During a segment on "Jesse Watters Primetime," host Jesse Watters engaged in a discussion with Democratic strategist Nomiki Konst about the recent debate between California Gov. Gavin Newsom and Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Watters challenged Konst's perspective on Newsom's debate performance, suggesting that Newsom may not have fared as well as she believed.
Konst opined that Newsom not only exhibited a "presidential" demeanor, emphasizing his intellectual sharpness, but also excelled in the debate against a highly educated political opponent.
“I mean listen, he didn’t just come looking presidential. Okay, that’s all been said — he looks presidential. It looks like, you know, he’s out of central casting. His family’s beautiful. He was sharp,” Konst stated. “I mean, he was up on stage with not just a former congressman, a current governor — a lawyer — and he was out debating him.”
“Why do you say he was out debating?” Watters questioned.
“I mean he was just so quick. He was pulling numbers left and right,” Konst fired back.
Watters interjected, arguing that the statistics Newsom referenced were incorrect, while Konst countered by asserting that PolitiFact had verified them.
“PolitiFact, stop it with PolitiFact. They still say the laptop’s fake — get outta here. But you really do realize he got crushed on substance?” Watters questioned. “I mean you have all the statistics up there. The border, the taxes, the crime, the poop map! Was the poop map fake news?”
Konst stated that the “poop map” was “fake news” due to the fact that Newsom was not mayor at the time, noting that it was also just a “gimmick” and not “real data.”
“No he’s just the governor now,” Watters quipped. “Yeah, no, we know the Democrats don’t like gimmicks at all.”
Thursday night on Fox News' "Hannity," California Gov. Gavin Newsom and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis engaged in a debate focusing on the differences between red and blue state policies. Throughout the debate, Newsom avoided addressing questions about California's high crime rates and the significant migration of residents to red states like Florida, attributed to California's policies.
During the discussion, Gov. DeSantis presented a data map showing the accumulation of human feces in San Francisco, using it to argue that the city's condition has deteriorated under Newsom's governance. Recently released data has shown an increase in such incidents in San Francisco in 2022, with reports indicating over 34,000 occurrences.
