    Default Trump doesn't think he's 'ever even heard of a Category 5' hurricane

    Trump said Sunday that he's "not sure that (he's) ever even heard of a Category 5" hurricane, despite several such storms having threatened the US since he took office.

    "We don't even know what's coming at us. All we know is it's possibly the biggest. I have -- I'm not sure that I've ever even heard of a Category 5. I knew it existed. And I've seen some Category 4's -- you don't even see them that much," Trump said at a briefing with officials at FEMA's headquarters in Washington, DC.

    "But a Category 5 is something that -- I don't know that I've ever even heard the term other than I know it's there. That's the ultimate, and that's what we have unfortunately," he added, in reference to Hurricane Dorian.

    The comments from the President came just before Dorian, a dangerous Category 5 storm, made landfall on the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas. The storm is the most recent of four Category 5 hurricanes to threaten the US since Trump assumed the Oval Office.

    What a dumbass Trump is?!!

    I guess Trump has forgotten about Hurricane Andrew?

    Hurricane Andrew was a powerful and destructive Category 5 Atlantic hurricane that struck the Bahamas, Florida, and Louisiana in August 1992.

    Trump Stumped by Category 5 Storm Bearing Down on East Coast“I’m not sure that I’ve ever even heard of a Category Five,” Trump said during a televised briefing at Federal Emergency Management Agency headquarters in Washington.

    “I’ve seen some Category Fours, you don’t even see them that much,” he said. “But a Category Five is something that, I don’t know that I’ve ever even heard the term, other than I know it’s there. That’s the ultimate and that’s what we have, unfortunately.”

    Three Category 5 hurricanes have hit the mainland U.S. or U.S. territories, including Puerto Rico, since Trump was inaugurated: Irma and Maria


    The president returned to Washington on Sunday from Camp David, Maryland, where he’d been for two nights after canceling a trip to Poland so he could better monitor preparations for the hurricane. Vice President Mike Pence went to Poland in Trump’s place.

    Trump spent several hours Saturday at his private golf club in Northern Virginia, flying in by helicopter from the rustic presidential retreat. While there he received hourly updates on the approach of Dorian, according to the White House. He also had a briefing on the storm late Saturday afternoon.

    The list of things Trump has never heard of that have been committed to writing is gargantuan.

    In my opinion on top of these natural weather related storms, there is another deplorable storm in process that is a menace and threat on the entire world and civilization, worse than Dorian, as in hurricane 45 that developed off the coast of Russia, the GOP and stupid voters.

    Seems Trumps knowledge of hurricanes is right on par with Obama and Democrats knowledge of climate change. Neither know anything about it.

    He was too busy snorting coke off a hookers tits to look up and notice the weather channel.

    Me too#! I hope Dorian lays waste to Trump's Mar-a-Lago compound!

    WASHINGTON – A former Canadian prime minister said she's "rooting" for Hurricane Dorian to directly hit President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club on Florida's coast.

    Kim Campbell, Canada's first and only female prime minister, wrote on Twitter Wednesday: "I’m rooting for a direct hit on Mar a Lago!"
