The Democratic governor of California, Gavin Newsom, has faced during his first term of office the pandemic of the covid-19, which has claimed the lives of more than 65,400 Californians.
His mandate has been defined by his response to the serious event, full of contradictions. Newsom issued the first state order urging residents to stay home, thus preventing most public school students from attending classes.
This happened while his children could attend face-to-face classes in private schools, which alerted many people from the beginning.

In California, citizens express their annoyance because their children have lost more than a year of studies, only receiving distance classes, while the reality of the governor’s children was different.
Voters have described Newsom as an elitist president who focuses his pandemic measures only on the masses, while he practices the opposite
