What Is It About Storms That Turns Politicians into Morons?
silly statement that the storm was headed for Alabama. We covered that Sunday.
the coverup is worse than the crime." As the chattering class is reporting (gleefully, in many cases) it is illegal for anyone to misrepresent a National Weather Service forecast.
That said, this was a stupid, stupid, stupid thing to do. Not only does it show President Trump to be dishonest on this topic, it could, in theory, put peoples' lives in danger if there is confusion as to where a hurricane is going.
The orange link (above) demonstrates that other politicians have done similar dumb things pertaining to storms (and not apologized). But, this one is different because it reveals a deliberate misrepresentation.
The fact is that politicians should stop playing meteorologist. Now!! Forever!!
