Trump Just Repeatedly Called Fire-Ravaged California Town ‘Pleasure’ Instead Of Paradise

Donald Trump traveled to California on Saturday to inspect for himself the devastating effects of the fires that have ripped through several parts of the state.

At last count, more than 70 people have been killed and 1000 are missing in the Camp Fire that blazed through Paradise, north of San Francisco — while far to the south, parts of Malibu have also been devastated.

Trump visited Paradise to check out the damage for himself.

Unfortunately, he referred to the town as “Pleasure” — twice — before locals had to correct him.

“What we saw at Pleasure, what a name right,” Trump told reporters while standing in front of some charred trees in California next to California governor Jerry Brown.

Unfortunately, again, that is not the name at all.

Brown, who had been staring at the ground, instantly looked up — a confused look on his face — as the president got the name of the area badly incorrect.

“What we just saw, we just left Pleasure,” Trump said again, before several others standing alongside him corrected him, loudly saying ‘Paradise’.

Trump continued, unembarrassed and undeterred.

“Well Paradise, what we saw at Paradise is just not acceptable,” he said.

Trump has been criticized for his rhetoric around the fires, including an angry tweet during the early days of the destruction that lay blame for the fire at the feet of local authorities.

It wasn’t until five tweets later, more than 12 hours after that initial angry screed, that he posted a more supportive message to his Twitter.

Twitter was not impressed:
