Dumbass Fake President alters weather bureau map to put Alabama in danger

❝ The President of the United States altered a National Hurricane Center map with a sharpie to falsely extend the official forecast toward Alabama so he didn’t have to admit he was wrong in a tweet.

❝ Trump predicted in a tweet that the storm was going to hit Alabama when there were no projections that it was going to happen, but since some of Trump’s biggest supporters are in Alabama, he had to pretend like he was saving them from danger.

He’s obviously confident that his loyal supporters are as dumb as any corrupt political hack could wish for.

    “And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed – if all records told the same tale — then the lie passed into history and became truth. Who controls the past,’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past. And yet the past, though of its nature alterable, never had been altered. Whatever was true now was true from everlasting to everlasting. It was quite simple. All that was needed was an unending series of victories over your own memory. ‘Reality control’, they called it: in Newspeak, ‘doublethink’.”

    “Altering official government weather forecasts isn’t just a cause for concern — it’s illegal. Per 18 U.S. Code § 2074, which addresses false weather reports, “Whoever knowingly issues or publishes any counterfeit weather forecast or warning of weather conditions falsely representing such forecast or warning to have been issued or published by the Weather Bureau, United States Signal Service, or other branch of the Government service, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ninety days, or both.”
    That law applies to what is now known as NOAA’s National Weather Service, which contains the National Hurricane Center. https://www.washingtonpost.com/weather/2019/09/04/president-trump-shows-doctored-hurricane-chart-was-it-cover-up-alabama-twitter-flub/

    “Fox News Rejects Trump’s Altered Dorian Map, Says Alabama ‘Never Part of Official Forecast'” https://www.newsweek.com/fox-news-rejects-trumps-altered-dorian-map-says-alabama-never-part-official-forecast-1457768

    When asked by a reporter whether he drew the extension on with a Sharpie, Trump replied, “I don’t know, I don’t know.”

    Fox News’ Juan Williams, whom the president has repeatedly criticized over the past few months, strongly rebuked Trump’s seemingly altered map during a discussion on “The Five”. “I’ll tell you what concerned me,” the Fox News personality said, “the idea that the president of the United States, someone we are supposed to trust to give us accurate information when lives are at stake, is using his Sharpie to extend the reach of this storm to Alabama so that he’s not wrong in what he was saying a week ago.”

    The internal response and email traffic provides a window into just how much President Trump can upend the functions of a government in the midst of a crisis—all in the service of satisfying his pet grievances or fleeting fixation of the moment [links].
