At the time, it seemed to reflect Trump's brand of playfulness.

More than 1,100 roads were still closed across North Carolina, Cooper said, including several portions of interstates 40 and 95.

It was dry outside, but the president was surrounded by obvious signs of water damage, such as piles of broken furniture and debris lining the sides of the road and boats that are shipwrecked a couple hundred feet inland.
