Trump says to halt aid to California wildfire victims, but law says he can't

The stupidity of Trump never ceases to amaze me.  In trying to punish democratic California, he ends up hurting his own constituents....

 

[The fire that devastated Paradise hit one of the last remaining Republican bastions in the state, and Trump's tweet came as a surprise to the party's representatives.]

Don't be amazed. Expect it.

My rule of thumb is always expect "trump" to get worse and you'll never be disappointed. 

Impossible to respect this hot mess as a legitimate president (or his fans who have no excuse by now to not get what a disaster he is).

Typical Forrest Trump.

 

The Federal Government owns and manages - or mismanages, as the case may be, more than half of California's forests.

 

Of the approximately 33 million acres of forest in California, federal agencies (including the USDA Forest Service and USDI Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service) own and manage 19 million acres (57%).

 

State and local agencies including CalFire, local open space, park and water districts and land trusts own another 3%. 40% of California's forestland is owned by families, Native American tribes, or companies. Industrial timber companies own 5 million acres (14%). 9 million acres are owned by individuals  with nearly 90% of these owners having less than 50 acres of forest land.

You'd think by now that there is nothing Trump can say to shock Republican lawmakers.

The fact that it has shows really how far Republican lawmakers have degenerated into Trump's abyss of abnormalcy.

Exactly, and now "trump" is seriously threatening to go full on DICTATOR with his fake national emergency gambit to try to build his great ego branding wall, and so far it appears the republicans are so corrupted that they are going to go along with that. 

Look, I knew when he got elected that he was going to very, very bad and I was accused of hyperbole. He's turned out to be even much worse than my expectations and he's not nearly done yet.

The fact that federal laws and/or court rulings don't permit something has never been any kind of impediment to Trump and his tweet-storms. He's the worst combination of ignorant, arrogant and dangerous -- a would-be American dictator with no respect for the laws of the land.

 

That's why he seems to admire Putin and his ilk.

Republicans in the Senate are corrupted in the sense that they know their election survival depends on supporting Trump, so they stay silent or avoid challenging him (biting their lips), when under a normal Republican President, the better angels of their nature would never be tested like this, so we would never know.

 

So, I would say they are yellow-bellied, spineless, yes, but as far as corrupt, not as much unless you consider their using his term to advance their agenda and keep Republicans in power.

Trump creates uncertainty among people. Uncertainty creates fear. Fear creates anger. Anger creates division between people, who would normally live happily together. 

 

I wonder if this is what Trump wants.

I think he wants whatever he wants, and doesn't care how he gets it-- whether there's actual deliberate manipulation involved, or if he simply doesn't think, runs his mouth about "but I wanna do this and I think we should do that and hang what anyone else thinks/feels!" and fear/anger/division happens to be the result, I don't know.

Yes. Yes, yes - and yes again.
