Gavin Newsom has some explaining to do.
California Governor Gavin Newsom on Sunday was spotted with Magic Johnson in a suite at the 49ers-Rams football game at SoFi stadium in Los Angeles without a mask on.
Earlier Monday morning, a reporter asked Newsom about the maskless photo and he nervously stumbled through a list of excuses.
“I was very judicious yesterday, uh, very judicious. And you’ll see the photo that I did take, um where Magic was kind enough, generous enough to ask me for a photograph,” Newsom said Monday morning.
A Fox 11 reporter pressed Newsom and asked him if he shouldn’t have taken a maskless photo given his history of getting caught violating Covid rules (French Laundry).
“I was trying to be gracious and took the mask off for a brief second,” Newsom said stopping just short of admitting he made a “mistake.”
Later Monday afternoon a video of Newsom surfaced contradicting his claim that he only removed his mask for a “brief second” to take a photo with Magic.
Cameras captured a maskless Newsom making his way over to Los Angeles Lakers superstar Magic Johnson, also maskless.
