Newsom teams up with CNN to intro ‘4th of July’ ad bashing DeSantis, call on Floridians to MOVE to CA

Just in time for Fourth of July festivities, liberal California Governor Gavin Newsom, with the help of CNN, has interjected himself into the middle of Floridians’ holiday with an ad that bashes their wildly popular governor and implores them to head west, because, he warned, “Freedom is under attack in your state.”

Acting as a dutiful press agent, CNN reported Sunday, “With $105,000 on Fox News, Newsom’s new ad, first provided to CNN and set to air on July 4, is a mashup of a classic campaign spot, business investment pitch and one of those California tourism commercials full of celebrities saying how much better it is there, wrapped in the existential terror that’s wracking progressives these days.”

The difference between Newsom and DeSantis, at least in CNN’s eyes, is indicative of “the separate realities blue and red Americans are living in.”

“In ever-blue California, Newsom, the son of a state appellate judge, has rebooted from his start as a flashy progressive hero around quieter legislative pushes,’ writes Edward-Isaac Dovere and Steve Contorno. “Meanwhile, in reddening Florida, there’s DeSantis, the son of a Nielsen box salesman, who in public cleaves less to his two Ivy League degrees than to the anti-elitist, reactionary politics that have consumed the GOP.”

According to the ever-so-humble Newsom, the two are “as different as daylight and darkness.”

He then, Dovere shared in a tweet, promptly resorted to name-calling, labeling DeSantis a “bully, a fraud, an authoritarian, a fake conservative, a betrayer of Ronald Regan’s legacy and, several times, ‘DeSantos.'”

And all of this was to serve as a teaser for Newsom’s appeal to Florida residents:

“It’s Independence Day,” Newsom begins. “So let’s talk about what’s going on in America.”

“Freedom,” he continues as earnestly as Gavin Newsom can, “it’s under attack in your state.”

“The Republican leaders, they’re banning books, making it harder to vote, restricting speech in classrooms, even criminalizing women and doctors,” he continued, apparently unaware of just how popular DeSantis’s policies are in his home state.

According to Race to the WH, as of July 2, DeSantis has a 78.1% chance of winning reelection against former Governor Charlie Crist.

“Florida has shifted about 4% towards the Republican party since 2018, so Democrats will have to navigate their way through more treacherous political terrain to secure victory,” the site predicts.

But, says Newsom, leaving Florida for a state that boasts an unprecedented homeless crisis and soft-on-crime city mayors, is better than what DeSantis is doing to their lives.

“I urge all of you living in Florida to join the fight or join us in California, where we still believe in freedom,” he stated, forgetting that — while California locked down businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to encourage its residents to mask up, even if its leaders don’t — Floridians were much more free of government overreach.

“Now Gavin is doing comedy,” tweeted one user in response to the ad.

DeSantis spokesperson Christina Pushaw, when asked to comment on the California Governor’s July 4th ad, stated, “Gavin Newsom might as well light a pile of cash on fire.”

“Pass the popcorn,” she continued, “for his desperate attempt to win back the California refugees who fled the hellhole he created in his state to come to Florida.”
