Dr. Eli David, Deep Instinct co-founder and Forbes Technology council member, asked who was going to tell the governor that “To Kill A Mockingbird” was banned in certain school districts over concerns of racism. 

Author and Arizona Senate candidate Blake Masters said the book Newsom appeared to be reading in the photo was a “terrible novel.”

Sen. Ted Cruz’s, R-Texas, communications director Steve Guest said Newsom was taking a “page out of LeBron Jame’s playbook,” and included a screenshot of a headline that said, “LeBron James is the king of reading the first page of books.”

Others asked if he was posing at the French Laundry, an exclusive spot where Newsom was spotted maskless in November 2020. 

“Is this the French Laundry? I’ve never been able to get a reservation (and I’ve tried),” journalist Josh Barro asked.

Mike Bird, an editor at the Economist, responded to Barro, saying that Newsom had five books to read, so “good luck getting one anytime soon.” 

A Virginia state House of Delegates representative, Nick Freitas, said Newsom “graduated from coloring books.” 

“Just remember Gavin, 1984 is a cautionary tale, not a guide,” he said.

DESANTIS HITS BACK AGAINST NEWSOM’S ATTACKS: ‘PEOPLE VOTE WITH THEIR FEET’

Newsom faced a recall election in September 2021 as many felt he mishandled the state’s response to infectious-disease. California had strict restrictions in place when it came to schools, places of worship and businesses. 

The California governor remained in office as a majority of voters said “no” to the recall question on their ballots.
