I hope that by now people are starting to understand that "NOAA" didn't release a statement that sided with Trump and threw #NWS forecasters under a bus, but a few Trump appointees at the top of the command chain within #NOAA did, including the Director of NOAA Communications.

I know these people. They're the weirdest group of brainiac geeks that you've ever seen; plagued with a variety of social and emotional tics.

They're really smart nutters. They lack every social skill imaginable, and are rife with phobias and triggers. like light, temp, and loud sounds.

Certain fabrics freak them out.

Joke pretends he knows these people. He doesn't know any of those people.
That Trump is trying to intimidate these intelligent, well educated people is going to backfire in Trump's stupid face. Wait for it, it's coming.

Sheeple/Nobias/Lieberg/JordyStPete knows none of these people.
Russians are not connected to NOAA in any way, shape, or form.

Trump is absolutely corrosive.

Those responsible should be thrown out on their asses. Political appointee or not.

NOAA has over 10,000 employees.

But since you know them all so well, have any of them ever altered a forecast with a sharpie just for spite?

NOAA Will Investigate Why Agency Supported Trump's False Dorian Claims

Acting chief scientist Craig McLean reportedly told NOAA staff he'll investigate why the agency issued a press release corroborating false claims by Trump, who repeatedly said Alabama would be hit "much harder" by Hurricane Dorian than anticipated.

"[T]he content of this press release is very concerning as it compromises the ability of NOAA to convey life-saving information necessary to avoid substantial and specific danger to public health and safety," McLean reportedly wrote in the email.

As the NOAA's chief scientist, McLean reportedly told staffers a specific danger arises "if the public cannot trust our information, or we debase our forecaster's warnings and products."

I look forward to hearing how G-d protected Alabama from the hurricane at Trump rallies in Alabama.

Just before he completes the investigation is my guess. He will Barr him.

So now we know it was Wilbur "The Liar" Ross that politicized NOAA to gain favor, protect, whatever - that big orange snowflake, Trump.

By all means, Trump must not look bad. If he says the sky is green, don't look. The sky is green. Discount what you see, What you see is a lie. What you hear is a lie. Except for what I am telling you. Trump is truth.

Smile high! Smile high!

What a way to live...
