Whose Boat Is This Boat? Comments That Don’t Help in the Aftermath of a Hurricane is a picture book made entirely of quotations from President Donald Trump in the wake of Hurricane Florence. It is the first children’s book that demonstrates what not to say after a natural disaster.

On September 19, 2018, Donald Trump paid a visit to New Bern, North Carolina, one of the towns ravaged by Hurricane Florence. It was there he showed deep concern for a boat that washed ashore. “At least you got a nice boat out of the deal,” said President Trump to hurricane victims. “Have a good time!” he told them. The only way his comments would be appropriate is in the context of a children’s book—and now you can experience them that way, thanks to the staff of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Whose Boat Is This Boat? is an excellent teaching tool for readers of all ages who enjoy learning about empathy by process of elimination. Have a good time!


  • Amazing

    By Dream Theater=God
    It feels like just another poorly written cheap shot at our Idiot in Chief, but it hurts so much more to know this was a real conversation. The book is fantastic and brings to life just how twisted our reality is right now.
  • Worth the donation

    Perfect words. Terrific words. The best words. It’s a teachable moment.
  • Oh my goodness!

    By Foxblastoma
    So concise and ridiculously short. Just like the President’s mind itself, such a great and subtle mirror. No less from the great intellects behind Colbert’s material. You conservatives reading this; beware, we are way funnier and more adept than you are, not even trying!!!!

    The moral. Find Barack and Michelle Obama to help you when presenting yourself after natural disasters. They can make your trip memorable, not stupid. Just loads of laughter at the funniest president ever. I mean funny to laugh at, not with.
  • Confusing, uninspiring, tragic - Trump’s America

    By Geelo57
    Colbert joins the ranks of Meacham and Kearn’s-Goodwin as a major force in historical writing. He is able to succinctly encapsulate the two years of the Trump presidency in 24 short pages. Spend $9.99 for Hurricane relief. First you’ll laugh and then probably cry because this is a true story.
  • I think Whose Boat is this Boat is good.

  • Enlightening!

    I am a better man for having read. I hope to read more POTUS quotes so that I may never forget their distance from reality. I look forward to future publications, perhaps “conflicting quotes”.
