On Sunday, the reigning two-time NFL Most Valuable Player award winner Aaron Rodgers appeared on TV Host Bill Maher’s Podcast where the California native slammed the blue state saying the “State’s going to s*** but I’m hanging on.”
Obviously recorded prior to the Packers quarterbacks Sunday game, Rodgers described on the “Club Random” podcast that “I grew up in a small town, very little cases up in Chico, California but all the small businesses? F***ing gone.”
Business Insider explained that an estimated 40,000 small businesses in California were closed in September 2020, more than any other state since the beginning of the pandemic, according to a report published by Yelp. At the time, half of these companies were permanently shuttered, the report said.
NFL QB Aaron Rodgers says his home state of California is "going to s**t" thanks to the state's poor leadership.

Rodgers continues in his fearless expression of his opinion on these issues including vaccines and “woke” cancel culture. Rodgers gets hate and captures headlines as he displays his thoughts counter to what traditional athletes or famous people would say.
Rodgers continued to rip into California on his latest appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience “Joe, they closed the beaches in California. They closed the beaches where I live in California and all around the coast.”
The Daily Mail reported that Rodgers also spoke of his disapproval of AB 2098, a new bill heading to the desk of Governor Newsom that could see doctors disciplined for promoting COVID-19 misinformation. The law is controversial because the definitions of ‘misinformation’ and ‘disinformation’ are so broad.
Rodgers also explained how he does not consider himself to be a conservative and used the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade as an example.
“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.
When explaining his thought process for each of these issues and why he is so vocal about them he quoted Martin Luther King saying, “The great MLK said you have a moral obligation to object to unjust rules and rules that make no sense.”
