President Biden visited California Monday to rally support for California Governor Gavin Newsom, who is facing a recall election. Should Californians vote to recall him, the result will be Republican candidate Larry Elder in the governor’s seat. Biden and his Vice President Harris appeared at Newsom’s rally to speak to Californians.
“Well, this year, this year, the leading Republican running for governor is the closest thing to a Trump clone that I have ever seen in your state,” Biden told the crowd. “No, I really mean it. And he’s leading the other team. He’s a clone of Donald Trump.”
Therefore, Biden went on, Californians should not put in him charge. “Can you imagine him being governor of this state? You can’t let that happen. There is too much at stake,” Biden said. “And here’s why it’s so important for you all to vote no on the recall. First, voting no will be protecting California from Trump Republicans trying to block us from beating this pandemic. COVID-19, Gavin Newsom has had the courage to lead, stand up for science, for the very thing he’s been one of the leading governors in the nation, protecting people and vaccinating people in his state. Meanwhile, meanwhile, we see something else in parts of America.”
However, Biden seemed to also have ulterior motives. He told the California crowd the recall election results are “going to reverberate around the nation.” Lately, Biden has polled poorly nationwide, leaving the door open for a Republican to take his spot. Even when he arrived in California, many booed him. College stadiums around the nation have begun chanting “f*** Joe Biden.” So Biden likely meant that one Democrat losing could lead to more in the future.

Meta to reinstate Trump’s Facebook, Instagram ‘in coming weeks’
Meta’s president of Global Affairs Nick Clegg announced former President Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts will be reinstated “in coming weeks” after a more than two-year suspension.
“Our determination is that the risk [to public safety] has sufficiently receded,” Meta Clegg said in a blog post. “As such, we will be reinstating Mr. Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts in the coming weeks. However, we are doing so with new guardrails in place to deter repeat offenses.”
Twitter restored Trump’s account in November following its takeover by billionaire Elon Musk, but the former president has not yet resumed tweeting. Therefore it is unclear if he will use any of his former social media platforms, or instead remain on his own social media platform, Truth Social.
Clegg said “We just do not want — if he is to return to our services — for him to do what he did on January 6, which is to use our services to delegitimize the 2024 election, much as he sought to discredit the 2020 election.”
New “guardrails” include new policies around restricting accounts by public figures during civil unrest. Under those policies, Meta can decide to restrict the account of a public figure that violates its community standards for a time ranging from one month to two years.
“If he now posts further violating content, that content will be removed, of course, and he could be suspended for between one month and two years, depending on the severity of the violation,” Clegg said.
Posts will also be able to be limited on distribution without removing them or temporarily restricting access to its advertising tools. “Oblique references to QAnon content, for instance … is the kind of material that — even if it’s done obliquely, and doesn’t violate our community standards — we would seek to restrict the distribution of the content and/or restrict his ability to advertise,” added Clegg.
