Wettest we’ve ever seen from the standpoint of water: Trump becomes a meme
The US president was describing the impact of Hurricane Florence.
“This is a tough hurricane, one of the wettest we’ve ever seen from the standpoint of water.”
These are the words of US president Donald Trump, as he shared a video message with his country in the wake of the turmoil and destruction caused by Hurricane Florence.
Trump’s comment on water’s wetness has, unsurprisingly, set tongues wagging and keys clacking on Twitter, where many thought they’d jump on the bandwagon – here’s eight of the best examples.
