WASHINGTON - It's been six days and US President Donald Trump and the US media can't seem to let go of a tit-for-tat involving the danger Alabama faced during Hurricane Dorian.

By Friday, however, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration , the agency in charge of the NWS, seemed to vindicate Trump. Over and over this week he kept talking about Alabama, even when no other officials did, and he raged at the media for pointing out that Alabama still hadn't been hit and, in fact, never had been in real danger.In the Oval Office, Trump showed off a weather map showing an earlier - now completely out of date - forecast of Dorian's track that predicted the storm passing right across Florida, rather than turning up the coast.
