After Trashtalking Trump for a Month, California Officials Now Begging for His Help

Nothing like an infrastructure disaster to snap people back to reality. Ever since President Trump was inaugurated he’s been taunted nonstop by California’s governor and senators. Case in point:


Oh, now look who they want help from:

Gov. Jerry Brown asked the Trump administration for a federal disaster declaration for the emergency at Oroville Dam on Monday evening, citing the impending arrival of more storms and the potential need to resort again to the dam’s emergency spillway, which has been severely eroded.

The “incident is of such severity and magnitude that continued effective response is beyond the capabilities of the state and affected local governments,” Brown said in asking for direct federal assistance for 10,000 evacuated residents of Butte, Sutter and Yuba counties who he said require assistance.

Brown held out the prospect in his letter that the state would ask for further assistance once investigators determine the extent of the damage.

Uh, Jerry, perhaps you shouldn’t have spent billions on a train nobody wants, not to mention billions on illegal aliens:



So you folks still want to secede, or is that coming after you get bailed out for neglecting your infrastructure?

Weird, but I no linger see Kamala Harris talking smack to Trump:

On Monday, California Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, both Democrats, wrote a joint letter to Trump asking for quick approval of the governor’s disaster aid request.


How’s that resistance going, Sen. Harris? Maybe Trump’s resisting paying attention to you.

As California waited Monday night to see if President Donald Trump would grant Gov. Jerry Brown’s request for emergency funding for 10,000 evacuees who lived in the shadow of the Oroville Dam, FEMA began preparing for the worse.

The federal disaster-management agency’s Region 9, which oversees California and other Western states, has mobilized a 24-hour task force to coordinate its response with state and local agencies, said Mary Simms, a spokeswoman.

Though about 188,000 people were displaced by the evacuation orders, Brown’s letter to Trump asks to prioritize those who need help most.

Dozens of federal aid workers were dispatched to the network of makeshift shelters where the nearly 200,000 evacuated people, many of whom lived in Butte County, were spending their nights, waiting for word on when they could return home.

Regardless of whether Trump grants California the emergency status necessary for what Brown is seeking, FEMA will play a crucial role in how aid is distributed.

Perhaps after federal assistance arrives these clowns will change their tune. Perhaps Hollywood and the entertainment industry can hold fundraisers to help their fellow residents. Surely they have enough clout what with having helped elect President Hillary Clinton.

Oh, wait…


Calexit!

    I really wish President Trump would tell them to pound sand and provide their own money to fix the problems which could have been avoided if the STUPID LEFTISTS

    Where is all this infrastructure maintenance and repair money going in California?
    I hear there is a bullet train to nowhere way over budget and way behind launch schedule.
