Newsom posts TikTok inside restaurant with movie star in county the place indoor eating is banned
California Governor Gavin Newsom appeared inside a restaurant in a county that bans indoor dining in the second recorded incident in a matter of months.
This time, Newsom posted a video on his TikTok account in which the famous George Lopez talked about where to look for coronavirus vaccine suitability. Newsom and Lopez were in Fresno, California and appear to be at Los Amigos Restaurant.
A separate video by Lopez was posted on the Los Amigos restaurant’s Facebook page. Lopez supported the restaurant’s food.
CALIF. GOV CANDIDATE Accuses NEWS OF “EDUCATIONAL EQUALITY GAP”
Fresno is on the most restrictive purple row that doesn’t allow indoor dining.
The Newsom office could not be immediately reached for comment. It is not clear whether the governor ate in the restaurant.
In early November, Newsom was spotted eating at the posh French laundry in Napa on the birthday of a longtime consultant. Indoor dining was not open to the public in Napa. Newsom earned bitter backlash for the outing he later called “a mistake”.
“I should have got up and … driven back to my house … The spirit of what I preach all along has been contradicted,” he said. “I have to preach and practice, not just preach.”
Newsom said in his apology that he wanted to “own” his mistake because he feared it would undermine the message of safety he wanted to send to residents.
“I do my best every day to model better behavior,” he said.

The French laundry trip helped kickstart a recall that is gaining traction in California. The organizers of the Newsom recall claim to have collected 1.825 million signatures. You need 1.5 million signatures by March 17th, but make up a fraction of the signatures to be rejected.
Newsom’s competitor Kevin Faulconer, who has announced a run for the governor if the recall is successful, met the governor for the move. “Gavin Newsom continues to show that he is nothing more than an incompetent elitist who may be less interested in California families,” said John Burke, Kevin Faulconer’s communications director for governor, in a statement to Fox News. “His failures crippled our state’s economy and changed the lives of millions of families. We’ll remember him and make a comeback in California to get our state back on track.”
