Following California’s recall election, Governor Gavin Newsom remains at his post and Larry Elder conceded the race. Over 5 million California voters, 63%, voted to not recall Newsom. But Elder is still recovering from all the names critics called him.

First, Erika Smith of the LA Times wrote “Larry Elder is the Black face of white supremacy.” Her article came out on August 20th. “You’ve been warned,” she wrote.

Next the President of the United States jumped on the trend. “The leading Republican running for governor (Larry Elder) is the closest thing to a Trump clone that I have ever seen,” President Biden said. Biden appeared at a Newsom Rally the day before the election.

Then on the day of the election, MSNBC Contributor Jason Johnson took it a step further on election day. He suggested that Elder wasn’t truly Black, but just in blackface.

“This race was right at the razor’s edge until about three weeks ago when it became less about a referendum on Gavin Newsom and more about a choice between Larry Elder, who’s basically Trumpism in blackface, versus Gavin Newsom who is at least a competent politician,” Johnson said Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Elder took the name-calling in stride. Instead, he seemed unbothered about his political future. “”We may have lost the battle, but we are going to win the war,” Elder said in his concession speech Tuesday. Later, on Wednesday, he tweeted “Only in America can a black person become President or a white supremacist.” However, he also included the foreboding hashtag: #WeveGotACountryToSave.

Elder also used the hashtag on Facebook. “Thank you for the love, California!” his post read. “#WeveGotAStateToSave #WeveGotACountryToSave.”

This was the sixth attempt to recall Newsom but only the first that came to an election. It cost California roughly $276 million to facilitate the recall election, according to state Assembly.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
