“I was with you all the way Alabama. The Fake News Media was not!”
Once again, the same media types who got the 2016 election completely wrong, and failed to challenge the Obama administration for eight years, are fact-checking Trump into oblivion.
Every perceived Trump mistake is treated with pettiness that borders on vindictive. They are completely unable to admit it when they’re proven wrong.
Trump suggested that Hurricane Dorian may graze Alabama, and the media has tried to make it a referendum on Trump’s character.
This is the Associated Press:
Trump clings to idea Alabama faced big threat from Dorian
President Donald Trump isn’t giving up on the dubious idea that Alabama faced a serious threat from Hurricane Dorian.
During an Oval Office briefing Wednesday, Trump displayed a map of the National Hurricane Center forecast for last Thursday that showed Dorian could track over Florida. The map he displayed included what appeared to be a hand-drawn half-circle that extended the cone of uncertainty over a swath of Alabama.
Trump had raised eyebrows and drawn an emphatic fact check from the National Weather Service on Sunday when he tweeted that Alabama, along with the Carolinas and Georgia, “will most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated.”
The National Weather Service in Birmingham, Alabama, tweeted in response: “Alabama will NOT see any impacts from #Dorian. We repeat, no impacts from Hurricane #Dorian will be felt across Alabama. The system will remain too far east.”
According to Newsbusters, CNN and MSNBC devoted 145 minutes of coverage to this.

Here’s CNN doing a report about how it’s Trump who is obsessed with this, not them:
This tweet from Trump seems to suggest he had a point:

The White House has even released a statement on this:

This was always the likeliest explanation but we had to have 36 hours of media freakouts first https://t.co/35Ab8Rv8iZ

This reminds me of the time CNN did an exclusive report about how many scoops of ice cream Trump gets. These people completely failed to do their jobs under Obama. Now they’re compensating by obsessing over every stupid little thing under Trump.
I don’t blame Trump for aggressively pushing back. These people are out to get him and they prove it with every absurd outrage cycle.
