“President” Donald Trump’s absurd claim that Alabama was in Hurricane Dorian’s projected path appears to have some support from his lyin’ press secretary Stephanie Grisham. This isn’t unusual in this “administration” since deflecting seems to be a prerequisite to joining Team Trump.
Grisham took to Twitter to lash out at CNN over the network’s graphic following a backlash over Trump’s misleading and dangerous claim about Alabama.
Hi @CNN, I know you guys are busy analyzing lines on a map, but perhaps you use your time to study up on U.S. geography?” Grisham tweeted.

And that didn’t go down well on Twitter.
Are you day drinking Steph? Hopefully you’ll take an uber.

You’re trying so much to outdo Sarah. Not possible.

That was quickly corrected. They didn’t pretend that their mistake didn’t happen.
You can’t say the same about the horse’s ass in the Oval Office…can you, Stephanie.

You should totally address this in your press briefings that YOU NEVER HAVE, “Press Secretary”.

So what? After 8/28, Alabama was NOT thought to be in the line of fire. All Trump needed to do was admit he’d made a mistake, but he’s too stubborn and conceited for that, so now you’re stuck doubling down and defending the indefensible. Disgraceful and embarrrassing.

Girl, you’ve got some shameless nerve to call out anyone on a mistake. Your boss couldn’t place half the states on a map. Lol

It’s not just Sharpie-gate. This is part of a broader pattern.
I count at least seven glaring examples in which government officials have wheeled into action in an effort to make Trump’s lies, errors and obsessions into truths.

Altering a weather map is illegal. “Whoever knowingly issues or publishes any counterfeit weather forecast or warning of weather conditions falsely representing such forecast or warning to have been issued or published by the Weather Bureau, United States Signal Service, or other branch of the Government service, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ninety days, or both,” US code reads.
At some point, this lawless ‘administration’ will be held responsible for its actions.
