I've been away from the news for awhile. What's this Trump Sharpie stuff all about?

I understand he embellished a weather map and showed it to the press. But why? What did it do for him? What was his sorry ass trying to prove by doing such a thing? That's the part I missed.

2. He mistakenly said Alabama was in the path of Hurricane Dorian.

Everyone made fun of him. So he insisted it WAS in the path of Dorian.

Everyone made fun of him again. So he staged a photo op of a hurricane briefing. He used a Sharpie to add a false portion to the real weather service/hurricane center map (which wasn't even the real current map at the time of the photo op -- he had to use a 4-5 day old one and it STILL didn't show what he had wanted, so he drew it on -- in an obvious, oafish manner).

3. Well done. Reading the summary is just insane.

It's Homer Simpson/Curly Howard territory. Fictional stupidity.

4. Wow

That sounds like something an insecure child would do!

6. PLUS when a reporter asked him who drew on the map (after some journos pointed out

falsifying a federal weather report/prediction was a crime) he answered, "I don't know. I don't know. I don't know."

Insecure child is a very apt description.

5. You might be better off not knowing

As hilarious as it is, it's also one of the most pathetic things ever to come out of anywhere.
