Donald Trump shared a bizarre meme on Saturday with a cat following a beam of light and sitting on the CNN logo, while the president looks at the hurricane Doric map.
The post contained the distracted animal that focused on the laser light instead of the weather forecast behind it while the tune & # 39; Yakety Sax & # 39; plays.
It was originally shared by a Trump supporter with the caption: & # 39; Live look at CNN. & # 39; It was then retweeted without comment by the president, where it collected more than 160,000 likes and 44,000 retweets.
The president placed the meme between a series of tweets about a canceled secret meeting with Taliban leaders and & # 39; Leakin ’Lyin’ James Comey.
Trump said he invited the Taliban leaders of Afghanistan to camp David on Sunday, but canceled the visit after the rebellious group said it was behind a recent attack in Kabul that killed an American soldier and 11 other people.
The cat meme was the newest in a series of bewildering developments that are now known as & # 39; Sharpiegate & # 39 ;.

Donald Trump shared this bizarre meme Saturday with a cat following a beam of light and sitting on the CNN logo, while the president looks at Hurricane Doric map while the number of & # 39; Yakety Sax & # 39; plays after it was originally tweeted by one of his supporters
The rows centered on the president's tweet of September 1 that the brutal storm is likely Alabama & # 39; harder & # 39; would meet than expected. The office of the National Weather Service (NWS) in Birmingham soon gave a tweet to claim that the state was not on the way of the storm.
Trump then defended his statement and insisted that it was based on early information given to him by scientists. At an Oval Office press conference on September 4, he held up a map of August 29 of the path of the storm to prove his point.
That map showed the path of the storm in the direction of North Florida and parts of Georgia. The original map, issued by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), did not show that Alabama was on its way. But, but the one who stopped Trump had circled the state in black sharpness.
Reporters noted the difference and mentioned the & # 39; doctoring & # 39; of the map & # 39; Sharpiegate & # 39 ;.
On Friday evening – when Dorian rattled along the North East coast and set his sights on New England after rescuing the Bahamas & Carolinas – the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the umbrella agency of which the NWS is a part, issued a statement with the text Trump was right and the NWS Birmingham office was wrong to admonish him.
The President's support now has angry employees within the NWS who say they have been & # 39; thrown under the bus & # 39 ;.
In his statement, the NOAA said the president was acting on the basis of information suggesting that Alabama may have been hit in the early stages of the storm.
Trump gave the & # 39; fake news media & # 39; the blame for fixing & # 39; fixing & # 39; of his tweet on 1 September
Trump gave the & # 39; fake news media & # 39; the blame for fixing & # 39; fixing & # 39; of his tweet on 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.
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

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.
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.
Dorian has killed at least 44 people after it hit the Bahamas last Sunday as a Category 5 storm with winds as fast as 185mph. Officials have warned that the number of deaths is likely to increase as security forces and other teams search destroyed areas of the Northern Bahamas.
The storm that has already walled the Virgin Islands, Bahamas, and North Carolina is now bringing hurricane winds to the Far East.
