As Twitchy reported, President Joe Biden flew into California Monday to campaign for Gov. Gavin Newsom, who faces a recall vote Tuesday. Biden didn’t seem at all sure what to do with his mask as Newsom met him at the airport, fiddling with it a little as Newsom approached and then giving up and giving Newsom a handshake instead. Remember when elbow-bumps were going to replace the handshake?

Biden spoke at a rally for Newsom, telling Californians that they could either vote to keep Newsom as governor or get Donald Trump. “It’s not a joke,” he said.

That’s one of his “folksy” phrases he falls back on, like “C’mon, man.”

We’re guessing Newsom’s going to hang on by a thread, because 2021 is just that awful.
