Donald Trump: Hurricane Florence is ‘tremendously big & tremendously wet’

President Trump Meets with the Emir of Kuwait

In the next 24 hours, the first waves of Hurricane Florence will begin to make landfall in the Carolinas. Let me tell you this: all of us here in the Southern/Mid-Atlantic region are terrified. This is the biggest hurricane to make a direct hit on our neck of the woods in years. Usually, Virginia gets left out of all of the big weather events except for flooding. And I think it will be the same with Florence this time: the hurricane will devastate the coast, and then it will just dump a ridiculous amount of water on North Carolina and Virginia as it churns and stalls out inland. Do you see what I did there? I talked about what I think will happen with some depth, trying to respect the enormity of what’s going to happen to this area in the coming days. Donald Trump can’t do that. He can only do this:

Tremendously Big and Tremendously Wet. With the kicker of a “tremendous amount of water.” Granted, all of the meteorologists are trying to sound the alarm of just how much flooding there will be with Florence. But Trump’s little pea-brain (or pee-brain) can only fart out the word “tremendous” a million times and brag about how wet this hurricane is going to be. MY GOD.

That wasn’t even the dumbest thing Trump did on September 11th. He also did this:

Yes, that’s Trump double-fist-pumping on his way to *checks notes* the hallowed ground where Americans gave their lives to stop the terrorists from flying United 93 to Washington to crash it into the White House. Those Americans TOOK A VOTE in the back in the plane about whether to do something. They made a plan involving the refreshment cart and they literally fought the terrorists in hand-to-hand combat. They were trying to break into the cockpit when the plane went down. The Americans on that flight were heroes deserving of all the remembrances and respect we have to give. And Donald Trump thinks he’s at a MAGA rally and everyone is there for him.

And that’s not all, folks. He also bragged about his response to Hurricane Maria last year, after the federal government lied for months about the real death toll, which is now estimated to be 2,975. Nearly 3000 people died because of the Trump administration’s awful response to Hurricane Maria, and here he is talking about how everything was “incredibly successful.”

    I just can’t.

    ETA He did manage to spell “counsel” correctly in this morning’s rant so there’s that.

  2. runcmc says:

    I don’t even have words anymore for how much I despise him.

    Kaiser & any CBs in the path of the storm… stay safe! We’re all thinking of you and hoping someone other than 45 takes the reins in the aftermath.

    • Jan90067 says:

      Yes, please… evacuate when they say to, stay safe!!!

      I just can’t anymore…I have no words. But everyone needs to know this, especially if you have friends and loved ones in areas that have been hit hard: this…this Sh!t stain, with black holes where a heart and brain are supposed to be RAIDED FEMA BY $10M *BEFORE* HURRICANE SEASON TO FUND ICE!!!!! WHAT THE *&^%$ F????? HOW IS THIS ALLOWED?????

      • jwoolman says:

        FEMA used to be a good agency. They started deteriorating once Homeland Security was installed and it really hampered dealing with Katrina. Obama did try to get FEMA back up to speed but Trump has been breaking it down again from the beginning.

        Trump only cares about what will make him look good to the 15% to 20% of the eligible voters who are his true believers. For him, hurricanes are just photo ops for himself. This has always been the case. The man is simply irredeemably stupid and heartless.

  3. Digital Unicorn says:

    Stay safe everyone! Maybe if you throw your ‘tremendously big’ President at it it will disappear?!?!?

    Twitter are ripping him about his behaviour yesterday, not just about the baby fist pumping (its the kind of thing a toddler does when they’ve gone poo poo on the potty) but he was also photographed grinning and giving thumbs up to the people in attendance, using a photo from last year on twitter to say that they were on their way, acknowledging the event in minimalist terms and late in the day. It was obvs that he was treating the occasion like another one of his Nuremberg rallies. I think even his MAGAt trolls struggled to defend him.

    The twit has a very limited vocabulary. Plus why does he look so orangey red in the video?

  4. Mariposa says:

    He literally just explained that water is wet. No words. :(

  5. Uppenyrcraut says:

    He is tremendously dumb and tremendously small of both hand and vocabulary.

  6. LORENA says:

    I read somewhere that he took money from FEMA to give to ICE… right before hurricane season -_-

  7. Beth says:

    He’s disgusting. Nothing gets me more “pumped” than going to memorial services of national tragedies, right? Trump, put you damn tiny fists in your pockets ffs

  8. Rapunzel says:

    Posted a rambling video about the hurricane this morning. He is so out of touch. Bragging about how it might be “the biggest they’ve ever seen.” Also bragging about how we are so prepared for this , but then saying that one never knows what might happen in this type of situation because “it’s called mother nature.” So basically laying groundwork to excuse himself if things are disastrous.

    Oh, and he also insulted the mayor of San Juan again. Because he’s a racist, misogynistic f*cker.

    • Indiana Joanna says:

      His attacks on her are blatant appeals to his base. But this time something seems different. He is clearly insane, unhinged. It’s like he’s no longer recognizing anyone else is in the room, like a kind psychosis.

    • Cran says:

      FEMA is not prepared. There are approximately 1.4 million people evacuation. FEMA has ~800,000 gallons of water to deal with the crisis. 1/2 gallon of water. For an extended event. Even with state & local authorities doing all they can FEMA whose role is to MANAGE & COORDINATE the crisis response is deficient.

      A FEMA representative when asked this morning about the 10 million in funds diverted to ICE to incarcerate & transport immigrants only repeated that FEMA has adequate resources to handle Hurricane Florence.

      They also had adequate resources to handle Hurricane Maria. 2975 deaths later I’m not confident in FEMA adequacy.

  9. grabbyhands says:

    Among the many things that infuriate me about this person is his TOTAL inability to discuss pretty much anything, including terrorist attacks and deadly natural disasters without framing it in competitive language in which he ALWAYS is the best.

    • Christin says:

      I liked something Woodward said this morning. To paraphrase, ‘I’m not interested in trying to diagnose or label him. The behavior itself is the concern.’

      The inability and apparent lack of interest in doing the job correctly is the problem. He can literally start WWIII, which was a basic concept a senior adviser had to explain to him, according to Woodward.

      Framing everything as it applies to him, as a competition, is a huge issue. He works for every US citizen. And, I’m glad that crazy faced fist pump photo gained traction. Tells us all we need to know.

  10. JustCrimmles says:

    Maybe someone should convince him to participate in a televised boxing match. Lie to him that it’s rigged, that he the greatest boxer of all time and there’s no way he can lose, that everyone will just love him more for it, and when the day comes… Knock the ever-loving f#ck out of him.

    Biggest and wettest, does this man ever NOT have vag on the (pee)brain?!

  11. sommolierlady says:

    I bet it has bigly blowy air too!

    Fist pumping to go to a memorial service for one of the worst U.S. tragedies of the 20th century? He is pure trash.

  12. Beth says:

    “Tremendously big and tremendously wet,” is almost as stupid as the way he described Puerto Rico as “an island surrounded by water. Big water. Ocean water”

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      It just supports where his intellect is, at that of a young child. When children learn something new they often want to tell people about it – that is him. He clearly had just learned that PR was an island surrounded by an ocean, a fact that impressed him so he wanted to show off that he knew this thinking that no one else did. Again, young children do this.

    • boredblond says:

      And after someone evidently had to explain to him that Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, he still seems to believe it’s some foreign country–and we know how he hates those ‘foreigners’–asking for aid. A year later and people are still suffering there because of his stupidity, and children growing older in cages..it’s like a horrible movie, and his supporters keep clamoring for sequels.

    • Giddy says:

      I picture that excellent educator Betsy Devos saying “Yes Donnie, that’s right, an island is land surrounded by water. Resort islands are best.” How I’d love to find out if either of those two dunces know what an Isthmus is. Betsy might win as the dumber of these two. I wonder how she describes hurricanes. “So much rain it ruined my hair!”

  13. Nancy says:

    Still tweeting what a wonderful job he did in Puerto Rico. What is wrong with this person. The only thing big and wet are his smelly armpits. Prayers out to those in Florence’s path. The only thing more destructive than our new normal hurricanes is trump himself.

  14. Darla says:

    He truly is a moron. Maybe 2nd grade level comprehension? 1st? I don’t know. A staggering moron.

    I’m terrified and I am not in the hurricane’s path. We are all so screwed with this shitshow running things. I keep asking myself, come on how did this happen? What is wrong with this country? Even though I know the answer is racism and misogyny. I still cannot truly comprehend this horrific situation we are all in.

  15. Abby says:

    Something I was thinking of yesterday was how he would handle 9/11, and if it would alienate his base. I mean, he was president last year and I don’t remember anything happening. But looking at the ridiculous fist pumping photo…. his supporters are incredibly nationalist. The people I know that still support him all posted about 9/11 and remembering that day—it’s reallt important to keep 9/11 sacred to those people. I wondered if his treatment of the day in his usual way would alienate them.

    to note though, 9/11 should of course be remembered. I do agree with that. But Trump is being Trump. Again; wondering what it will take for hard core supporters to see his true self.

  16. Tw says:

    Thank you for recounting the details of the bravery on that plane. That is what should be remembered. As a NYer who was here on that day, I choose to remember all of the stories of sacrifice and heroism. I cried rewatching this again last night. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MWKPjSirbcU

    • Esmom says:

      Yes, Kaiser’s words about the amazing heroes on the plane brought a tear to my eye.

    • Kaiser says:

      I cry every time I think about the heroes on United 93. I teared up as I wrote that.

    • Christin says:

      I watched (or rewatched) several 9/11 documentaries, to be sure I don’t forget how horrific it was.

      Sometimes details slip away, such as how each of the planes had a very low passenger ratio (fewer people to challenge the cowards). And how the firefighters trudged up the stairs with 60 pounds of equipment (taking a minute per flight).

      I don’t ever want to forget how awful and uncertain that day was.

      • Lady D says:

        I kept my son home from school that day. I thought WWIII was starting. It was a sad scary day. For about 2 weeks after it happened, all I could think about was the people on the plane watching the Twin Towers get closer and closer. The fear, panic, terror, horror those people went through, flying straight into their doom, trapped with no hope of being saved, thinking of the ones they love and will never see again… I couldn’t get them out of my mind. it was a bad time. Then came the horror stories about hundreds of first responders dying in an instant when that building collapsed on them while in the lobby, people jumping from burning buildings or trapped in them.
        I understand tears of rage watching that fool fist pump the day.

      • Christin says:

        I remember admiring an incredible liquid blue sky on my way to work that morning. Within an hour, someone called me and said we are at war with someone.

        The fear all the victims faced is hard to imagine. There were children on those planes, too. Just a horrible tragedy.

  17. Themummy says:

    I never in my life thought I would feel this way about anyone, but I want him to have a massive heart attack and die. On camera would be cool. And I hope it’s painful.

    Does that make me a bad person? I wish I cared. I wish nature would count up all of his Big Macs, fries, soda, and ice cream, and realize it’s running a little late when it comes to this POS.

    Also, why and HOW do people not comment more on his extreme orangeness and those weird pale white eye circles??

  18. B n A fan says:

    Jesus, Mary and Joseph, please deliver us from this evil the minority of the people voted for and we have to suffer the consequences. I’m exhausted 😩, this is not right.

  19. C. Taylor says:

    A terrifying and potentially life altering storm is barreling towards our country and our moron and embarrassment in chief can only say that it will be big and wet. Does he have dementia? Because that is the only plausible reason I can come up with. And who on earth STILL supports this blithering stupid orange Cheeto of a man????

  20. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    There are too many comical and disgusting images of Bigly’s tremendously big and tremendously wet……. Might even garner laughs if he wasn’t the not-my-president.

  21. Eric says:

    Tremendously small and tremendously limp.

    Signed
    Amomymoose

    Affected areas in the Carolinas and/or Virginia will have $10 million less to work with due to the money being diverted from DHS to ICE, all for the building of the first internment camps since the outbreak of World War II.

    In November, we the people vote.

  22. Miss b says:

    I hate him so much it makes my teeth hurt. I’m in VA too—stay safe 🖤

  23. Jerusha says:

    I. Hate. That. Piece. Of. Sh*t. He looks sicker and sicker every day. That makes me very, very happy.

  24. Liz version 700 says:

    OMG I grew up on the coast of NC and they are about to get blasted. And the guy in charge of the country is a knock-off orange “cat in the hat wannabe.” “Water is wet bigly wet oh by the way don’t forget your pet…”. My hometown is so screwed. I have a migraine from the anxiety and he is not helping.

  25. Jerusha says:

    I lived through Camille and Katrina, both Cat 5s. It is beyond terrifying. Please stay safe. I’m sorry the pathetic POS is in charge now.

  26. greenteaandrosehip says:

    That shade of tomato orange/red!!?? Do you think the WH tanning bed has reached its max?

  27. Flying fish says:

    To Kaiser and any other CBs in the path of the hurricane, be safe.

  28. Valerie says:

    Vey good, Donnie! You got one right!

  29. Giddy says:

    Bigly-Boy can’t keep his lies straight about 9/11. First he said that he saw the planes hit the twin towers from his office in Trump Tower. Journalists checked that out at the time and said it was impossible. Then he said that as the planes hit, there were hundreds of Muslims watching andcheering from rooftops. Nope. Now I’m guessing that being around Rudy is making him jealous, so he is claiming that he went to the Twin Towers and worked on the rubble, looking for survivors, and that he hired others to help with search and rescue operations. I never heard that claim until this year. He is a liar and he dishonors the victims of 9/11 by claiming their bravery as his own.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      He did nothing. Nothing.

    • jwoolman says:

      I think he tried to make the claim that he was out there clearing rubble before he was President. I guess he toned it down to something more vague (“I helped a little”) because loads of people were wondering where the heck he was doing that, nobody saw him and he’s hard to miss even amongst the rubble. He was too busy being interviewed that day, telling people that his building used to be the second tallest in Manhattan after the towers were built and now it was the tallest again.

      He has also always liked to claim he was donating big bucks for disaster relief but then never does it.

  30. Marjorie says:

    I worked for the Port Authority of NY and NJ, in the World Trade Center, for over 10 years, and left in 1996. After I left I consulted for the PANYNJ, still do sometimes.

    One of the friends lost that day was Deborah Merrick, who was an admin for the group I used to work for. That morning she left her office in Jersey City to take the employee shuttle over to the WTC to pick up petty cash for the folks in her group. She surely was going to visit with some PANYNJ friends and catch up a bit. It was a sunny day and she was a sunny person.

    When the plane hit tower one, blazing jet fuel blasted down the elevator shafts and blew the doors open in the first floor lobby. Debby got burned over almost her entire body. She spent a month in a burn unit in excruciating pain before she died.

    The fist pumper can rot in hell.

    • The Other Katherine says:

      I am so sorry for your friend’s suffering, and for your loss. There was so much horror on that day, and the horror did not end when the day did.

      Agreed about the fist pumper. Vile and indecent behavior with no respect for the fallen.

    • Liz version 700 says:

      Marjorie I am so sorry about your friend. I agree 100% if there is a hell the fist bumper belongs smack in the middle of it. Seeing his deranged smile and fist bumping yesterday made me so angry. He is a disgusting man.

    • Lightpurple says:

      Ih, I am so sorry. That poor woman.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      Marjorie, I am so sorry for the loss of your friend. my bro was in one of the towers when it was hit (on a floor below the impact, thank god) and was able to make it out. I weep with despair for the people who were not as lucky as my brother and I were. I spent that whole day waiting, watching, crying. even today, as I think about the people who waited, like I did, and then got a different call, I cry.

      this jagoff can rot in hell. I hope his death is prompt and painful. and I don’t think I’ve ever wished that on anyone in my life, but that’s the kind of rage he inspires.

      (truth be told, I think the worst punishment for him personally would be poverty and irrelevance, but I’d rather live in a world without this piece of excrement.)

  31. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    I despise him with the strength of 1 trillion tremendously wet and strong hurricanes.

  32. Electric Tuba says:

    I’m team shoe 👠 with this farker too. Get Cardi B in here yelling Bish come here. Then everybody throw their shoes at him. Lol It was good enough for President Bush.

    Anyway Im trying to make jokes because him saying the words huge and wet made me throw up. If he says moist I may have to blind and deafen myself just to get through the day. Gag central yuck

  33. Aerohead21 says:

    I have family who live there and went to Johnstown just to see him. The love for him there is just astounding to me. I never liked him but he was a celebrity, so it was good entertainment. As a public servant? No. I can’t. I just can’t.

  34. paranormalgirl says:

    Stay safe everyone in the path. If they tell you to evac, EVAC!!!! And make sure you take your pets with you.

  35. why? says:

    The Dotard is so stupid. He doesn’t even make an effort to learn what he doesn’t know. He treats the presidency like it’s a reality tv show.

    Why do these reporters let him get away with lying? It would have been nice if one person in that room called him out for lying to his face. The Dotard gets away with what he does because the press, WH reporters, and people interviewing him aren’t doing their jobs(why does the press keep telling us that the economy is doing well when businesses are closing, prices are rising, and certain products are either disappearing from the shelves or taking weeks to arrive). The governor of Puerto Rico spent so much time covering for the Dotard(said that the death rate was 64 while the Dotard was in Puerto Rico doing photo-ops with his wife, then immediately after the Dotard left Puerto Rico he said that the death rate was in the 1000s; admonished and mistreated the mayor of San Juan for standing up to the Dotard) and now he realizes that all of his complicity made things extremely worse for Puerto Rico.

  36. Lala11_7 says:

    For Trump and his ilk…just like for Bush 2.0 (I don’t care HOW many cute pictures he takes with Michelle Obama…the fact of the matter is…A BUNCH of Black folks died in New Orleans due to his HORRIFIC negligence…and the FIRST thing he said about it when they put the cameras on him was “Good Job Brownie”….)

    When you’re Trump…and you look at Brown people as if they are not human…their disappearance off the face of the earth simply means…”Mission Accomplished”

  37. Fluffy Princess says:

    The ridiculousness of this administration, the cowardice, the cruelty is just astounding–every.single.day.

    And I blame republicans in Congress most of all. They could have ended this nightmare from the get-go, but since they are ALL in it with Russia too, well then, they can’t upset that money train can they? As long as they get their cash, and their job, it seriously doesn’t matter to them. Liars, thieves, grifters, carpetbaggers, racists, misogynists, homophobes–the lot of them deserve to ROT in prison. Let them all take their chances in general population too. No special cells for them.

  38. judith reeder says:

    My grandson is in the Navy, his ship is drydocked in Virginia for repairs, so he and his wife are coming to Ohio for a few days, to get out of the storms path, I pray everyone is safe, looks like a bad one!!!

  39. skipper says:

    Moron. Idiot. The cabinet has his number. I am amazed when books claim Trump is vastly intelligent and his confusion and chaos are a big plan to cover fascism. Where does that nonsense come from? Fascists don’t have to be intelligent.

  40. Original Jens says:

    Of course it was a “success” for him. He didn’t have to care, and there are fewer brown people to pretend to think about. We’ve taken a couple of trips down to Orlando since, and a lot of our Uber/Lyft drivers are from southern American countries. The people from Puerto Rico told us about the horrors and difficulties they are still going through. It’s so incredibly frustrating and humbling and shameful, all at the same time.

    To our east coasters: I know you are all trying to stay safe, so I won’t say it, but know that many strangers are thinking of you all right now.

  41. Anastasia says:

    A student of mine, 17 years old, told me last period that she felt dumb for forgetting a deadline. She was really down on herself. I read this Trump quote to her (“tremendously big and tremendously wet”) and told her to never feel dumb again.

    She laughed pretty hard. Trump quotes are good for something, after all!

  42. Anastasia says:

    Also, I’m convinced Trump was hatched from Satan’s butthole.

  43. Nancypants says:

    Just chiming in and I don’t know how trump’s supporters are still with him but
    on 9/11, my husband and his commander were attending a conference at the Pentagon.
    People tend to forget that the Pentagon was hit too but there it was.

    After doing everything they could to help, my husband and his commander went back to their hotel rooms and cleaned-up and changed uniforms BUT they couldn’t get a way out.
    They even tried to rent a U-Haul but nothing was moving.

    Younger people don’t seem to understand what it was like then and that everything shut down and no one knew where the next strike would be.

    Finally, the two started walking.
    They packed their rolling suitcases and started walking south thinking if they could just get away from D.C. and NYC, they could get a flight or bus or train or rental car or something.
    Not so much.

    I wanted to drive north and meet them but we had two little girls and the commander wanted me to go get her little girl and hunker down and stay safe.

    I was afraid for them.
    My husband is an Irish Catholic dude and his commander was an African-American woman and I thought they would get shot or run over but Americans restored my faith in America because multiple people stopped to give them rides as far as they were going and some went out of their way such as the guy in VA who said his brother was a trucker and was headed to Alabama and he would take them to meet up with his brother.

    It only took them 3 days to get home.

  44. LadyLilith says:

    He is dangerously deranged. I hope the Nation survives this…

  45. flebel says:

    Former Sec. of State Tillerson had it right -F’n Moron!

  46. virginfangirl says:

    He can’t act appropriately because he lacks any empathy. His behaviors are simply acting, they don’t come naturally.

  47. The Recluse says:

    Pretty much him and everyone affiliated with him in our government deserve to be prosecuted. And when we find out who okayed as well as decided that money had to go to ICE from FEMA they need to be charged for crimes against humanity as well.

  48. Zan says:

    Anyone else notice that his hashtag is Florerence? Can’t spell Florence, eh Donald?

  49. em says:

    Even George Washington is giving him the side eye.

    Such an excellent observation.
    I could never come up with This stuff
