California Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) went on CNN on Monday to talk about the indoor mask mandate in LA County,  requiring everyone, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask indoors.

CNN's Victor Blackwell asked Newsom whether that policy should be resurrected statewide.

Newsom responded by saying "we don't even have to have that debate if we can just get everyone vaccinated that's not vaccinated."

"It's like drunk drivers," he said. "You don't have the right to go out and drink and drive and put everybody else at risk including your own life at risk."

Newsom has blamed the 25 percent of residents who remain unvaccinated in California as the fault of right-wing misinformation and pundits, naming Tucker Carlson and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Shortly following that accusation, Rep Greene and Newsom got into a back-and-forth on Twitter about everything Covid related.
