NFL quarterback and California native Aaron Rodgers opened up about problems happening in his home state under the Democrats’ watch.
During an appearance on Bill Maher’s podcast, Rodgers said California is “going to sh**” and all of the small business in his small hometown are “f***ing gone.”
“State’s going to sh**, but I’m hanging on,” Rodgers said. “I grew up in a small town, very little cases up in Chico, California but all the small businesses? F***ing gone.”
Rodgers is currently the NFL’s reigning Most Valuable Player and he notoriously refused to get the experimental coronavirus vaccine injected into his body last season, which triggered leftists everywhere.
Specifically, Rodgers criticized Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom for implementing extremely harsh restrictions on small businesses in the state.
Maher mentioned Newsom’s new censorship bill that is expected to punish doctors for spreading so-called COVID “misinformation” and “disinformation.”
“Based on whose standard of misinformation?” Rodgers asked.
This isn’t the first time that Rodgers commented on California’s political leadership. He also spoke out during an appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast.

In response to Supreme Court’s historic decision to overrule Roe v. Wade, Rodgers said, “I think there’s a lot of people that believe that you should have your own decision-making on your own medical decisions.”
“My thing is I have an issue with the hypocrisy in society in general and I know you do as well, but abortion has been a hot topic, right,” he continued. “And especially after Roe v. Wade got overturned and sent back to the states, or whatever. I don’t believe the government should have any control over what we do with our bodies.”
“As much as I might lean more pro life, I don’t want the government to tell me I can’t smoke a cigar, I can’t have a drink of alcohol, I can’t choose my own medical decisions,” Rodgers said.
“And if I’m a woman, don’t f—ing tell me what to do. Like whether or not I agree with what you decide to do, who cares? And the government should not have a decision that infringes upon my own personal freedoms,” he said.
