Publisher's Summary

100 percent of The Late Show’s proceeds from this book go to hurricane relief.  

Whose Boat Is This Boat? Comments That Don’t Help in the Aftermath of a Hurricane is 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 listeners of all ages who enjoy learning about empathy by process of elimination. Have a good time!

3 minutes of amusement, in exchange for a charitable donation. Worth the time and money.

Where are the paper towels to throw?

Idiot statements from a reality show President during a time of crisis. Back in the good old days when we had hurricanes and not pandemics or riots, the reality show President showed his idiot observations we as good as his non-helpful gestures.
Stephen Colbert shared these comments with us in a literary format, narrated by the great Stephen Colbert. This review probably has more words than the book.
Thank you for reading.

Comedy, Drama, Terror On And Off The High Seas

Never before has a president done more or written better for the Americsn people. Really it's a terrific, terrific book. Many people are talking Pullitzer and I don't say that in a braggadocious way it's just that now that I single handedly stopped the terrorist's caravan folks can finally have an account of one my other very, very successful fuck it. Donald Trump is an ass and everyone who can read a complete paragraph knows it.

Perfectly describes his mouth.

I bought this book as a donation to the survivors of hurricane Florence. It is typical DJT and I hope that he gets the opportunity to hear it. Hopefully it will show him just how stupid he sounds.

Stupid, Can't believe I paid for this!

Dumb thing ever I want a refund. Not entertaining at all. nothing but fillers and sound effects combined with about 30 seconds of reenacted Trump Quotes. Stupidest thing I have ever heard. PS I'm not a Trump Fan so I don't hate cause it insults him.

Better in print version

I love Colbert but this book consists of just a few dumb, insensitive things trump said. Most of it is introduction and closing. It's a picture book, it doesn't make a good audiobook.

Another Trump Fail.

This book seems far too complex for 45 to have written on his own. He must’ve had help forming these pre-K sentences. Because 45’s made up language, which often consists of words like “hugely” and “bigly”, does not appear here. I am interested in hearing an upcoming series of books written by 45 (accidentally) and performed by Stephen Colbert, exploring the presidents attempts to show empathy during a crisis. This is a great way to donate to charity!

I know this is a fundraiser, but...

I get what this "audiobook" is all about. Really! I truly do. I know the words are quotes from He Who Must Not Be Named. Somehow it manages to be s disappointment anyway.

Nobel Prize For Literature?

One of the best books I have ever read which focuses on crass and emotionally illiterate comments by a head of state touring a community affected by a natural disaster.
