Trump is Certifiably Insane: Says California Has No Drought — He'll Solve the Crisis

He should be no where near the Oval Office, period

Entire story from here – photos included, main points:

Trump told California voters Friday that he can solve their water crisis, declaring, “There is no drought.” Then he accused California state officials of denying water to Central Valley farmers so they can send it out to sea “to protect a certain kind of three-inch fish” (he was referring to the three-inch Delta smelt, which is a native California fish on the brink of extinction).

FYI: California is in its fifth year of a severe drought. Last year capped the state's driest four-year period in its history, with record low rainfall and snow. The photos are dramatic and Trump denies them, too, I suppose.

Trump spent 30 minutes before his Fresno rally meeting with more than 50 farmers who complained to him about their struggles, pledging: “We're going to solve your water problem. You have a water problem that is so insane. It is so ridiculous where they're taking the water and shoving it out to sea. They don't understand — nobody understands it. There is no drought. They turn the water out into the ocean.”  

Even though the California State Water Board eased up on the emergency water conservation regulation earlier this month, more than 86 per cent of California is still plagued with moderate to exceptional drought conditions, which have persisted for five years.

But, according to Mr. Know-it-All, Donald J. Trump, there are no water problem and other problems as well that he can’t or won’t solve. Don’t ask me, just ask him. 

His is the worst presidential election campaign in recorded American history.
