Wait, he’s white and as a governor he is supreme, so what does that make him?
I thought that San Diego got rid of its communist leaders such as Comrade Red Diaper Baby Filner. This new mayor sounds like Mrs. Mao. Wonder if Red China financed any of her campaign.
Heck they didn’t call it treason? They’re slipping.
Governor’s Aide: Governor, the Peasants are revolting.
Governor Newsome: They certainly are.
So he’s basically cooked
