Donald Trump gave Paris some terrible firefighting advice – 15 savage burns
While the world watched on in horror as Notre Dame Cathedral burnt, political leaders, dignitaries, historians and the rest of us offered our condolences, but Donald Trump couldn’t just do that – he had to give his unsolicited advice, too.
So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!

It’s a good job he suggested acting fast, because the Paris Fire Service would undoubtedly still have been chilling on the Left Bank and enjoying the view. Trump’s hot take earned him some swift and devastating scorn.
Mr President, I regret to inform you that you remembered this idea from an episode of Paw Patrol. https://t.co/TSZeZDbELb
