In a recent interview, California’s Democratic governor, Gavin Newsom, reportedly expressed concern about his son’s interest in right-leaning figures such as Joe Rogan, Andrew Tate, and Jordan Peterson.
In an interview with Bloomberg that was published on September 7, Newsom discussed AI and its implications for government.
Hunter, the eldest child of Newsom, is 12 years old.
During the interview, the publication asked Newsom if he had discussed potential AI-related issues with his children.
“I had a very serious conversation with my oldest daughter about the chatbots on Snap,” Newsom said.
“I really worry about these micro-cults that my kids are in. I say micro-cults because I don’t know if there’s a better way to describe it.

Joe Rogan is the host of the well-known interview podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Andrew Tate, a masculinity influencer and former professional kickboxer, is accused of rape and human trafficking in Romania, and Jordan Peterson is a clinical psychologist and the author of “12 Rules For Life.”
