Meaning what?

Trump isn't a Southern Baptist.

These people stereotype and paint entire places they hate with a broad brush. To them, California is a disgrace to the country.


Was that your father?

Or did your father become the preacher after that.

Yet... he doesn't call those other states a disgrace to the country. I guess the fact that CA is trying to make him disclose financials has nothing to do with it..
Make no doubt about it. I have alot of concerns regarding California. As a teenager I thought about moving to California alot (I still live in Georgia). I wanted to get away. As I got older I see that California has alot of issues. California could do alot better than it is. On the other hand, I can also tell that this is about promoting political division. As you say, other states, run by both Republicans and Democrats are having alot of problems.

Trump is correct again! I used to live there years ago and it has turned into a cesspool of garbage with all the illegal aliens...thanks to Democrats who have destroyed that state.

How screwed up do you have to be to stay in a constant state of rage over places where most of you have never lived or have never been, and/or over people that you will never know?

Collectively, don’t you ever tire of constantly being played for political purposes?

Apparently not.

Once again, President Trump is correct. Conditions on the streets of LA and SF are far more inhumane than what is happening at the border and nobody there cares.

Slavery (market value of humans being sold) is capitalistic in nature.. so is human trafficking. I know that statement sounds idiotic (on purpose) but your post is equally so.

Yeah that part of California can be rather conservative, considering the state. I have relatives there and they like Trump a lot. I always think it's kinda fun they even have sort of a soft Southern twang there still. We didn't have that down in Southern California.
