Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom called Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott “absolutely reckless” for lifting mask mandates in the state of Texas. But does Newsom have a leg to stand on when it comes to criticizing other governor’s COVID-19 response?

From draconian lockdowns to violation of his own COVID-19 protocols to keeping children out of classrooms for nearly a full calendar year, Newsom’s pandemic management has been marred with a number of scandals and errors. Newsom is also facing a notable recall effort that claims to have enough signatures to trigger a special election later this year, yet went out of his way on Twitter to criticize Abbott putting an end to his state’s mask mandate — a move from Abbott that will likely be a popular one.
