California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) on Monday compared law-abiding, unvaccinated Americans to dangerous, murderous drunk drivers.
CNN on Monday asked Newsom if it’s time to bring back the universal mask mandate regardless of vaccination status because of rising Covid cases.
Newsom immediately blamed unvaccinated people for the rise in Covid cases
“We don’t even have to have that debate if we could just get everybody vaccinated…living vaccine free is impacting the rest of us like drunk drivers,” Newsom said. “You don’t have the right to go out and drink and drive and put everybody else at risk including your own life at risk.”
Newsom added, “California is one of the highest vaccination rates in America but yet we’re still seeing an increase because so many people – 25% in California are refusing to get vaccinated.”
