The deadliest wildfire in California history has ravaged the town of Paradise, claiming the lives of at least 42 people. 

Stephen Colbert talked about the President’s response to these wildfires — and the contrast to that of most . “I’m gonna start out tonight by saying to the people of California, our thoughts are with you because the golden state is being ravaged by three deadly wildfires in Malibu and northern California,” said Colbert. “There’s been a tragic loss of life and an unprecedented loss of property.” 

“At a time like this, it’s hard to know the right thing to say. But for the wrong thing to say, let’s check the president’s Twitter feed,” he added.

Colbert cited Trump’s tweet which blamed “poor” forest management and threatened to withdraw federal payments.”

“I think that’s called blaming the victim,” said Colbert. “I’d hate to be choking with only Trump there to save me.”
