Video: The View Suggests Trump Should Be Charged With Felony After Dorian Map
During an episode on “The View” Thursday, the hosts jabbed at President Trump for showing a doctored chart of Hurricane Dorian’s Path, and warned that he could face legal action for giving a false forecast.
On Wednesday, the President’s staff poked fun at CNN for labeling the state of Alabama Mississippi and the President tweeted that the hurricane could affect Alabama.
Thanks, Stephanie. Yes, we made a mistake (which we fixed in less than 30 seconds). And now we are admitting it. You all should try it sometime.

Alabama was going to be hit or grazed, and then Hurricane Dorian took a different path (up along the East Coast). The Fake News knows this very well. That’s why they’re the Fake News!

This caused the National Weather Service to clarify that Dorian wasn’t headed in that direction. However, the President doubled down and displayed a chart in the Oval Office that someone used a black marker on.
“It’s illegal to falsely — under federal law — to pass off a doctored, National Weather Service forecast,” host Sunny Hostin commented. “Wouldn’t it be interesting if this is what took down the president?” she asked before adding that doctoring a forecast was a felony.
According to Fox News:
A White House official told Fox News that before cameras were allowed in the Oval Office, an individual –whom the official declined to identify–used a pen to put the extra loop on Dorian’s path.
When co-host Abby Huntsman expressed sympathy for Alabamians who thought the hurricane was coming their way and she asked where was Trump’s advisers.
“They’re like, ‘Look we tried. We tried for two years, and we’re out,'” co-host Whoopi Goldberg responded.
The point is the media was miffed they looked like idiots the night before and were hunting to get the President for any little thing, boy they are petty. If we stacked the Presidents mistakes next to the media it wouldn’t even be close. Just a side note if that storm did move west it totally would have affected Alabama.
