The public health situation in the nation's second-largest city is in "a complete breakdown," Dr. Drew Pinsky said Thursday night on "The Ingraham Angle."

“We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now,” Pinsky told host Laura Ingraham. “We have the three prongs of airborne disease, tuberculosis is exploding, (and) rodent-borne. We are one of the only cities in the country that doesn’t have a rodent control program, and sanitation has broken down.”

Pinsky’s comments followed news that Los Angeles police officer had contracted typhoid fever, a rare and life-threatening illness that fewer than 350 Americans contract each year.

Los Angeles had a typhus outbreak last summer and will likely have another this summer, Pinsky said. Meanwhile, bubonic plague – a pandemic that killed tens of millions of people during the 14th century – is “likely” already present in Los Angeles, Pinsky added.

“This is unbelievable. I can’t believe I live in a city where this is not Third World. This is medieval,” Pinsky said. “Third World countries are insulted if they are accused of being like this. No city on Earth tolerates this. The entire population is at risk.”

California can’t handle the current situation, let alone allow tens of thousands of illegal immigrants with no health records to flood its major cities, Pinsky added.

“[T]he government is somehow insisting that housing is the problem when in fact we have chronic mental illness, we have addiction, we have people who don’t want to leave the streets,” Pinsky said. “They literally won’t take the housing if we give it to them. And that’s the population that’s vulnerable, and is going to get so ill this summer. It scares me for their well-being.”

Asked why the liberal politicians aren’t doing more to alleviate these conditions, Pinsky said they are “disgustingly negligent.”

LA is pretty terrible, liberals are too blame for not handling the homeless population in a reasonable manner. The only people who live in LA are poor people are morons from out of state who don't realize how bad LA is. Everyone else commutes.

Good job trying to make this about illegal immigrants, when really it's about how the American healthcare system is a disaster and in desperate need of reform.

Using Fox News articles that are from their explicitly editorialized show the Ingram Racist Comedy Hour.

Nimatzo is fucking brain-dead.

"American healthcare system is a disaster and in desperate need of reform."

Lulz. I have a, just guessing, $250k medical bill from last week that I'll pay $4k on and then my out of pocket is covered for the year.

Must suck to double major and work as an uninsured, indentured bartender, though.

This is what happens to a society who has been brainwashed into believing that socialism kills. You get your Go-fuck-yourself-society where everyone is kicking downwards at the not so fortunate, where people poop on the streets and where diseases like tuberculosis and other shit is spreading, where people must arm themselves and where the fortunate feel like building walls is the solution.

Enjoy your medieval shithole.

" who did that you racist shithole? "

The article did, you illiterate dickweed.

"$250k medical bill"

That's not a thing that people elsewhere in the developed world even have to think of.

"just guessing"

Nor that.

I will now acknowledge the shameful return of Dickhat.

Here is an interactive shit map of San Fransico with little poop icons from all the reported human feces on the streets.

Ys, you dont live in so cal, you shouldn't call people racists who do live there and actually see how horrible the city has become. Some parts are still nice. Other parts are literally taken over by tent camps on the streets and no cop stops em.

If you somehow think there aren't extended stays and procedures that would rack up $250k in charges elsewhere in the world, or that people in Europe magically know the sum total of their charges right off the bat, lulz

To give my own anecdotal input, I've been to Seattle and Portland recently, and it was shocking to see the levels of homelessness there. Drugged out addicts, check. Tent cities, check. Squalid filth, check. It's seriously disgusting and impossible to ignore. I can only imagine was SF and LA are like.

Leftists really do run cities atrociously.

I like how the USA has an actual shit map where people can see where the poop are.

It must mean that there is someone who works as a poop spotter and marks it on the map. Maybe they have an app for that.

Look at that map though... there's so much poop that it looks like a fking mushroom cloud.

Dukhat channeling pure Iraqi information minister here. Presented with facts and observances, all he can do is keep muttering "there is no homeless problem outside" like a broken NPC.

I love it.

Rugian would be in a mental institution if we properly funded mental health.

I just hope he becomes invalid like Hot Rod and thus incapable of going on a shooting rampage soon.

It would still be a shithole if you kicked out the illegals. That's because a lot of homeless from within the US move to California for the weather.

It would be an interesting piece if they actually had any ideas on how to deal with it instead of crass politics to attack muh libruls and demagoguing about illegal immigration.

We could build the dumb wall and quadruple ICE funding and they'd still be here. The best way is to align economic incentives and have a guest-worker program like we had during Eisenhower. The reward of being legal has to be better than being illegal.

Of course, the right would still demagogue on it even with realistic solutions.
