Rampant illegal immigration, homelessness, rodent infestation, and infectious disease are just a few of the many serious problems afflicting today's LA, according to reports. And in the eyes of Dr. Pinsky, the California mecca is now, in many ways, worse-off than many Third World countries because of it all.
"We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now," Dr. Pinsky stated frankly to Laura Ingraham during the segment.
"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," he further explained.
Dr. Pinsky's contentions come on the heels of disturbing reports about the spread of life-threatening illnesses like typhoid fever and bubonic plague, both of which are making a comeback in L.A. An L.A. police officer reportedly contracted typhoid fever recently, and bubonic plague, which killed tens of millions of people during the 14th century, is also "likely" spreading in L.A. as well, according to Dr. Pinsky.
"This is unbelievable," Dr. Pinsky says about the horrific conditions that plague L.A. in 2019.
"I can't believe I live in a city where this is not Third World. This is medieval. 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."

Despite having some of the highest tax rates in the country, Los Angeles is also crumbling at the infrastructure level. As we reported back in 2014, the writing was already on the wall for L.A. back then, with mainstream media reports explaining that:
"... from buckling sidewalks to potholed thoroughfares to storm drains that can't handle a little rain, the infrastructure that holds the second-largest U.S. city together is suffering from years of deferred maintenance."
Much of California – and much of the U.S. as a whole, for that matter – is in similar serious disrepair. San Francisco has become a giant toilet; Mississippi's roadways are collapsing; and let's not even talk about the bridges in Rhode Island.
One might try to exclusively blame Leftist politics for these failures, but let's face it: Both blue and red states are stricken with the types of political corruption that are causing this country to become worse than a Third World country – or as Dr. Pinsky puts it, we have too many politicians that are "disgustingly negligent," at best.
"[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," Dr. Pinsky went on to explain to Ingraham, speaking specifically in the context of L.A.
"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."
