Newsom Admits Flouting Calif. Travel Ban, Claims Special Exemption

'His kids are visiting their grandparents for his daughter’s birthday, as they do every year... '

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) California Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom explained away his lawbreaking, all-expenses-paid family vacation to Montana with his security squad by claiming special exemption, Red State reported.

According to California’s AB-1887 law, signed by former Gov. Jerry Brown in 2016, no state official from any department or agency is permitted to travel to any state that has recently enacted a law considered to be in opposition to so-called LGBTQ rights.

But Newsom decided to take his family on a summer road trip, heading to Montana for a family get-together, paying his security team on the state’s dime. Even Anthony York, a spokesman for Newsom, admitted that the trip was entirely personal.

“His kids are visiting their grandparents for his daughter’s birthday, as they do every year,” he said.

When pressed on the matter, York claimed that the California law has an exemption for public safety, citing Newsom’s need to travel with security.

“On the security side, the law explicitly states there is an exemption for public safety, and the governor has to travel with security,” he said.

But unfortunately for Newsom, the law has no such exemption.

Not that likely mattered to Newsom, who has a long history of claiming special exemptions to his own state’s laws.

During the Coronavirus lockdowns, he decided to eat out maskless with other California elites despite forcing tens of millions of Californians to stay in their homes, masked.

“We’re all human. We all fall short sometimes,” he said at the time.

The embattled Governor also ignored his own jab mandates, deciding not to vaccinate his own 12-year-old daughter for months after the mandate went into place.

But as usual, Newsom explained it away and offered a weak apology.

“The spirit of what I’m preaching all the time was contradictory, and I’ve got to own that. So, I’m going to apologize to you,” he said afterwards.
