The LA Times reports that people in California, and especially firefighters, are angry at Donald Trump’s stunning display of both stupidity and insensitivity in response to the deadly fires raging through their state.
While a quarter of a million people flee their homes to save their lives, while firefighters risk their lives to protect people and property, while the city of Paradise, California lies in ruins, Putin’s bitch had this to say on twitter:
There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. 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!

The Pasadena Firefighters Association said on twitter:
“The fires in So. Cal are urban interface fires and have NOTHING to do with forest management. Come to SoCal and learn the facts & help the victims”
Perhaps the most salient comment was from California Professional Firefighters President Brian Rice:
The president’s message attacking California and threatening to withhold aid to the victims of the cataclysmic fires is ill-informed, ill-timed and demeaning to those who are suffering as well as the men and women on the front lines.
At this moment, thousands of our brother and sister firefighters are putting their lives on the line to protect the lives and property of thousands. Some of them are doing so even as their own homes lay in ruins. In my view, this shameful attack on California is an attack on all our courageous men and women on the front lines.
At least now there’s no denying that the “@realDonaldTrump” is not a worthy President, he’s a pompous ass.
In other news, Trump cancelled a memorial for World War I during his trip to France — because it was raining.
Meanwhile, Canadian prime minister Trudeau not only spoke at a memorial in France, he cast aside his umbrella, noting that for the soldiers who fought that war, it wasn’t rain, it was bullets.
While Trudeau showed how a leader behaves like a class act, Putin’s bitch showed how a pathetic excuse for a leader shows no class at all.
