      We tried god,didn’t work!! Can we now please try masks and social distancing

    • @Roberto krebbers 👈 followed by ‘ fascism ‘ Please!

    • @Roberto krebbers – You’re your own god apparently, living in a world with 7.7 billion other gods, and no means, scientific or otherwise, of establishing the immutable supremacy of any moral code.

      What is it exactly, that you’re indignant about?

      @Jay Larsen you are wrong ….I think the people who don’t wear masks (play) god ,by not wearing a mask they deside over life and death….and you can be smart but it is a effing disgrace that a country as mighty and powerful with the best equipment,best experts and the most money let people die …almost a 1000 people every day die of Corona and about 190k people died in total..and last about faith I was raised as a catholic but don’t go to church anymore ..people are using faith for oppression ,most people in the world die in the name of some god,and all the child abuse in the catholic maybe strange but I do pray but don’t go to church..and the fact I am my own god??, please explain..but thanks for your comment

  2. nothing from trump about these fires…nothing

  3. Brace yourself for Donald Dumpsterfire telling the West Coast it needs to do more “raking” of the forest floor.

      @Sean Breen I guess antifa is too busy setting themselves on fire. lol

    • @Prince of Prussia TRUMP:” YOU & CLIMATE CHANGE ARE HOAX”

      @Sandra Wade Actually, as a fact, almost all the fires were caused by accident / broken power lines caused by high winds and dry conditions. Seriously stop with the crazy nonsense. No one coordinated making 500 fires within a week, that’s stupid. They would have to live in that area and be okay with BURNING THEIR OWN HOUSE DOWN. Do you realise HOW STUPID you sound ?

      antifa fires

    • @perspicacity “Free healthcare is impossible under a capitalist system.” True! healthcare is never free, but a State-run system stops profiteering by insurance companies and for-profit hospitals.

  4. Thinking of you all from Australia…

    At least Canada is sending messages of comfort to west coast Americans devastated by wildfire, since our American president refuses to address even his voter base out here.

  6. Climate change is for real just wait until next year, there will be no California or Oregon.
    All of this is made by man, ignoring climate change for over 100 years
    And this is man’s reward

  7. Nothing but pain in my heart tears in my eyes how can people sleep when this is happening how can Trump say we are doing good we don’t have nothing to worry about when this is happening death all around us that man don’t care about any of us at all I’m praying for our planet and everyone on it 🙏

  8. Regulations are being scaled back by the big polluters during COVID.

  9. I’m in an Oregon hotel wondering if my home is gone. I’m a high-school teacher. We have been scrambling to get online school ready due to COVID. Now, because of teachers and students having to evacuate their homes and the air quality at danger levels, school has been postponed until Sept. 21. AND we have a human disaster in charge of the country spreading hatred and division. I overheard some ladies in the hotel lobby saying that the fires were started by Black Lives Matters and that in Texas they know how to take care of these things with guns. My colleague said today that it seems we are living level 7 in Jamanji. It is definitely surreal.

  10. Guess who controls all the B-52s, Ospreys and the entire aerial equipment under the Air force which could be used to fight the fires?

    Where the FCUK is the Head Cheerleader of the United States?
    Oh! I know what he’s doing. He’s doing the same thing he did with COVID-19. He doesn’t want to cause any panic to the people of California, Oregon and Washington. These are just tiny bonfires and with the autumn rain around the corner they’ll disappear… well, at least for the Pacific Northwest.

    This terrorist we have for a president needs to be thrown in prison for the rest of his life.

  12. god bless the people of the west coast. can you frigging believe it? oregon & washington burning, BUUT TRUMP SAID, “THERE’S NO CLIMATE CHANGE.”
    #WRONGWRONGWRONG end republicanism & let’s fix this

  13. “They didn’t support me in 2016 so I won’t help them.”

    • @Steve Soma What has Trump done besides letting local governments in California and Oregon fend for themselves?

    • He is supposed to go there but this is WEEKS of not saying anything publically. Not only does he not really care about these
      “Democrat states”, he does not care about the fact that LOTS of Republicans continue to live in those states.

    • @Karen Byrd
      And since the fires are in rural areas, it is probably overwhelmingly Republican. But they can’t help Trump in the electoral college, so they don’t exist for him.

    • generationofswine | September 12, 2020 at 8:42 PM | Reply

      That’s the reason he did nothing and continues to do nothing on Covid-19. He can’t figure out how to only help his base.

    • Donald Trump doesn’t realize his number one brown nose in Congress Devin Nunes represents a district that is on fire

    Fire 25 miles from me today, smoke filled air clogging my lungs, Trump and his base are the problem here, one of Trump’s base started the Medford Talant fire. Azalea Oregon.

  15. Whatching this from Germany I have no words for America as, I am so sorry for the people.

  16. What is 45’s problem with saying anything, or doing anything, to help with this disastrous fire situation in the West? Malignant Petulance.

    Can you imagine how bad this could get if climate change wasn’t a hoax?

      @Shaun Stark Why are you putting the word science in quotation marks? It doesn’t make sense.

      I don’t have a god. But, I do like science. The good thing about it is that it works whether you believe in it or not. In fact, you are using it to subscribe to YouTube and make comments.

    • @Magical Frijoles your logic sounds solid for a 12 year old, yet you’re missing the whole part where science is often wrong in its assumptions. Just because technology looks like magic to you doesnt mean you have to believe everything a “scientist” tells you.

    • Magical Frijoles | September 13, 2020 at 9:59 PM | Reply

      @Shaun Stark Well, you nailed it. I am not smart enough to understand technology. I sure hope my employer, who pays me six figures, doesn’t figure out that they are paying me to be a SME in IT and I have no idea what I am doing.

    • @Magical Frijoles I should have known you were a genius; with a name like magical frijoles, how could I have ever thought otherwise?

    • “Fake fires”.

  18. My heart is breaking for every person and animal affected by this absolute devastation. I am praying for you all. 😢💗🙏

    This is beyond tragic. Jesus. Whole towns just gone up in ash. Communities completely destroyed and cast to the wind. Horrible.

    • Jesus name shouldn’t be used in that manner sir.
      In Jesus name there is power snd even the demons tremble.
      There is salvation in His name.
      In my opinion I believe America is being judged by the sins of abortion, corruption, rebelling against God.
      Repent while there is time!
      Trust and believe in Jesus Christ. He died for both u and me.
      He rose the 3rd day defeating death and sin!

    • This is HILARIOUS!!!😂😂😂

      marisol rubio None of that happened. Quit believing in stupid fairy tales. You’re a grown up. Accept reality. There is no god.

      Anthony Bunch My man, you are wild. I just watched you drink a glass of Pine-Sol. Are you for real or are you just trolling?

  20. *This is what the world looks like as it is spiraling out of control. Buckle up.*
