Trump has gotten really good at shoving his foot so far down his throat that he's digesting his toenails, but in light of the widespread forest fires in California, he's reached an entirely new low, just when you think he can't get lower!
Over 1,300 people are missing and 76 are dead, but that didn't stop Trump from saying simply "raking" will prevent further blazes.
Trump Tours Ravaged Town Of Paradise After Deadly Camp Fire youtu.be
"You've got to take care of the floors. You know the floors of the forest, very important," he inexplicably touted as he toured the destroyed city of Paradise, CA.
"I was with the president of Finland and he said, 'We have a much different —we're a forest nation.' He called it a forest nation, and they spent a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things. And they don't have any problem. And when they do, it's a very small problem."
Aside from the fact that Finland and California don't remotely have the same climate whatsoever, this seems to once again be Trump's way to completely refuse accountability and action on behalf of the Federal government.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, "more than half the forested land in California is under federal control, essentially [Trump]'s jurisdiction."
"Climate change is drying out our landscape. That's not forest management. That's managing your safe zones around a city," LeRoy Westerling, a climate and fire scientist at the University Of California, Merced, said. "He's going after California because Californians don't vote for him."
