WH Spokeswoman Gets Shut Down After Attempting To Defend Trump’s Hurricane Map
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham tried to defend Donald Trump on Thursday by attacking CNN, but it did not go well for her.
Donald Trump has been insisting that Alabama was in danger of getting hit by Hurrican Dorian, which is far from the truth.
But Trump is very hardheaded and continued to insist he was correct, and even altered a weather map with a marker in an attempt to prove he was right
Attempting to defend Trump, Grisham attacked CNN for mistakingly identifying Alabama as Mississippi in a map graphic, which was fixed just seconds later.

But CNN and others fired back at Grisham. Here are some of the best responses:
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.

You should totally address this in your press briefings that YOU NEVER HAVE, “Press Secretary”.

Sure, but I'm pretty confident they aren't going to respond by insisting that really is Mississippi.

It the same as when google scrubbed the word covfefe from the internet because PDJT used it in a tweet.
He mentions Alabama and pffft it’s gone…

Plowin' the road for Trump.
That's not in your job description. I pay your salary. Not the Trump campaign. Act like it.
