California Governor Gavin Newsom was caught many times not wearing a mask during his recent trip to SoFi Stadium to watch the 49ers-Rams game. The move was in defiance of local mandates and the mandates of the stadium.
Newsom defended himself, including the maskless photographs he took with NBA legend Magic Johnson.
“I was very judicious yesterday. Very judicious. And you’ll see in the photo that I did take, where Magic was kind enough, generous enough to ask me for a photograph, and in my left hand’s the mask and I took a photo,” the governor said at a press conference Monday, according to the LA Weekly.
