On Wednesday, September 4, 2019, Trump displayed an altered official weather graphic. Trump was trying to validate his false claim, likely just a slip of the tongue, that Alabama five days into the storm could be affected by Dorian so he or his team altered an official graphic of Hurricane Dorian’s trajectory to include part of Alabama. This is not the behavior of a healthy human, nor of a healthy administration. The fact that the Republican Party and the RNC both stand by Trump shows the Republican Party is not currently a healthy political party.
To state it more bluntly, the president of the United States or his staff altered an official weather graphic and displayed it from behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office! When offered an opportunity the same day to correct the record, he refused. The next day, rather than correct the record, he tripled down trying to defend the altering of an official government graphic and as of yet has not admitted the graphic was doctored, nor has he corrected the false information given to the citizens of Alabama. Also, Trump broke the law! Specifically, U.S. Code title 18 § 2074.
