Former Republican Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee described Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom as “phonier than a vegan at a steakhouse” Thursday after the lawmaker reportedly went to dinner at a fancy French restaurant amid a coronavirus lockdown.
Huckabee joked that at least Newsom “didn’t sing, he didn’t chant and didn’t worship. Those things would have been dangerous,” he told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”
“Simply going and not wearing a mask and yelling with his friends, that’s OK. Look: he is phonier than a vegan at a steakhouse and he just proved it. And that video just undid him,” the Fox News contributor said in reference to images of the dinner.
