Get off your orange ass and start acting like a president!

http://news.trust.org/item/20191030124630-rxtjo

ONE OF OUR STATES IS ON FIRE!!

The National Weather Service issued an "extreme red flag" warning for wildfires in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. ""I don't know if I've ever seen us use this warning," said forecaster Marc Chenard. "It's pretty bad."

Statewide, the weather service issued warnings of dangerous fire weather conditions covering more than 34,000 square miles (88,000 square km), encompassing some 21 million people. Scientists have linked an increase in frequency and intensity of wildfires to climate change.

The Santa Ana winds are a regional weather phenomenon that sends gusts westward off the desert out to the Southern California coast. They are forecast to reach sustained speeds of 50 to 70 miles per hour (80 to 110 km per hour) on Wednesday and Thursday, raising the risk of sparks and embers being whipped into fresh wildfires in unburned areas.

Los Angeles Fire Chief Ralph Terrazas said extremely high winds could also force the grounding of water-dropping helicopters, a vital component of the firefighting arsenal.

1. Maybe it's better if he just stays on the golf course

and doesn't pretend to be the president because he's not good at it. He'll just complain that California isn't raking the forests again.

2. This vindictive orange bastard doesn't care if California is burning.

In his warped mind they have it coming because they didn't vote for his kingdom. I still can't believe he hasn't addressed the fires in California. He never ceases to amaze me with his vindictiveness and childish behavior.

4. With all due respect to you, not him,

anything he would decide to do would just make it worse. In his little pea brain he would think that any assistance from him would give his maggots the idea that he supports global warming science, so he would probably hire people to drive up and down the highway throwing out lighted cigarettes.

6. He can't, he doesn't know how

and furthermore, he doesn't want to.
