In a statement released Friday afternoon, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) stated Alabama was in fact threatened by the storm at the time Trump tweeted Alabama would "most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated."

Figures. The federal bureaucracy is loaded with hacks who love Democrats, the party of big government; and therefore, job security, nicer offices, higher salaries and more perks.

No, science explains global warming.

The hacks are everywhere, especially on the denier side.

Unless they're saying they literally picked up a Sharpie and drew on the map, then no, they haven't really sided with Donald Trump.

Who? and how is he relevant?

That's like saying the Union fo AT&T speaks for the company. The official spokesperson of the NWS said Trump was right. But you cant stand that, can you?

How is that? The cones at the time had it going straight through Florida headed right where Trump and NOAA said it was going to go.
