Washington Post: Trump was the one who altered Dorian trajectory map with Sharpie

https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/06/politics/trump-sharpie-hurricane-dorian-alabama/index.html

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump was the one who used a black Sharpie marker to alter an official National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration map to include Alabama in Hurricane Dorian's trajectory during an Oval Office presentation earlier this week, The Washington Post reported.

"No one else writes like that on a map with a black Sharpie," a White House official who spoke on the condition of anonymity told the Post.

Since Sunday, Trump has aggressively defended his false claim that Hurricane Dorian was likely to hit Alabama, even after the National Weather Service stressed that "no impacts from Hurricane Dorian will be felt across Alabama."

During an Oval Office briefing on Wednesday, Trump claimed that the marked-up NOAA map was the original forecast, although a similar image released from the White House last week did not include perimeters to show that Alabama would be affected.

1. Of course he did it.

And of course he lied about it. He's like the kid who's standing in the kitchen over a broken cookie jar and with cookie crumbs all over his face claiming he didn't take any cookies. But only a four-year-old or Trump would lie like that and expect people to believe him.

5. I've been growling about how the so-called "pResident" is a fucking five-year-old.

With my sincere apologies to five-year-olds everywhere.

12. Wait he stood right in front of reporters and denied he did it. Is it possible he was lying?

2. Trump is priming the public for adjustment of maps with Sharpies

Electoral College maps. Beware!

3. Trump himself said he didn't know (three times, just like Peter!)

Such a holy man, anointed by God.
