The Late Show With Stephen Colbert revealed Thursday that Whose Boat Is This Boat? Comments That Don’t Help in the Aftermath of a Hurricane — a book put together by the show’s staff — had reached a milestone. (Complete with illustrations, the work uses direct quotes to mock Donald Trump for flippant or irrelevant comments he made while visiting victims of Hurricane Florence in North Carolina.)
Whose Boat Is This Boat became available for presale in September and quickly reached No. 1 on Amazon. All proceeds go directly to charities providing aid for those affected by hurricanes Florence and Michael — and those charities are about to get a whole lot of money.
“Through the generosity of you good people buying this book, Whose Boat Is This Boat? has raised $1 million,” Colbert exclaimed. “Boom!”
For those looking to give the gift of great literature this holiday season, Colbert has you covered.
“If you haven’t gotten your copy yet, it makes the perfect stocking stuffer,” Colbert said. “If you happen to have a very large, rectangular stocking.”
