Not a peep or a tweet from Trump re. the Oakland fire.

Tweets of prayer for the victims for the Tennessee fire and SE United State tornadoes. But not one character for the Oakland fire victims and their families. It's as if his fingers are paralyzed when it comes to people in blue states (except to bash Boeing).

But the ghost ship is a more local story as well. The others are more regional, even though the Oakland fire was more deadly.

I'm frustrated by my facebook feed for the same reason. I grew up in East Tennessee and lived in Oakland, so ive been seeing the grief from both places. It seems to me that Gatlingberg has longer legs and a lower death toll.

of 90% of all business regulations, that would include fire codes, occupancy codes and the likes. Then this kind of tragedy will
become commonplace.
