Trumped: NOAA backs president on Alabama storm news

The leftist media’s latest uncontrolled episode of Trump Derangement Syndrome is evident in the ongoing 6-day coverage of the President’s Hurricane-Dorian-to-hit-Alabama warning on Sunday, in spite of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) backing Trump in a statement that disavowed the National Weather Service’s Birmingham, Alabama, office that had contradicted him.

The Friday NOAA statement included a link to a series of advisory graphics that clearly showed a progression of projected possible hurricane and tropical storm paths issued as the storm approached the U.S.

The statement read:

“From Wednesday, August 28, through Monday, September 2, the information provided by NOAA and the National Hurricane Center to President Trump and the wider public demonstrated that tropical-storm-force winds from Hurricane Dorian could impact Alabama,” the statement read. “This is clearly demonstrated in Hurricane Advisories #15 through #41, which can be viewed on the center’s website.
“The Birmingham National Weather Service’s Sunday morning tweet spoke in absolute terms that were inconsistent with probabilities from the best forecast products available at the time.”

Evidence be damned, sayeth the media and the Trump-haters.

Rather than own up to their clear anti-Trump bias and fake news reporting, CNN, the Associated Press, and others doubled down on their claims that the president was wrong about Hurricane Dorian when he tweeted on September 1: “In addition to Florida – South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama, will most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated. Looking like one of the largest hurricanes ever. Already category 5. BE CAREFUL! GOD BLESS EVERYONE!”

CNN quoted progressive Dan Sobien, president of the National Weather Service Employees Organization, who characterized NOAA’s defense of the President as “disgusting and disingenuous” when he said on Friday: “Let me assure you the hard working employees of the NWS had nothing to do with the utterly disgusting and disingenuous tweet sent out by NOAA management tonight #NOAA.”

After Trump’s tweet above, the National Weather Service Birmingham office tweeted: “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.”

Later on Sunday at a press briefing on the storm, Trump said: “And, I will say, the states — and it may get a little piece of a great place: It’s called Alabama. And Alabama could even be in for at least some very strong winds and something more than that, it could be. This just came up, unfortunately. It’s the size of — the storm that we’re talking about. So, for Alabama, just please be careful also.”

Since then, with little other noteworthy news coming out of Washington, the media has been trying to get as much mileage as possible out of the Trump hurricane warnings that they have maliciously characterized as uninformed and inaccurate.

On Wednesday, the President tweeted out his own NHC spaghetti model graphic from early in the storm’s development, as well as calling out the media for their bogus criticisms …
