Lady Gaga called out US President Donald Trump on Twitter yesterday, accusing him of being self-centered and asking him to have compassion on the people of California.
Gaga, who had to flee her own home Friday due to the Woolsey Canyon wildfire, volunteered Sunday at a Red Cross evacuation shelter set up at a local high school. While there, the pop star gave a moving, encouraging speech to the other displaced families.
“I know this is not easy. And I know that a lot of you are feeling a lot of pain right now, and a lot of shock, and this might feel very surreal… I extend my love to each and every one of you,” the artist told the crowd. “This is an emergency, but you are not alone. We have each other… We’re gonna get through this together.”
Trump might be the president of the United State but even a position as powerful as that doesn’t give you the power to stop raging, deadly wildfires. This is why Hollywood celebrities are accused of being so out of touch with the common man.
The fire, which has burned at least 164 square miles and is 65 percent contained, has destroyed 6,453 homes and a total 6,713 structures. It is the most destructive fire in state history.
The dense smoke Saturday limited the use of aircraft fighting the Camp Fire, officials said.
