Lil’ Schiff Tries To Pin California Wildfires On Trump… Steps On A MASSIVE Reality Rake

Ashley (Kimber)

Earlier this week, Trump addressed the raging California wildfires in a tweet that blamed “bad environmental laws” for the problem.

He’s absolutely right – but that didn’t stop INSUFFERABLE lil’ Schiff from puffing his chest out and dropping this little nugget:

Schiiiiff… who said ANYTHING about “clear cutting” forests? We NEED to be clearing out dead trees, or else forests turn into inevitable DEATH TRAPS.

I know you want to make Trump out to be ENVIRONMENTAL SATAN and all.. but this is just pathetic.

The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel checked him… HARD.

According to the report:

“The USDA Forest Service today announced that an additional 27 million trees, mostly conifers, died throughout California since November 2016, bringing the total number of trees that have died due to drought and bark beetles to a historic 129 million on 8.9 million acres,” a news release from December 2017 read.

“The dead trees continue to pose a hazard to people and critical infrastructure, mostly centered in the central and southern Sierra Nevada region of the state,” the statement read.

Randy Moore of the USDA Forest Service was quoted in the news release saying the “USDAForest Service will continue to focus on mitigating hazard trees and thinning overly dense forests so they are healthier and better able to survive stressors like this in the future.”

So yes – California’s pseudo-environmental BULL SH*T has burned the state down. Good for you, libs. You’re LITERALLY killing it.

The responses are BRUTAL:

Because you don’t have to be “right” about anything to be elected into office in California… in fact, you just have to be LEFT.

Now Schiff, why don’t you use the MASSIVE RAKE you just stepped on to clear out some of that kindling?
