Donny can't get a single thing straight. He clearly thinks most of us are as ignorant as his supporters.

16 ( +18 / -2 )

Sad state of affairs when the weather forecast people have to step in to correct what the president has jut told the country.  Also he reportedly said he has never heard of a category 5 hurricane even though there have been three since he took office.  Looks to me like dementia is setting in.

17 ( +18 / -1 )

I feel genuinely sorry for the man, if it's dementia. Unfortunately, this can result in increased belligerence and mood swings.

The fact that every time there's a category 5, he claims he's never heard of one before, is a sign of his failing health.

Or, that he's a liar.

Either way; not fit to be President.

14 ( +15 / -1 )

Trump responded, "I don't know. I don't know," 

Reminiscent of Reagan in the latter stages of his presidential term.

Not fit to be president.

11 ( +12 / -1 )

Come on......

His very first official act after being sworn into office was to call and berate a GS-9 at the National Park Service about Inauguration Crowd Photos.

Doctoring a Category 5 Hurricane Plot? Child's play.

Every time I think he cannot be any more of a petty, narcissistic, ignorant, gas-lighting infant, he proves me wrong. What a horrible, vile human.

Again, he wants it his way!

Like a kindergarten kid: just use a black marker, some crayons and draw your own picture.

Altering official government weather maps is actually illegal.

Been a busy week with Hurricane Dorian, knocked the President off the news feed for a week, the media can’t allow this, it tanks their already abysmal ratings, slow and depressing so let’s find something new and irrelevant to attack the President with. ROFL!

Reminiscent of Reagan in the latter stages of his presidential term.

Not fit to be president.

Well, then Biden and Sanders are far worse, Warren won’t make it and neither the other 2 funny candidates, Democrats are in serious Hot Water!

-20 ( +1 / -21 )

Because the Netanyahu cartoon 'Iranian nuclear bomb' was seen as a convincing prop for his lies by the Americans Trump loves, he probably thought that the ridiculous 'extension' would sail for him. The sad thing is that it probably will, with way too many Americans.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

Trump can only see in a straight line but Dorian threw a curved ball and we got lucky in Florida and not much happened.

So I hope Trump will now offer aid to the Bahamas with total destruction there. Worse hurricane in 20 years.

His election predictions might turn out to be as off course as his hurricane one when the voters turn too.

8 ( +8 / -0 )

 "I don't know. I don't know,"

Thats probably the only truthful statement Donny has made in a long long time.

He doesnt know much....

"Alabama will NOT see any impacts from #Dorian," it tweeted.

Wait for the Trumplets to go after the NWS and how they are part of the deep state.

So far, it looks like he’s going to weather that storm just fine.

It may leave a mark, though. lol

As off course as Dorian and losing in all the polls. Nothing is sure until it happens. Lossing the white female votes and already lost the hispanic and black vote.

Down 5 million votes on his previous outing.

Regular Donny lol !!..

It is a known federal offense to doctor an official weather map. But of course, to Trump, his ego is the most important thing. He would never admit that he's wrong. Luckily, most people in Alabama are smarter than that, but it really underlines how much Trump lies and is willing to do so in order to preserve his ego. His ego is above the welfare of the American people.

Of course, when a reporter asked Trump if the map was altered with a Sharpie, all Trump could say was "I don't know, I don't know, I don't know." There is only one diagnosis for what Trump is going through: dementia.

11 ( +12 / -1 )

Thoughts and prayers to the people of Alabama during this difficult hurricane.

I am so exhausted by those useless Trump news, it's overshadowing anything important happening in the world. And the media is going with it... Please stop giving that man Internet light.

Demented fool.

LOL! That one might be over the heads of some people who don't keep up with all of the US news. He still trying to hold onto the idea that Alabama is in the path of the "Nuclear Hurricane", so he won't look stupid again!

Trump claimed Dorian could hit Alabama -- even after weather service refuted it

Maybe spending too much time at the golf course damaged his brain this week. Should have spent more time reading and learning. LOL!

It's kind of nice to know he was just being stupid instead of lying this time.

Now let's get that guy back to a golf course and far away from commenting on the hurricane.

10 ( +10 / -0 )

Reporter: Mr President, where's the hurricane going to land?

Trump: Yep, it's going to hit Alabama - and those British airfields that have been there since 1776 better be careful....

Reporter: Mr President, what about your properties there and in Florida - what have you done to protect your workers?

Trump: I told them all to go back to Mexico and Venezuela...

Reporter: Mr President, will you be in the command center monitoring the storm and helping provide assistance?

Hah! I'll be in my command center on the 18th tee at Bedminster!

8 ( +8 / -0 )

Reporter: Mr President, the National Weather Service is saying the storm won't hit Alabama and that you are wrong....

Trump: The NWA - what a witch hunt - it's all Obama, Hillary, Bigfoot's doing. The NWA is nothing but a band of 18 angry Democrats....

8 ( +8 / -0 )

18 U.S. Code 2074: It is a violation of federal law to falsify a National Weather Service forecast and pass it as official, as Dump did here.

Only an idiot would take a black marker and edit official reports for the sake of their own fragile ego! Then lies to media by denying that he knows anything about it.

Trumpsters are always saying that Dump is popular for "telling it like it is", yet he is always denying and lying that he said or did anything!

Try to wrap your head around all of those contradictions Trumpsters!

LOL!

I think it’s the opposite. All these socialists and they can’t beat Trump on their own game and then you have Biden’s wife essentially pleading with the public, just hold your noses, ignore my husbands dementia and vote for him. Yup, Trump is laughing his butt off. I would too, No, I am!

Trumper hysteria....

As he held up the poster board to give the journalists present a better view, it became clear the map had been edited: Dorian's cone had been extended with what appeared to be black marker to include the state of Alabama.

This was so cringeworthy, couldn't believe he was actually holding a map (primary school, 80s type) in front of dozens of journos. That was truly bizarre. Bloke has some serious insecurity issues.

Being stupid and a liar aren’t mutually exclusive for Donny. The map change looks like he was just being an idiot, but he’s such a habitual liar, it’s the root cause of this ridiculous action.

Before we start hearing about how the EC is all that matters, let's have a reality check regarding the fact that the popular vote expresses the will of the people. Feel free to argue this, but know you'll simply be displaying your ignorance.

Gee, does this remind anyone of anything? Here he gets caught telling a lie, so he tries to cover it up with another lie - and a real amateurish attempt.....

Similar to when he said there was no meeting with Russians at Trump Tower, then we found out that was a lie, so he issues a false statement that the meeting was about adoptions...another lie....

Dishonest Donnie - just lie, lie, lie....

When will his cult-like supporters open their eyes....the guy is a psychotic serial liar. He didn't need to lie about the Hurricane headed to Alabama - he just did it. That's the sign of a very sick mind...

If he wasn’t doing anything, then I would, he didn’t do a Bush or an Obama. By the way when is Congress coming back? What will the Democrats get back to work? And why aren’t they back right now considering what is going on?

Ladies, this is how Trumpers judge you....remember in 2020.....

He isn't doing anything beyond mouthing off on twitter and spewing lies.

When the republicans also go back. You act as if the republicans are in DC. More bad faith.

When is Moscow Mitch going to get to work? The Dems has n the House have passed over 100 pieces of legislation that Massacer Mitch refuses to bring to a vote, but somehow you think the Dems are obstructing. More bad faith.

Hey, his first amendment right to do so. iPhones are portable, it’s all about the convenience..mobile..lol.

No, the Democrats are the ones that whined the most and for some reason during this tragedy they’re gone, but they whine the most, not surprised.

When is Moscow Mitch going to get to work?

When will the Democrats get to work, real work instead of whining about Trump?

The Dems has n the House have passed over 100 pieces of legislation that Massacer Mitch refuses to bring to a vote,

Yes and the Dems rejected everything the President asked for we are now at an impasse

but somehow you think the Dems are obstructing. More bad faith.

It's not irrelevant: Trump spoke to reporters on the record, in the Oval Office, in the capacity of President, and waved a map at them.

You can't blame the media for doing their job and noticing that the map had unmistakably been tampered with, and by someone so ignorant they don't even know what the track forecast cone signifies, and apparently, still haven't worked out why it's called a "cone".

What an absolute loser and child. I love how he was questioned about the sharpie addition -- something he has confessed he loves -- and could only mumble like an old man and say, "I don't know... I don't know..."

How embarrassing it must be to still try and support this old fool.

Bass: And look who won and is in the White House.

You used the term “silent majority” from Nixon to say that the minority might be more vocal and get noticed more, but when the election comes the silent majority will go to the polls and vote for him. Trump actually won with the vocal minority which would be the opposite of what you are describing.

I’m not interested in a prolonged debate involving liberals and conservatives, socialists, who won or lost, our election system, or any irrelevant side points or off-topic additions. I’m just making one simple correction to your one mistake and that’s all.

Not necessarily noticed, but publicly might excoriate or curse at Trump and then behind the curtain write in his name.

but when the election comes the silent majority will go to the polls and vote for him.

Happened last time.

No, not when it comes to translating it into votes and the ballot box.

He lied about a Phone call on trade with China; he lied about a his inauguration crowd; he lied about the economy; he lied about his involvement with his sons meeting the Russians; and now he is lying about the weather.....

Bass: Not necessarily noticed, but publicly might excoriate or curse at Trump and then behind the curtain write in his name.

Again, just to correct you about this one specific thing and not to start an entire political debate, Trump lost the majority vote which means he didn't have a majority either silent or vocal. The silent majority would not be applicable to either candidate in the last election.

Just correcting you on that one thing. I hope you understand now.

Again, just to correct you about this one specific thing and not to start an entire political debate, Trump lost the majority vote which means he didn't have a majority either silent or vocal.

But he won the EC that’s the only thing that matters and liberals for all their talk can’t change it. And that silent majority sent him over...

I hope you understand now.

Unfortunately for the Trumplets that gives him a right to commit crimes, spread lies and falsehoods....

After 2021 when Donny is in Moscow and we send an extradition request, will Putin comply?

He is useful to Putin as long as he can leak secret information and influence policy making.

But without all of these and very little money(his business is going bankrupt anyhow) will Donny serve any purpose?

But he won the EC that’s the only thing that matters and liberals for all their talk can’t change it. And that silent majority sent him over...

The like your president you are doing a Dorian backflip from claiming Trump last time out won the majority vote when he didn't. Yes! he was appointed president by the EC.

The president was elected by 304 electors of the electoral college, out of 538.

Nothing to do with your claimed "silent majority". Odd claim to make.

I hope you understand now.

Trump don't know diddley! And even though Reagan had the first signs of Alzheimer's as President (and his autobiography shows that clearly) at least he got somethings accomplished - you know, positive things like talking with Gorbachev and burying the hatchet with U.S.S.R. And what positive things is Trump doing? NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!! And for better or for worse, Reagan acted like a President and not a juvenile crybaby.

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Bass:. And that silent majority sent him over.

Nope. Another swing and a miss. The term "silent majority" was a statement about the people, not the EC.

I think I've made my point clearly. If you choose to think a win with a vocal minority can be described as a silent majority, so be it. Just wanted to help.
