The internet mocks Trump on Sharpie map edit


Democrats are taking to social media using viral Sharpie-related hashtags to knock President Trump after he displayed a map of Hurricane Dorian’s trajectory that appeared to have been altered with black marker.

About a day after Trump referred to a seemingly doctored map of Dorian’s original path that also looped in Alabama — a forecast he has repeatedly backed, despite meteorologists saying otherwise — several hashtags, including #SharpieGate, #TrumpSharpie and #SharpiePresident, trended on Twitter. Multiple Democratic lawmakers and high-profile officials were among those weighing in to mock the president.
