Just when we thought politicians in California couldn't get any more horrible, Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom proved us wrong. Apparently, the reason he was absent from Cpl. Singh's funeral yesterday was because he was too busy watching the Sacramento Kings play basketball.
So fun to join the @warriors and @SacramentoKings last night with the family -- what a game!! pic.twitter.com/zmwaVKcT19— Gavin Newsom (@GavinNewsom) January 6, 2019
If this doesn't tell you where his priorities lay, nothing will.
Cpl. Ronil Singh, the officer who was killed in the line of duty by an illegal alien last week, was laid to rest on Saturday.
Here's a look at the funeral:

Attorney General Xavier Becerra was rumored to make an appearance but that has not been confirmed.
But where was Gov. Jerry Brown or Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom? What about Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris?
You're telling me that not one of those four found Cpl. Singh's sacrifice worthy of being in attendance?
