ACCIDENT, BY DONALD TRUMP. ALL OF THE WORDS INSIDE ARE
THINGS HE ACTUALLY SAID WHILE TOURING THE DAMAGE FROM
HURRICANE FLORENCE. AND THANKS TO OUR PUBLISHERS,
SIMON & SCHUSTER, ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE BOOK GO TO DISASTER
RELIEF, LIKE “WORLD CENTRAL KITCHEN,” WHICH WAS STARTED

WHICH BRINGS US TO IDAHO’S COEUR D’ALENE LIBRARY, WHICH
I DO NOT HAVE TO TELL YOU, WAS 2012’S IDAHO LIBRARY OF THE
YEAR. SUCK IT, NORTH BINGHAM COUNTY
PUBLIC LIBRARY! I DON’T MEAN THAT, NORTH BINGHAM
COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY. YOU GUYS ARE THE BOMB! NOW, YOU MIGHT REMEMBER, A
COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, I TOLD YOU THAT AN UNKNOWN TROUBLEMAKER IN
COEUR D’ALENE WAS TAKING BOOKS AND HIDING THEM AROUND THE
LIBRARY SO PATRONS COULDN’T FIND THEM. NOW, THEY HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO
CATCH THE CULPRIT IN THE ACT, DESPITE THE LIBRARY’S NEW
CAMPAIGN, “IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, WHISPER SOMETHING.”( LAUGHTER )
AND HERE’S THE SPECIFIC THING ABOUT THIS. THE BANDIT, EVIDENTALLY,
TARGETED LEFT-LEANING BOOKS, PARTICULARLY ANYTHING THAT WAS
CRITICAL OF PRESIDENT TRUMP, AND THAT INCLUDED “WHOSE BOAT IS
THIS BOAT?” NOW, OBVIOUSLY, FROM YOUR– YOUR
YOU AGREE, WE COULDN’T LET THAT HAPPEN. SO A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, WE
CAME UP WITH A SOLUTION. I DON’T BELIEVE ANYONE SHOULD
MESS WITH LIBRARY BOOKS. SO WE’VE DECIDED TO HELP OUT THE
READERS OF COEUR D’ALENE BY SENDING THEM AN UNHIDE-ABLE
EDITION OF “WHOSE BOAT IS THIS BOAT?”
COME ON OUT! THERE YOU GO!( APPLAUSE )
GOOD LUCK HIDING THIS ONE, SUCKER. THAT BOOK, WHICH IS AN ACTUAL,
FUNCTIONAL, ACTUAL BOOK, IS THREE FEET BY FOUR FEET– ALMOST
AS BIG AS THE MENU AT THE CHEESECAKE FACTORY. AND I’M PROUD TO SAY THAT OUR
SPECIAL UNHIDEABLE VERSION OF “WHOSE BOAT IS THIS BOAD?” HAS
MADE ITS WAY TO THE COEUR D’ALENE PUBLIC LIBRARY. AND WE’VE GOT SOME EXCLUSIVE
FOOTAGE. HERE WE’VE GOT A FEW LIBRARIANS
CARRYING THE BOOK IN AND UNPACKING IT. THEY HAD SOME TROUBLE FIGURING
OUT WHERE TO SHELF THE BOOK. SO THEY BROUGHT THE BOOK OVER
FOR A LITTLE STORY TIME. AFTER WHICH, ONE OF THE KIDS
FIGURED OUT IT COULD BE USED AS A TENT.( LAUGHTER )
SO NOT ONLY DOES THIS BOOK FUND HURRICANE RELIEF. THIS EDITION CAN ALSO SERVE AS
TEMPORARY SHELTER! FINALLY, A COUPLE OF YOUNG
READERS DECIDED TO CHECK THE BOOK OUT, THEN LUGGED IT OUT TO
THEIR CAR TO TAKE IT HOME. FUN FACT: THAT COPY OF THE BOOK
WEIGHS 27 POUNDS, SO IF THOSE KIDS DO A BOOK REPORT ON IT, IT
COUNTS AS BOTH “LANGUAGE ARTS” AND “P.E.,” ALTHOUGH–

ALTHOUGH, THEY SHOULD MAKE SURE
TO GET IT BACK TO THE LIBRARY ON TIME. BECAUSE ANY LATE FEES INCURRED
WITH THE OVERSIZED EDITION MUST BE PAID VIA GIANT NOVELTY CHECK. AND COEUR D’ALENE’S LIBRARY
DIRECTOR, BETTY AMMON, HAS A MESSAGE FOR THE CULPRIT HIDING

  1. Hard to say if this is Trumpsters and those principled republicans doing this, given that most Trumpsters can't read and have never been in a library, just like the Orange Idiot. This is what happens when you spend three years in the fourth grade, and then drop out to hunt squirrels. SAD

  2. We have a very small library in my town. It even opens occasionally. We also have a bookshelf on the sidewalk where you can take or leave a book. It’s not monitored, staffed or vandalized and is completely free. We may not have a stoplight, bank or gas station, but we have books and people volunteer, donate and cooperate to make that happen. Words ‘n stuff have done learned me good.

  3. Holy cow, talking about Trump………. again? Seriously? Move along man, this is soooooooooo played! Here's a novel idea, why not try actual comedy 🤔

  4. Even though the librarians there are Nazis who call the police on people for filming there (unless they like the people doing the filming, apparently), I’ll give them a pass for this.

  5. Mom, who is a retired school librarian, and I enjoyed this story so much. We live in Idaho so we even thought about taking a trip to Cour De Lane to see the book. Thanks for making us laugh 🤣

    Ps: when I asked her who was the most annoying person at the library, she told me a story about a kid who was fired as her library aide, and out of revenge he took the bar out of the card catalog and rearranged all the cards. She had to take all the drawers home to fix it.

  7. Oh poor Donald whose boat is that boat.

    That book is going down in history. Poor Donald LOL))))) There it goes into the bookstore. 2:43

  8. This is awesome. I hope this library displays that book proudly for years to come. Can you imagine the average person's thought process when they walk in and see a giant book not knowing of the library bandit's mischief? Aye, library bandit, ye won't be getting away with it this time!

    Maybe they would think that the library is going to start a trend, and may even release a list of which books will be blown up next. Perhaps some will submit book suggestions.

  9. The library should do a special display. "The books the secret censor is trying to hide" And show them all on one shelf so everyone notices them.

  10. The book was big news in this area too, made the local news on Spokane, CBS-2. I live 75-miles (ca. 121 km) north of CDA and was very happy to see all that was done to correct the taking and hiding of books the person didn't like. I have a copy (of the regular-sized) book I was given for a birthday present last year. Love it! Of course, my friend lives in California, where I used to live, nobody I know locally would buy it!

  11. "whose boat is this boat?" . Drumpf has the best words. And the best grasp of English context. You'd expect nothing less from a "Stable Genius"

  12. If that guy is hiding books critical of Trump then he is going to be working overtime pretty soon… All the latest bestsellers seem to be about how incompetent and corrupt the President is…

  13. I love it when you do updates and revisit an old bit. And my kids have a great time with their regular sized version of this book. And Betty is a true librarian.

  14. Well done! Classic liberal response to the problem of this president = continue to give him free publicity. That's for both the person who thought writing this book was a good idea, the library that thinks it's so important to get people to read this book and Colbert who is always airing the president's dirty laundry. That's what complicity looks like. We don't need to see this shit. We need people with brilliant new ideas about about our future!

  15. That Trump tard just got a valuable lesson in why being a worthless person will never pay off. He's probably so angry right now 😀

  16. I like to think the person hiding the books knows that it would make people look up the books/buy them.

    But even more I hope that book gets hidden.

  17. @The Late Show with Stephen Colbert You should donate a large copy to the library in the town President Trump made the comment; New Bern, NC.

  18. Whose Boat is This Boat? my be my favorite book of all time, and I read every night. It's not often you can go to bed with painful stomach cramps from laughing! Sad. (I pre-ordered two when it came out. ☺️)

  19. 😎 It's hard to be my usual cynical self when I see two happy kids hauling a GIANT BOOK to the family car. This might be an "only in America" sort of thing❗ 👏

  20. I have spent many hours in that library and just wanted to say thank you for sending such a wonderful gift too my hometown.

  21. Coming from Idaho…. this is all a bunch of backwards bullshit. If I was the culprit… a smart deceiver… I'd not be hiding these books but planting them in random places for people to find. In order to spread hate of course.

    FUN FACT: libraries tend to categorize their material. The last time Stephen Colbert aired up on this hype, he made it seem like the books we're being hidden in a malicious manner. This episode is no different… just the counterpart of his previous bs.

    FUN FACT! People get played like puppets off of these stupid fake news talk shows.

  22. I think a giant paperback would have been just as difficult to hide while still being light enough that a single child could actually read it.

  23. What a way to destroy one's own effort while ensuring the opposing effort's success.
    Nothing one wouldn't expect from a trump worshiper.

    Living rent free in other people's heads in 3…2…1 Go!

  24. Hi there! I’m a graduate student who’s graduating THIS WEEK as a school librarian! (🎉🎉🎉) Just in the comments to support Betty. Censorship makes the book a must-read for more people. Great job, library thief! Thanks for getting involved in your local library’s reading promotion program 😉

  25. I have been to Coeur D'Alene, Idaho and that library. The area is populated with older people. Most of the ones to whom I spoke were surviving, with difficulty, on Social Security. The local churches and food banks do a good job. Children leave home as soon as the hit maturity. Many residents are survivalists who don't trust our government. Not much to do during the day and nothing but bars open in the evenings. It seemed like a sad place to live.

  26. “Anytime a book is censored, a million more people want to read it. And so- thanks!”. You said it Betty. I'm ordering my copy today. Thanks!

  27. World Central Kitchen is part of The Epstein Crime Map child trafficing.Disaster areas,etc.Part of Pizza gates. Why wouldn't Stephen know this ?

  28. Would a book with nothing but actual quotes from Trump count as "anti-trump"? Because if it does, I wonder what that would mean when he opens his mouth.

  29. Just visited the Coeur d’alene public library and saw the book in its full glory . I took a picture and will send it to you.

  30. Enjoyed this! Immensely!
    Libraries and books have saved me from turning out "totally stupid" on so many topics
    As a child in a town with not much, I learned to entertain myself with many a great book
    As a teacher, I loved to read great books to children(buying them on my own many times just so my students wouldn't be deprived of a great story experience)
    As a mother, I started reading to my child as soon as she could sit and listen (very young)
    She did well academically and is close to completing PhD
    Great job, SC!

  31. The book was a good joke initially, but on the long run I am afraid it has the opposite effect of what was intended. It presents Trump as an a bit stupid but otherwise inoffensive little man. Doing so it deflects readers from seeing the brutal authoritarian threat behind that mask.

  32. I literally can't find the "who's boat is this boat" book anywhere in three different counties I've tried Jackson county, Harrison and George county and in my opinion it's because the few the I guess matter enough to keep failing us mississipians that do not like trump or the what we call the two faced republicans that flip flop every new president they hate what they once loved they are confused literally and we are sick of no change and promises never kept. They skeam for there on selfish financial soul. I know from first hand we hungry down here at the bottom of the map Obama took care of us but now even if you 100% qualify for any of the government aid it doesn't make since and I'm not the only one disabled people going threw disability cases and need food stamps hurt unemployed and a 30 hear old white man who cant seem to get any gov aid because every time at first glimpse and see me then they already have it in there head that I'm lying about something to get some kind of free food stamp handouts or cheat them because there's no way I could need that help bad and my disability from a major accident unemployed again because of it and me my 9 yr old daughter are having to live with my parents wife not interested point is I meet every criteria and I get denied again and again and 98% of Mississippi is hurting just like that.
