Donald Trump’s Disastrous Hurricane Dorian Response | The Daily Show

The Bahamas has just been hit with one of the worst hurricanes
ever recorded. And with it being reported
that 13,000 homes may have been destroyed, this island nation is gonna need
as much help as they can get. So please donate if you can. Everybody’s gonna need it. And, you know,
whenever I see this, I always ask myself, I go, like, “Why do hurricanes
always destroy the most beautiful places
on Earth?” Like, I wish
hurricanes hit places we actually wanted to rebuild,
you know? Like, why doesn’t a hurricane
hit LaGuardia Airport? Huh? Yeah. That would be great. Then we could start over from
scratch and fix that shithole. -(laughter)
-Anyway, the chances are the hurricane will be like,
“LaGuardia? (bleep) that. No. “They don’t even have a place
to charge your phone. I’m not going there.” So Hurricane Dorian
has slammed into the Bahamas, and now it is headed
towards the U.S. The good news is, President
Trump has a lot of experience handling hurricanes
of this magnitude. The bad news is, he doesn’t
remember any of his experience. NEWSWOMAN:
The president appeared baffled by the storm’s intensity… I’m not sure that I’ve ever
even heard of a Category 5. I knew it existed. NEWSWOMAN:
…even though there have been four Category 5 hurricanes
since he’s been in office. It’s not the first time
he’s claimed surprise about the common term. Category 5. Never heard
about Category 5’s before. Category 5 is big stuff. Category 5. Nobody’s ever heard
of a 5 hitting land. It actually touched down
as a Category 5. People have never…
seen anything like that. I never even knew
a Category 5 existed. Okay, this…
this is just weird, man. Every time
a Category 5 storm comes, Trump acts like
it’s never happened before? It must be so strange working
for Donald Trump. Can you imagine what it’s like,
people just coming in, “Mr. President,
the hurricane is a Category 5.” (like Trump):
“Wow, Category 5. That’s never happened before.” “No, sir,
they happen all the time.” “What does?”
“The Category 5.” “Wow! That’s
never happened before!” (laughter) And I don’t know if Trump
was having a slow weekend, or if the barometric pressure
from the storm did something to his brain,
because not only did he forget how big the storm was, but he
forgot where it was going. NEWSMAN:
The president also misstated the storm’s
possible trajectory. Alabama could even be in for… at least some very strong winds,
and something more than that. It could be. So for Alabama,
just please be careful, also. NEWSMAN: Not long after that,
the National Weather Service corrected the president,
saying Alabama will not see any impacts from Dorian. Yeah. Trump had to be corrected
by the National Weather Service. And I know
we’re used to it by now, but it still amazes me
how often the government has to tell you not to pay
attention to the president. Yeah, Trump is like your friend
who you’re driving home from a wisdom tooth surgery,
he’s all drugged up, yelling crazy shit
out the window, like, “There’s a dragon
in the next car!” It’s like, “No, Donald, that’s
just a hipster with a vape. -Calm down!”
-(laughter) And I-I feel bad
for anyone in Alabama. ‘Cause can you imagine
if people in Alabama heard Trump and they took it seriously? People were probably
saying things that they wouldn’t normally say ’cause they think a hurricane
is coming for them. You can’t take
that shit back. Huh? There’s probably one family
who was loading up the car, like, “Quick, kids,
get the Xbox, let’s go.” It’s like, “What about Grandma?”
“Grandma doesn’t play Fortnite! “Get her out of here!
She’s dead weight! What? No hurricane? All right,
Grandma, I’m sorry about that.” So wherever it’s headed, this
hurricane is serious business. But, unfortunately, serious business is not
Donald Trump’s specialty. While Hurricane Dorian
was hitting the Bahamas, President Trump
was hitting the links. On Monday,
the president played golf at his Trump National Golf Club
in Virginia. Aides say he did receive
hourly briefings on the storm. We should remind you
President Trump had canceled a diplomatic trip to Poland set
to mark the 80th anniversary of the beginning
of World War II, in order, his aides said,
to better monitor the storm. Yep. Many people were outraged
when they found out the president went golfing
as a hurricane barreled down on the east coast
of the United States. But, in Trump’s defense, golf is a great way
to monitor a hurricane. Yeah. You’re just like,
“Uh, I think it’s coming. I think it’s coming.
Is it?” You’re just like, “Let me see.
(makes whooshing sound) “Oh, that went way off. “Yeah, that’s the hurricane.
that’s not me. The hurricane’s close.” So when it comes to hurricanes, President Trump doesn’t remember
the category, he doesn’t know
where they’re going, and he’s not even really
paying attention. Luckily, he does have a way
to stop them. TV REPORTER: As Dorian churns,
so are ideas about how to stop hurricanes
in their tracks. Why? This report in Axios, that President Trump suggested
on multiple occasions that national security
officials explore disrupting the storms by dropping a nuke right into
the middle of them. Now, during a recent
White House briefing, Axios quotes
the president saying, “I got it, I got it,
why don’t we nuke them? “They start forming off
the coast of Africa, “as they’re moving across
the Atlantic, “we drop a bomb inside
the eye of the hurricane “and it disrupts it. Why can’t we do that?” Well, the briefer reportedly
replied, “We’ll look into it.” (laughter) Something tells me
Trump hears the phrase, “We’ll look into it”
about 50 times a day. He just says random shit like, (mimics Trump): “What if Oreos
had the cream on the outside and the cookie on the inside?” (normal voice):
“Uh, we’ll look into it, sir.” (laughter) Now, as president,
you should know that nuking a hurricane is
a terrible idea, all right. Not only will it
not stop the hurricane, but now you have nuclear fallout
being spread by 200-mile an hour winds. The stuff’s gonna go everywhere. It’s like taking a dump
into an open Vitamix. It’s not a good idea. Not to mention the effects
on the ocean. You’ve got nuclear waste going– I mean, Osama bin Laden
is in the ocean. You drop a nuke,
next thing you know, you’re 20 dealing with
Godzilla bin Laden. You don’t know what
that shit will do. (laughter) So, look. I know people get mad when they see Trump playing golf
as a hurricane is closing in, but after everything
we’ve heard, I think the less involved
Trump is with this hurricane,
the better it is. Think about it.
He doesn’t know how big it is. He doesn’t know
where it’s going, and he’s got some batshit ideas
for stopping it. So I say
let the man play his golf, because if we don’t
there’s a good chance Trump ends up nuking Alabama.

  1. nuking hurricanes was a fake story. and… dorian didn't hit the u.s as expected which should be good news. but those with orange man bad demented syndrome can only see one thing. only one thing is funny, only one thing left in their life to resist, only one thing to obsess over in their living nightmare.
    never mind that the bahamas have zero to do with florida or puerto rico or haiti or the dominican … it's a wealthy member of the united commonwealth. have all their rich bankers hiding offshore accounts help pay their way toward relief.

  2. Ill be glad when the phony people like Trevor Noah are no longer on the air. This show better get dumped with Trumps re-elections. Trevor Noah is a worthless liar just like Cobert and that POS drunk jimmy Kimmel. They might as well be sucking the fart out of a dogs ass at this point

  3. There is no fallout from a nuke in the ocean. We nuked the pacific lots of times, and the fallout was only when land was nuked.

    Storms require a low pressure in the middle to form. A nuke will raise the temperature of the air and water in the eye, causing a massive pressure spike that will hang around for long enough to disrupt the storm.

    I haven't actually seen data that proves a nuke won't work. There's just the assumption that it's a bad idea. When I've discussed this with others, they can't use facts to prove either of the above two statements wrong, they can only change the subject.

  4. you guys should watch this old doc – open your eyes, sheep!


  6. Trump drinks 12 diet cokes a day. Aspartame is a WELL KNOWN neuro-toxin that is linked to neuro-degenerative diseases like alzheimers and schizophrenia. He literally has brain damage. When you analyze his behavior with this in mind, he is not a mystery at all. He is an aging opportunist who will go anywhere money and power take him, regardless of allegiance to any state or country or group of people, who has partial brain damage. That is who Donald Trump is. This country literally elected a president with brain damage.

  7. Lest we forget: 18 U.S.C. §2074 makes it a crime to issue a counterfeit weather forecast, claiming that it was issued by the Weather Bureau. #Sharpiegate

  8. The United States should pay for all of the storm damage in the Carribbean and let all of those hard-working people to move to the US. So selfish. Cuba, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Panama, Mexico and South America won't help, either !

  9. It's really "dumb" as most of you say, that you don't research and listen to a puppet like this guy. Attack is going to be your defense, how about watch and listen to actual videos, read a epoch times newspaper.

  10. I used to get upset now I just get amused at you liberals stupidity, if you had a brain you might use it but you don't have one, all you have are ears and you listen to everyone else and parrot what they say ,you really should try using your brain occasionally, but if you don't it's okay cuz you're always good for a laugh…

  11. Anyone else gonna lose their shit if he gets RE ELECTED?🤬 I know he makes the news hilarious but I’m done. VOTE 🗳!!!

  12. What a great country! You can be born in a mud hut in some slum and America generously opens her door
    and give you a life and hope and wealth so you can shit on the President of the United States.

  13. it's a big reason that they are the most beautiful places in the world is because they keep getting reset more often than other places and they don't build up with a bunch of garbage

  14. I'm right wing but why the fuck does trump have a USA hat this is not what usa stands for trump is just here to cause chaos same with Hillary and obomba they Hillary and trump work together Hillary is pure evil look at tarrot cards even predict trumps chaos

  15. Usually narcissist are very easy too manipulate. What if everybody go to pray him ? "Mister Stable Genius and good looking president your the only one who can save the world (yes just like Bruce Willis in his time). Please sir take a bomb, and an airplane will transport you in the center of the hurricane (yes category 5, yes) then you jump and with the bomb and save the state, the nation, the world, the planet !!! only you can do that sir !!!". No way for him to understand that he is not in the center of the hurricane and that's a GI Jo Bomb. Let s go try it. Just for fun !!!

  16. Trumps a record setting president which Noone will ever come close too in a long time. Trevor Noah is an ignorant liar who has to know his place.

  17. Yet he is the one calling people "dumb with low IQ". He is not only a bully, but the dumbest president of the history of this country. God help us all.

  18. This is a test that all you racist bigoted demons here in Apartheid America are failing miserably. A Christian nation my rear end, but you will reap exactly what you sew (if you show no mercy – I God will have no mercy on you) and your day of destruction is soon to come…

    James 2:12-13 New International Version (NIV)

    12 Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom, 13 because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

  19. You people have no clue what you are talking about. The Bahamas are not American Islands, they belong to Great Britain. If you want to cast blame, at least cast it where it belongs. And America is always first to give aid no matter who is actually responsible.

  20. The word was "could" not "would" so he has an option to be wrong since he not a weather person. I don't find these jokes funny at all just a dumb ass comedian making jokes from manipulating his words. haa haa NOT!

  21. Dealing with Trump is like Katt Williams joke about dealing with his son asking a million question and he just goes along with it.

  22. is this really who runs our country?is this real news or fake?this cant be true!no friggin way is this man this ill informed hard to believe 🙁 this has me in an uproar right now and im not even a political kinda person!we need scientists in office!wt?

  23. Nucking hurricanes was looked at back in the 50's, and it was established that that would never work. I am one year older than Donald Trump, and obviously he wasn't paying attention even back then.

  24. America must be a truly free country as this South African lowlife refugee is allowed to make fun of it's President. Go back home to South Africa and make fun of your lowlife people there who are looting and killing their own black people because they are from other Africans countries.

  25. Forget about him repeating himself multiple times upon the same idea. If you don’t know what a category five hurricane is, you lack basic knowledge.

  26. Mr Noah, among much promoted misinformation, are you saying USA should help a sovereign nation & British protectorate, but avoid holding UK accountable?


  28. Probably didn’t know he was actually playing instead of checking the Hurricane tracker. It’s also why he doesn’t believe in Category 5 storms. He has never made one, so how could God?

  29. SHUT THE FUCK UP M F. U R disastrous. stealing all jobs opportunities. how u got this job by being disastrous mother fuckers .

  30. What a bumbling idiot this buffoon is, let's hope and pray that the imbecile doesn't get a second term one can only endure so much dumbassery

  31. Presidents are not elected they are selected and Trump was selected to push forward the white supremacy agenda to make Amerikkka great again before the LORD Almighty brings forth a fire in modern day Babylon for all the sick treatment the so-called whites have put on the LORDS chosen people the Biblical Israelites the so-called negroes.Yah our LORD black,Adam and Eve black,Moses black.Abraham black,and the man ignorantly called Jesus black as Revelations 1:13 to 15 informs us.The LORD has a punishment in store for you heathen gentiles just you wait.
