We’ve already had a loser tweet from Trevor Noah of “The Daily Show,” but this is better. As Twitchy reported earlier, California is set to spend $500 million this year clearing 33 million acres of forests to prevent wildfires. As with so many things, President Trump was right at the time, but it was all a joke to late-night TV writers. Here’s a flashback to CBS’s James Corden ridiculing Trump for suggesting that California rake its forest beds. Of course, the audience laughs, because they’re trained seals.
“Now, California is putting Trump's plan into practice statewide as groups of 12-person crews set about a $500 million effort to thin the state's forests with controlled burns and sweeping the forest floors of pines, redwoods and firs…” https://t.co/xHCocBVJhe pic.twitter.com/i7T5LbbAcB

They really need to start learning how things work before they insult and make themselves look stupid 6 months later on the regular. pic.twitter.com/BLcJxafpt9

And journalists and late-night comics ridiculed him for all of it just because he was Trump.
‘Better late than never’: Looks like Calif. officials are finally taking Trump’s advice on forest management https://t.co/pc8WuNSov0
