“This is a forecast track that the president held up from last week where it looked like the hurricane was going to slam into the Florida coast maybe even across the peninsula and get into the Gulf of Mexico,” Roberts responded. “You can see somebody with a Sharpie or some other writing instruments added a little bit to the cone of uncertainty, which was not a part of the official forecast, which included the Florida panhandle and parts of Alabama.”

Roberts went on to note that Trump “had tweeted over the weekend that Alabama appeared to be in the crosshairs and you can probably extrapolate that if it had continued on that track, Alabama might have been affected.”

“But it was never part of the official forecast,” he admitted.
