Skip to comments.Trump Blamed for California Homeless [semi-satire]

Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif) laid the blame for his state's homeless crisis on President Trump. "We put a plan together to have an interagency council address the issue and strategize a plan on a regional basis," he said. "It was the unanimous consensus of this council that the federal government should give our state more money. The response we got from the President was mockery for the billions we've already spent on infeasible and counterproductive projects. This is totally unfair. Our state voted for Secretary Clinton to be president. She should be our state's president and doing what she would've done is what Trump should be doing if he had any respect for democracy."
Clinton sent a message of sympathy to the Governor and thanked him "for pointing out the deficiency of the Electoral College for choosing a president. As we can see, our flawed process has given us a president that lacks the flexibility to meet needs like those seen in California. If I were the president right now I'd work on brokering a deal to sell off some of the state's assets to China or Russia in exchange for a modest donation to the Clinton Foundation. The proceeds of the asset sale could be used to buy bus tickets to send the homeless to another state and still leave plenty left over for new projects. The donation would help support the critical mission of the Clinton Foundation. It would've been a win-win outcome for all parties."
Newsom expressed his appreciation to Clinton "for your kind note" and called her hypothetical approach to a solution "more in tune with how our Party has always sought to govern. It's a whole lot better than the intolerable condition that Trump insists we must meet to get his help." The "intolerable condition" appears to be Trump's request that Newsom "politely ask for help."

Gavin Newsome is the democratic governor of California. If you are looking to blame someone for the homeless crisis, try looking at the person who can affect it, the governor.
