Fox News WH Correspondent Just Destroyed Trump Over His False Hurricane Claims: Watch
Donald Trump continued to insist that he was right about Hurricane Dorian hitting Alabama. On Thursday he tweeted saying that whoever reported otherwise was “fake news.”
“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!” Trump tweeted on Thursday.

It didn’t take long for Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts to call out the president and explain why he was completely wrong.
“The president tweeted out a graphic of hurricane model plots… to prove that Alabama was at risk and some of those tracks did come very close to the eastern part of Alabama,” he said.
“But those spaghetti models were from Thursday, August 28th. By the time the president tweeted about Alabama at 10:51 a.m. on Sunday, the forecast track had moved well east.”
“This is the 8:00 in the morning warning on Sunday the 1st and you can see they’re indicating that Dorian would stay well-off shore and well away from Alabama,” Roberts explained.
