“I mean, listen, he didn’t just come wanting to be president. Now, that’s all been said — he looks presidential. Apparently, he’s been left out of the main cast. ‘s family is beautiful. He was sharp,” said Const. “So he was on stage debating not just former congressmen and current governors and lawyers.”

“Why do you say he wasn’t having an argument?” Mr. Watters asked.

“I mean, he was so fast. He was pulling numbers left and right,” was the immediate reaction of Const.

Mr. Watters interjected that the numbers Mr. Newsom cited were “not correct,” and Mr. Const. pushed back, insisting that “Polity Facts got through.”

“PolitiFact, stop with PolitiFact. They still say that laptop is fake, get out of here. But do you really understand that he’s beaten down by the substance? Watters he asked. “So all the statistics are there: borders, taxes, crime, poop map! Was poop map fake news?”

Const. said the “poo map” was “fake news” because Newsom wasn’t mayor at the time, noting that it was also just a “gimmick” and not “actual data.”

“No, he’s just the governor now,” Watters replied. “Yeah, no, I know Democrats don’t like contraptions at all.”
