Trump alters hurricane map with a sharpie so he doesn't have to admit he was wrong (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump gave an "update" on Hurricane Dorian on Wednesday from the Oval Office.
He shows off an official Hurricane Center map that is clearly altered by a black sharpie in order to somehow prove that he wasn't wrong for saying Alabama should prepare for the storm.
He has been taking a lot of flack for falsely stating on several occasions that Alabama would be hit.
The move prompted the Birmingham office of the National Weather Service to issue a correction almost immediately:
Trump still maintains that it was "possible" for Dorian to veer towards the Gulf of Mexico, thereby putting Alabama at risk, but that's a lie because the NWS already stated with certainty that wasn't going to happen.
Oh, and the sharpie is as clear as day. All Hurricane Center maps feature the white outline, and none of them have the additional black line. So, if Trump didn't draw it on there himself, he had someone else do it for him.
You just can't make this stuff up. See below.
Also, why is Trump giving an update to the nation with an outdated map? Was the entire intent of the update to just make himself look better? That's not what the nation cares about right now. There is still a hurricane on the eastern seaboard of the United States. Perhaps, focus on that?
So far, Dorian has killed 7 people in the Bahamas and is off Florida's coast right now moving north into the Carolina's going at an extremely slow pace.
