Gavin Newsom didn’t take the bait Wednesday when asked about his infamous ex-wife Kimberly Guilfoyle, the gung-ho MAGA girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr.
During a pandemic press conference, California’s governor faced the inevitable inquiry about whether or not he watched Guilfoyle trash the Golden State during her fiery speech at the Republican National Convention that quickly became a meme.
“I will jump on the grenade on behalf of everybody,” veteran politics reporter Elex Michaelson with Fox 11 Los Angeles said as it became clear he planned to ask about Newsom’s first wife.
“You don’t have to. You don’t have to,” Newsom pleaded with a slight chuckle.
