Emperor Trump has traded the fiddle for a set of golf clubs, but it's the same thing.

But wouldn't you think that he'd want to see what a formerly Cat 5 hurricane is like, since he said he didn't think he'd ever heard of such a thing.... Newsflash -- there have been four since he took office. And a few years ago there was that little thing called Katrina....
