There's a running joke about the Trump Administration on social media. It is a narrative about people wondering if World War III or some catastrophic event happened as they slept.

Trump has had a historically apathetic relationship with the state of California, only intervening when Californians do something he doesn’t like. On everything from immigration to education, Trump seems contrary to Californian values. Only when it’s something that piques his interest, like a...
