No demographic appears safe from President Joe Biden’s ability to “f*ck things up,” to paraphrase a quote attributed to his onetime boss former President Barack Obama. Reports indicate loses among Hispanic voters, black voters and potentially with even union members. And now San Francisco is seeing some love lost as Allison Huynh, fundraiser and creator of robotics and AI systems company Willow Garage, expressed her plans to back former President Donald Trump come November.

Appearing on Fox News’ “Jesse Watters Primetime” Wednesday, Huynh explained, “Like any divorce, there’s not just one thing, there’s a series of things that led up to it.”

“The [Democrats] were policing the wrong things. The things that we need to police are violent criminals that are scattered throughout the streets of San Francisco, people defecating, shooting up heroin in front of me and my kids, and allowing criminals to go in and steal from our grocery stores, shutting down grocery stores,” she detailed, painting a picture of the oft-reported societal damage in the City by the Bay were soft-on-crime policies had reigned.

“I love to cook, and when I wake up in the morning, there’s no grocery stores to go to,” Huynh lamented.

As Watters brought up denials of the conditions in the Bay Area and other blue cities, she insisted, “Well, you have to look at the facts and the reality. When you walk the streets of San Francisco, I have three young children and when we go to the theater district…we have to step over homeless people shooting crack. And anyone can come to San Francisco, and they can see the same thing.”

“I love my Peking duck, but I’m afraid to go to Chinatown because of the violent crimes against Asians there,” the mom continued. “Am I being delusional? I don’t think so.”

Previously, the entrepreneur had detailed to the New York Post that she and her then-husband, Google programmer Scott Hassan, had personally been responsible for bringing in millions of dollars for then-Illinois Sen. Obama’s candidacy in 2008.

“My role was to bring in Silicon Vally people for the $50,000- and $100,000-per-plate dinners,” she’d explained. “[We] brought in [Google co-founders] Sergey [Brin], Larry [Page] and Eric [Schmidt]. Obama was a hopeful candidate who was outside the system.”

Her enthusiasm had even led her to pay over $1 million for Shepard Fairey’s canvas “Hope” piece that became a symbol of Obama’s campaign, which she has since decided to auction off as well as a chair that once belonged to President John F. Kennedy. “They don’t have much meaning for me right now.”

Huynh recounted to the newspaper that she had already attended a fundraiser for Trump at his Palm Beach, Florida resort home Mar-a-Lago and said, “I was surprised when I met Donald Trump.”

“He was light and funny and intelligent. The people there were down-to-earth,” she went on and expressed, “I am happy with how knowledgeable Trump is about what is going on with the country and the economy. He had the information. He is all there with the things that matter: education — his kids are well-educated — fighting crime, immigration and business.”
