image for "If This Wasn't So Dangerous I'd Be Laughing": Trump Presents Outdated Dorian Forecast Map With Alabama Circled With Sharpie

The graphic appears to have been altered with a Sharpie to indicate a risk the storm would move into Alabama from Florida.

According to Mersereau, citing a U.S. statute, "It is a violation of federal law to falsify a National Weather Service forecast and pass it off as official, as President Trump did here.".

Asked subsequently about the markings on the map, Trump told reporters he didn't know where the marks came from:.

Last week, federal officials with the National Weather Service were forced to issue a public correction after Trump declared publicly that Alabama was at risk from the storm:.

However, even after the NWS corrected the president's remarks, Trump did it again. »

Bernie Sanders Is the Strongest Candidate to Beat Donald Trump

Authored by

In order to figure out who has the best chance of beating Trump, we’ll need to reason it out.

The Daily Beast reports that in the 206 counties that went for Obama in 2008 and 2012 and then went for Donald Trump in 2016, Bernie Sanders is raking in far and away the most individual donations.

The candidate most likely to beat Trump is the one with the massive volunteer army, already hard at work all over the country, and especially in swing states and counties. »
