On Saturday, while speaking in front of cameras and microphones, idiot in chief Donald Trump explained that the California Wildfires that have killed dozens, and will likely take hundreds of people’s lives, could be resolved with a little housekeeping.

Finnish President Sauli Niinistö said…wha?

Niinistö told the Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat, a CNN affiliate, that the subject of raking was never brought up in his conversations with Trump. He said that they did discuss the California wildfires when they met, and that he told Trump “we take care of our forests.”

The Finnish President told the newspaper that he intended to convey that although Finland is covered by forests, the nation has a good monitoring system which has helped to prevent catastrophic wildfires. He added that he only sees raking in his own yard, and surmised that raking perhaps came to Trump’s mind after he saw firefighters raking some of the burned areas in California.

Since then, the #MakeAmericaRakeAgain, and other variations have taken off. I live out in California and our air quality has meant I have two kids bouncing off the walls while I write this. However, one of the nice things the internet can do is make me smile at the tragic stupidity of our feckless, racist leader.

Go below the fold and enjoy

The classic.

Hipster humor.

The never-ending irony.

The gothic.

A picture that will say one billion words when done.

Some more family tree raking.

And finally, the requisite Simpsons tweets.
