dose is unnecessary because the vaccines do not prevent infection.

“I think the decision matrix has changed around the vaccine for [ages] 6 months to 4 years old and so far as we know that the vaccine isn’t as protective at preventing infection,” Gottlieb said. “Previously, we had data showing that the childhood vaccine for 6 months to 4 years wasn’t as protective against infection as the adult vaccine.”

“That’s the reason why they pushed it out and asked for that third dose. But now, if the goal of the vaccine is to get baseline immunity in the kids to prevent really bad outcomes, and you’re really not using the vaccine as a tool to prevent infection in the first place, two doses could do that,” he added.

Kamala Harris

On Tuesday, the White House announced that Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not currently showing symptoms.

“Today, Vice President Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on rapid and PCR tests,” said Kirsten Allen, press secretary to the vice president. “She has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate and continue to work from the Vice President’s residence. She has not been a close contact to the President or First Lady due to their respective recent travel schedules. She will follow CDC guidelines and the advice of her physicians. The Vice President will return to the White House when she tests negative.”

Harris wrote on Twitter that she was going to continue to isolate and is showing no symptoms.

“Today I tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms, and I will continue to isolate and follow CDC guidelines. I’m grateful to be both vaccinated and boosted,” Harris tweeted.

Harris last reportedly saw President Biden at the Easter Egg Roll on April 18 before leaving for California, which she returned from on April 25.

The vice president has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and has received two booster shots, receiving the second booster on April 1.

“Yesterday I received my second COVID-19 booster shot,” Harris tweeted on April 2. “We know that getting vaccinated is the best form of protection from this virus and boosters are critical in providing an additional level of protection. If you haven’t received your first booster—do it today.”
