California Governor Gavin Newsom has been eyeing the White House as Biden continues to decline. But one Republican threw a major wrench in his plans.
And Gavin Newsom just got hit with the biggest shock of his life from this Republican.
No one can doubt that Joe Biden is barely able to function as a person let alone the president.
Just take a look at him tripping on a flat surface and needing three people to help him up.

That’s why Democrats like Gavin Newsom have been circling like vultures to see if this could be their shot.
But Newsom needs to get his own house in order after Ron DeSantis handed him a major loss.
On Monday, another plane carrying migrants arrived in Sacramento, and California officials suspect they originated from Florida.
The plane carrying roughly 20 migrants arrived in Sacramento on Monday, following the arrival of more than a dozen South American migrants aboard a charter flight from New Mexico over the weekend.
“Documents carried by the migrants appear to show that the weekend flight was arranged through the Florida Division of Emergency Management and that it was part of the state’s program to relocate migrants, mostly from Texas, to other states, California Atty. Gen. Rob Bonta said,” reported the Los Angeles Times.
“The contractor for the program is Vertol Systems Co., which coordinated similar flights that took dozens of Venezuelan asylum seekers from San Antonio to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts last year,” it added.
According to Bonta’s office, agents from the California Department of Justice made contact with the migrants, who had documentation from the state of Florida.
The governor’s office has not commented on the incident, and it is unknown whether they were flown to California on his orders. Regardless, Bonta ultimately placed the problem on the Republican governor.
“This is Gov. DeSantis, this is his baby, this is his project, his fingerprints are all over it,” Bonta said. “The governor signed it, the Legislature approved to fund it in the budget, and they hired Vertol Systems Co., a vendor, to carry out the work.”
“It’s DeSantis being exactly who he is and advertising to the world that he is petty, little … and full of political stunts that hurt, harm and abuse and exploit people to try and get cheap political points. It’s wrong,” he added.
Bonta’s office confirmed that they would be investigating kidnapping charges and “evaluating potential criminal or civil action against those who transported or arranged for the transport of these vulnerable immigrants.” According to Bonta, the migrants were promised jobs and that California would assist them in finding work.
“They never intended to help them find a job but told them that they would do that so they could get on the plane and sign their documents and be transported to Sacramento,” Bonta said.
“They completely exploited, abused and manipulated these folks who were vulnerable and were hoping and dreaming of a job and told they would be helped finding that job only to be abandoned.”
But what happened to California being a sanctuary state?
Weren’t they all for accepting every illegal immigrant into the country? Why shouldn’t they share the load?
Oh, that’s right, they only want them in Republican states, not their own. It really makes you wonder.
