Donald Trump says he has “never heard of a Category Five” storm like Hurricane Dorian. But as Jimmy Kimmel reminds us, Trump said the same thing not so long ago about Hurricane Maria — in fact, he said it several times.

Kimmel reviews all the Trump news that transpired during his August vacation, including the mini-scandal over his younger daughter: “Poor Tiffany!

Click and laugh.
