>> Hurricane Dorian has already claimed the lives of five individuals in the Bahamas. It was a category five storm as it was battering the Bahamas, and the death toll is expected to rise as we get more and more reports. It’s really a devastating story to say the least, but what’s even more devastating. Is the type of reaction that we’re getting from someone who’s supposed to represent us, Donald Trump. Now Donald Trump lashed out at ABC news reporter Jonathan Karl for fact-checking him. And what did he fact-check him on? Well, the statements that he’s gonna make is in this next clip, take a look.
>> We don’t know where it’s going to hit, but we have an idea, probably a little bit than the original course. The original source was dead into Florida, now it seems to be going up toward South Carolina, toward North Carolina. Georgia’s gonna be hit, Alabama’s gonna get a piece of it, it looks like. And it l may get a little piece of a great place, it’s called Alabama. And Alabama could even be in for at least some very strong winds and something more than that could be. This just came up unfortunately, cuz the size of the storm that we were talking about. So for Alabama, just please be careful. >> So on multiple occasions, Trump has claimed that the storm is going to hit Alabama. He was fact-checked by the National Weather Service which claimed that it will not hit Alabama, not even close. And ABC news also fact-checked him in this next report, take a look. >> He marveled at the size of the Hurricane. >> I’m not sure that I’ve ever even heard of a category five, I knew it existed. And I’ve seen some category fours, you don’t even see them that much.
But a category five is something that I don’t know that I’ve ever even heard the term. >> In fact, there been several category five hurricanes since he became president. He also misstated the storm’s possible trajectory. >> Alabama could even be in for, I believe some very strong winds and something more than that, it could be. So for Alabama, just please be careful also. >> Not long after that, the National Weather Service corrected the president saying, Alabama will not see any impacts from Dorian. The President, who cancelled a trip the Poland, in order to monitor the storm. Spent much of today at his golf club in Virginia, CNN capturing these images of him playing golf. >> The White House Press Secretary, Stephanie Grisham, says that he has been getting updates every hour, all day long. Presumably, David, including while he was playing golf. >> So that ABC news report led to Trump having a meltdown on Twitter. as one can expect. I would argue that the part about him playing golf probably got under his skin. But here’s what he said of Jonathan Karl on Twitter.
He says, such a phony hurricane report by lightweight reporter, Jonathan Karl, of ABC News. >> Child. >> I suggested yesterday at FEMA that along with Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. Even Alabama could possibly come into play, which was true. I’m just gonna stop there, it’s not true, he was fact-checked by the National Weather Service. Which obviously knows more than Trump about where the hurricane is going, which states are gonna be impacted by it.
You don’t even have to go to the National Weather Service, anyone in this country knows more than Donald Trump does. I don’t understand why he feels the need to put Alabama residents in a panic. When there’s absolutely no evidence indicating that storm is gonna hit that state. >> I know, he’s a pathological liar, so the first lie is done for, I think, a couple of reasons. One is, just carelessly, he doesn’t care, he’s just verbal diarrhea, non-stop. He might have accidentally put Oregon in there, it doesn’t matter, but once he’s lying he’s got to stick to it. So, you’re a light-weight reporter, like well, national weather service, like wait everything. Your ratings are bad, it’s gonna hit Alabama! Loser, idiot >> When you’re insecure, you’re not ever able to admit that you’ve made a mistake. That is honestly a trait that you see in a lot of insecure people, that’s who Donald Trump is. He cannot ever admit when he’s wrong, and he’s wrong here, but he’s gonna double down. >> He’s wrong every day, ten times a day. Okay, so then the second part of it, Alabama is a red state.
So he said, the great people like the ones in Alabama. When we thought the hurricane was gonna hit Puerto Rico, he said, another one, when is it ever gonna end? As if it’s Puerto Rico’s fault, so when it’s Puerto Rico, goddamn Puerto Rico. But, hey, Alabama be careful, you’re my beloved, beloved white, white voters who are Republican. I love you Alabama, you’re not gonna get hit, I alone can protect you. Okay, Puerto Rico is an island surrounded by water, big water, ocean water. >> You on the other hand, are nowhere near the water, but that’s okay. I’m gonna make up things and then pretend that I saved you. How do you save them from a hurricane? All right, anyway- >> And not only that, I mean, he can’t protect anyone. In fact, he’s taken money out of, hurricane and extreme weather relief funds and diverted it to Border Patrol. He doesn’t care about keeping anyone safe, period, including the people of Alabama. >> Yeah, and so, the golf, he criticized Obama 1,000 times over golf. >> We have some examples. >> Okay, go there, now wait til you see him, this moron on category five hurricanes.
And if you’re a Trump supporter, you don’t wanna watch the rest of this video. Because you’ll feel deep shame and guilt at how stupid you are. >> I don’t know if they’re capable of that, but let’s go to graphic six, please. Because again, he was golfing while news and reports of the hurricane were breaking. And he had a lot of negative things to say about Obama and his golfing habit. Let’s go to graphic six, President Obama should have gone to Louisiana days ago instead of golfing, too little too late. That’s a tweet from August, 2016, by the way- >> This is now, okay, later, fast forward to Trump. He’s in the middle of the hurricane, Rick Scott, the former governor of Florida, now the Senator from Florida. Had to say no, no, I’m sure that he was getting reports while golfing. Okay, be proud, be really proud. >> Let’s give you more, this is a tweet from May of 2016.
