From a Finn, a tweet about raking their forests.

Malla Hadley (@mallahadley) Tweeted:
@JenniferJJacobs I grew up in Finland. a) it rains all year round. b) we have a lengthy and cold winter. c) Finland is a sparsely populated country with just over 5mil ppl, with land size ~3/4 of CA and most of it forests and lakes. d) no friggin body is raking the forests.

WTF would they do with all the fucking leaves? Burn em?

12. That Would Take One Giant Landfill

Not to mention the awful mud slides during their rainy season.

5. tRump was obviously confused again...

He was thinking about how his servants rake the sand under the forest of Mara Lago palm trees.

6. Reminds me of Alice in Wonderland...

"If seven maids, with seven mops, swept it for half a year, do you suppose," the Walrus said, "that they could get it clear?" "I doubt it," said the Carpenter, and shed a bitter tear...

8. That "floors" is a low-class NYC expression. Growing up I hated when friends of mine...

....used it.

Where we normally would say "ground", they said "floor".

9. Love it: "no friggin body is raking the forests"

I'm sure one of his men told him to say that-- he sure as hell wouldn't know anything about forest raking!!

And it was an idiotic, snide thing to say anyway

13. The only raking he is familar with is that orange haystack on top of his

empty head. What a fucking moron. Everyday I say, "Can I hate him any more than I already do?". And the next morning I wake up, turn on the news and realize a new level of hate.

16. Yeah... I'm like Googling Finnish Forest Fires...

 

and I can't find crap about raking. Seeing stuff about how their forests are divided a lot by roads so there are distances to separate them so they don't spread from tree TOPS as fires normally do...

tRump is such a jerk.... Where does he come up with this crap?
