Newsom calls DeSantis a ‘small, pathetic man’ amid questions over migrant flight
California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) on Monday escalated his war of words with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican presidential candidate, calling him a “small, pathetic man” and floating kidnapping charges over a flight of migrants sent to his state.
The Democratic governor lobbed the barbs on Twitter after California’s attorney general said Florida’s government appeared to be behind a flight of South American migrants who arrived unexpectedly in Sacramento last week.
