Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Neil Young lost his home to the recent California wildfires, and like many of the rest of us, he’s now lost his mind over Donald Trump’s response, which involved (of course) blaming the victims.
On his website, Young blasted Trump as “unfit” and a “so-called president.”
“California is vulnerable – not because of poor forest management as DT (our so-called president) would have us think. We are vulnerable because of climate change; the extreme weather events and our extended drought is part of it. Imagine a leader who defies science, saying these solutions shouldn’t be part of his decision-making on our behalf. Imagine a leader who cares more for his own, convenient option than he does for the people he leads. Imagine an unfit leader. Now imagine a fit one.”
Way to pull punches, Neil. Maybe you need to write a song about it.
Young also wrote, “It really is time for a reckoning with this unfit leader. Maybe our new Congress can help. I sure hope so.”
Oh, yeah, we all do. You might even say we’re helplessly hoping.
