Neil Young blasts Trump after losing his home to wildfires
Neil Young is among the slew of celebrities who have lost their Malibu homes to the raging California wildfires — and the rock legend scorched President Trump over the devastation.
In a post to his website late Sunday, Young blasted Trump’s controversial statements that improper forestry management contributed to the deadly blazes.
“California is vulnerable—not because of poor forest management as DT (our so-called president) would have us think. We are vulnerable because of Climate Change; the extreme weather events and our extended drought is part of it,” the musician wrote.
“Our temperatures are higher than ever here in our hottest summer on record,” Young added. “California is a paradise for us all. We are sad not to be able to defend it against Mother Nature’s wrath.”
Young, who has lived in the Golden State since the 1960s, said this is the second home he’s lost to wildfires.
Other stars to lose their homes in the Southern California fires include actor Gerard Butler, singers Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus, and reality TV personality Camille Grammer.
Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga and Will Smith have had to evacuate. Caitlyn Jenner said she was worried about her home burning after evacuating, but it was deemed safe Monday.
