Last Wednesday: Trump receives briefing about #Dorian. Storm track over FL peninsula, into Gulf & possibly Alabama.
7-day forecast was highly uncertain (obviously since it changed)
Weekend: Trump Tweets that Alabama will be hit hard (wrong)
Trump is still going -- and a major hurricane is about to make landfall in the Carolinas.
This is nauseating b/c it obfuscates the great work being done.
Now Trump could be guilty of "doctoring a weather map"
e.g. Alabama never was threatened or in the forecast to be hit by Dorian.
False. The storm doesn't just stop after 5-days. The NOAA forecasts had Dorian centered in Alabama.
That forecast was just wrong.
WPC issues 7-day forecasts -- in direct coordination with NHC.
