    Gov. Newson, Please address the milking of California customers by lumber other building material companies during a pandemic. This is corruption on a large scale.

    You can thank Newsom and Becerra for saving the ACA. He fought against Trump and the GQP.

    Newsom needs to WIN. NO GQP!

    The one thing this election has demonstrated is that California law needs to be amended to make it significantly more difficult to run as a recall election candidate. $4,000 + 5 dozen or so signatures, or a petition of 7000 some signatures is arguably to low a threshold for even for States like Delaware or Wyoming. Making that threshold for a state the size of California is ridiculous.

  • miglespt97

    I'm pretty sure she'sbeing taken out of context. She's not complaining about the homeless themselves, but that the state created the conditions for such homelessness. I'm PRETTY SURE THAT SHE'S NOT THAT MUCH OF AN IDIOT!!

    just because Jenner is transgender and advocates for herself, that doesn’t make her an “advocate for transgender people.”

    Oh, then Caitlyn is safe. She wasn't convicted of bribery, she just killed a bunch of people in a car accident and got away with it. Luckily, she gave her name as Bruce to throw them off the trail.

    If I want to start playing girl sport right now. I wouldn’t be best person on team at this moment but once get back in shape oh yes I would be best person in league. Lebron James would score 150 to 200 point a night if played on girls teams he’s too big and too strong.

    Wow Trevor Noah won’t touch this while trump was in office. Know that they got White House he can do what ever he wants. It’s harder to vote in Georgia rather than run for office in California. Nothing wrong with being tired being seeing homeless people. They spend over 1 billion dollars on homes. How much more money is need to help homeless.

    Trevor I hope your folks have Kevin Paffrath (meet Kevin) for an interview soon, Kaitlynn is non essential in comparison. He’s has an amazing plan for the state. You’re a trail blazer, don’t miss out!

  • TheBlackPhantom2018

    These “Recall Newsom” people do not represent California.

  • Ryoko1832

    TBA its mainly the republican voters out here that actually wont have the votes to recall him. Meanwhile those republican supporters were out gathering those signatures without wearing masks or social distancing. The main guy pushing it here in the Palm Springs Area actually got covid along with some of his people helping.

    I don’t mind recalling Newsom, as he’s an extreme leftist and has made California insane by flip-flopping on Pandemic restrictions. But I will never vote for Jenner, who is easily the dumbest member of the Kardashian clan.

  • Shellay Mills

    I don't agree w/ everything that Caitlyn Jenner says but I DO agree w/ her statements on Transwomen playing sports against CisWomen. Physically, it is NOT fair. I do think it is unfortunate that it leaves transwomen in a bad position as it pertains to sports, but ciswomen should not be penalized or face unfair competition physically when its not their fault either.

    OR, perhaps Ms. Jenner has changed her mind about transathletes, as she has become more knowledgeable about the actual LGBTQ community, which she's still fairly new to, having lived as a man for more years than she has been a woman. Against her true identity, yes. But a much different community. We could, maybe, hold her up as an example of changing your mind due to mental growth, though it's more likely to be a political move, in this case. Or could the two coexist, as reasons? All are possible. There are as many truths, to this one, as there are, perspectives.

  • javageek

    How is it a let down Trevor for the Trans community. There should be another category in sports for trans athletes. And homelessness is caused due to lack of jobs due to failed liberal/progressive policies. People do flee california due the homelessness issue because they don't want to end up homelss themselves. You are no comedian Trevor. Your just a puppet for the democratic party.

  • Charles Xavier

    Can we just look at the fact that in the last 20 years two democrat governors have been recalled, maybe the people of California will wake up, jenner’s policies aren’t bad ones if you want economic growth

    What's out of touch is the writing and research on this one. Way below standard. The petition took a year to get signatures, which were all MAGA/Q people who were angry about wearing masks and staying home. Only 12% of voters. And CA wasn't in "quarantine" at the time, because restaurants were open. Plus, CA has the lowest covid rates in the country, so no this isn't about his coronavirus response.

    Why is no one talking about the fact that Caitlin Jenner is a trans women defending women? It’s not fair when biological boys compete against biological girls. Boys are born with bigger muscles and more strength. Of course they will beat the girls! Caitlin is not switching agendas, she has common sense, because she was an athlete. She is defending women and girls.
