Fellow Governor Contends ‘No One Cares For’ Gavin Newsom

2 mins read

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu blasted Gavin Newsom and Andrew Cuomo as America’s most hated governors.

On Thursday, Sununu was asked at the Reagan Institute Summit who the governors “no one really cared for” were, and the Republican lawmaker didn’t hold back.

“I’ve got to be honest, no one cares for Gavin [Newsom],” Sununu remarked. “Gavin’s just a prick — excuse me — he just is.”

“He just is. It’s really disappointing,” Sununu added. “All of us got along for a while, but even the Democrats — they won’t tell you out loud — but behind closed doors they’re like ‘oh God, look who’s coming.’”

Sununu also noted his disdain for disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who slunk off into obscurity in 2021, after being accused of sexual harassment by a cadre female employees.

“Yeah, Andrew Cuomo — complete jacka– — no one likes him,” Sununu bluntly stated.

While Newsom’s camp has yet to respond, Cuomo spokesperson Rich Azzopardi said that, “it’s nice to see they both feel the same way about each other.”

Meanwhile, Newsom blasted Red states after nineteen Republican attorneys general petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday to dismiss lawsuits from California and four other states that aim to make major oil companies accountable for climate change damages.

“These Republican-led states are acting as wholly-owned subsidiaries of Big Oil, filing directly in the Supreme Court to do the industry’s bidding of pursuing more profits and pollution,” Newsom told POLITICO.

“California will continue fighting for everybody who’s been hurt and ripped off by Big Oil.”

California Attorney General Rob Bonta filed a lawsuit against Chevron and four other oil companies in September, which claimed that they had been spreading disinformation about the role fossil fuels play in climate change.

The Thursday Supreme Court filing claims California, New Jersey, Minnesota, Connecticut, and Rhode Island are attempting to make the oil companies liable for emissions that go beyond state lines.

“These states are welcome to enforce their preferred policies within their jurisdiction, but they do not have authority to dictate our national energy policy,” Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall, who spearheaded the suit commented in a statement.

“If the Supreme Court lets them continue, California and its allies will imperil access to affordable energy for every American.”

The Supreme Court has rejected similar filings, allowing them to go forward in state courts, rather than at the federal level.

Newsom was apparently busy on Thursday, because in addition to criticizing Republicans, he signed a new law that would allow Arizona abortion providers to temporarily offer their services to patients from Arizona who flee to the Golden State.

The bill, S.B. 233, allows Arizona abortion providers to be rapidly approved to become California service provieders. Newsom introduced in response to the Arizona Supreme Court’s near-total abortion ban, which was repealed last month. The bill passed in California’s state Senate on Tuesday with a 30-8 vote.

“Arizona Republicans tried to turn back the clock to 1864 to impose a near-total abortion ban across their state. We refuse to stand by and acquiesce to their oppressive and dangerous attacks on women,” Newsom said on Thursday. “California stands ready to protect reproductive freedom.”
