Things got heated during Thursday night’s debate as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis went head-to-head with extreme leftist California Governor Gavin Newsom.
In the debate, DeSantis presented a map highlighting areas in San Francisco where human feces has become a major health concern due to the homeless crisis.
“This is a map of San Francisco,” said DeSantis.
“You may be asking ‘what is that plotting?’” DeSantis asked as he pulled out the map.
“This is an app where they plot the human feces that are found on the streets of San Francisco. You see how almost the whole thing is covered because that is what has happened in one of the previous greatest cities this country has ever had. Human feces is now a fact of life except when a communist dictator comes to town. Then they cleaned up the streets. They lined the streets with Chinese flags, they didn’t put American flags there, they cleaned everything up, so they’re willing to do it for a communist dictator, but they’re not willing to do it for their own people.”
All Newsom could muster in response was a nervous chuckle…
He was referring to Chinese President Xi Jinping, who visited the city in November.
Daily Mail has more on the story:
Ron DeSantis pulled out a map of human feces on the streets of San Francisco and tore into the homelessness and crime in the city in his fiery debate with California Governor Gavin Newsom on Thursday night.
Newsom, a Democrat, claimed he had taken 68,000 people off the streets and closed 6,000 homeless camps when the Florida governor pulled out the visual aid.
‘You may be asking ‘what is that plotting?’ This is an app where they plot the human feces that are found on the streets of San Francisco,’ Republican Gov. DeSantis detailed. ‘That is what has happened in one of the previous greatest cities this country has ever had.’
He then took a jab at Newsom for cleaning it up for the visit of Chinese president Xi Jinping earlier this month as the testy showdown wrapped.
The pair went to war over COVID policies, the southern border, taxes, crime and book bans in the primetime head-to-head on Fox News .
Critics ridiculed DeSantis for this stunt. Although it might have been a bit extreme, he is definitely not wrong.
Under Newsom, California has deteriorated to the level of a third-world country.
Open the Books compiled a map titled “2011-2019 San Francisco Human Waste Reportings,” featuring pins (colored appropriately in brown) marking locations where residents reported human feces. The map depicts what seems to be widespread coverage of the city with these reports.
Per the San Francisco Chronicle, the number of 311 calls concerning feces-related service requests in San Francisco surged by 400% from 2012 to 2021.
In 2021 alone, San Francisco received 13,856 reports of human or animal waste between January 1 and July 12.
In an attempt to tackle the feces issue, a local tech entrepreneur named Sean Miller created an app called Snapcrap back in 2019.
I moved to San Francisco in May of 2017. I was fresh out of college and had spent the previous 6 months desperately searching for a job in the Bay Area so that I could finally fulfill my dream of moving to California, the greatest state in the country. I can’t believe I actually thought that at the time.
It took me about 1 day to realize that this place was in major trouble. Take a quick walk through most neighborhoods and you’ll notice the human and animal waste, needles, trash, and other refuse that litters the streets and sidewalks.
Astonishingly, leftist nutter Eric Swalwell thinks this was a loss for DeSantis somehow.

It was most definitely a win.

Holy cow, that close by DeSantis showing the San Francisco poop map and then pointing out Newsom cleans up the streets for China and not his own people…that is one of the biggest throat punches I’ve ever seen a Democrat take. I laughed out loud.— Steve Deace (@SteveDeaceShow) December 1, 2023
I've never seen a bigger burn during a debate in my entire life. I am still laughing. Pure savagery from Ron DeSantis. The poop map is real. It's funny but also very sad for San Francisco.#poopmap #poopclip #RonDesantis #Debate #NEWSOMVSDeSANTIS @RonDeSantis #Desantis2024 pic.twitter.com/d42LYSTF5p— MattA (@MattAAW) December 1, 2023
Someday, I will tell my grandchildren about how Gavin Newsom’s presidential aspirations were ended by a poop map. 🤣— Liberty Belle (@iLibertyBelle) December 1, 2023
