Liberal California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s brotherly, e-cigarette-wielding impersonation, exaggerating the eccentricities of lefties, has left a viral mark.

Josh Meyers, 48, has been in television and movies for decades, including several stints on MADtv and Date Movie.

He is also the brother of ‘Late Night’ host Seth Meyers, but is on a different talk show where he turned Newsom’s character, whom he calls a mix of a frat boy and Jeff Spicoli from ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High,’ One of the favorites. .

Meyers has been doing the impression for over a decade, including on a mock talk show called ‘The Gavin Newsom Show’ that aired on Al Gore-owned Current TV. He even performed an impersonation on his brother’s NBC show.

However, it is on Jimmy Kimmel’s show where the impression caught the attention of viewers and even the governor himself.

A comedian’s impersonation of liberal California Governor Gavin Newsom exaggerating the eccentricities of lefties has left a viral mark.

Meyers interprets his impression of Newsom, whom he calls a ‘central casting’ politician, as even more of a liberal caricature than the governor seems in real life, but perhaps more of a typical ‘Hollywood bro’ type.

“There’s a little bit of the Cali stereotype, which I think the rest of the country resonates with quite strongly, and that makes it fun because it’s very smart, has a great culture and is very good from the beginning,” he said. he says of the impression.

In one sketch, he offers to share his vape amid a fake commercial promoting his expansion of drug access, before telling a constituent, “I only vape Merlot.”

At one point, Meyers, like Newsom, says he would make “vaping mandatory in offices, hospitals and Ferrari dealerships.”

In another excerpt, he takes the governor’s obsession with solar energy and wonders if he can harness the power of the moon: “What about lunar energy?”

Kimmel also had Meyers parody the governor’s infamous Fox News debate with Ron DeSantis, staging a fake battle with MyPillow entrepreneur Mike Lindell.

There is more serious criticism of Newsom, such as when he was caught dining out against COVID-19 regulations during the peak of the pandemic.

He joked about the difficult decision Newsom made, such as ‘whether to order the Monterey Bay abalone gratin or the Devil’s Gulch rabbit.’ Just kidding, it’s a prix fixe menu so you get everything.

Meyer’s criticism comes from a California native who told the San Francisco Chronicle that he likes Newsom and is a liberal himself.

Still, he says his anti-Newsom friends have appreciated his criticism of the man some have held up as Joe Biden’s replacement.

“I have friends who definitely don’t like Newsom, and they text me and say, ‘Oh, keep criticizing him.’ And then I have friends who like him and say, ‘We really enjoyed him.’ like it,” he said.

The Chronicle has verified the print and noted that while Newsom is in favor of drug legalization, he has never smoked marijuana.

“He’s skilled and handsome, and there’s a lot about him that his fans love and his detractors hate,” Meyers said.

He started printing during the pandemic through a green screen he set up in his garage. His brother put it on the air.

The impression even left its mark on the governor, who spoke to Meyers’ brother about it on a recent episode of his show.

Newsom called him “next level… but I don’t want to admit that,” and his 14-year-old son said Meyers is “way cooler” than the real man.

Meyers has done the impression on several shows and plans to continue in the run-up to the election, where Newsom will likely be active in the campaign for Joe Biden.

Most recently, social media was mocked when Newsom posted a selfie at the US-Mexico border.

The video shows Newsom wearing a pair of aviator sunglasses and a dress shirt standing at the border in Southern California near Tijuana, with the fence extended behind him.

“This is the San Ysidro port of entry, not far away, which is the largest in the Western Hemisphere,” Newsom said in the video. “We just met here with the National Guard with customs agents and with border control, talking about our partnerships.”

Newsom said they have 390 National Guard members focused on fentanyl in California.

“Look, at the end of the day, they need more resources,” Newsom said.

It sparked an avalanche of criticism from Republicans and Newsom critics online.

California Assembly Republican Leader James Gallagher responded to X.

“Thousands of Californians have been poisoned by fentanyl flowing across the border; now that we’re five months away from an election, @GavinNewsom finally decides to act,” he wrote.

“How many lives would have been saved if I had done it years ago instead of waiting until it was politically expedient?”

His post was retweeted by other Republican assembly members. California Republicans accused the state’s Democratic leader and close ally of President Biden of “dancing on adding state resources.”
