    Wew! Thank whatever "God" it is that the Orange-and-Purple-One prays to: We do not have a drought in California. This comes from Donald Trump, Ph.D. Now, I'm not the brightest bulb on this board, but I'm pretty damn sure that in the many trips I take on business between here (Silicon Valley) and the Central Valley, the reservoirs are remarkably low. But if the Orange-and-Purple-One says it's a ruse, than a ruse it must be.

    When Secretary of the Interior, Bristol Palin, is sworn in, I'm sure we can all rest a little easier knowing that the dirt spewing out of the pipes in Portersville is really just Trump pixie dust . . .

    And as for that suit against Trump University: without merit. The judge is of Mexican heritage, after all.

    OK. Let's see how long it takes for the Trump brigades to find an excuse for this latest swim around Lake Retardo.

    -------------------

    California, the alarming statistics about your historic drought are not fooling Donald Trump.

    The presumptive GOP presidential nominee — and quack meteorologist — denied the existence of California’s relentless drought Friday.

    “There is no drought,” he told a crowd of Californians who have watched their state’s agriculture industry wither from years of excruciating dryness.

    The Golden State is, in fact, in the midst of a record-breaking drought. The past four years have been the driest in the state’s history. Last year was so bad that ski resorts had to close early, lawmakers passed ultra-stiff standards on faucets and Starbucks even moved water bottling operations out of the state.

    But none of that seemed to faze the bombastic billionaire, who insisted at the rally that California’s “insane” water problem stemmed from state officials denying water to farmers, instead piping it out to the ocean in an attempt to protect “a certain kind of three-inch fish.”

    “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," Trump said at the Friday night Fresno event.

    The apparent weather expert’s solution?

    “If I win, believe me, we're going to start opening up the water so that you can have your farmers survive," he barked. “There is no drought. They turn the water out into the ocean.”

    Trump appeared to be referring to longstanding federal laws designed to protect endangered fish by ensuring the species have enough water. The rules dictate how much water from the Sacramento River must run into the ocean.

    Politically influential rural-water districts and well-off corporate farmers have harshly criticized those laws in the wake of the drought, arguing that more water should be captured and diverted to them.

    The Delta smelt — likely the “three-inch fish” Trump blabbered about — is a native California species on the brink of extinction. The smelt has become an emblem in the state's battle over environmental laws and water distribution.

    California is the country's No. 1 agriculture producer. The state's drought is raising the stakes in water disputes among farmers, cities, towns and environmental interests.

    After the Fresno speech, Trump traveled to San Diego for a second Friday rally, where he was greeted by a crowd of about 1,000 protesters. At least 35 were arrested when the demonstration turned violent, with some anti-Trump activists throwing bottles and brawling outside the venue.

    In his second speech, Trump spent 12 minutes lashing out at the judge handling a lawsuit against Trump University, calling him a “hater” and accusing him of being Mexican.

    “I have a judge who is a hater of Donald Trump, a hater. He’s a hater. His name is Gonzalo Curiel,” he said of the veteran judge and former U.S. attorney overseeing suits against the now-defunct school, which has been accused of fraud.

    Trump then began to speculate on Curiel’s ethnicity.

    “The judge, who happens to be, we believe [the Royal "we!"], Mexican, which is great, I think that’s fine,” Trump said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

    Curiel — who was appointed to the U.S. District Court in 2011 — was born in Chicago and later attended Indiana University School of Law.

    Dear God :facepalm:

    Sad to see the gullible sheep buy into the misleading headline.

    Trump discussed how easily California's water problem could be fixed (hint: it involves killing a two-inch fish).

    Some people just aren't cut out for making threads.

    Northern Cal currently has a surplus. The melt from the Sierras is sure to cause more with the heavy snowfall this past winter. I live directly across the street from a main reservoir in North LA. The level has been raised over 30' (I know this because of where I fish from weekly) in the past few weeks.

    Edit:also, you're posting articles from last year when, yes, there was a drought

    Yes LTDjr.....Seeing how 90% of all fresh water in Cali falls or comes from Northern Cali...Hippie central....How is he going to change states rights? Take them away? Trump should try harder in Fla, Ohio, if he wants to defeat the old cooter. Cali is a blue lock.

    I'm in SoCal. You don't think that the north having a surplus relates to SoCal? They didn't have a surplus last year. Even the northern reservoirs were being drained. They are currently refilling the southern reservoirs though.
