The Washington Post actually paid for one of its reporters to head to Alabama and report on how Hurrican Dorian missed the state.

No sign of Trump’s hurricane here in Alabama
Trees stand. Grocery stores are fully stocked. Boats remain unsunk.

Here’s the opener:
MOBILE, Ala. — The city stands.​
The grocery stores are fully stocked, the Home Depot has no lack of generators, tarps and plywood, and it’s business as usual at the Waffle Houses.​
Boaters on the Mobile River have been urged to caution — only because a group of manatees were spotted frolicking nearby. The highway south runs past unsunk boats and unbroken masts all the way to the mouth of the Gulf of Mexico, where resort-town general stores report no panicked runs on supplies — not now and not a week ago, when Trump first claimed Alabama would likely be slammed by Hurricane Dorian.​


Remember this article the next time the Post talks about how they’re the real journalists.

Shoutout to the lucky reporter who got a free trip to the beach because orange man bad

And when Trump doesn't give a warning they will bitch about that also.

At least he was prepared to give the state aid.

Thanks to the TRUMP, WAPO hired on another 200 reporters (well as of 2018). They can use the extra manpower to chase down TRUMP LIES! With pictures!

And yet rightie talking heads thought it was some sort of giant scoop when they ran down Obama's report card from like the 5th grade or some such thing. Give me a break. Anything the president touches is news, and has been at least since Clinton.


Thats just as dumb.
