President Trump has again become “the cake” for the mainstream media “divide” as he mentioned on Twitter that Alabama was threatened by Hurricane Dorian. Though critics want to believe it or not, he was still right.
President Trump tweeted over Labor Day that Alabama, among other states, could be hit hard by the storm.
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!

About 20 minutes later, the National Weather Service station in Birmingham tweeted that Alabama would not see “any impacts” from Dorian because it was projected to remain too far east.

However, on Friday, Sept. 6, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) stated that Alabama had in fact been possibly threatened by the storm at the time the president tweeted and they released archived projections as proof.
“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.”
President Trump said Thursday that early projections showed the storm heading toward Alabama, and has lashed out at pushback in the media and from meteorologists who noted that weather projections showed the storm tracking farther east.
The Fake News Media was fixated on the fact that I properly said, at the beginnings of Hurricane Dorian, that in addition to Florida & other states, Alabama may also be grazed or hit. They went Crazy, hoping against hope that I made a mistake (which I didn’t). Check out maps…..

Yet, the mainstream media will more than likely accuse NOAA of faking the archived footage, instead of apologizing.
Just as I said, Alabama was originally projected to be hit. The Fake News denies it! pic.twitter.com/elJ7ROfm2p
