The inspector general’s report examined the aftermath of Mr. Trump’s insistence that Hurricane Dorian was headed toward Alabama, which National Weather Service forecasters in Alabama contradicted. It found a politicized process.

The report from the Commerce Dept. Inspector General declares that the statement - which backed President Trump's erroneous claim that Alabama had been in Hurricane Dorian's path - could have far-reaching implications discrediting public trust in the NWS.

The Department of Commerce is preventing the release of an investigation’s findings into whether it coerced the head of a federal agency into supporting President Trump’s erroneous claim that Hurricane Dorian would hit Alabama

How many hours have been spent at this point, by senior staff at major federal agencies, trying to protect the president from being told he was wrong about Hurricane Dorian hitting Alabama?

The Commerce Department is impeding findings into whether it coerced the top NOAA official to support President Trump’s inaccurate claim that Dorian would hit Alabama, the department’s inspector general said.

An investigation into the Commerce Department over its pressure on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration into backing Trump’s claim that Hurricane Dorian would severely hit Alabama in 2019 has ended, revealing that the department is to blame

After the National Weather Service’s Birmingham, Alabama, office contradicted Trump’s Sharpie fable that Hurricane Dorian threatened the state, the agency overseeing the office put out a statement backing the president over the scientists.

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.....

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

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 ⁩

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!

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."

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....

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)

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.

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.

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.)
