Give respect where respect is due. And right now, that's to the Governor of California.
170 of the ventilators that were sent to California from the federal government needed repairs to be fully functional. And in a surprising move, Governor Newsom chose to take the high road. Instead of blaming President Trump for the broken ventilators, he simply sent them in for repair.
The rest of the Democratic party could learn from Newsom's actions.
More from the Daily Wire:
Newsom said during a press conference that the ventilators had been sent by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and that they were being repaired by Bloom Energy, The Hill reported.
“Rather than lamenting about it, rather than complaining about it, rather than pointing fingers, rather than generating headlines in order to generate more stress and anxiety, we got a car and a truck,” Newsom said after he toured the facility where the ventilators would be repaired. “We had those 170 brought here to this facility at 8 a.m. this morning, and they are quite literally working on those ventilators right now.”
On Twitter, Newsom said the ventilators were expected to be fixed and back in Los Angeles on Monday.
Of course Newsom's sheer mention of the broken ventilators resulted in the headlines he said he didn't want. The liberal media ran with the story and smeared Trump for sending dysfunctional ventilators to California.
Was this all part of Newsom's plan to ultimately mock the Trump administration?
Who knows, I certainly wouldn't be surprised if it was, but I'm choosing to give him the benefit of the doubt right now.
That said, no other states have said they received any broken ventilators.
Do you applaud Newsom's move to fix the ventilators himself? Or do you think he ultimately knew it would come back to bite Trump anyways? Drop a comment below!
