"Beck on Tuesday shared the “top ten cities” that he believes will “melt down when trouble comes.” “I want to give you the top ten or 15 cities that I think are going to melt down,” he said on his radio program. “These are the cities that you do not want to live anywhere around as things get worse and worse.” “Number 15 is surprise, surprise, St. Louis,” Began began. “Number 14 is Washington, D.C. Coming in at number 13 with a bullet is Las Vegas. Milwaukee is next, [then] Los Angeles, Boston, Detroit.” “Number seven is Columbus, Ohio. Number six, sorry to break it to you, St. Petersburg, Florida. Number five, Phoenix. Number four, Denver. Number three, Seattle. Number two, San Francisco.” And Beck said the “number one city in America to avoid like the plague” when trouble strikes is Portland, Oregon."
