The White House just put out a statement from an admiral in defense of Trump’s hurricane claims

The president’s interminable and immensely frustrating crusade to prove himself right about Hurricane Dorian’s threat to Alabama reached absurd heights on Thursday afternoon when the White House’s official Twitter released a statement from Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Advisor Admiral Peter Brown in support of the president’s incorrect assertions.


The statement claims that Brown did in fact brief the President about multiple meteorological models that appeared to indicate that Hurricane Dorian potentially could have impacted the state of Alabam and could have hit the state with “tropical force winds.”

Of course, this doesn’t really help the president’s position at all, since he definitively told the nation that Alabama would “most likely be hit much harder than anticipated.”

During another occasion, Trump said there was a 95% chance that the hurricane was going to hit Alabama…

But the map that he himself tweeted out today said that there was only a 5% chance.

This, of course, is all nonsense and a ridiculous waste of government time and resources. For him to be dragging other elected officials, including his national security staff, in order to make the case that he was somehow “right” when all the data clearly shows that he wasn’t is truly a display of madness on the part of the president.

They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, so what does that mean for a man who repeats the same thing over and over again expecting it to suddenly become true?
