  1. What NEXT?! There is not popcorn in the world for this!
    It *would* be comical if it wasn’t so corrupt and so disgusting.

  2. The title of this story should be “Snowflake in Chief Finds a Way to Ruin Even Weather Reports.”

    • @Pete Lind exactly. Stupid right wingers are just mad they have to work and we don’t 😆. Once Bernie is elected we’ll have free stuff and more big booty latinas. Mexico should keep all the guys and kids though. Bernie 2020!

    • @Doctor Deadbody Bravo, bravo, bravo! Well-stated FACTS.

  3. B-A-N-A-N-A R-E-P-U-B-L-I-C !

    By now there should be no people left wondering how things like ‘Hitler’ could happen.
    That’s how it happens.
    Enablers are everywhere and transparency is missing.

    Get of this slope in 2020 or the US as we know it is toast.

      Joan Sparky remember… Your talking about and to Soviet Americans. 1+1 does = Bacon to these dumb dumbs.

      morganbesh a strong country doesn’t fall in 3 years by a fat Orange man. But a weak country apparently does in style.

    • @Kent Brian There it is, right one time. The typical Trumper “America is a Republic, not a democracy!” mantra. A Republic IS a democracy, genius. Find a dictionary, please.

  4. Gotta love the way that Rachel breaks down information or a story.

    • Sandlin22
      Whatever are you on about?

    • @Stephen Paulson My conundrum is why are these folks punishing themselved by continuously viewing vids tht they find distasteful/factually flawedl/and built on falsehoods. If it were me… I’d change channels; I’d follow reporting tht I deemed truthful; I wouldn’t waste my time on anything less than quality commentaries.

    • Thank you.i just love the TRUTH.

  5. Thanks so much for that history and truth of today

    • Dan Ozomatli : I appreciate Rachel giving more of the story and historical meaning, as it gives news stories context. History repeats itself; perhaps American citizens will remember past deeds and actions.

  6. Straight from the Dictator’s Playbook!
    Donnie Dictator’s WAR on Reality and WAR on Science Continues…….
    SMH

  7. Looks like foggy conditions with low visibility are forming inside Wilbur’s head.

  8. Well Trump is a sociopath, a malignant narcissist, and the Chosen One to boot. So he isn’t obligated to listen to anyone. And he will fire anyone who dares to try and tell him anything. Even telling him the time of the day is enough to get you fired. The time of day will be whatever the chosen one says it is.

  9. Everyday american citizens get closer to becoming slaves and everyday they seem to care less. Hilarious.

  10. Honestly, watching US politics is like watching a 1,000-day-long Monty Python skit. It’s so ridiculous, it’s literally hard to accept. When your weather reporting becomes compromised because it doesn’t pander to Dear Leader, JFC, all hope is lost.

    • @Hallands Menved Break up dead lock, the man is clueless.You talking as if what he does is well thought out.He has no goal , no end game and you are here talking foolishness.One thing that is necessary for proper functioning of society is order- been able to plan into the future.Businesses cannot plan because they do not know when Trump will cause a disruption with a tweet.You think getting up daily and just deciding to do or not to do without thinking about the consequences positive or negative is a good thing.You know the problem he could have caused with this weather thing.

    • “On second thought, let’s not go to Camelot. It’s a silly place”
      – JFK

    • Trane Francks – LOL!! I equalled it to a exhaustingly long Three Stooges episode.

      You are spot on. It’s a circus….and a bad one at that

    • Oh, come on… I’ve yet to hear Bubba do a good British accent!

  11. Basically, NOAA is missing some letterhead stationery and the message was written in Sharpie.

  12. Wilbur Ross…the human melting wax bust. He definitely needs to go, this is inexcusable. Compromising the accurate relaying of vital weather information that is vital to public safety over protecting the Presidents fragile ego is such an unconscionable breach of public trust.

    Welcome to Soviet Amerika, where scientific results which contradict the dogma of the Politburo gets you quietly shuffled to a collective farm in Yakutsk, while “scientists” who throw garbage science down a bottomless hole get money grants and the right to purchase bluejeans from the commissars.

    All he had to do was say ‘Oops, I mixed up a forecast from a few days prior’

    • But that, even if still inaccurate, would have made him a man.

    • @Tzvi Krasner Indeed, they cannot believe their own lying eyes and ears, only “The Trump”

    • He could have even “gracefully” (even if untruthfully) blamed it on someone else: “I was given wrong information in a changing weather situation. Thankfully the storm turned from the predicted path and Alabama is safe.”

    • If he had any wits or grace, he could have quickly ended this.
      But this is a pattern…imagine if “covfefe” was explained with a joke; “As you know, I have really big hands and fingers; sometimes they press several letters at once…”

    • Defeats the whole point of “Sharpiegate”.

  15. Bye Wilbur…nap time just got extended for you enjoy your retirement.

  16. Wilber Ross should resign AND Donald Trump should walk out the door with him.

  17. What next for Trump?? Change the locations of the countries to defend his ignorance? This stable genius is too dangerous!

    Wilbur Ross should be fired for non payment of taxes to his country of origin, he is so corrupt, it’s disgusting.

  19. Easy to be right when you bully the scientists to falsify reports.

  20. Wow. Weather report propaganda. A new low. Even Fox News doesn’t lie about the weather.
