I learned to add & subtract.... but that is all a lie, because I learned it a long time ago.


Did he predict it before the NWS informed him, or did he make an informed tweet after being informed by the NWS.... Yes, dates matter.
You enjoy lying to make yourself feel better. I feel sorry for anyone in real life who deals with you

But to your point, the people that lap up his divisive lies, who are looking for reasons to discredit truth so this guy can continue to tear down the fabric of our Nation would have lapped this up (even though it proves him wrong) as evidence of the "lying media" and "enemy of the people".

I try to stay positive, but this is rediculous. They guy misspoke, which is not a crime. Doubling down with lies to cover what may well have been an honest mistake, THAT is the problem. He ruins his own credibility, and then whines when people call him out on it.
This is the point. ANYONE can screw up and make an uninformed or hasty statement. But people with integrity freely admit their error and move on. Anyone that continues to try to uphold a statement or finding that was shown to be incorrect would not survive long in any real business or industry. They are effectively useless.

Trump has the mindset of an adolescent. Not sure if he's borderline or narcissistic but at the end of the day the diagnosis doesn't really matter. As far as being a leader he is useless to us.

I lied? Yet, there it is from the NWS, putting Alabama in harms way. The NWS is lying too?
Was it a prediction or an informed tweet? Hindsight is always 20/20

Do they have any other choice but to try to change the subject or to deflect? There is absolutely no way for anyone to overlook Trump's incompetence - they know it and that's why you will never get a coherent response. In a weird way you have to be fascinated by people that are so easily manipulated that they will continue to try to support a leader that is clearly working against their best interests.

Sure was. The difference is, he didn't plan to do it beforehand, because he wasn't an habitual liar and a narcissist.
