This is what Democrat privilege looks like.
California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) on Monday defended himself for breaking Covid masking rules… AGAIN.
Newsom on Sunday was spotted with Magic Johnson in a suite at the 49ers-Rams football game at SoFi stadium in Los Angeles without a mask on.
Former Los Angeles Lakers superstar Magic Johnson, posted the maskless photos to his social media page on Sunday.

A reporter asked Newsom about the maskless photo and he nervously stumbled through a list of excuses.
“I was very judicious yesterday, uh, very judicious. And you’ll see the photo that I did take, um where Magic was kind enough, generous enough to ask me for a photograph,” Newsom said sounding like a stars truck teen. “In my left hand is the mask, and I took a photo. The rest of the time I wore it, as we all should. Not when I had a glass of water, or anything … and that’s it,” Newsom said.
A Fox 11 reporter pressed Newsom and asked him if he shouldn’t have taken a maskless photo given his history of getting caught violating Covid rules (French Laundry).
“I was trying to be gracious and took the mask off for a brief second,” Newsom said stopping just short of admitting he made a “mistake.”
So Covid stops spreading when a celebrity basketballer and a Democrat politician pose for a photograph?
This isn’t the first time Newsom has been caught maskless in defiance of strict mandates.
Newsom was spotted at the French Laundry in Napa Valley in November 2020 after he told the peasants in California they cannot gather for Thanksgiving.
