President Donald Trump appears to have told yet another lie about the weather following his tweet last Sunday falsely warning Alabama residents to get ready for Hurricane Dorian’s arrival.
According to Vice News senior political reporter Cameron Joseph, while discussing his campaign rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina, the president said: “So we have now people standing in line trying to get into the arena and I will tell you that they are soaking wet….We have a tremendous crowd.”
Joseph shared a picture from outside the rally venue and noted: “It’s hot as hell but sunny here.”
