Newsom says he will ‘go to the ends of the earth’ for Biden

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) said he would go “to the ends of the earth” for President Biden in a recent MSNBC interview.

When host Alex Wagner noted Newsom was not running for president despite recent moves elevating his national profile, Newsom said there is “[n]o chance” of that happening. He then questioned why someone would want to run at the same time as Biden, who he said has “a record of accomplishments” and is “man of character, a man of decency.”

“I’m old school,” Newsom said. “Talk about loyalty, I’ll go to the ends of the earth for this guy, I really would. I’m not making that up.”

The comment comes a week after the California governor announced he was set to stump for the Biden reelection campaign in Nevada and South Carolina.

In the same interview, Newsom took a swing at former President Trump, saying that he is “damaged goods” and “more unhinged than ever.”

“He can’t be beaten in a primary, but in a general election a general election, I think he’s the most flawed candidate in my lifetime,” Newsom said. “He is damaged goods.”

“He is not as entertaining as he once was. He’s more unhinged than he ever was, more extreme, obviously more dangerous across the spectrum of issues,” he added.

The Golden State governor also went after congressional Republicans earlier this week over the issue of border security, including House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.).

“Don’t even get me started with the weakness of the current Speaker of the House,” Newsom said. “I mean, they don’t want a deal, period. Full stop,” he said, referring to GOP lawmakers in Congress.
