Trump Just Claimed That Trees in California ‘Explode’ While Trees in Europe Don’t and Everyone is Confused

California better get a grip on its exploding trees.

Before we go into the latest moronic take by the guy who inexplicably leads the federal government, we should say that it is true that trees can get so dry and fires get so hot that an approaching fire can cause trees to “seem” to explode with the heat. But Trump believes that exploding trees start fires. This is, of course, insane, as everyone knows, exploding fireworks at gender-reveal parties explode and start fires.

Trump told the media today that California’s exploding trees are a problem and that European “forest nations” don’t have this problem because they “manage their forests.” The fact that the Euro-forests he’s likely referencing are quite near the arctic circle, get drenched in rain and snow much of the year, must not factor into Trump’s analysis.

Forest management is absolutely critical to fire suppression. Trump says he’s going to “talk to the states” in the west about doing a better job of forest management because he’s been saying it for three years, as if he solved a Rubic’s cube. Trump also either isn’t aware of, or doesn’t want his supporters to know of, the fact that most of these fires are in National Forests which are managed by the National Forest Service, which is a part of the Department of Agriculture which … is under his authority. If he knows so much about forest management why isn’t he yelling at his own people? Because it’s a political game.

Yeah, all those leaves are due to climate change and poor forest management that is supposed to be done by the Forest Service (but mostly climate change), and he sure doesn’t want to talk about either of those issues.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
