Trump's false claim that Alabama was at risk from Hurricane Dorian caused unnecessary mass panic. Instead of admitting an error, he destroyed the integrity of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
While the NOAA politicized the weather, the National Weather Service of Birmingham (AL) refused to play along.
“Let me be clear: The Birmingham office did this to stop public panic and to ensure public safety.” - National Weather Service Director Louis Uccellini
Lies are truth!
What Dear Leader says is always more important than the truth.
The Trump administration is corrupting even our national weather services.
It's a metastasizing problem throughout the government.
Just when you thought the "Dorian IS hitting Alabama" story could not get crazier, it does.
The study, published in the journal Nature, finds a 10 percent slowdown in storm speed between 1949 and 2016.
There are two months left in hurricane season and we just lost our NOAA hurricane tracker airplane.
