As you’ve undoubtedly heard, Trump has said something stupid and factually incorrect. What did he say this time? “There is no drought” in California.
Speaking as a San Francisco native who has seen so much dry grass she now hates the color yellow, I’m going to have to disagree with that one. California is most certainly in a drought. I’m reminded of that every time I go to the Sierras (10/10 would recommend) and see the cracked ground and dried up lakes and reservoirs.
But there’s something else Trump said that was of note: he said he’d “open up the water” in California. Now, what he meant was that he was going to divert more water from the Sacramento River and give that to the farmers in the Central Valley (depriving the nearly extinct Delta smelt of much needed water).
But it sounds like he thinks he’s God, and can control the weather. When he says he’ll “open up the water” in California, it sounds like he’s going to make it rain over California. So I leave you with one last visions: imagine Trump doing a rain dance.
