"California got too crazy for me," Michaels, 50, explained on "The Sage Steele Show."

"I grew up here. I'm a woman. I'm a gay woman. My mom's a Jew. My dad's an Arab. I have a Black kid. And believe it or not, my son is half Latin, even though he doesn't look like it."

"I hold a million cards in your game of woke victimology poker," she added. "And when I leave California, maybe you've lost your f---ing mind. Just maybe! Like when you have me running from home, maybe it's gone way too far."

She explained that her views haven't changed but "the world around me is shifting and I haven't moved."

"Some of these laws that are passing here are absolutely f---ing mind-boggling," she added. "In relation to crime, protecting our kids, like, we're decriminalizing everything, which arguably I would probably be okay with but we're not regulating any of it. So it's like, okay, you're gonna decriminalize sex work but only so women can loiter on the streets, not to keep them safe, not to have them pay taxes, not to make them, you know, regularly check for STDs, not to take away the pimps out of the equation. Like if you made that argument to me, I'd be like, ‘well, yes, of course.’"

"I could be liberal! I could go there with you! I grew up this way!" she added.

"Or the fact that a 12-year-old child can be put on off-label cancer drugs to irreparably change their body," she continued. "Again, if my son came to me and said, ‘Mom’—or my daughter—'I think I'm trans.' I'd say okay, you know, like, you want to dress this way. You want me to call you whatever the heck you want, dress, fine. Explore it. I love you. I'm cool, do you as long as we're safe, but we're not changing your body until it's fully developed. I'm sorry. Conversation's over. Can't get a f---ing tattoo!"

Michaels now lives in Miami. She told California resident Bill Maher that living in Florida "feels less crazy." She also had harsh words for Far-Left Governor Gov. Gavin Newsom.

"You’re going to decriminalize everything, but regulate nothing. You’re prioritizing the craziest s--- I’ve ever seen in my life. C’mon, really?" Michaels said.  "I can’t stand him."

Michaels isn't the only Californian who lost love for the state. People continue to leave in record numbers in search for more sanity.
