“Americans are picking up their possessions to flee a superstorm. And the president is picking up a sharpie to redraw a weather map,” Buttigieg said Saturday at the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s state convention.

Trump has continued to insist that Alabama lies in the storm’s path, despite a National Weather Service tweet contradicting it, to the point of amending a National Hurricane Center map with a Sharpie to show Alabama in its path.

On Friday evening, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration rebuked the earlier NWS tweet in a statement, prompting condemnation from meteorologists and some former NOAA personnel.
