Remember back in the summer of 2018 when CNN’s Brian Stelter went full Melania-truther? The first lady hadn’t been seen in public for weeks, and Stelter was on top of it. “Go ahead and imagine how you’d feel if a different First Lady wasn’t seen in public for 3+ weeks,” was Stelter’s retort to those noting she had been seen.

As Twitchy reported, it’s November 8, and nobody’s seen California Gov. Gavin Newsom since October 27, when he had his COVID booster shot. How many days do you have to be missing before it becomes a story on CNN?
The public has no idea where the governor is. https://t.co/nR0i03jrsb

Got boosted so hard he disappeared from the public eye entirely. You know, maybe these shots are more effective than I thought!

For what it’s worth, something called The Defender is reporting that Newsom was injured:

GBS is Guillane-Barre syndrome. It might or might not be true, but Dave Rubin has a good point. How many days do you have to be out of public site before Stelter starts asking questions? What if you’re Ron DeSantis?
I’m back in California after a week in Florida and apparently Gavin Newsom is missing. Cool.

If @GovRonDeSantis went missing for 11 days I wonder if CNN would cover it.

After one day they’d have the whole network on it ..

No matter. Should Governor DeSantis go missing, G_d forbid, I and the rest of Florida would go out looking for him personally.

@CNN would go under without DeSantis

They went nuts when melania disappeared for a few days

Is @FoxNews covering Newsom being missing?

You’d have to ask Stelter since that’s his job to know.
So where is Newsom?
He's probably just on paternity leave.

We’ll they haven’t wondered about the President, so IDK.

As we were writing this post, we got the news that Newsom couldn’t make it to the U.N. climate conference because he “has young kids.”
