What it was like for the meteorologists in Alabama who contradicted the president about Hurricane Dorian: “You try to navigate these tricky waters that science people are not used to navigating. What do you do in situations like this?”

The Fake News Media was fixated on the fact that I properly said, at the beginnings of Hurricane Dorian, that in addition to Florida & other states, Alabama may also be grazed or hit. They went Crazy, hoping against hope that I made a mistake (which I didn’t). Check out maps.....

Alabama was going to be hit or grazed, and then Hurricane Dorian took a different path (up along the East Coast). The Fake News knows this very well. That’s why they’re the Fake News!

In the early days of the hurricane, when it was predicted that Dorian would go through Miami or West Palm Beach, even before it reached the Bahamas, certain models strongly suggested that Alabama & Georgia would be hit as it made its way through Florida & to the Gulf....

On Fri., Trump got a briefing on Dorian and was shown this projected path (left). On Sun., Trump tweeted Ala. would be among states "most likely [to] be hit" (NWS said that wasn't correct) Today, Trump showed the same map — but looks like someone added Alabama to the track.

He personally altered it? Himself? "After facing ridicule for suggesting over the weekend that Hurricane Dorian might strike Alabama, Donald Trump showed reporters a map on Wednesday that he personally altered to help prove his point."

The White House was directly involved in pressing NOAA to repudiate the weather forecasters who contradicted Trump’s claim that Hurricane Dorian would probably strike Alabama. @LFFriedman  @cflav ⁩

Breaking News: The Secretary of Commerce threatened to fire top employees at NOAA after after the agency’s Birmingham office disputed President Trump’s claim that Hurricane Dorian might hit Alabama

NOAA warned its own staff not to contradict Trump on Hurricane Dorian and Alabama — on *the facts.* An agency built on science and data purges science and data. This is how good government decays when it’s compromised by a cult of personality.

This is NOAA’s map archive of Dorian as it headed toward the US. As you can see the forecast does not show the storm threatening Alabama on Sept. 1, the day Trump sent his false tweet. (You can watch the map in motion below)

Reporter just asked Trump about the map: "It looked like someone took a Sharpie...." Trump: "I don't know. I don't know." (But Potus insists several times that Alabama was in the Dorian's path despite evidence to contrary.)
