TOTAL RECALL: Schwarzenegger Says Effort to Oust Newsom Coming from ‘Ordinary People’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.01.21

Former Republican Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger weighed-in on the latest effort to oust Gavin Newsom this week; rejecting allegations the movement is backed by far-right extremists while suggesting it comes from “ordinary people.”

“This is the crazy thing here, when they say it’s a ‘power grab’ of the Republicans. Let me tell you, the [California] Republicans couldn’t even get anyone elected. It’s ludicrous – the Republican Party doesn’t exist. These are the signatures of the ordinary folks that have signed on,” Schwarzenegger told Politico.

“People are dissatisfied. [The recall is] the people’s way of kind of letting off some steam, and then they decide: Do we want to follow through, or not follow through?” he continued.

“It’s pretty much the same atmosphere today as it was then. There was dissatisfaction, to the highest level,” Schwarzenegger said. “And it’s the same with the momentum. Something that sets it off to a higher level, kind of the straw that breaks the camel’s back … like an explosion. In Newsom’s case, it was the French Laundry thing. With us, it was the power outages in 2003.”

“Newsom is doing something very smart, and that is that he is engaged now,” he said. “The people have already succeeded with that, even if there’s no recall, because he now has gotten out of Sacramento. He is traveling around the state, is being seen everywhere, is involved and engaged with the vaccine, is involved with education. I see him on the news all the time now.”

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.15.21

The White House fiercely defended California Governor Gavin Newsom Wednesday as the recall movement against the leading Democrat grows over his handling of homelessness, crime, drug abuse, and the CoVID pandemic.

“In addition to sharing a commitment to a range of issues with @GavinNewsom from addressing the climate crisis to getting the pandemic under control, @POTUS clearly opposes any effort to recall @GavinNewsom,” posted White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

“When they have to call out the big guns like that it means they know they’re in trouble,” said the finance director behind the recall movement. “That he had to get them to come out in a White House tweet to say that they don’t support the recall, is more evidence that they’re in trouble.”
