California Attorney General Xavier Becerra had some harsh words for President Trump just hours before he’s scheduled to touch down in the Golden State Monday; sarcastically warning the Commander-in-Chief to avoid Congresswoman Maxine Waters during his visit this week.
Becerra was speaking with MSNBC’s Andrew Mitchell when he was asked to comment on the President’s fiery speech over the weekend, where he called Maxine Waters a “low-IQ individual.”
“I also wanted to give you a moment to comment on your former Congressional colleague Maxine Waters after what the President said about Maxine Waters Saturday night in Pittsburgh,” said Mitchell.
“I think Donald Trump probably said that about 2,000 miles away from Maxine Waters because he’s probably too afraid to say it to her face,” fired-back Becerra. “I suspect that Donald Trump would be afraid to come up to her and actually say something like that to her.”
“Maxine can take care of herself, and I would urge Donald Trump to be careful if he ever found himself in a dark alley with Maxine Waters,” he added.

CALIFORNIA CHAOS: DOJ to INVESTIGATE Oakland Mayor After ICE TIP-OFF
The White House confirmed this week that the Department of Justice was launching an investigation into a California mayor who tipped-off illegal immigrants of impending ICE sweeps; calling the left-wing politicians actions “outrageous,” reports the Los Angeles Times.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called-out Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf Thursday over her decision to publicly disclose imminent immigration crackdowns throughout the Bay Area, telling residents to be on the lookout for federal agents within their communities.
“I think it’s outrageous that a mayor would circumvent federal authorities and certainly put them in danger by making a move such as that,” said Sanders, adding that her actions were currently “under review” to see if she violated federal law.
“The Oakland mayor’s decision to publicize her suspicions about ICE operations further increased that risk for my officers and alerted criminal aliens — making clear that this reckless decision was based on her political agenda with the very federal laws that ICE is sworn to uphold,” said ICE’s acting director.
Oakland, like many other California municipalities, considers itself a ‘Sanctuary City,’ often shielding illegal immigrants and undocumented workers from federal authorities and border patrol agents.
CALIFORNIA CHAOS: Local Community FIGHTS BACK Against ‘Sanctuary’ TENT CITY
Local residents in southern California are fighting back against a two-mile long stretch of makeshift homeless shelters in Orange County; demanding officials crackdown on “human waste” and “used needles” that riddle the encampment, reports Fox News.
In stark contrast from local governments in Los Angeles and San Francisco, the Orange County authorities are beginning to clamp down on the tent city, describing the “illegal” housing as a major public health concern.
“It’s becoming part of the permanent landscape in those communities and there is no way we are going to allow Orange County land that is supposed to be used by residents to be occupied by the homeless,” said a member of the Orange County Board of Supervisors.
In response to public pressure, the county council cleared nearly 25 tons of trash, over 1,000 pounds of “human waste” and over 5,000 needles from the camp.
The ACLU and other human rights activists have denounced the move, filing a civil rights lawsuit to stop the county’s crackdown after the decision was officially approved by the council.
‘That isn’t going to happen in our county. It’s not going to be our skid row,” added the Orange County supervisor.
