Trump hasn't tweeted about West Coast wildfires since November, when he tweeted nonsense

3 min read

I live in Oregon. My state is burning. People are losing their homes and being forced to evacuate. I’m choking on smoke and God knows what else.

Where is Donald Trump?

Oh, that’s right. I live in a blue state. Never mind.

So in case you’ve never checked out the Trump Twitter archive, I can tell you from experience that it’s a great resource — one that I’ve used many times, including just now … to find this:

Yes, that’s the last time — as far as I can tell (feel free to check for yourself) — that Donald Trump tweeted about West Coast wildfires. And he used the opportunity to excoriate California Gov. Gavin Newsom with a barrage of bullshit.

Of course, since that time, he’s managed to call for Chuck Todd to be fired (at least three times), said that Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin (who verified key details in the LoserSucker-gate story) should be fired, said Joy Reid should be fired, wondered if Chris Cuomo would be fired, plugged his dangerous Mount Rushmore fireworks celebration, retweeted James Woods’ video about a police station that was “on fire” (looks to me like it was actually a wooden pallet that was burning, but let’s not split hairs) …

… said Fox News should fire its pollster, and on and on and on.

But when it comes to anything having to do with his actual job … crickets flambé.

I know Trump has no chance of winning Oregon — or California or Washington — so he obviously doesn’t give a shit about what happens to us. But could he at least pretend to care? 

It would be a start, anyway.

Good gourd, you won’t believe this. Two of Aldous J. Pennyfarthing’s books are now available for 99 cents apiece! Lasso copies of Dear Fcking Moron: 101 More Rude Letters to Donald Trump and Dear Prsident A**clown: 101 Letters to Donald Trump for this comically low price (later today the price goes up to $1.99). And, as always, you can get your copy of Dear F*cking Lunatic and preorder the final installment, Goodbye, Asshat.
