  1. This is very interesting. I have always thought of the Governor as being bi-sexual and it is good to know the reality. He has lived the American dream from upper middle class youth to “King-of-the-Hill”. His net worth is amazing. Who is in charge of his campaign at this time? who is his personal attorney?
    Thank you for the article and in advance for the other information. 🙂 🙂

  2. Hello, I’m concerned about the Governor being pro-choice. Babies in the womb are alive , should have human rights, and need to be protected from being destroyed. Abortion hurts women too, having to live with the guilt and remorse forever. What should be promoted, is for people to take precautions to avoid unwanted pregnancy in the first place. Abortion should not be used as a method of birth control. it is really not a women’s issue, political issue or religious issue, and certainly not health care, it is just murder. Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath to do no harm. Do you think a doctor would become an abortionist if it weren’t for the money? So many people would love to adopt a baby that they can’t have on their own. There should be more state funding facilities to help and support pregnant women, not kill their babies. We were all in the womb once, and that’s where all of our lives began. Thank you


    From what became of California is factual enough from politicized scientific hearsay created to bankrupt the State so the People suffer economically and false number of Covid 19 cases to be a new backwards towards a dictatorship role. Not what to vote for but to prevent from voting based on party but for the Peoples’ best interests not the voted party’s own personal interests covered up by pandemics.

  4. I never knew that Kimberly Guilfoyle was his first wife; she now is serious with Donald Trump Jr.
    What a coincidence.
