Gavin Newsom told a whopper about his deployment of the National Guard and instantly regretted it

It used to be easy for leftist politicians to make exaggerations or outright lies and get away with it.

But all that has changed in the digital age, specifically on platforms committed to free speech.

Now, Gavin Newsom told a whopper about his deployment of the National Guard and instantly regretted it.

California Governor Gavin Newsom has a complicated relationship with the truth.

He’s all in on slick marketing but the results of his promised reforms often leave much to be desired.

Last month, he declared in a press conference that his attempts to solve his state’s homeless crisis should be considered a “national model.”

He said, “If there’s any good news – and I’ll close on this officially – the state of California has seen a decline in veteran’s homelessness. We have a national model. What Proposition 1 did is it reinforced that model, provided more resources to advance that model, and we’re very excited to get those dollars to work.”

Unfortunately for Newsom and Californians, the numbers are in and the homeless population is up 6 % compared to last year.

In fact, fully one-third of the entire nation’s homeless population lives in California.

In a similar vein, Newsom is now making grandiose claims about his supposed success at getting the California National Guard to the San Ysidro Port of Entry.

Newsom: I’m working with the California National Guard to fix the fentanyl problem

In a self-serving video at the border, with Tijuana in the background, Newsom boasted that he and the California National Guard had been met with border patrol representatives to stop the fentanyl epidemic.

He then chastised House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) for “playing politics” and scolded that it was time for Johnson to “do the right thing” and allocate funding for this issue.  

Fox News’ Bill Melugin: Not so fast, Slick

But Newsom’s penchant for flapping his gums and doing little to solve any of the problems plaguing his state was just a little bit too much for someone who heard his comments and knew better.

Fox News’ Bill Melugin has traveled to the border on countless occasions and has covered every aspect of the disaster that has unfolded there since Joe Biden assumed the presidency.

Melugin was having none of Newsom’s nonsense.

He wrote on X, “Haven’t seen one – not a single one – of these CA National Guard soldiers in Jacumba where the mass illegal crossings of adult men from around the world are taking place. BP there so overwhelmed that the migrants wander aimlessly on highways and call Lyfts for themselves while waiting to be picked up, as San Diego sector now leads the nation in illegal crossings.”

He continued, “I sent Gov. Newsom’s below post to a BP agent in Jacumba, who responded by laughing & telling me CA ‘isn’t doing shit’ to help them with illegal crossings there, and any soldiers that they see there are National Guard from other states working w/ DHS under federal Title 10 orders. He said CA soldiers are helping with drug interdiction at ports of entry – not the mass crossing hot spots in Jacumba. If the Governor’s office has any images of CA National Guard helping Border Patrol in Jacumba, I’m happy to update.”

Game, set, match.

While rumors continue to circulate about what might happen if Biden continues to wander off in public appearances, Democrats would be well served to think twice before any possible attempt to swap him out for Newsom at the convention.

First and foremost, both are terrible on the border.

That Biden frequently makes claims his record can’t cash is well-known, but Newsom takes this practice to a whole new level.

And the internet never forgets.
