Neil Young's home burns in California wildfires

Canadian-born rocker Neil Young lost his home to the wildfires currently ravaging the state. In a post to his website, the musician broke the news that his home in Malibu was burned down over the weekend, then he proceeded to take his anger out on Donald Trump over a tweet Trump made blaming California for the ongoing crisis:

California is vulnerable – not because of poor forest management as DT (our so-called president) would have us think.

This is Trump's tweet:

Among those affected by the wildfires are musicians like Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst and Wes Borland, Tool’s Adam Jones and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea.
