You can’t make this stuff up people. Trump is like the buffoon villain character from an Adam Sandler movie.

He added a fake hurricane track on the hurricane map with a fucking magic marker, people. And called a press conference to show it off and pass it off as real. Just to cover up for being wrong on a TWEET.

HOW DO YOU NOT SEE THIS MAN IS NOT SANE??

Trump shows fake hurricane map in apparent bid to validate incorrect tweet

Trump points to map with black loop extending hurricane’s path
President made baseless claim that Alabama would be affected
Donald Trump’s map from a hurricane briefing on Wednesday bizarrely had a Sharpie loop expanding the path.
To the annals of American political scandal, we must now add Sharpiegate.

In the Oval Office at lunchtime on Wednesday, Donald Trump held a briefing on Hurricane Dorian. At one point, the president held up a National Hurricane Center (NHC) map from 29 August, displaying the hurricane’s track and intensity.

Bizarrely, someone had apparently used a Sharpie, a kind of marker pen, to add a black loop falsely extending the hurricane’s path from Florida to Alabama. It was apparently a belated effort to justify Trump’s previous baseless claim that the latter state could be affected.

The hamfisted, homespun addition triggered uproar on social media and a frenzy of speculation over whether the president himself, or perhaps some lackey eager to impress, was responsible.

Altering official government weather forecasts is against the law.

Trump denied all knowledge. According to the Washington Post, when he was asked about the doctored map later on Wednesday, Trump said his briefings had included a “95% chance probability” that Alabama would be hit.

Asked if the chart had been drawn on, he insisted: “I don’t know, I don’t know.”

Aerial footage from Bahamas shows Hurricane Dorian destruction – video
Over the weekend, as Dorian bore down on and then brutally struck the Bahamas, the president issued a torrent of tweets. One mistakenly warned that Alabama would be impacted, potentially spreading panic.

Just 20 minutes later, the National Weather Service in Birmingham, Alabama, tweeted: “Alabama will NOT see any impacts from #Dorian. We repeat, no impacts from Hurricane #Dorian will be felt across Alabama. The system will remain too far east.”

But Trump is not one to admit he was wrong, whether over crowd sizes or how much of his border wall has been built.

In his Oval Office remarks, the president argued that on the “original chart”, Dorian was going to hit Florida directly “and that would have affected a lot of other states”.

“But that was the original chart,” he said.

The original NHC map, showing the probable path of the storm, can still be seen online.

Some saw the episode as the latest in the Trump administration’s war on reality. Bill Kristol, the director of Defending Democracy Together and a conservative critic of Trump, posted sarcastically: “Who among us hasn’t altered a National Hurricane Center forecast with a Sharpie?”

On Wednesday night, apparently stung by the criticism, Trump tweeted another hurricane map. This one showed numerous, multicoloured lines projecting the path of Dorian. Some of the lines reach into Alabama. The map has a “South Florida Water Management District” logo in the bottom corner.

The president wrote: “This was the originally projected path of the Hurricane in its early stages. As you can see, almost all models predicted it to go through Florida also hitting Georgia and Alabama. I accept the Fake News apologies!”

But the map is dated 28 August at 08.06 EDT. Trump sent his tweet about Alabama on 1 September, by which time forecasts made clear it was not in danger.

The map also clearly carries the disclaimer: “NHC advisories and county emergency statements supersede this product. This graphic should complement, not replace, NHC discussions.”

What “set up” are you referring to?

When I first saw the still photo I assumed it was a prop he made as a joke at his own expense to get some laughs about accidentally saying Alabama. But it appears not to be the case. His people literally and ridiculously drew a fake path with a magic marker to protect his ego from tweet-gaffe. It’s absurd.

It's also illegal. But the Trumpians will let it slide, because 'lefties'.

Wouldn't it be awesome if he got impeached for the crime of writing on a weather forecast with a black crayon? :lol: That would be the cherry on top of this inept administration.

Which counterfeit forecast are you imagining you saw? I think you're doing that Prog thing where you reimagine a definition for convenience sakes.

The representation of the for real weather forecast below is not a "counterfeit." There is no intent to deceive. It is what it appears to be. A representation of an actual weather forecast.

Be honest. You're just doing this again Image and hoping to pray on the gullible.

Those who aren't are just shaking their heads and thinking, 'there they go again.'

On August 28th NOAA was projecting a path that could lead the storm across Florida, into the Gulf, and north to Alabama, Mississippi, and/or Louisiana.

Is the President always kept a week in the past?

That is about as disturbing as it gets. The person that is making your calls, when the chips are down, is never up to speed with the current data.

That is terrifying as fuck!

For example....

Five days, technically.

The updated Guardian article tells us this below is the original National Hurricane Center photo from August 29.

So I'm thinking the Progressives want to modify their hysteria from "Counterfeit" and illegal to 5 days out of date and requires more current data from aides.

Oh...and you can stop pulling your hair out about that "magic marker" nonsense, little proggies. You'll see it's on both photos from the NHC.
