Trump doubles down on claim hurricane threatened Alabama


THE WAKE OF THIS CATEGORY 2 HURRICANE.>>Bill: FEDERAL GOVERNMENT NOW READY WITH ITS RESPONSE ON DORIAN. U.S. COAST GUARD ALREADY STEPPING IN TO RESCUE DOZENS IN THE BAHAMAS. WHAT A PLACE THAT HAS BEEN DEVASTATED NOW. THE STORM SLAMMED THAT ISLAND TURNING ITS ATTENTION TO THE SOUTHEAST U.S. COAST. WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT JOHN ROBERTS HAS MORE FROM THE NORTH LAWN THERE. JOHN, GOOD DAY.>>GOOD MORNING. THE U.S. MILITARY ALSO WORKING IN THE BAHAMAS TO TRY TO CLEAR RUNWAYS TO GET RELIEF SUPPLIES INTO THE HARD-HIT AREAS IN GREAT ABACO AND GRAND BA HAMA ISLAND. THE STATE GOVERNORS IN CHARGE OF THE EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT RESPONSE TO ANYTHING THAT A HURRICANE DOES WHEN IT COMES THROUGH. THEY WORK IN CONJUNCTION WITH LOCAL OFFICIALS AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT’S JOB TO BACK UP THE GOVERNORS TO TRY TO GIVE THEM WHATEVER THEY NEED. FEMA WAS WELL PREPARED WE’RE TOLD BY PRESIDENT TRUMP IN PUERTO RICO AND AGAIN IN FLORIDA AS IT LOOKED LIKE DORIAN WAS SETTING ITS SIGHTS ON THAT PART OF THE STATE AND IS NOW REPOSITIONING SUPPLIES TO PREPARE FOR A POSSIBLE LANDING EITHER IN THE NORTHERN PART OF SOUTH CAROLINA OR ALONG THE OUTER BANKS OF NORTH CAROLINA. LISTEN TO WHAT THE ACTING SECRETARY OF HOMELAND SECURITY SAID ABOUT IT.>>WE’VE BEEN VERY WELL PREPARED AND COORDINATED FULLY WITH THE STATES. A LOT OF PRE-EMPLOYED ASSETS TO FULLY RESPOND AFTER THE STORM HITS AND REPOSITIONING SOME OF THE ASSETS THAT WERE FURTHER SOUTH IN CENTRAL FLORIDA. WE’RE READY FOR THIS STORM.>>AT THE SAME TIME IT’S CHURNING IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN. THE PRESIDENT CONTINUES TO DEFEND A TWEET HE SENT OUT SUNDAY MORNING WHERE HE SAID ALABAMA COULD POSSIBLY GET DAMAGE FROM DORIAN. ALABAMA WOULD BE HIT OR GRAZED AND DORIAN TOOK A DIFFERENT PLAN ALONG THE EAST COAST. THE FAKE NEWS KNOWS THIS WELL. A BIT OF CONTROVERSY ERUPTED OVER IT. AT THE HURRICANE BRIEFING THE PRESIDENT HELD UP A GRAPHIC FROM LAST FRIDAY THE 30th WHICH APPEARED TO HAVE BEEN MODIFIED WITH A SHARPY TO EXTEND THE BUBBLE OUT THERE TO INCLUDE THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE AND PARTS OF ALABAMA. THE PRESIDENT WAS ASKED HOW THE LINE GOT THERE YESTERDAY AFTERNOON.>>President Trump: THE ORIGINAL PATH WAS THROUGH FLORIDA. PROBABLY THREE DAYS. I THINK THAT’S PROBABLY THREE OR FOUR DAYS OLD. THE ORIGINAL PATH MOST PEOPLE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE TAKING WAS THROUGH FLORIDA WHERE ON THE RIGHT WOULD HAVE BEEN GEORGIA OR ALABAMA.>>IT LOOKS LIKE THERE WAS A SHARPY.>>I DON’T KNOW.>>THE PRESIDENT SAYING HE DIDN’T KNOW HOW THE LINE GOT THERE AND TWEETED OUT A GRAPHIC OF HURRICANE MODEL PLOTS TO PROVE THAT ALABAMA WAS AT RISK AND SOME TRACKS DID COME VERY CLOSE TO THE EASTERN PART OF ALABAMA. BUT THOSE SPAGHETTI MODELS WERE FROM THURSDAY, AUGUST 28th. BY THE TIME THE PRESIDENT TWEETED ABOUT ALABAMA AT 10:51 A.M. ON SUNDAY THE FORECAST TRACK HAD MOVED WELL EAST. THE 8:00 IN THE MORNING WARNING ON SUNDAY THE 1st AND YOU CAN SEE THEY’RE INDICATING THAT DORIAN WOULD STAY WELL-OFF SHORE AND WELL AWAY FROM ALABAMA. SOME PEOPLE ARE SUGGESTING BY ALTERING A FORECAST MAP THE PRESIDENT BROKE A FEDERAL LAW. LET’S NOT FORGET THAT’S AN OLD MAP. IT WASN’T A CURRENT FORECAST. THAT MAY BE A HARD CASE TO MAKE. BUT I THINK WHAT WE REALLY NEED TO STRESS IN ALL OF THIS, BILL, A LOT OF PEOPLE, A LOT OF PROPERTY IN HARM’S WAY AND THERE IS A LOT FOR THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT LOCAL AND STATE

  1. Behold, the "stable genius"! Maybe if he wasn't so busy golfing he could keep up with the current predictions. Kind of funny too considering he bitched about Obama golfing then claimed that he'd be too busy working to golf as much.🤔

  2. Instead of being concerned about hurricane victims the Fake News media is more concerned about whether Trump was right or wrong about the hurricane hitting Alabama lol!

  3. Don’t be fooled, this guy #45 is not one of us. He’s not working 3 jobs to put a roof over his head or put food on the table for his family. He does not represent me or the thousands like me that are working our asses off just to survive.

  4. So who knows for 100% sure on what the President was briefed? If he was told Alabama was possible, he made no mistake. What exactly is an "official" forecast map that must have been changed every 15 minutes for the last week? The democrats and MSM should focus on the blood bath happening in Chicago everyday or all the mistakes they make in reporting the news and yes, that includes the weather reports.

  5. If the President of the United States says that all the indications are that the hurricane will hit Alabama, then it will hit Alabama 100%. Are you calling the President a liar? Why would he lie about something like that? The President never lies!

  6. The storm path and the print media were acting against each other. Storm took it's path. Print media took it's path. Definitely there will be change and difference. Was print media misleading the hurricane path? Suppose🤔

  7. Jesus Christ lord come and get me from this evil world, I dont belong here I never voted I dont mess with politics. For everyone is no longer in truth but lies, and they lie to there self so they feel better, everyone hates eachother no more love, take me now are let my body lay to the grave it grieves my soul filthy folly language is now ok but it crushes my soul, may you turn the good back to good and evil back to evil are get me for if I was a stillborn child it would have been better then to live in a world of evil dwellings I'm washed in your blood I drink and your flesh I eat to live but the skys are graying and the moon has shifted to the west the woman has give the birth to the sun in the stars of heaven. may the the quarter left be spent quickly for your return, Jesus,yeshua Christ have mercy on them all

  8. Only a child would doctor a chart like that. The president is a moron – sorry to say, but no intelligent person would try to pass that stunt off as real. Hell, if you are dumb enough to try to mark it with a sharpie, at least try to make it look like an actual hurricane forecast… instead of the cone getting wider the dope drew a little bubble veering off towards Alabama. That's embarrassing.

  9. Can you imagine of Joe Biden took a Sharpie to pretend Alabama was in the cone. Hannity would still be talking how incompetent he was and he shouldn't be president. But since his king did it, crickets.

  10. Ironically CBS morning news featured Colbert saying "just let it go." They should do the same and stop embarrassing themselves looking as if they've never seen forecasts. But then, they aren't in the "flyover" southeast to care or watch for a storm anyway.

  11. He should of gotten the latest forecast before speaking, he didn't. So instead of admitting it he fights it blaming the media on his old map and going on a hissy fit on Twitter about t it. Move the hell on trump, no wonder so many people don't want you as President. Your own ego is more important to you than trying to admit what happen and moving on. Your showing a map of the storm going into the Gulf of Mexico while people on the southeast coast are preparing for a cat 4 or 5 storm at that time.

  12. He made a mistake show me a leftist that hasn't ever said anything wrong oh wait you can't it gets covered up nothing to see here folks give me a break

  13. Our president has said multiple times that he never heard of a category 5. It would be hard to believe if there weren't several videos of him saying this. Then, he wants to predict the weather? This alone should cause him to be removed from office due to incompetency.

  14. Good thing Trump cancelled his trip to Poland or else how would he have time to disgrace himself on Twitter between all the golf?

  15. Here's all you need to know. Trump has been called " a f*cking moron, an idiot, a child, an empty vessel, a dope and a man of limited cognitive ability." And that's just by the people who he personally hired to work for him. Are you trumptards convinced yet? Probably not. LOL!!!

  16. Jesus , this was no big deal when it started off a simple tweet. You were wrong own it no one would care but now it's devolved into a character study.

    This man is not fit to be president , who the f does this

    Why are we not talking 25th, he is clearly out of his mind

  17. Yeah, let's continue to put all your energy into defending false information by rambling and tweeting incoherently.

    Let's focus all our intention on the poor places where the Hurricane MIGHT HAVE hit two weeks ago.

    Let's alter official NWS maps with a sharpie so that even the dumbest of all fools knows that the President is the stupidest man in power anywhere on the planet.

    I bet crooked Hillary and foreign national Obama would have wasted their precious time by actually caring about the places where the Hurricane DOES hit. Stupid them.

  18. Get the Attorney General on this quickly to clear Trump's name. Find out who did the Sharpie marks to extend the cone. Get Giuliani on the case right away. Maybe former White House worker.comey snuck into the White House and did this he can be charged on this I'm sure. Of course you know I'm being sarcastic I'm sure

  19. On a serious note I hope everyone in the Bahamas get all the help they need quickly. I hope they find their loved ones and I hope they find them safe. I have only visited the island once and that was and that was in Nassau Bahamas. What a beautiful place. I feel so sad for all the islands that were destroyed. I am looking for the best way to help in my own personal way. Also sending my prayers that God will help I know he will in his own way and in his own timing. I also pray for the people who everywhere have been affected by this storm my prayers and in my own way I will try to help.

  20. I know President Trump that you said you'd read the Bible from cover to cover. But may I remind you of a certain couple of verses that you may want to re-read and understand at this certain time Matthew 5:44 through 47

  21. And remember President Trump what the Bible says that God knows exactly what's in your heart and the reason why you do the things that you do and the reason we all do what we do the motives behind the things that we do. Vengeance belongs to God he will put his enemies under his footstool. Vengeance to other countries to hurt them to get your way is actually not working. I think maybe you should pray more and get God's guidance on what you should do. And if you are praying with a prayer team maybe you should fire your prayer team and get new spiritual guidance in the White House.

  22. Why did he not just say, hey, I made a mistake? Why is that such a big deal for him? Most of our presidents have admitted to making mistakes at one time or another.

  23. You watch pretty soon President Trump is going to say no reporter or photographer from The Washington Post is ever to set foot on the White House again

  24. What is the purpose of saying something that is easily proven wrong ? Oh well that's his presidency in a nutshell and he's the nut

  25. What is so crucial about a sharpie marking? How old is this federal law, maybe trump could just do away w/ it. Same as Gavin newsome did in California? 🚨

  26. Tremendously big and tremendously wet! Only way to stop it is with a nuke on Alabama. Maybe we can push it back away and save lives. A+ for me on my good plan.

  27. No no no you guys don't get it the reason why he's doing this is doing this because he sincerely believes and knows that there are some stupid ignorant unintelligent people out there who will see that and believe what he's saying and those are the people he's trying to get to those other people right now that are believed that Alabama has a problem they're running to the grocery store right now getting milk getting groceries Trust me.
    Proof that this guy is nuts .

  28. Hey Alabama make sure to stock up before the hurricane, don’t forget your id though otherwise they won’t serve you groceries.

  29. Commander Clueless has fired off NINE TWEETS defending his blatantly false statement concerning Dorian hitting Alabama. Talk about a childish little brat. Rex was right!

  30. Then what would have happened if the hurricane had not changed directions? And how would Alabama not have been affected by it with it being so close? Since the hurricane changed directions, how do we know Trump whether or not Trump was right or wrong?

  31. When is everyone else going to admit that the current occasional resident of the White House is dilutional and unfit for office?

  32. Why is this storm heading towards NY? Wasn't it NY that wished this storm on the Trump resting place in Fl, .? Someone is telling me that God will NOT be mocked and he protects his own . and punish the haters that hate Gods people .

  33. So this is what the president is doing….. rather than concentrating all his effort on helping those that are ACTUALLY going to or have already been affected by this hurricane.

    The most powerful man in the world has the mind of a 10 year old.

  34. Who cares????? I think the Trump-haters were upset because his administration was trying to be proactive about the incoming destruction, so they found something that they could bark about. A map? Everyone knows that hurricanes are unpredictable, so placing southern Alabama in the path of concern is no big deal. Did someone make a mistake by giving him a map from last week…….sure. Does it deserve all this reporting……NO! Should Trump apologize?………Why would he? He doesn't apologize for anything, and in this political climate…..he probably shouldn't. That's why so many like him. They want someone that is unapologetic. The left criticizing him for being unapologetic is like the pot calling the kettle black. Very few in our society are apologetic………and the ones who are, typically only apologize in very personal private situations. Who cares about this map? I don't because I literally do not have the time to!!!!

  35. I doubt any Alabamans, or anyone else for that matter, were misled by Trump's gaffe. I mean is there ANYONE who takes his tweets seriously?

  36. Trump wasn't entirely wrong about what he said. He was just a couple of days behind the most current forecast. The problem I have with it, is he can't just say "yea, Alabama was no longer in danger when I made that remark, sorry Alabama for the scare." Is it really that hard to do. He keeps all this stuff going himself because his ego won't let him move on to more important things. How many months did he obsess about the crowd size at his inauguration? We've got too many issues as a country to worry instead of having to stroke this guy's ego.

  37. Um, it seems Mr. Trump may have made a very foolish mistake. I just saw a CNN video with the meteorologist fellow including Alabama in the places that were under threat . . Did he fail to head his own many warnings about that fake news source?? I say there needs to be an investigation, to determine if the Pres. is loosing his mind!! ; )

  38. Anyone who cannot admit a mistake is unfit to be president. It means that no decision, no matter how reckless, will lead to a mistake in his mind. Trump really is the main villain from Stephen King’s “The Dead Zone”
