    Default How much longer do we have to put up with this asshole?

    CA should stop sending tax money to the federal government.....let's see what happens then.

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he has ordered the Federal Emergency Management Agency to cut off wildfire relief aid for fire-scorched California until state officials “get their act together” and do a better job of managing forests. The bizarre proclamation furthers the administration’s attempt to pin the devastation on environmentalists while ignoring the clear impact climate change is having on extreme fires out west.

    “Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forrest (sic) fires that, with proper Forrest (sic) Management, would never happen,” he wrote in a since-deleted post to Twitter. “Unless they get their act together, which is unlikely, I have ordered FEMA to send no more money. It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money!” There was no further information on the veracity of Trump’s Twitter claim. The White House and FEMA did not immediately respond to requests for comment Wednesday. FEMA is also impacted by the ongoing partial government shutdown and, as Washington Post reporter Damian Paletta highlighted, doesn’t have money to send to the state. The announcement comes as California reels from one of its worst wildfire seasons on record. The Mendocino Complex fire, the largest wildfire in the state’s recorded history, burned more than 450,000 acres north of Santa Rosa in July. November’s Camp fire ― the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California’s history — engulfed more than 153,000 acres, destroyed nearly 19,000 structures and killed at least 86 people.

    Trump has blamed the state’s devastating infernos on everything from a lack of raking to a nonexistent water shortage resulting from “bad environmental laws.” And the administration has used the disasters to push partisan policy, connecting the blazes to a longstanding fight between farmers and environmentalists over water resources.

    He's digging his own hole. Hope Mueller will help him (and us) out.

    I'm pretty sure most of the wildfires were in rural, more conservative parts of the state, occupied by people that tend to vote Republican and presumably supported Trump.

    I doubt he goes to prison or jail......This country provides cover for his type.

    Most we can hope for is people rising up and stop accepting this behavior.

    Some parts yea, but a lot of them up north are on federal land. So. Cal fires are generally in populated areas in mostly "liberal" areas.

    In some ways, the country is learning a very valuable lesson from the Trump presidency. Elections do have consequences and those who couldn't be bothered to even get out and vote, own part of this disaster as well.

    BULLSHIT. 3 million more people voted for someone else.

    ELECTIONS ARE RIGGED..... have been since they enacted the electorial college.

    There has never been a fair election in this country EVER! How can elections be fair when 1/4 of the population can't even vote?

    1 person 1 vote.

    It's the only fair election this country will have.

    Boy, did Trump kick Hillary's ass. I wonder why Hillary didn't just go out and get those 270 votes that she needed for a win? Was she really too dumb to know that she needed those 270 votes?
