What is wrong with this man!

    Trump on twitter,
    "There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor,” Trump tweeted Saturday morning. “Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”

    Absolutely no sympathy shown for the lives lost, the people made homeless and those fighting the fires.

    The news isn't about him, so he hates it.

    He's also just cancelled his visit to an American war cemetery in France about 55 miles away from where he is in Paris, apparently because of bad weather. He's sending someone in his place apparently.

    If my hair was secured with wallpapeper paste, I'd avoid the rain too.

    The people of California don't vote for him so as there is no election for a couple of years now - he doesn't care.

    ...and these current fires are NOT forest fires -they are wild fires - he doesn't even know the difference.

    I'm guessing he has no real estate investments in Malibu then?

    Oooh, look which way California voted last week:

    Shaw? Don't quote that Stalin-sucking fool to me.

    There's more than just a touch of the Marie Antoinette's about him.

    Why the surprise? That's the way it's been for 25 years since the population shift.

    I've been to the area around Malibu Canyon where one of the fires is now.

    It's lovely - such a shame.

    I've been to this area a few time as I have relatives Canoga Park/Agoura Hills areas. The first time I went, almost 40 years ago, the problem was heavy rains and mud slides which closed the canyons. They were still closed in the summer.
    Also have relatives up in the Sacramento area.

    Beautiful areas.

    So much of America is stunningly beautiful - the landscape, that is.

    He might not be wrong this time. As I understand it, there are different ways of managing forests, both plantations and natural forests, and some have higher fire risk than others; also some have greater appeal to Joe Public than others.

    When you think of our beautiful, beautiful world - and California must be one of the most beautiful places, apart from Yorkshire that is - you could break your heart when you see the dreadful pictures on our tv screens. How on earth that horrible man can just look for grounds to blame people I just don't know. Why people voted him in as president is beyond most people - and to insult people by not going to the American war cemetery is despicable beyond words.

    He might or might not be correct about mismanagement of forests. I have no idea.

    But withdrawing money isn't going to help. The man is the "American Idiot".
