That's how I'm reading it. Gonna be fun next time Kevin is due in front of a Congressional Committee. I it's one that Ted Lieu is on. That would be all kinds ofSLQ wrote: ↑Fri Sep 06, 2019 12:54 pmSo let met get this straight. Trump sets up a press opportunity for a hurricane update. Trump arranges to have in the room the map with the real cone closest to Alabama, even though it was presented to him days before. Prior to allowing the press in the room, Trump takes the old map and draws the new "cone" on it with his sharpie. Trump places the altered map behind the desk. The press opportunity begins. Trump starts talking about Alabama. Trump casually asks Kevin to haul out the altered map, as though an afterthought and as though he just typically has old hurricane maps behind the resolute desk. Kevin (who surely knows about the sharpie alteration) hauls out the map, fumbling with it in his nervousness. Trump displays his masterpiece as evidence he's not a idiot, apparently honestly believing no one would notice the sharpie doesn't match the rest of the map. Do I have that right?Slim Cognito wrote: ↑Fri Sep 06, 2019 9:41 amIn today's least surprising news (at least as of 9:30 am eastern) CNN reports trump himself wielded the Sharpie on the Dorian map.

Now what I want to see is a reporter ask trump directly if he altered the map with a Sharpie. Especially after his shocked, "I don't know, I don't know, I don't know" response when first brought up.
Why do these staffers stay and sink their reputations for this man? Why?
