This past Wednesday, President Donald Trump was in the Carolinas to tour the damage of Hurricane Florence.
Trump spoke with first responders as well as elected officials and other locals about the hurricane.
..a hurricane Trump called “one of the wettest we’ve ever seen, from the standpoint of water.”

You see where this is going, right?
Prepare to take a ride on the awkward train.
Next stop, this comment…
“At least you got a nice boat out of the deal.”
Trump was visiting homes that were destroyed by the hurricane when he spoke to a resident who procured a yacht in their yard.
“At least you got a nice boat out of the deal,” Trump said.
Trump additionally assured the resident that he would do his best to help with an insurance issue.
…and then he went on to gush about the boat that was launched into said resident’s yard, saying the boat was “incredible.”
“They don’t know whose boat that is,” he said. “What’s the law? Maybe it becomes theirs.”
Is this Trump or Bush talking right now? I have lost track.
And then, during a briefing with North Carolina officials – Trump asked about a golf course – his golf course to be exact.
“How is Lake Norman doing?” Trump asked. “I love that area. I can’t tell you why, but I love that area.”
Next to Lake Norman is Mooresville, where The Trump National Golf Club Charlotte is located.
Let’s hope there was a yacht that found its way onto the club so he could leave Hurricane Florence survivors alone with their wetness.
But now it is time for the ultimate shake-my-head phrase Trump shared with those looking for solace.
“Trump is with you.”
In reassuring South Carolina’s local officials that the federal government would help them in their recovery from the hurricane, Trump went onto say this awkward bit.
“Washington is with you,” Trump said.
And then he legit finished his thought with,
“Trump is with you.”
Is anyone else as weirded out as I am about this?!
Despite officials sharing how Florence caused massive damage in South Carolina, Trump rerouted the conversation to what he thought would be exciting.
“I think the most exciting part is going to be that rebuild,” Trump stated. “Because we’re going to have a lot of rebuilding. I flew over, and there’s a lot of damage.”
Last but certainly not least, Trump helped distribute meals to people in need in New Bern – a North Carolina city hit hard by the storm.
And as he handed takeout boxes to one driver, MSNBC caught the following leaving Trump’s mouth.
“Have a good time!”
Now if you’ll excuse me, I am going to crawl into a hole now and die of embarrassment.
