Stephen Colbert is turning President Donald Trump’s less-than-reassuring trip to assess the damage of Hurricane Florence into a children’s book titled, Whose Boat Is This Boat?: Comments That Don’t Help In the Aftermath of a Hurricane. The book arrives November 2nd and proceeds will benefit organizations helping victims in North Carolina and Colbert’s home state of South Carolina.
The text of Whose Boat Is This Boat? comprises actual comments Trump made during his trip to North Carolina, particularly his impassioned words about a boat that had washed into a man’s backyard (“At least you got a nice boat out of the deal,” Trump actually quipped).
“This way, Donald Trump’s comments about that boat are helping,” Colbert said of the book. “In spite of him.” The host added, “It’s the perfect gift for young readers and presidents who don’t read.”
Whose Boat Is This Boat? is available to pre-order via the Late Show website. Proceeds will be split among the Foundation for the Carolinas, the One SC Relief Fund, the North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund and World Central Kitchen.
