California Professional Firefighters President Brian K. Rice had a great response, I thought, but since Trump's generated outrage and Rice's didn't, Trump's was probably 10,000 times as viral.
The president’s assertion that California’s forest management policies are to blame for catastrophic wildfire is dangerously wrong. Wildfires are sparked and spread not only in forested areas but in populated areas and open fields fueled by parched vegetation, high winds, low humidity and geography. Moreover, nearly 60 percent of California forests are under federal management, and another third under private control. It is the federal government that has chosen to divert resources away from forest management, not California.
