Nice TRY! Gavin Newsom tweets crybaby thread about Trump and the NRA, trips SPECTACULARLY over his own state

Maybe Gov. Gavin Newsom missed it, but he has plenty of issues in his own state of California to worry about without complaining and whining about Trump’s speech at the NRA Leadership Forum today. Gavin was so fussy in fact he wrote an entire thread on it …
Trump is choosing to spend his time pandering to the @NRA while lives are being lost every day to senseless gun violence. Let’s spend our time talking about the facts on gun violence in America:

Psst. Gavin, look in your own backyard.
Gun violence kills nearly 100 Americans every day. Nearly 40,000 Americans were killed by gun violence in 2017.

Notice Gavin doesn’t have the decency to remove suicide from his stats because you know, all that matters blaming guns.
Three of the deadliest mass shootings in modern American history have occurred within just the past two years. Two. Years.

Firearms are the second leading cause of death for American children and teens — and the first leading cause of death for Black children and teens. If we cannot protect our children, we've failed.

He says nothing about gang violence here either.
An American woman is fatally shot by her partner every 16 hours.

Since 2010, gun-related murders of intimate partners have increased by 26%.

Gavin conveniently leaves out how a firearm is the greatest equalizer for any woman.
This is a crisis. And rather than attempting to solve the issue, our leaders are off raising money for those who block commonsense gun legislation. It's immoral. It’s disgraceful. It’s pathetic. And it’s weak.

Gavin’s hair is the real crisis.
As long as we have an administration that panders to the gun lobby, we will literally never have a chance to move forward and save lives. We cannot elect more politicians bought-and-paid-for by the @NRA.

Wow.
Here's a thought. How about focusing on the problems in California instead of this or your ridiculous trip to El Salvador. You know the state you run that has some of the highest gas taxes in the US and you wonder why gas prices are so high?

Oops.
Oops some more.
Whoda thunk?
No different than you choosing to spend time pandering to fringe rights groups rather than focusing on real issues facing California. I’ve already given you a list of suggestions. So far, I’ve seen no action. Just daily histrionics about yet another imaginary “crisis”. Stop, dude

Hold on a minute there Gov. you talk about @realDonaldTrump pandering to special interest groups but that is exactly what you do on a regular basis. Doubling Down on the the Double Standard.

And you spend your time every day obsessing over Trump versus working on the issues you were elected to resolve. It would be nice if you represented all Californians versus Tom Steyer and the SEIU. @blackhawkrwf

Way to totally faceplant over your own dumpster-fire of a state, Gavin.
