Outrage after California governor newsom threatens rolling blackouts while he wears a coat in AC filled room!

California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom was slammed as a hypocrite Wednesday for wearing a fleece coat in a seemingly air-conditioned room while urging residents to “save energy” amid a historic heat wave.

“CA is experiencing an unprecedented heatwave [sic]. This will be the hottest & longest on record for September,” Newsom said in a tweet Tuesday, as temperatures soared into triple digits in some parts of the state.

“Our energy grid is being pushed to its max. The risk of outages is real. We need everyone to double down to save energy after 4 p.m. today,” Newsom went on.

In an accompanying video, Newsom told Golden Staters to “Pre-cool your home. Run your conditioner earlier,” while wearing a zipped-up black fleece coat and baseball cap.

“He’s sitting inside wearing a warm jacket during a heat wave, telling the rest of us not to use AC,” one observer noted on Twitter.
