Look closely at the photo attached. It shows the dumbest, perhaps most childishly ludicrous presidential act in decades. Breaking news from both NBC and the WaPo, the White House issued a photograph of Trump holding a map of the hurricane path, only the map in the photograph is clearly altered by a sharpie, showing the hurricane possibly … you guessed it, going into Alabama. The President of the United States altered a National Hurricane Center map with a sharpie to falsely extend the official forecast toward Alabama so he didn't have to admit he was wrong in a tweet. https://t.co/i0CJcYV4yq pic.twitter.com/pR57IL6WfT — Dennis Mersereau (@wxdam) September 4, 2019 This looks like something done by a fourth grader caught cheating. It doesn’t even LOOK professionally doctored. After days of claiming without evidence that Alabama was projected to be hit by Hurricane Dorian, President Donald Trump displayed an apparently doctored map in the Oval Office on Wednesday that showed Alabama to be within the storm’s path. The map Trump displayed was the same as a model produced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration last week showing the hurricane’s projected path cutting through central Florida— with one key difference. Where the original projection ended, a smaller, black circle that appeared to be drawn in Sharpie was produced to include Alabama in the model. Look at the image closely, you can just see the “black” area added to the end of the “white” that is clearly in the original. Now that you have seen the “doctored” image, recall the real one, still easily found on the net: This is so fucking humiliating!! How small a man do you have to be to NOT LET IT GO!! He actually had someone – or he did it himself – take a SHARPIE and alter a map in order to somehow “prove” he was right all along, when everyone, literally everyone, knows he is lying. This is plainly evidence that Trump is decompensating. Not only is it demonstrative as to just how low Trump is willing to go, it shows a complete and total lack of respect for the American people. It did not take five minutes for regular people, never mind the media, to know that Trump doctored the photo. He is clearly insane. He must be impeached. A man who is willing to go to this lengths, a sharpie to a map, all to simply get around a tiny “mistake” is actually not funny, it is damned dangerous. It is more than a “slip up” it is a window into the soul of someone who cannot lead a nation with nuclear weapons. Right now, a panel is going apoplectic on MSNBC at the horror of it all. I don’t know what else to add. Oh, wait, I do. It is also a crime: Disseminating “knowingly” false weather reports is against federal law. “Whoever knowingly issues or publishes any counterfeit weather forecast or warning of weather conditions falsely representing such forecast or warning to have been issued or published by the Weather Bureau, United States Signal Service, or other branch of the Government service, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ninety days, or both,” 18 U.S. Code 2074 reads. Add it to the list. UPDATE***** He Doesn’t know when to […]
Sometimes people in Washington get it plain wrong!
If conservatives support police killing citizens without justification, climate denial, fact denial, science denial, racist and misogynistic behavior, or a litany of other absurd points of view about numerous important issues, we call them out.
