Donald Trump took to Twitter after hearing the news that the Notre Dame Cathedral was burning to the ground and offered unsolicited advice on how to put out massive fires.
The president, which appears to have the mind of a five-year-old, told firefighters in Paris to “act quickly” while also suggesting using “flying water tankers.”
Trump tweeted out saying:
“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!”

Twitter users decided to troll the president over his response:
Yeah lets drop 8000 lbs of water on top of an old wooden roof.

What do I know about firefighting, maybe nothing (but I did become President!), but if I were the mayor of Paris, I would PUT OUT the Notre Dame fire, add some additional great features, and RAKE the leaves around the building! But again, what the hell do I know? pic.twitter.com/XlTRhVHoo4

Maybe they can just rake the sky.

“must act quickly,” what awesome advice! oh my god, it’s a good thing you mentioned that because otherwise the fireman would have lollygagged their way to the fire while smoking cigarettes and carrying baguettes in a little net tote as French firemen usually do. GOOD THINKING SIR

The Paris Fire Department is certainly not checking your feed for advice.
