  1. Future Trump comment.’’ these radical leftist starting fires to make me look bad“…

      @Ed Diggs how is domestic terrorism committed by Trump supporters funny?

    • @Lurking Grue ugh… you can look up the arrest records and charges…
      don’t fall into the rhetoric.

    • Lucifers minions of democratic scum lit the fires

    • @John Christopher no confusion here. I went ahead and looked up the word terrorist for you since they didn’t include it in your indoctrination course materials. Terrorist- a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims. This is as good a summation of BLM and ANTIFA as can be expected. I’m not sure what they are giving you to be so ignorant, but it’s not worth it.

    • And antifa vampires who molest chihuahuas have a special machine made from the bones and blood of republican children that creates hurricanes. Q-anon said it so it must be true.

  2. Climate is taking the moisture out of the forest, that in a nutshell is the problem

  3. Capitalism is destroying this planet

  4. Thank goodness somebody finally addressing the President on national T.V. asking the President for help not just help for now but help for in the future to combat climate changes that are brought on through bad Leadership and a ignoring ear from a President who says don’t worry it will get colder I mean really WTF. Vote Biden it’s time to start making changes what do we have to do loose the whole west coast. Prays to the Californians.

  5. Is Oregon getting any federal assistance to fight the fires or is the fact they are a blue state the assistance is slow in coming.

  6. Trump says that he is the chosen one, but didn’t share that it was Satan who chose him.

  7. Ty Senator Markey…appreciate all you are doing for our state of Oregon. It’s a hard time.

  8. *The only honest thing Trump has done, is that he has inadvertently highlighted the True Hidden Nature of this GOP! **#NastyBrokenGOP** 🤢🤮*

    Bring back the C.C.C., Civilian Conservation Corps. Nationwide A.S.A.P.. This is why. 🔥🔥🔥🌀🌀🌀🌱🌱🌱🌎🌍🌏🙏

    • Great idea. California has the California Conservation Corps and has several centers throughout the state, a few of which are fire centers that house fire crews. One of them is in Magalia, just north of the town of Paradise. They do great work. I know several other states have them as well.

    • It should be renamed to Civilian Conservation Party (CCP).

    This is just like Bush and stem cell research. he virtually blocked it all, so many many people suffer from illnesses that could now be cured. Republicans 🤮🤮🤮🤮

  14. ‘How can Trump claim he’ll keep us safe as president when he hasn’t kept us safe as president?’

    “As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.” ― H.L. Mencken

  16. Obama would have taken part of that ride with you. I’ve never seen Trump roll his sleeves up.

  17. Best Senator the United States has ever had. We love you Jeff.

  18. I refer folks who care to Jane Fonda’s Fire Drill Fridays which sensibly addresses this issue and more. They need your help.

  19. Senator Jeff Merkley is a good man who knows what he’s talking about. We need more people like him in Washington.

    • He’s my Senator. He will always have my support! I would call him the hardest working man in Washington (dc), except he’s always busy doing town halls in every corner of Oregon, listening to the people.

    • @josh grant He’s my senator too and Jeff Merkley is one of the best for sure. He does do town halls to ask the people what they need or to hear and actually listen to their questions and concerns, Jeff is okay by me!

    • @james kenyon Do you get his emails? I’ve gotten a response every time I send him one, from his staff maybe but I know the word is getting thru. America could use a President like Merkley, but I would be jealous to lose him.

  20. Trump was gonna bring a rake to CA but then forgot he needs it for his hair.
