Scandal broke after one video leaked of Gavin Newsom with a child.
He hoped this video would never see the light of day.
But now the public knows the truth and it could be all over for Gavin Newsom.
Gavin Newsom likes to pretend he could be the next President of the United States. He’s even considered challenging Joe Biden in the Democrat primary.
But one video could be the political faux pas that ruins his ambitions, just like the infamous Howard Dean scream in 2004 that ended his campaign.
Newsom was in China to meet with Xi Jinping – which is bad enough considering Xi is a ruthless dictator – and Newsom was essentially sucking up to him.
While in the communist country, Newsom met with a group of schoolchildren on a basketball court and wanted to show off (what he thought) were his sweet basketball skills.
But he ended up plowing over one of the children and almost significantly injuring them.
And the whole thing was captured on video.
According to Fox News, “California Gov. Gavin Newsom was caught on video running over a Chinese child while playing a pickup basketball game during his trip to the country.”
“The short clip, which was shared by RNC Research, an arm of the Republican National Committee, features the California governor showing off his ball handling skills before making a move toward the basket and running right through one of the children attempting to defend him.”
Any adult who has ever played sports with young children knows one simple rule: you take it easy on them.
If you’re playing catch with your 9-year-old son, you don’t throw a fastball going 85mph directly at his head.
But Newsom apparently never considered this.
“Newsom and the young boy can be seen tumbling to the ground, with the governor wrapping him in a bear hug and playfully patting his back as they get up,” the article continued.
“A spokesperson for Newsom’s office told Fox News Digital the incident happened while the governor was at Yuying School, a public school in Beijing, where he visited to ‘see farm-to-school and other agricultural science programs in China.’”
Newsom may have thought he made this better by patting the child on the back, but everyone watching cringed as the governor embarrassed himself.
Now people might be rethinking whether Newsom is someone they’d want representing the United States as President.
After all, the current President has already embarrassed America enough in his travels around the world.
