On Monday, California Governor Gavin Newsom made an absolutely out of pocket comparison of people who have not received the COVID-19 vaccine and therefor "choosing to live with this virus," to driving while drunk.
“You can’t choose to drive drunk. You put your life at risk. You put other lives at risk," he said.
On CNN just now, CA Governor Gavin Newsom just compared unvaccinated people to drunk drivers.
“It’s like drunk drivers, you don’t have the right to go out and drink and drive and put everybody else at risk including your own life.”

Newsom continued, “We don’t want to go back to where we were this fall. We don’t want to wait until we’re overwhelmed in our ICUs. We don’t want to wait until thousands and thousands of more Californians die of a virus where they simply can save their lives by getting a simple vaccine shot. You’ve got 25% — you noted, 75% of Californians have received at least one dose. But 25% of people are choosing to live with this virus. You can’t choose to drive drunk. You put your life at risk. You put other lives at risk. At the end of the day, we’ve got to be a little more assertive to help people get this disease behind us, help society ultimately end this pandemic.”
Later he added that misinformation about the vaccine is “impacting our ability to get our kids into schools.”
