5. It doesn't matter what the fuck the Con gets someone to do

The fact is that the map put out by NOAA on the day the Con chatted that shit did not fucking include Alabama. NOthing changes that.

10. Completely agree

The idea that someone at NOAA, anyone, would try to provide cover for his sharpie addition that was not accurate is truly frightening. Especially from Scientists.

13. I have the feeling

If someone didn't take the fall he was threatening to shut NOAA down.

You tell me you *really* don't believe he wouldn't stoop to that.

Do they realize how stupid and transparent this looks? Do they assume no one was watching the weather reports this whole time ??? What bullshit.

6. The emperor's new clothes are so pretty!

We have been assured that only the most sophisticated and elegant people can see the emperor's clothes, and only churlish dolts insist on not seeing the emperor's clothes. We will even conjure up an anonymous "NOAA Spokesperson" to attest to the stylish clothes the emperor is wearing.

17. I just checked advisories 15 through 41

and only a couple of the early ones (and not even all of those) mention anywhere in Alabama and where they do, the probability of windspeeds of between 63 MPH is de minimis and the probability of windspeeds above 93 MPH is zero.

Here's a link to the advisory from the morning of Sept 1, the day Trump posted his tweet warning Alabama it was going to get hit by the storm. If there is a reference to an Alabama location I'm not seeing it. https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/2019/al05/al052019.wndprb.032.shtml?

Finally, the other main advisory that the NHC issues contains the following statement, which seems to suggest that NOAA is being forced to throw the Birmingham office under the bus:

"For storm information specific to your area in the United
States, including possible inland watches and warnings, please
monitor products issued by your local National Weather Service
forecast office."

23. Thanks for doing the leg work.

As a side note, I wish they would make their alerts/info more readable.

24. Are they simply trying to mollify a complete lunatic???

Who knows what kind of threats he's been throwing at people.

And, can they produce documents that are contemporary to that time period, proving this true?

This whole mess has gotten so convoluted. The whole point, that needs to be POUNDED is, when he was tweeting that nonsense, on Sunday, the track of the storm was never going to go anywhere near Alabama.
