In the end, the California recall effort to oust Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) didn’t come close and people on social media took every chance to let Larry Elder know it.
Elder became the face of the Republican side of the recall election with his vow to repeal mask, COVID-19 vaccine and testing requirements in schools and workplaces.
But voters weren’t interested.
Elder’s critics on Twitter were only too happy to share the news:
Overheard: The vote was so lopsided, it’s basically Elder abuse.

Hey @larryelder I dare your ass to say this loss by 30%+ was rigged. Just go for it, Homeslice. Ride that train ALL the way into Crazytown and whatnot.

As one of the few conservative radio hosts not to die of Covid this month, Larry Elder should consider himself lucky

So California rejected Larry Elder. Weird that a large, racially diverse state doesn’t want to be led by a guy who thinks George Zimmerman is a hero, Stephen Miller should be president, slaveowners deserved reparations, COVID should proliferate and the minimum wage should be $0. pic.twitter.com/xeMFduNAtq

Trump 2.0 Elder appears to be a big sad loser in his attempt to become governor of my state. 👍

If you have a video of Larry Elder crying, please tag me so I can find it.
I didn’t have desert tonight.
