“Them things disappeared quicker than a bag of cheetos at a weddin’ reception,” said General Manager Claydell Riff. “We’re deep in the heart of Trump country, ya know, so when Trump says to get to rakin’, then the folks 'round here get to rakin’.”
When asked about climate change during his visit to California to see firsthand the devastation brought on by raging wildfires, Trump said, “I have a strong opinion: I want great climate. We’re going to have that, and we are going to have very safe forests because we can’t go through this. Every year we go through this. We’re going to have safe forests and that’s happening as we speak.”
Trump told Americans, “You gotta take care of the floors. You know the floor of the forest, very important….you gotta spend a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things.”
And when Trump speaks, Booger Hole listens.
“It was like the baby Jesus was speakin’ directly to me,” said Mary Grace Futch who ran down to Walmart and bought the last two rakes in the store.
“Then after Pa and I was rakin’ for a coupla hours," she added, "danged if the weather app on my phone didn’t show the temperature a-droppin’ a few degrees next week. I tell ya – that Trump knows more than the generals and the firefighters do – and if he says he’s going to get us a great climate, then he’s going to get us a great climate.”
Other Walmarts in states which Trump carried reported runs on rakes too. Some Walmarts across Alabama, Mississippi and Missouri also reported runs on mops and floor cleaners.
“They didn’t even let the man finish,” said Cleetus Ray Shifflett, General Manager at the Walmart in Possumneck, Mississippi. “Once they heard ‘im say that you gotta clean the floors, they were down here quicker than green grass through a goose buyin' up all the mops and such."
"I tell ya," added Shifflett, "Possumneck is sure gonna have a lot clean floors thanks to Trump -- somma which hain't been cleaned in years."
