“Our National Embarrassment can’t bring himself to show some empathy to Californians dealing with a horrific disaster,” Legend tweeted on Saturday
“This man is demented. Never stop saying it,” Ava DuVernay wrote.

“This is an absolutely heartless response,” Perry added. “There aren’t even politics involved. Just good American families losing their homes as you tweet, evacuating into shelters.”
On Saturday morning, POTUS tweeted, “There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”
Congressman Ted Lieu also took to Twitter to comment on Trump’s tweet, asking “What is wrong with you? Disaster victims deserve help & sympathy.”
The Woolsey fires broke out late Thursday evening, affecting the Thousand Oaks, Malibu, Calabasas, Agoura and Hidden Hills areas of Southern California. Many stars like Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Caitlyn Jenner, Rainn Wilson and Guillermo del Toro have been forced to evacuate, with “Doctor Strange” director Scott Derrickson tweeting he had lost his home.

Friday afternoon, the official Twitter of Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area reported that Paramount Ranch’s Western Town set in Agoura Hills where “Westworld” filmed many of its Main Street scenes, had burned down.
Ventura County Fire Chief Mark Lorenzen said during an evening news conference that, combined, the Hill Fire and the Woolsey fires spans 41,000 acres, with the latter doubling in size to 35, 000 acres within a matter of hours and forcing approximately 75,000 homes under evacuation orders along the Ventura County-Los Angeles County border.

1. Zero consolation to those who have lost life & property.
2. The Bureau of Land Management's budget is determined by Congress.
3. Your own proposed BLM budget fails to properly fund prevention.
4. The mismanagement is a GOP Congress that refuses give BLM the resources it needs. https://t.co/a9Jku3YFjX

I woke up to:
- the President shaming my state for being on fire.
-the President cancelling a trip to honor the WWI dead because it’s … raining.
-the President giving the Presidential medal of freedom to Elvis and Miriam Adelson.
It is 8:40 AM PST.

You relentless sociopath. We’re going to keep taking care of each other so you just type away with your tiny fingers and brain talking to the voices in your head. WE are rallying and coming together for one another. #Evacuations #CalFire https://t.co/X0bfuJKmZk
