Comedian Seth Meyers used Hurricane Florence’s impending arrival to the East Coast to criticize President Donald Trump’s handling of Hurricane Maria in 2017, before calling him an “incompetent moron.”

“[Trump] decided to ramble off the top of his head like a fifth grader who just saw a mall fountain,” Meyers said Wednesday on NBC’s “Late Night.” (RELATED: Actor Ethan Hawke Tells Seth Meyers It’s Hard To Sell Movies Without Guns)

“It was tremendously big and tremendously wet. And I threw a quarter in and wished that I wasn’t president anymore,” he said.

Meyers claimed Trump takes pride in his own incompetence and said the president mishandled the government’s response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico last September.


“With a massive hurricane bearing down on millions of people, it’s as important as ever to have a competent government. And yet we have a president who is not only dangerously incompetent but proud of his incompetence,” Meyers said. “Yesterday, for example, he called his response to the hurricane in Puerto Rico an unsung success. And today, doubled down on that.”

Meyers previously called Trump a “lazy, ignorant racist” for his response to Maria and decided to resurrect his insults just in time for Florence.

“Seriously. You’re calling a humanitarian disaster that left thousands of American citizens dead an ‘unappreciated success,’ while attacking the people who actually tried to do something about it,” Meyers concluded. “Not only is our president a callous incompetent moron, he’s also an ass.”
