Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forrest fires that, with proper Forrest Management, would never happen. Unless they get their act together, which is unlikely, I have ordered FEMA to send no more money. It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money!

Or maybe he means 'Forrest Trump'? :smoking:

I read an article (WAPO?) where they talked to a mixed bag of laid off federal employees, one of which was a firefighter. He/she said that what they'd normally be doing right now would be raking clearing the underbrush and stuff so there's less fuel during fire season.

So I’m wondering how many lawsuits will be filed before the weekend over him pulling FEMA money.

I think that's correct. Standing would be fairly simple if someone is denied funding because FEMA has been directed to not release funds; it will be much more complicated (at a minimum) with only the tweet.

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

Cryin Chuck told his favorite lie when he used his standard sound bite that I “slammed the table & walked out of the room. He had a temper tantrum.” Because I knew he would say that, and after Nancy said no to proper Border Security, I politely said bye-bye and left, no slamming!

There is GREAT unity with the Republicans in the House and Senate, despite the Fake News Media working in overdrive to make the story look otherwise. The Opposition Party & the Dems know we must have Strong Border Security, but don’t want to give “Trump” another one of many wins!

“Great support for Border Security and the Wall.” @foxandfriends Even greater than anyone would know! “Presidents supporters do not want him to cave.” @SteveDoocy I won’t!

Getting ready to leave for the Great State of Texas! #MAGA

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
"Because I knew he would say that"
?? It took him all evening and night to think-up that snappy comeback? :rotflmao:

Well, his lack of class with the name calling and tantrums grows by the day. I'm almost afraid to see how bad it gets by the time he's forced to leave the White House in 2021. Nuke launch on the way out the door?

A reminder that he calls him Cryin Chuck because Schumer once teared up while describing how his family was killed in the Holocaust.

Because of the Democrats intransigence on Border Security and the great importance of Safety for our Nation, I am respectfully cancelling my very important trip to Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum. My warmest regards and apologies to the @WEF!

Holy shite! I had no idea!
In my revenge fantasy:

We send Kathy Griffin out to talk, vulgarly as only she can, about how his grandpa owned a hooer house and wasn’t allowed back into Germany after his bone spurs made him run away to avoid mandatory military service, his daddy wouldn’t rent to blacks, how ugly and scary his mama was - was she an actual Nazi or just look like one - no wonder trump is such a baby, his parents never let him grow up.

The otential material is infinite.😄

Also, too, news voices should remind us of why trump gave Schumer that nickname at every opportunity.

I don't think he was well received there last year, so I doubt he really cares.

I bet the local hotels had to be paid well in advance. The US delegation was said to be some 1500 heads, now a few less. So you save the cost of AF1 to Europe and back. Some Secret Service staffers will also miss some holidays in the mountain snow.
