Comedian Adam Carolla of The Daily Wire's "Truth Yeller"
called out California Governor Gavin Newsom's (D) recent hypocritical actions on Wednesday.
Appearing on Fox News' "Hannity," Carolla said he lives "under Gavin Newsom's thumb."
Referencing Newsom's recent trip to Montana - a state that is under a travel ban for state travel in California, Carolla said, "...let's just really distill this down. Alright. There's a travel ban against Montana because Montana's evil because of their stances on LGBT, whatever."
"They're probably not handing out free sexual assignment reassignment surgery to all inmates or something insane,"
he said. "But either way, let's just break it down. Montana is an evil place because of the way they treat the gay and lesbian community. Fine. Then who cares who's paying for your travel, Gavin?"
"Why would you go to an evil place? Why are you trying to be evil on a technicality? You're the one who said ... this is a bad place, this is bad policy, so don't go fly-fishing then. Don't go there,"
"I mean, it's the same with the French Laundry, it was the same with the SoFi stadium where he's taking pictures with Magic Johnson with his mask in his hand. He doesn't believe it, he's a carpetbagger, he's full of crap. He doesn't believe anything he's saying,"
"He doesn't believe COVID's dangerous, or he wouldn't be out with 31 of his closest friends drinking 40 grand worth of wine, and he wouldn't be standing around SoFi stadium with no mask on if he believed it. He doesn't believe it, he doesn't believe Montana, he doesn't believe anything he says, and I don't believe anything he says, either,"
After discussing Newsom's recent ad purchase in Florida, Carolla said, "no one is leaving Florida and going to California. ... people are voting with their feet."
As The Daily Wire previously reported, Newsom was visiting family in Montana, according to Cal Matters. Montana is one of at least 20 states prohibited from travel funded and sponsored by the state, per California Assembly Bill 1887.
Anthony York, Newsom's senior advisor for communications, told Cal Matters, "We don't comment or provide details on the governor's security."
"We don't legislate where people vacation,"
York added. "Never have. The travel ban applies to expending state funds. The Governor's travel is not being paid for by the state."
Erin Mellon, communications director for Newsom, told KCRA, "It's a personal trip,"
adding, "The ban is on state-funded travel which this is not."
She said California's ban on travel is applicable to "expending state funds."
