Trump’s Alabama SharpieGate

UPDATE: The Washington Post is reporting that President Trump himself put the Sharpie to the map.

This was pretty stupid of him. I mean, come on. Makes me worried about his willingness to bend reality, which already makes me worried.

Trump mistakenly tweeted September 1 that Alabama “will most likely be hit (much) harder that anticipated.”

Then, he tried to justify it with this, an official map that someone enhanced with a Sharpie. Trump denies it was him, but, uh, he does use Sharpies a lot. It’s like something out of Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

Anti-Trump Twitterites are having plenty of fun with this, as you might imagine.
