Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nytimes.com: “Gavin Newsom Pokes the G.O.P. Bear”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The California governor is up to something as he bashes Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis and even his fellow Democrats. Just what, exactly, is a hot topic of discussion on the left.

On Thursday, he joined Donald Trump’s social media network — to rebut “Republican lies,” he said. He posted another “truth” on the former president’s site on Monday, using the platform to promote what he cast as the superior economic performance of blue states.

For months, Newsom, the 54-year-old governor of California, has been taking swipes at red-state governors known to have presidential ambitions.

He has ripped unnamed fellow Democrats, too: In May, after Politico published a draft Supreme Court decision that would strike down Roe v. Wade, Newsom groused that Republican cultural warriors were winning on issues like abortion and L.G.B.T.Q. rights with no vigorous response from the left.

He is always careful to explain that he means no disrespect to the gerontocratic official leaders of the Democratic Party: President Biden (who is 79), Speaker Nancy Pelosi (82) and Senator Chuck Schumer (71), the majority leader.
