Elder Patriot – Add Master Level Troller to President Trump’s resume.
It’s now six days after President Trump first said that Alabama was in the path of Hurricane Dorian on some models.
Since that day, and Dorian made a hard right and began traveling a path up the east coast, the left wing media vilified the president wanting President Trump to admit he made a mistake.
Even Breitbart’s AFP was seemingly obsessed in writing:
Six days and President Donald Trump is still trying to persuade the world he was right about Hurricane Dorian hitting Alabama.
He has insisted via Twitter to his more than 60 million followers. He has brandished a mysteriously-altered weather map in the Oval Office. He has deployed a rear admiral.
And on Friday — on a day when survivors in the Bahamas and other places where the hurricane actually did hit were trying to rebuild their lives — the US president once more took to Twitter to argue about Alabama.
The media “went Crazy, hoping against hope that I made a mistake (which I didn’t),” he wrote. “Still without an apology.”
The spat might seem insignificant as one of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes on record wheels up the edge of the US east coast after pulverizing the Bahamas.
But in terms of attention given by Trump, what’s become known as “Sharpie-gate” is no sideshow.
President Trump abided the media fixation on the nonsensical non-issue until…
Wait for it…
