California Fires: Does Trump Know What Causes Them? Hell, No!


                                           Good Day World!

Donny's on vacation and catching up on a lot of golf and "executive time" (euphemism about the time he spends tweeting, drinking Cokes and eating cheese burgers) this week.

I guess we know what that means...the mother of all twitter storms! While our Liar-In-Chief hides out at one of his golf courses to avoid the press, his little fingers are getting a work-out.

Instead of being supportive of the victims of California's raging wildfires, this is what the orange twit had to say:

A special tweet from America's leader yesterday:

"California wildfires are being magnified and made so much worse by the bad environmental laws which aren't allowing massive amount of readily available water to be properly utilized. It is being diverted into the Pacific Ocean. Must also tree clear to stop fire spreading!"

In what has to be one of the most brain-dead reasons ever given for California's deadly fires, Donny claimed that environmental laws were to blame. What laws is he talking about? The fires have nothing to do with river runoff! 

Experts Reject Trump Claim That Water Policies Hurt Firefighting

For Years, California State Governor, Jerry Brown, has been talking about California's "new normal" caused by factors like climate change, and several years of drought, high winds, and vegetation buildup.

In other words, the real reasons why Californians have been faced with increasingly deadly wildfires every year.

If you haven't been following Trump's feud with California since he came into office, suffice to say he's declared war on the state for resisting his attempts at forcing Californians to adopt weak environmental regulations designed to benefit corporations. That's just for starters.

Trump really doesn't like hearing Jerry Brown talk about climate change. As an uneducated conspiracy wonk, Trump is doing everything he can to gut the EPA's prime mission of protecting the environment.

The thought that the president of the United States would spend his free time attacking our environment, our criminal justice system, the legitimate Russian/Trump coordination investigation, and professional athletes like Lebron James and national football league players, is not only repulsive, its un-American.

This is what we get when Trump's handlers/enablers are out of the picture for a few days...unfiltered Trump. The rest of the time they fight a losing battle trying to advise the world's biggest egomaniac not to share all of his paranoid, conspiracy-laced, tweets every day.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
