    OK what did Trump's sharpie modified weather map show other than Trump's stupidity in thinking anyone except the willfully ignorant would accept that as evidence.

    Perhaps it would behove you to learn the meaning of " conspiracy theory" . Hint: it isn't the same as sheer stupidity and ignorance.

    Lol...Yeah, and maybe he’ll stop acting like a thin-skinned dotard, but we all know that won’t ever happen.
    But do keep throwing out irrelevant bullshit to distract from trump’s deplorable ignorance and pathological pettiness.
    You should realize, though, that the more you people try to defend the indefensible, the more attention you draw to trump’s incompetence.

    Tell me what the large circle around the 8AM position means? Are you aware of what it represents?

    Yes of course it is the 95 % confidence limit of the path, calculated originally on a daily basis. So basically the edge of the circle represents a 5% probability of any storm impact each day. But it didn't include Alabama. Now you tell me what Trump's sharpie circle was supposed to mean.

    The spaghetti graphs did and that is what the uncertainty range represents. Dorian could be anywhere within that circle by 8AM including the warm Gulf where it could pick up speed or skirt south of Florida into the Gulf. Where do you think it would be by 9AM according to the picture? Even as a tropical storm it can be very damaging as it was in Cape Hatteras.

    That wasn't your question. And you forgot to explain what Trump's sharpie addition was supposed to mean. And yes Dorian could have gone anywhere within the area of uncertainty with lower and lower probability the farther from the center you go.

    And Trump using an old map he modified to prove his claim made four days later that Alabama wa in danger was just another Trump lie.

    Which, of course, was correct and the hysterical just have to hold onto their bias to feel relevant.

    LOL. The spaghetti graph also included Texas and Mississippi and has lines to Mexico.

    And lines up the coast so if Trump had claimed Cape Hatteras could be hit the lefties would be here whining like little babies about it.

    So why didn't Trump also warn those living in Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi?

    Sorry but you still haven't explained what Trump's doctored map was supposed to prove. And by the time Trump made his prediction there was no chance of an Alabama hit. That is a fact. And even the sphaghetti map he used shows about 2 predictions out of about forty possible paths that included Alabama. And three days later no path went through Alabama.

    Poor old Trump defenders have to try so hard and distort the facts almost as much as Trump does.

    Yep. Whoever wins the Dem nomination only has to beat Trump once.

    It's a nice dream, but none of the clowns the Democrats have running can beat a good economy. Trump has over 50% approval on the economy.

    54% disapprove of him generally. That ain't gonna get him over the line.

    But the point of this thread is that he or his underlings abused their positions to order someone to lie, in order to cover up his mistake. That's outrageous.

    He has a below 40 overall approval rate. What was the last president to have that with a good economy, it speaks volumes.

    Folks just care more about their own personal economies than the other crapola. If someone's struggling financially, I doubt they can give a crap about foreign policy.

    Like Tramp's weather forecast, you are out of date!
    https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/ten...-approval-drops-points-poll/story?id=65414875
    Trump approval drops by 6 points, majority say recession likely: POLL
    Trump has slipped by a slight 5 percentage points specifically on his handling of the economy, from 51% approval in midsummer to 46% now.
