Will anybody join me in a rain dance for a good cause? California needs the rain desperately and it’s the only sure fire way to keep Donald Trump from coming here. Trump announced Thursday that he’s planning to come to California this weekend and people here are either groaning or laughing. The latest fires are the third set to have occurred since Trump took office. He hasn’t visited before and we don’t need him now. He’s been here once since taking office to look at prototypes for his effing wall. The only reason he wants to come here is because the Camp Fire is the deadliest in the state’s history and he and Wildfire Barbie want to come and mouth platitudes and do a photo op in windbreakers and baseball caps. We don’t need bad theater here, we’ve got enough real drama, thank you.
Seriously, what’s he going to do, same as he did in North Carolina, say “Hi, everybody, how’s your house?” California has had “to fight not only killer fires but also combustible rhetoric from the Oval Office,” as the Washington Post put it, from this jerk who threatens to withdraw federal aid and admonishes our officials to “Get Smart!”
We don’t want him here

Haven't they suffered enough? And this is not snark. There's not a thing he could possibly do. He's proven that he's incapable of understanding what he observes, so couldn't possibly determine the needs. And he'll just get in the way of serious responders.

The Trump that threatened to cut fire prevention funds while homes were burning to the ground? That Trump?

Is he going to toss out bundles of kindling?

So I take it some 1%er smelled smoke?
— Anthony W. Walker (@awwalk) November 15, 2018
Yes in fact we've been smelling a lot of it and 99% of us 1%ers don't want him here.

Is it possible he doesn't realize how much we hate him here? The reception isn't going to be warm

Oh, they'll find the five people in California who actually like him and pay them to cheer. The rest of you won't be allowed to get near Joffrey the Orange.

They should fly him up above the remaining hotspots and release him in a spray of orange. You know, cuz he and he alone can fix it.

Doesn't he know we don't want him here? Where is that baby trump ballon? If it's not here, we need to get it back in time to greet our toddler-in-chief.
I have a feeling there's going to be some massive protests if he has the nerve to show his orange face here

One disaster after another.

We don’t need him to tell us that the “fires are some of the hottest he has seen, from the standpoint of fire.” Please. If there is anybody with class in the entire administration, don’t add insult to injury. Keep the Tangerine Trainwreck away from the already traumatized. Or, if he must come, let him stay in Fresno with Devin Nunes.
