California Governor Mocked after Doubling Down on Proposal that Doctors Should Prescribe Housing

Earth to Governor Moonbeam…What Planet Are You Living on?

(Fox News) California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom raised eyebrows on Friday for saying doctors “should be able” to provide housing like they do medicine.

Newsom initially expressed the idea during his State of the State address on Wednesday, arguing that housing and health care are intertwined.

“Health care and housing can no longer be divorced. After all, what’s more fundamental to a person’s well-being than a roof over their head?” Newsom said. “Doctors should be able to write prescriptions for housing the same way they do for insulin and antibiotics. Why not?”

Newsom reiterated his case on Twitter.

“Doctors should be able to write prescriptions for housing the same way they do for insulin or antibiotics,” Newsom began his Twitter thread. “We need to start targeting social determinants of health. We need to start treating brain health like we do physical health. What’s more fundamental to a person’s well being than a roof over their head?”

Many had fun at the expense of the California governor.

“Legal weed in California seems to be going well,” RealClearInvestigations senior writer Mark Hemingway quipped.

“*Coughing* please, help, i need a 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath with *cough* french doors to the patio,” former Business Insider writer Joe Perticone tweeted.
