With Hurricane Florence bearing down on the Carolinas, Donald Trump posted a Twitter video in which he both claiming to have everything in hand and warned of catastrophe.

“That video is like a local news report where the meteorologist called in sick and the sports guy had to fill in at the last moment,” Meyers said. “If you want people to take your message seriously maybe have higher production quality than a mid-level YouTube star… ‘This storm is big, get out of the way, but before you do please like and subscribe.'”
Trump also bragged about his handling of Hurricane Maria last year and said the death toll has been inflated.
“That’s the official death toll from an independent study commissioned by Puerto Rico’s government and yet our deranged president doesn’t believe it,” Meyers said. “That’s the official death toll, you lunatic. Now we know why he’s so orange, his brain is just melted pumpkin guts.”
