He faced a recall because it’s ridiculously easy to start a recall in California. He won in a landslide that probably won’t reflect much erosion from his last election, if any. This analysis seems to be ignoring these very salient points
Larry Elder: I lost on California recall election night.
Kasie Hunt: Hold my beer.
The most idiotic thread ever on a night that Newsom is crushing it on the recall.
BTW: Newsom's pandemic management means CA is now the only state out of CDC's 'high' COVID transmission category; Newsom's economic management means CA has the #1 economy in the country.
This is a horrible take. Like…really bad.
What happened in CA was a comfortable and rational Dem party getting blindsided by LUNATICS-R-US!
When people woke up, lunatics got BEAT!
THIS RECALL VOTE ONLY HAPPENED BECAUSE CALIFORNIA HAS A BATSHIT SYSTEM AND A JUDGE GAVE THEM 4 EXTRA MONTHS TO COLLECT SIGNATURES.
I we can all agree that Kasie Hunt is the biggest loser in the California recall.
You're a reporter. You should know how easy it is to get a recall election on the ballot in California.
One more thing -- 1 in 8 Americans live in California. That means California is a good "test case" ... California IS America.
More Beltway press idiocy.
Wow that's an absurd take. you need 12.5% of the public, roughly the percentage that believe in COVID vaccine microchips, to qualify a recall. https://t.co/zLrKeTzCu8
California Twitter dragging Kasie Hunt
Wow what the heck, Kasie?! Newsom apologized for the French Laundry mistake & accepted responsibility for his bad decision.
Elite is when your state is in disaster mode w/no power & you fly off to the Cancun Ritz & blame your kids. Or play golf while Americans die of Covid.
MAKE THIS LAW: The party that loses the recall must reimburse the money.
Kasie Hunt and Chris Cillizza have a good lead on the competition for the stupidest take on the California recall.
I wouldn’t count Chuck Todd out just yet, though.
Kasie Hunt went to CNN and became Chuck Todd
I don’t know a single person who actually lives here who cared about that story beyond finding the governor’s actions obnoxious
@JayneDutra @johnlegend @PrincessBravato @kasie
Texas here. I would LOVE to have a governor who eats at an expensive restaurant but cares about people staying alive and doesn't treat women like host bodies with bounty hunters looking for $10,000 payouts.
Congratulations Kasie Hunt for your “investigative piece” commissioned by The Federalist Society and Newsmax.
This is why journalists call you guys “talking heads”.
This is a stunningly bad take.
Regurgitating Republican talking points to balance Democratic successes does not make you an impartial journalist.
"Elites vs. the rest?" Explain how the extremely wealthy Loudoun County lead the manufactured CRT crisis & attacked schools? Or how middle class & wealthy folks were part of the Jan 6th insurrection? Or how those who made under 50K voted for Biden? This is a terrible analysis. https://t.co/QxCsuZ9LKF
She made zero mention of the incompetence of DeSantis here in Florida or Abbott in Texas…the media has to have their Dems in disarray narrative or they are lost I guess.
Kasie Hunt didn’t work out at MSNBC. Now she’s got a second (and likely last) chance at CNN. Instead of trying to be insightful and hoping it’s enough, she’s skipping straight to saying absurd things to stir up controversy, in the hope people will hate-watch her.
Glad I’m not the only one who sees Kasie Hunt’s takes as nothing more than Fox Propaganda Chuck Toddish stupidity that isn’t based in reality.
I’m calling Kasie Hunt “Qasie Hunt” until further notice, because she’s trending Qanon.
What happens when you hire a liberal who is not yet controlled by Groupthink: “Liberals turn on CNN’s Kasie Hunt after new hire breaks rank to criticize Democrats” https://t.co/GJPUHSE98E
Kasie Hunt - “I’m totally going to win the day for the worst take on a landslide win by the Dems”
Chris Cillizza - “Hold my beer” https://t.co/npPNEcTRx2
Kasie and Cillizza's takes throughout history:
"You know who had a good day after the Challenger? NASA"
"Forget the iceberg, this is actually all upside for White Star, and here's why"
"Personally I think the Dallas trip opens up all kinds of possibilities for Jackie"
I mean we simply turned on her terrible take because it was completely wrong. That's pretty much it. I'm sure Kasie is doing fine. No one is a victim here.
Newsom gained support since his last election in this frivolous recall. He outperformed Biden in CA!
Other than that, it was a huge waste of #276M.
Thank the #GQP for solidifying the Dems.
Hold Kasie Hunt accountable. It is time for the media and Republicans in Congress to be Americans.
