President Donald Trump just doesn't seem to shake off his comments in Alabama.
After the president predicted that Hurricane Dorian, downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone that destroyed the Atlantic coast of Canada early Saturday, would hit Alabama, he was removed by politicians and meteorologists for his prediction.
He continued on Saturday with his defense on Twitter, this time with a story about the New York Times.
& # 39; The Failing New York Times stated in an article written by Obama-fat Peter Baker (who lovingly wrote Obama book): & # 39; Even after the president predicted that the storm would cover Alabama. & # 39; THIS IS NOT TRUE. I said, VERY EARLY, that it could ONLY affect Alabama. A BIG DIFFERENCE … & wrote the president.
President Donald Trump defended his controversial prediction that Alabama would be hit again by Hurricane Dorian on Saturday
He threw an article in the New York Times condemning his false prediction and saying: & # 39; I'd really like to stop referring to this ridiculous story & # 39; by adding & # 39; LameStream media & # 39; did not release the controversy
Trump closed the outlet as & # 39; Fake News & # 39; and said: & # 39; I'd really like to stop referring to this ridiculous story, but the LameStream Media just won't leave it alone. & # 39;
& # 39; They must always have the last word, even though they know they are cheating and cheating the public. The public knows that the media are corrupt! & # 39; he added.
There has been some back and forth about his Alabama prediction, which he shared in a tweet on September 1, which gave rise to serious criticism, because only Florida, Georgia, and Carolinas were initially predicted to be hit by the monster hurricane while moving to the east coast turned.
Trump further defended his prediction with & # 39; Sharpiegate & # 39; on September 4, where he held an Oval Office press conference where on August 29, he held up a map of Dorian's path that seemed to have circled Alabama as an affected area.
But on Friday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration came to defend Trump and said he did not make his Alabama prediction. On the contrary, he had received information that said that Dorian & # 39; could affect Alabama & # 39 ;.
& # 39; From Wednesday, August 28 through Monday, September 2, the information from NOAA and the National Hurricane Center showed President Trump and the wider public that winds with tropical storms from Hurricane Dorian Alabama could affect, & # 39; said the statement.
Dan Sobien, president of the National Weather Service Employees Organization who hires 4,000 employees, gave these destructive tweets on Friday evening
The beginning of the line: on 1 September, Trump issued this tweet warning that Dorian could hit Alabama
The NWS office in Birmingham, Alabama issued a correction to say that the president was wrong
On September 4, Trump held an Oval Office press conference, where on August 29 he held a map of the path of the storm that seemed to have encircled Alabama in black sharpness

The NOAA, which falls under the US Department of Commerce, subsequently criticized the National Weather Service's Birmingham office for disputing Trump's claim.
& # 39; The Sunday morning tweet by the Birmingham National Weather Service spoke in absolute terms that did not match the probabilities of the best products available at the time, & # 39; the NOAA continued.
The statement only added fire to the anger in Alabama and led the NWS and NOAA to turn against each other.
NWS president Dan Sobien called the NOAA in his answer & # 39; disgusting & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I can assure you that the hard-working employees of the NWS had nothing to do with the extremely disgusting and unfair tweet sent by NOAA management tonight, & # 39; tweeted Sobien Friday.

& # 39; We do not want to reach the point where science is determined by politics instead of science and facts. And I'm afraid this is an example where this is starting to happen, & # 39; former DWS director Elbert Friday added to the controversy.
On Friday, Trump blamed the controversy on the & # 39; fake news media & # 39; for & # 39; fixing & # 39; from his tweet of 1 September.
& # 39; The Fake News Media was fixated on the fact that I rightly said in the beginning of Hurricane Dorian that Alabama can be grazed or hit in addition to Florida and other states.
& # 39; They went crazy, hoping that I made a mistake (which I didn't). View the cards … This nonsense never happened to another president.
& # 39; Four days of corrupt reporting, still without apology. But there are many things for which the Fake News Media have not apologized, such as the Witch Hunt or SpyGate!
& # 39; The LameStream Media and their democrat partner must start playing it immediately. It would be so much better for our country! & # 39; he tweeted on September 6.
From Sunday afternoon Dorian pummels Canada where it has left thousands without fire. The storm is now going to open water.
On his path of destruction, Hurricane Dorian left at least 44 dead in the Bahamas, at least two people dead in the US
More than 70,000 people in the Bahama & # 39; s homeless people and thousands along the east coast of the US have no power. At least 350,000 residents in Canada have also lost power.
