Bwahahahahahahahaha that poor clown rooibozo crashes again. Be assured the dumbass will never learn. His case of TDS is terminal. One disaster after another but the clown plough straight on!!!!!!!!!! ha ha ha smiley

President Donald Trump spent the last couple of days showing maps that indicated Hurricane Dorian's path could include Alabama. On Friday evening, the national agency that gives weather advisories defended his claim. Moreover, the president tweeted a video showing a CNN meteorologist explaining how during the initial reports of Dorian's path that some states in the Gulf of Mexico could possibly be affected.

First, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued a statement that said Dorian's original predicted path did include Alabama.

An unnamed NOAA spokesperson said that between Aug. 28 and Sept. 2, "information provided by NOAA and the National Hurricane Center to President Trump and the wider public demonstrated that tropical-storm-force winds from Hurricane Dorian could impact Alabama."

NOAA went on to say the National Weather Service tweet on Sunday morning "spoke in absolute terms that were inconsistent with probabilities from the best forecast products available at the time."

About the same time NOAA claimed the president was correct, Trump tweeted a video from CNN that shows a meteorologist say Dorian could cross into the Gulf of Mexico, in which south Alabama borders along with Florida and Mississippi. The video is edited to show the CNN meteorologist repeat the word "Alabama" several times. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA 

Hurricane Dorian strengthened into a powerful and deadly Category 5 storm before making landfall three separate times in the Bahamas beginning on Sunday. That same day, the president tweeted "In addition to Florida – South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama, will most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated."

Twenty minutes after Trump's tweet, the National Weather Service in Birmingham, Alabama tweeted that its state would not feel impacts.

"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," NWS Birmingham wrote.

Media outlets began ridiculing the president about the Alabama claim, and it escalated when he began showing maps of Dorian's projected path outlined in black, with an extended area outlined in white that engulfed the entire Florida peninsula and then another addendum drawn in black that clipped part of southeastern Alabama, just north of the Florida panhandle.

At that point, the #Sharpiegate hashtag exploded on Twitter, and every news outlet poked fun of the president; even Fox News downplayed his maps. Still, Trump stood by his claims of the storm once being projected to affect Alabama.

And on Friday afternoon, NOAA issued its statement that stood by the president.

Dorian is responsible for at least 30 deaths in the Bahamas and three more in the United States. After leaving the Bahamas, Dorian moved westward toward Florida and crept up the east coast before making landfall on the U.S. mainland Friday morning as a Category 1 storm when it hit North Carolina.

Dorian is still moving up the east coast, and states as far north as Massachusetts are under tropical storm advisories. Dorian was still a Category 1 storm Friday evening with winds greater than 85 mph.

Good news abounds for President Donald Trump. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said Friday he doesn’t “at all” expect the U.S. to enter a recession. The border wall is steadily going up as defense funds are actually being used for national defense. Mexico is paying to stop illegal border crossing. Trade talks with China are resuming.

Therefore, as my colleague Mike LaChance noted, the American press has to gin-up anti-Trump sentiment any way they can. So reporters beclowned themselves by focusing on a sharpie-altered map projecting the path of Hurricane Dorian. Forget the fact that the professional maps were initially wrong as well or that none of the “expert” forecasters predicted Dorian would stall over the Bahamas and stay-off the Florida coast.

What the press did not count on was Trump’s tenacious defense of the addition, and the fact that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) would release a statement supporting the President.

I saw a video somewhere (Twitchy maybe?) of some Dorian report on CNN in which they clearly talk about the possibility of Alabama being hit by the hurricane.

But attacking Trump takes priority over truth and pretty much everything. Even over people’s safety.
The NOAA people did the right thing this time.

It’s so great to have a President who fights back.

Sometimes ya just gotta laugh…Sharpie-gate, indeed.

They made fools of themselves again..Meanwhile, the twitterverse is having some fun:

The anti-Trump forces are losing. They know they are losing. And, they are grasping at ANY straw to make the President look bad and cover their own butts,

The President tweeted that Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas and Alabama were at potential risk on 09/01. At that time the NHC had moved the potential track for Dorian to a grazing path north along the east coast of Florida. The predicted chances of Dorian impacting Alabama were almost non-existent at that time. Trump’s comment was supported by NHC advisories and graphics from 2-3 days earlier. It may have been stale, but not false. The NWS office in Birmingham Alabama, possibly in an effort to assuage fears among local Alabama residents, issued a statement that, at that time, Alabama was not thought to be at risk, the track having been moved to the east coast of Florida. This is understandable.
so far, no problem.

Enter the media. The media immediately screams that Trump is out of touch with the Dorian situation and possibly lying. I know that the Dorian situation was important to the media, they were hyping it continually, but the President has more on his plate than watching every single second of Dorian coverage. So, it should not be a huge surprise if he is not entirely up to date on the latest guess by the NHC as to the path Dorian will take. But, it was an opportunity to criticize Trump. So, Trump does what he always does, he punches back. he produces a NHC graphic, from 08/29 which, if the track is extended the center of Dorian would directly impact Alabama. Even if the storm turned north, as a Cat 1 or 2 storm, there was a good chance that Alabama would experience TS force winds. So, Trump was not lying. How can the media cover its own butt? By making a big deal out of an arcing line drawn on the graphic. Now, this line is totally irrelevant to whether Trump lied. It is a diversion. But, the media dragged the Alabama office of the NWS into the situation and pitted it against its ultimate boss, without any attempt to place the whole thing into context.

So, the leadership of NOAA, of which the NWS and the NHC are part, steps up and states, truthfully, that the information provided by the President was not necessarily in error. They did not claim that the information provided, at the time, by the Birmingham NWS office was inaccurate. They explained it by saying that the information provided by the Birmingham NWS office was based upon the assertion that the current track was absolute and would not change in the future. At that time, Dorian wa stationary over Grand Bahama Island, and the proposed track was dependent upon a northward turn, which had not occurred. Now, if anyone should know that weather prediction is not an exact science, it should be meteorologists. If we executed meteorologists for weather predictions which were inaccurate, there wouldn’t be a single meteorologist living.

Actually, Trump’s comment was supported by current NOAA advisories, AT THE TIME HE MADE IT.

This was an egregious falsehood on the part of Democrats and the Media.

If you look at the comment Trump made while holding the “doctored” map, you will see he said nothing about Alabama being hit by a hurricane. Only that “a little piece of Alabama” MAY be affected by the storm.

That statement was 100% correct, at the time he made it and for more than 24 hours AFTER he made it.

You can see here how long Alabama was forecasted to be in the Tropical Storm Winds zone.

NHC advisories did not support the interpretation of Trump’s 09/01 statement to mean that Alabama was likely to get hit by TS force winds. The tracks were firmly off the east coast of Florida, by that time, and even the link that you provided showed 0% likelihood of TS force winds anywhere in Alabama. Now, this was all nothing more that a potential forecast of Dorian’s movement. It could have changed, again, and swung west into Florida, where, if it penetrated deeply enough, TS force winds could have occurred in Alabama. So, more than likely, Trumps information was stale. However, his information was not in anyway harmful to anyone. The local Birmingham NWS office corrected for local conditions. Trump never called them on it or criticized them for it. The kerfuffle was all the doing of the Media. Trump offered an explanation for his statement based upon a NHC from 08/29 showing a potential track for Dorian, which if it had progressed beyond the shaded cone, would have intersected Alabama. This made the media look foolish and triggered Sharpiegate as a diversion. Now, the media is trying to foment discord within NOAA. And, all over nothing.

Seems rooibozo and his gimps have lost their voices.


Sep 08, 2019, 17:34

“The anonymous and disingenuous statement NOAA tweeted out is a major breach of scientific integrity that damages the NWS and stains the agency’s leadership.”

The lengths that Bozo and his Gimps will go to try and pretend he didn't make an embarrassing blunder is nothing short of incredible . . . as is the stupidity of Trumpanzees still clutching at straws to try and back their egg-faced hero.

Sep 08, 2019, 18:24

These are anti Trump noodles  are losing their minds. Hahahaha. FANCY being called out like this. 

How utterly embarrassing. That will doubtless shut up the fake news media. :D libtard heads exploding yet again. Hilarious! 

Well I guess it's onto the next bit of fake news dished up by Mr Gullible himself once more. Or how about rehashing.Trump getting two scoops of ice cream. Man that was so newsworthy! 

Enjoy the EGG!!!!!

Sep 08, 2019, 18:28

Hearty thanks for CNN  saying what Trump said. 

Rooibozo read what the bloggers said. No use keeping your head buried in the sand oak! :D

Sep 08, 2019, 19:40

The insane reaction to a possible gaffe by POTUS is the real issue. The haters will jump on anything.  Childish idiocy to the extreme. 

Sep 08, 2019, 19:49

Draad there was no gaffe. Trump was 100% correct yet again!

Here again is more Evidence! Go to thvs lvnk see the charts and what the Alabama Guard did.

These people are very sick liars and must be condemned as such!


Alabama Guard Prepared for Hit By Hurricane Dorian – Trump Proven Right Again

Sep 10, 2019, 08:52

And so the truth comes out. Here is the real reason the NOAA caved and suddenly supported Bozo's ignorant lie.

Again, it's not the fact that Bozo said something stupid . . . we're used to that . . . it's the lengths that this vain, conceited and profoundly stupid man will go to to pretend he was right when everyone in the world bar the gibbering and fawning Trumpanzees can see that he screwed up.

Bozo was prepared to fire senior employees at NOAA . . . to put decent hard-working men out of a job . . . just to validate his stupid and ignorant blunder. This is the kind of narcissitic fool that only stupid and brainwashed people could possibly worship.

Sep 10, 2019, 17:46

Nope you blithering drooling loon.

CNN reported exactly what Trump did. The information was correct at the time Trump spoke about it.

You obsessed desperation is making an abject clown of you, not of course for the first time. Do you like looking like a loon, making a spectacle of yourself day by day.
