    I guess that the book is a lie then. Obviously, those comments DID help in the aftermath of a hurricane!

    Super glad this comedy idea lead to a huge donation. And moreso at the thought that poking fun at Trump's hurricane verbage fails has raised a total equal to 1/5th of the money he wants for his oh-so-important wall.

    It's good to see real education for children, so they know better than to act like Trump! It's also great, how the donated proceeds are going to help so many families, so they can educate their children, so they know better than to act like Trump!!

    At least his stupidity is indirectly helping those people out... and I am thankful that there were good people who used his stupidity to sell a book about his stupidity, and then gave all proceeds to organizations that help hurricane victims rebuild their lives... thats amazing... really truly amazing.

    $1M! Wow! Now to put a cherry on the icing, how about the Wonderful John Batiste and the Brilliant Band compose and play an appropriate piece of music (Pirate Theme?) to accompany the Fantastic Book? TRUMP the GRUMP will be incandescent with RAGE that he will NOT get one CENT from this disaster relief initiative that he has studiously avoided. He's the LYING POTUS GAZUMPUS that stole every happy event since his inauguration and introduced many unhappy events in the mean-time (and I mean MEAN!).

    Ok... I am all for assisting in the hurricane relief effort, but... isn't it a bit depressing that a picture book called Whose Boat is this Boat that is created as a comedy show is what gets all this money. I mean why is it that this has to bring in a million dollars.

    No doubt, Trump will take credit and brag about this if he learns this. If criticized for not doing enough for any natural disaster, he'll go 'You know I personally helped raise a million dollars for hurricane victims, do you know?

    Wait a second... 100 percent of CBS proceeds? Who else is proceeding exactly? Also what happens to CBS' cut after the hurricanes are fully recovered? Colbert needs to answer a few more questions when shamelessly promoting charitable causes.

    • retnavybrat
      retnavybrat 5 months ago

      The proceeds (i.e., the money the book makes from sales) are supposed to be split among the charities mentioned. Even after all the victims of Hurricanes Florence and Michael are helped, there will always be natural disasters of some sort, so I would imagine that any money that isn't used now can be used in the aftermath of a future hurricane.
