Does Trump know where Alabama is?: False storm alert sparks panic


President Trump is under fire for spreading false information about Hurricane Dorian, claiming it Alabama would ‘most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated.’ The National Weather Service quickly fact checked Trump’s claim, asserting Alabama would ‘NOT see any impacts’ from Dorian. Make It Plain’s Mark Thompson questions Trump’s geography knowledge, saying Trump ‘may actually think Alabama is directly on the East Coast.’ Thompson criticized Trump’s statements, arguing his lack of ‘regard for the irresponsibility of his statements’ would be the cause of ‘a great deal of panic.’
