Trump Just Sent Bizarre Tweet About Dorian Hitting Alabama and Refuses to Admit He Was Wrong

After sticking by false comments that Alabama was in the path of Hurricane Dorian, Donald Trump displayed the National Hurricane Center’s original weather forecast chart for the storm on Wednesday. And an apparent Sharpie edit caught the attention of the internet.

A closer look at the chart Trump displayed, while discussing the impact and response to Dorian, appears that the original forecast cone that mapped the predicted direction of Dorian on Aug. 29 was altered in black ink to touch a corner of — you guessed it — Alabama.

After getting a lot of heat for the lie, Trump decided to double down by tweeting an older map that barely showed the storm hitting Alabama.

He also added, “I accept the Fake News apologies!”

Twitter had a field day:
