“You gotta take care of the floors. You know the floors of the forest, very important…”

Trump raking the forest floor

The leader of Finland denied on Sunday that he’d ever told President Donald Trump that the small Nordic nation relies upon “raking” its forests to prevent wildfires — even though Trump promoted the dubious conservation method during a visit to flame-ravaged California over the weekend. ~Quint Forgey, Politico

It turns out the leader of Finland never said anything about “raking the forest floor,” but Trump’s comments do reveal new levels of ignorance, and it is difficult to determine if he says stupid stuff strategically to distract us or if he is just terribly uninformed or unable to look things up.

If our president suffered a severe stroke or mental breakdown, would we know? – Kindly Curmudgeon
