Wednesday, both Governor Gavin Newsom and Senator Kamala Harris were swift to condemn Donny T’s threat to withdraw FEMA funding to California. Both figures responded via Twitter to an absurd tweet by the President, with Newsom saying in part, “we have been put in office by the voters to get things done, not to play games with lives.” Harris responded, saying that “we should together to mitigate these fires,” and not “play politics by threatening to withhold money from survivors.”
