WASHINGTON, D.C. — In what could be the best example ever of stating the obvious, U.S. President Donald Trump described the catastrophic, category 4-Hurricane Florence as “tremendously big and tremendously wet”.
The comment was made at a White House briefing on Tuesday, during which the President seemed to struggle to find the right words to describe what the national Weather Service is referring to as “the storm of a lifetime for portions of the Carolina coast”.
Florence, with sustained winds of 130mph, is on track to make a direct hit on North Carolina in over 50 years.
“They haven’t seen anything like what’s coming at us in 25, 30 years, maybe ever. It’s tremendously big and tremendously wet, tremendous amounts of water,” said Trump.
Twitter-verse took no time at all to skewer the President for his remarks. Here are just a few responses:

Who knew hurricanes were “tremendously wet?” (Yes, he really just said this. In real life. To reporters. On video.)

#HurricaneFlorerence I’ve just learned from Trump that hurricanes are “tremendously big, tremendously wet” and contain a “tremendous amount of water”. He deserves our respect because he has obviously spent a tremendous amount of time researching the tremendous subject. pic.twitter.com/l9MjXU8Oia

Trump talking about Hurricane Florence: “It’s tremendously big and tremendously wet.”
Oh my god, at least he didn’t say “moist”.
