Exactly. Many people on both sides are saying this. I'm hearing it from lots of people - lots of people are saying it to me. They're saying, "Mr. Barron, it's rather common for an agency's spokesperson to issue a press release... that's their job. Anywho... let's not quibble over minor details concerning the press release. The most important takeaways from the entire Dorian saga, from the perspective of most, are that the storm didn't put a scratch on the Southern White House and the Prez was right again."MarkMathews » 07 Sep 2019 2:36 pm » wrote:It's rather common for an agency's spokesperson to issue a press release... that's their job.

Who wrote it?
It says 'Statement attributable to a NOAA spokesperson.'

So he got two people to fall on the sword for him, one of which refused to even attach their name to it.
Dan Sobien, president of the NWS Employees Union, stated in a tweet Friday evening that “The hard-working employees of the NWS had nothing to do with the utterly disgusting and disingenuous tweet sent out by NOAA management tonight.”
And a meteorologist in Alabama Tweeted this:

Who wrote it?
He's right. The only issue is whether NOAA backed the president. And it did. Officially. On its letterhead.Cannonpointer » 07 Sep 2019 10:40 am » wrote:When you deliberately show it in the most negative light, you can make anything look hinky.Blackvegetable » 07 Sep 2019 10:30 am » wrote:

Obliged to pen a rationalization for Willful Stupidity Born of Indolence, the call goes out for someone to sign - and EVERYONE refuses.
I can confirm my colleague's statement. President Trump had nothing to do with sharpiegate. I was busy playing golf when the incident occurred.Misty » 05 Sep 2019 9:00 pm » wrote:Mr. Miller!John Miller » 05 Sep 2019 8:55 pm » wrote:President Trump didn't take the sharpie to the map.

Being a very loyal man - possibly the most loyal man ever, and for sure the most loyal man ever to win the Whitehouse - with, I might add, the largest margin in history, - President Trump allowed himself to take the blame.
