Rake-stepping for speed and accuracy


“Finnish President Sauli Niinisto said in an interview published Sunday in the Ilta-Sanomat newspaper that he spoke briefly with Trump about forest management on Nov. 11, when they both were in Paris for Armistice Day events.

“Niinisto said their conversation focused on the California wildfires and the surveillance system Finland uses to monitor forests for fires. He remembered telling Trump, “We take care of our forests,” but couldn’t recall raking coming up.

“The U.S. leader’s comment generated amusement on social media in Finland, which manages its vast forests with scientific seriousness.

“Forests cover more than 70% of Finland. The Nordic country with a population of 5.5 million is home to some of the world’s biggest paper and pulp companies.”

    Replace the letter “k” with a “p”, and you’ll understand what Hair Furor has planned for the Nat’l. Forests in California.

    Quick question. Why are the houses burning if they rake their lawns?

    Another day, another way Idiot in Chief has proved to be the single most “laughing stock” of the entire world. He deserves some sort of a Medal. He has broken a record.

    Herr Twitler is actually getting positive news coverage today in the MSM despite his astoundingly stupid statements about the California fires. This shows that NO EFFORT should have been put into posing with him for the cameras and giving his “visit” any kind of the credibility normally due to a real president. As we might have guessed, the MSM has concluded that Jerry Brown saying that better forest management is essential to dealing with fire threats from climate change validates Trump’s point of view without ever mentioning Trump’s crackpot ideas on climate change or his ridiculous forest raking notions. In other words, Brown’s sober, fact-based assessment becomes a win for Trump, while Trump’s frothing insanity doesn’t matter at all.
