Trump gets trapped up on Alabama lie: "I don't know, I don't know, I don't know" (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump was asked about the National Weather Service map from earlier today that appeared to have been doctored with a black sharpie.
Trump again maintained that Alabama was in the original forecast even though the Birmingham office of the NWS issued a correction of Trump on Sunday saying the state was always in the clear.
He says that his first briefings showed a "95 percent chance probability" that Alabama would be hit.
Trump provided an "update" to the nation from the Oval Office on Wednesday brandishing an old, outdated map that showed the sharpie marks in black, marks that do not appear on these kinds of maps.
The video differs from a photo taken of Trump when he received his original briefing on Hurricane Dorian. Look, there's no sharpie in this image (below).
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration head Neil Jacobs appears in the photo while speaking to the president.
The photo was taken from an official White House photo on their Flickr account.
It's their own photo. How dumb can they be?
When Trump was pressed on this, all he could say was "I don't know, I don't know, I don't know," after trying to defend himself in a lengthy explanation. That's a total of three times.
The truth is, Alabama was never included in the original forecast, let alone "95% probability."
Trump is not backing away from this one, though. He's doubling down just like he did with the Stormy Daniels hush-payments and everything else in his administration when he's caught in a stone-cold screw up.
