Trump Keeps Lying About Hurricane Dorian and Alabama: A Closer Look


-The President is
still defending his doctored math,
insisting that he was right about Hurricane Dorian
hitting Alabama. For more on this, it’s time
for “a closer look”. [ Cheers and applause ] Now, we know Donald Trump is
and has always been a conspiracy theorist
and pathological liar who is completely detached
from reality. It’s always been his brand. It’s just that back when he was
a New York real-estate buffoon, people didn’t take it
that seriously. New Yorkers mostly ignored him because that’s what New Yorkers
do with crazy people. New Yorkers reacted to Trump
the way you react to a guy who gets on the subway
with a lizard on his shoulder. That was Trump. Except in his case,
he has two lizards. In fact, Trump’s
entire origin story is basically that of a crazy guy who,
after years of being ignored, finally heard,
“Hey, cool lizard.” [ Laughter ] His entire campaign
for president started as a desperate attempt to
get people to take him seriously as he himself admitted
to his supporters during a speech in 2016. -A lot of people have laughed
at me over the years. Now they’re not laughing
so much, I’ll tell you. -That is something a villain
would say in a superhero movie. Don’t believe me? Because that line is
almost verbatim a line from the new Joker movie. -A lot of people have laughed
at me over the years. Now they’re not laughing
so much, I’ll tell you. -Everyone laughed at me.
Well, no one’s laughing now. [ Laughter ] -Now, sometimes Trump lies
for the obvious reasons — like, you know,
to cover up crimes. Sometimes he makes up weird
stuff for no apparent reason. And then sometimes, there’s
just little bits of junk floating around in his polluted
brain that he belches up during rambling speeches like
the time he claimed during a speech on trade that
Canadians were smuggling shoes back across the border to avoid
paying tariffs on footwear, tariffs that do not exist. -There was a story two days ago
in a major newspaper talking about people living
in Canada coming into the United States
and smuggling things back into Canada because
the tariffs are so massive. The tariffs to get common items
back into Canada are so high that they have to
smuggle them in. They buy shoes,
then they wear them. The scuff them up. They make them sound old
or look old. -They make the shoes sound old?
What does that mean? Do they complain
about rap music? Do they hit the roof
of the apartment with a broom? “Turn that racket down! We got some boots
trying to sleep!” And, of course, it isn’t just
that Trump lies, it’s that he concocts
elaborate fantasies to justify those lies
even when they’re contradicted by playing video evidence that you can see and hear
for yourself like the time he accidentally
called the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, “Tim Apple” and then tripled down
with a series of bizarre and shifting excuses. -The President is
still playing clean-up after the referred to Apple CEO
Tim Cook as “Tim Apple.” -We appreciate it very much,
Tim Apple. -The coverage of Tim Apple has apparently gotten
under Trump’s skin. At Mar-a-Lago on Friday night
with no cameras present, Trump reportedly explained
to a group of donors what really happened. Axios reports Trump told
the donors that he actually said “Tim Cook Apple,” like,
really fast, and the “Cook” part
of the sentence was soft but all you heard from the fake
news, he said, was “Tim Apple.” -A few days after that,
Trump wrote this. “At a recent roundtable meeting
of business executives and long after formally
introducing Tim Cook of Apple, I quickly referred to Tim plus
Apple as ‘Tim Apple’ as an easy way to save time
and words.” -My favorite part of that tweet
is when he writes out “Tim plus Apple,” like
he’s carving it into a tree. [ Laughter ] Trump has been at war
with reality virtually his entire adult life,
and that war took one of its most insane turns yet
this week when the President
of the United States spread disinformation
about a hurricane and then repeatedly
went out of his way to insist he was actually right. You might remember
this whole thing started when Trump tweeted
over the weekend that Alabama would be hit
by Hurricane Dorian, and then 20 minutes later,
the national weather service had to tweet Alabama will not
see any impacts of Dorian. “We repeat —
No impacts from Hurricane Dorian will be felt across Alabama.” That was 20 minutes later. The National Weather Service has to monitor
the President’s tweets as closely as they monitor
actual hurricanes, which actually makes sense
because when you think of it, Donald Trump is the hurricane,
except unlike regular Hurricanes that eventually die down,
everyday, Trump blows harder. After he was corrected
by his own government, Trump doubled down,
as you probably saw. Yesterday, he seemed to alter
a forecast on the storm’s path from last week
with a circle added in Sharpie to include Alabama. My favorite thing about this is that he didn’t even try
to blend it in. He could have at least sent
an intern to Kinko’s to print up a new chart. “So, yeah,
what are you trying to do here?” “Uh, we want to fake
a hurricane map to retrofit a lie the President
told to the American people.” “Okay.
When do you need it by?” Trump is even too lazy
to lie convincingly, and he used a Sharpie,
which gives it away because the only person
in the world who’s famous for using Sharpies
is Donald Trump. It is a dead give away. That’s like turning to the
Avengers and saying, “All right, which one of you shot me in the ass
with an arrow? Hawkeye?
Was it you, Hawkeye?” And then, later, Trump was asked
about the altered map, and he was so flummoxed,
all he could do was barf up a lengthy,
incoherent word salad. -You showed us the map earlier
of the initial forecast. It appeared to have been
extended to include Alabama. Can you explain
how that came to be? -No, I just know Alabama was
in the original forecast. They thought it would get it
as a piece of it. It was supposed to go —
Actually, we have a better map than that, which is
going to be presented where we had many lines
going directly, many models, each line being a model, and they were going
directly through, and then, in all cases,
Alabama was hit. They actually gave that
a 95%-chance probability. It turned out that
that was not what happened. It made the right turn
up the coast. Everyone’s gonna be
in great shape because we’re gonna
take care of it, regardless. Regardless. But the original
path was through Florida. That was probably three days — I think that’s probably three,
four days old. -I thought you wanted to save
time and words! [ Laughter ] I’ll make up for this. I’ll make up for this. I’ll say Tim Apple, and that
will buy all that time back. Bill Microsoft —
That’s five minutes right there. Also, if it’s three
or four days old, then why are you
telling us this? Why are you showing us a map
of a hurricane that’s so out of date, you had
to edit it with a Sharpie? At his next briefing, he’s just
gonna hold up a map of Pangea. “So, this is
a little out of date. Little out of date,
but as you can see, all the countries are
crammed together, one land mass, and, uh, the hurricane,
it was gonna — it was supposed to hit all these
stegosauruses over here.” [ Laughter, applause ] Then the reporter asked
a natural follow-up question — Did you use a sharpie
to alter the map? And Trump acted like he had
no idea what happened. -Is that map that
you showed today — looks like it was almost, like,
a Sharpie. -I don’t know. I don’t know.
I don’t know. -It is so damning how
he just keeps getting quieter. He’s like a kid
who hit a baseball through his neighbor’s window. “Who did this?” “I don’t know. I-I don’t know. [ Quietly ]
I don’t know.” Also, what do you mean
you don’t know? Are you claiming someone else
defaced your map? Like some prankster snuck in
and sprayed graffiti on here? “Yeah. They crept in here
and drew a circle and Sharpie on it,
and then signed their names, Tim plus Apple.” [ Laughter, applause ] Then, last night,
Trump still couldn’t let it go and tweeted what he claimed was
a map of the original forecast dated August 28th, which didn’t
prove anything anyway because it was four days before
his incorrect tweet on Sunday. -On Wednesday,
the President showed a map trying again to prove
his incorrect point. But weather experts say
the President was using an out-of-date map. There were
much fresher forecasts. -President Trump tweeted this. It’s called a spaghetti model. It shows every possible path the hurricane is forecasted
to take. -Those spaghetti models were
from August 28th. By the time the President
tweeted Alabama at 10:51 a.m. on Sunday, the forecast track
had moved well east. -These were all the computer
models, the spaghettis. -That’s right. He tweeted a map of what’s known
as the spaghetti models. Of course,
Trump probably thought it was a map that tells you
where you can find spaghetti. “It’s very helpful. I didn’t even know you could get
spaghetti in Alabama, but…” So, the President
has already been corrected by his own government, altered
an official Hurricane forecast with a Sharpie, rambled on
about it at a press conference, and then tweeted about it, and yet, somehow, this fever
dream has not come to an end because Trump woke up
this morning, and, again, railed off another deranged
tweet storm about it. Trump tweeted in the early days
of the hurricane, when it was predicted
that Dorian would go through Miami
or West Palm Beach, certain models strongly
suggested that Alabama and Georgia would be hit. And then Hurricane Dorian took
a different path up along the east coast. Why did you put that
in parenthesis? That’s the only part
of the tweet that’s correct. At this rate, Trump’s gonna
start adding tiny footnotes to his tweets with the correct
information at the bottom. “I just nuked something…
a Hot Pocket in the microwave.” [ Laughter,
cheers and applause ] This whole thing perfectly
captures the constant exhausting bewilderment of living
through the Trump era. There’s a very real humanitarian
crisis unfolding in the Bahamas and a dangerous Hurricane is
threatening the mainland U.S., and, meanwhile, the President is
obsessing over a map he doctored to defend
an embarrassing mistake that he is now repeatedly
lying about. Almost nothing that comes
out of his mouth is true. In fact, at any time he speaks,
the odds that he’s lying are… -A 95%-chance probability. -This has been “A Closer Look.”

  1. This is what border's me about this administration. If you say something wrong admit it, apologise and move on. Then we know you're at least trying. We see and hear these people arrogance and clear less attitudes every day and blame us for keeping track like we're crazy. Am tired. When is this going to end.?

  2. Hi. I'm a conservative, sorry for invading your safe space / intellect free echo chamber, I just wanted to tell you all that the joke's on you once more:

    https://youtu.be/3-0ApyklFxc?t=297

    (BTW, I think the Google algorithm isn't so bad after all… it recommended this trash here to me after viewing Dice's video.)
    (Also BTW, I think Trump makes mistakes, but that's nothing compared to the hypocrisy of the left which I find utterly revolting.)

  3. Get over it, the National Weather Service miss this one. All theses simulated weather programs didn’t do anything until the very last minute. Trump’s job doesn’t include weatherman.

  4. The only person lying here is you and if I hear any more words come pouring out of your mouth I'm going to have to break this tablet and if I ever see you again I'll have to break whatever I see you on he is a common man if he would come to a complete stop the Democrats nose would go to feet up his ass give him a break the only person lying is you man you have no proof that he lied back off of him man 💯 😠 when did it come such cool thing to be little people and ridicule them just because you feel little little man. Russia has respect what do you think would in Russia if you were saying this about Putin ¿?

  5. He said Tim Cook the CEO of Apple, but he said it so fast that all the camera picked up was Tim Apple. 🤷🏻‍♂️🤔😂😂

  6. Trump already sounded like a movie villan… His inauguration speech was plagerised from Bane's speech in Batman: The Dark Knight Rises.

  7. he says the original path was through alabama & < a min later says original path was through florida! 🤹🏼‍♂️🤹🏼‍♀️🎭😹👍🏼🤞🏼✌🏼🙏🏼🙌🏼👏🏼🤝🤫🤭🙄😲😱🤓🤩😇🤣😂🤔😂🙃😝🤓🧐😊😁🤣😂 🤣 that’s funny 😆 how he is still president!!! i have a friend who like me is also Nova Scotian has said “he created many jobs my dude” i respond with “that’s selfish! we need to look out for the world🗺 🌍 🌎& we [earthling humans] all need to have at least a few realistic peaceful, helpful, encouraging, gun cracking, common goals that of which with trump incharge down there 👇🏼 will never happen. also what about the tariff wars & foreign middle eastern societies disputes he involved himself in or all the against him allegations.. leave out the allegations just look at him! watch him him in a news video without laughing in pity, anger, disbelief, surprise, etc..”

  8. Marian Williams said we could turn around the hurricane with mind power while the DON said to Nuke it and the left bought it ?? The left is scary ???

  9. Seth get some new material you suck you have no talent on what you come up with something on your own and be a talented person but you can’t you’re a fucking idiot with no talent and you’re having to eat trumps asshole

  10. Trump must have made realestate plans with Alabamas beautiful views of the Atlantic, perfect for a golf course. He must have thought he would be first to think of it.

  11. You wouldn’t even have a show right now if it wasn’t for President Trump. That’s all you talk about. You’re a jealous and obsessed person and it shows. Unbelievable.

  12. Its amazing how dumb librals are, even CNN said it would impact alabama. Im glad this is all you guys ever have as a "gotcha" moment 2020 will be great.

  13. Trump is an evil geniuos who KNOWS americans are very easy to manipulate. While you laugh about his "mistake" he doesn't have to deal with the president ignoring the victims of natural dissasters.

  14. The CROOKED scum bag elite of DEMONS are LYING SO MUCH THROUGH THEIR TEETH. WE DON'T EVEN BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU IDIOT ARE SAYING TOO. ONLY DEMONS BELIEVE IN YOUR WORDS MORON. LOL!! KILLARY =OBAMA=THIEVES=MURDERERS=LIARS=ELITE SCUMS. The body bags of the Clintons will execute them. Trust that, and the others too….you can count on that.

  15. Each line being a model ??? What a buffoon , does he really think he’s fooling anyone , no seriously is he that dense ?

  16. The only intelligent thing I've heard Trump say is about Canadians smuggling shoes… I'm Canadian, I've done it. However, it is not because of tariffs but import taxes and duties. Our government should not be charging 20% or more to bring things we've already paid for into the country. Or they should be doing something to keep companies from charging us 50% more for identical products so we just buy them here.

    Not related to shoes, but here's an example: when redoing my son's bedroom, it was $19.99 + 15% tax (New Brunswick) for ONE Paw Patrol curtain panel without tie-backs in Canada. In America, it was $19.99 + 5.5% tax (Maine) for TWO panels and TWO tie-backs. Everything was the same – twice as much here as in America, and this was before our dollar lost value.

  17. Trump’s Alabama gaffe wasn’t a mistake. It was a strategy to distract the idiotic masses by giving them the feeling like he was the idiot and not them. Trump’s no idiot. He had inside knowledge of what the hurricane was gonna do before it even formed. It’s called weather modification technology. It’s classified. When you have inside information on where the REAL ESTATE is gonna be hot, you can make billions. Get real. Presidents don’t make gaffes like this by accident.

  18. Trump supporters are idiots they look really stupid now jhon Bolton resigns trump wanna use nuclear weapons on hurricane if Obama did any of these things there would already be impeachment

  19. None of your collection comes close to the insane crap coming from Democrats (Communists), trying to steal INALIENABLE RIGHTS GUARANTEED IN THE CONSTITUTION. The professional hurricane forecasters change those predicted path charts several times a day, he was as correct as most of their predictions, (later changed to show how the storm went after the fact. I'm sick of morons like you lying about the president and science, to trick people into being slaves to lies. NOTHING COMING OUT OF YOUR MOUTH IS TRUTH! Trump 2020.

  20. If you tools would grow up, you could find a way to beat Trump in the
    upcoming election. But instead, you do this. I bet none of the
    commenters even listened to the words Trump said. I bet money you saw
    the tagline, watched it while tuned out and reading article describing
    the same claim as the video. I bet money that you did not once think to
    listen to the words Trump said, instead of listening to or reading the
    opinions of yapping muppets.

    Of course I kinda doubt half you knit-wits are going to even watch the full video in question. but here it is: @

  22. Ok so he holds up a NOAA chart, he states that this is an older chart. He doesn't draw on it at all. He is only showing and he clearly says this, what could have happened. And shows how lucky we all really got considering.

    Get a life people. You are just giving him ammo to use against ya'll.

  23. Trump is the greatest president this country may have ever had and you hacks should be happy you even have a job you need no talent to have.wait till all the real investigations come out
    As far as lying goes it's your bread and butter.nice rating. Well the country always need ditch diggers or street sweepers

  24. If he weren't President it would be hilarious to think that a guy who has been perpetually and serially unfaithful to every woman in his life still had his biggest and most damaging divorce from reality.

  26. Who lies about weather? 🤦‍♀️ it’s not Trump? Seriously! Wanna laugh show the clips of Mike Sidel winds wrong direction and people strolling behind him. Same dude in a ditch this is desperation that makes Trump haters look like damn fools!! As someone who’s lived in Fl and SC The Weather Channel and CNN got busted!! Miss the days of Johnny Carson he didn’t lose his audience over politics. The fact that you believe this as a comedian puts your career and character to shame! It was shown on television when they didn’t know what the hell Dorian was doing. Conspiracy or weather people don’t know anymore than Washington base weather station. Idiot! 😂

  27. Trump is trying to get us back for not taking him seriously all his life till now. We all laughed at him, ignored him, he was lonely and desperate for attention. He's got our attention now don't he?

  28. So he admits when it comes to Canadian tariffs it falls on the people, but not his tariffs? Sidenote- tim apples gotta be top 5 greatest trump goofs

  29. So does he think that the Canadians are cheating the U.S out of this "tariff" money? Isn''t it the GST or PST or MSG or LOL that they pay when they bring in products not made in Canada? I live on the Border so I am pretty sure there is truth to the story but it sounded like he Completely misunderstood. But maybe I am wrong.
