CA GOV BIG PICTURE: One of the top Democrats in the country got caught living like an elite while everyone else suffered. Elites vs. the rest is the driving force in our politics right now and Democrats have a tough needle to thread both in California & nationwide … (1/)

Democrats need to prove they can govern for EVERYBODY, and if you look at California — it’s not necessarily the best test case for national Democrats (see: concern about homelessness, crime, etc) (2/)

Obviously California is a Special Place — but the fact that a Democratic national star in waiting *faced* a recall and then had to fight hard for it midway through the campaign does say a lot about the potential challenges Democrats face across the map (4/)

All that’s missing is an all-caps “DEMOCRATS IN DISARRAY”.

Some of the responses:

The person copying and pasting Republican Party press releases into tweets here is literally @CNN’s “Chief National Affairs Analyst.”

Ah yes, because when Republicans win, Democrats lose, and when Democrats win, Democrats still lose.

Shorter version of this thread: I left MSNBC because CNN is the transition road to fox.

“Faux News channel, fascist groupies” – protest sign, circa 2003- 2004.


Gov Newsom is “living like an elite” because he went to the French Laundry for dinner?

He is Gov of the largest state in the country and will be earning $218,000 come December

You reportedly earn between $1 million and $1.5 million.

Who’s the “elite”?

Democrats are literally the ONLY ones governing; Republicans stopped governing years ago, and that fact has just been accepted as OK by the beltway media for some strange reason.

And Republicans prove they can govern for EVERYBODY? Please describe how they are doing this today?

Such a national media take.

Dems must govern for everybody.

GOP can govern for its base

You sound like NYT Pitchbot, but you mean it

Meta! Well played, well played.

It was a landslide victory Kasie.

Did you hit your head or something?

Ummm…OC even said “no” to the recall…ORANGE COUNTY. Lady, this diatribe is just outlandishly wrong.

This. Is. Absurd.

Is EVERYBODY only the Republicans and Trump?

Now do Florida and Texas.

We see what you did there.


So I guess the problem is that Newsome didn’t get 100%, yes?


The ratio, it BURNS!

And on and on…
