(PatrioticPost.com)- On Saturday, the elusive Governor of California finally emerged after an unusual 13-day absence from the public eye.
Governor Gavin Newsom was spotted at the lavish wedding of Ivy Love Getty, the great-granddaughter of J. Paul Getty and one of the heiresses to the vast Getty family fortune.
The last public appearance Newsom made was on Tuesday, October 27 when he received a COVID booster shot before the press. He was scheduled to fly to Glasgow, Scotland two days later to attend the UN Climate Change Conference, however, canceled his trip at the last minute citing “family obligations.”
Then he dropped out of sight.
Social media was buzzing over the noticeably absent Newsom, with some speculating that he suffered an adverse reaction to the COVID booster shot. The governor’s office attempted to tamp down the rumors, notifying the press that Newsom was hard at work in Sacramento tackling urgent state issues.
Then on Saturday, he and his wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom were spotted at Getty’s extravagant San Francisco City Hall wedding officiated by none other than the maskless Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
Also in attendance at the faux royal nuptials was San Francisco Mayor London Breed.
Unsurprisingly, the wealthy Newsom is in tight with the Getty family. His father Bill was lifelong friends with Ivy Getty’s grandfather Gordon Getty. Gordon and his late socialite wife Ann even came to think of Gavin as a son. The Getty family helped fund Newsom’s early business ventures. They also backed his political ambitions starting with his first run for mayor of San Francisco.
Much like his mask-free night of fine dining at the French Laundry last year, Newsom finally emerging from hiding to attend a posh, high-society wedding isn’t sitting well with Californians who are struggling under his mismanagement of their state.
Perhaps that explains why, on Monday, his staff announced that Newsom would give a last-minute, live-streamed “fireside chat” at the California Economic Summit on Tuesday. They have to do something to give the impression that Newsom isn’t an out-of-touch elitist who doesn’t have time for the little people.
