Ross threatened to fire top NOAA officials for contradicting Trump, NYT reports Ross threatened to fire top NOAA officials for contradicting Trump, NYT reportsThe New York Times is reporting their Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross threatened to fire top officials at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or Noah that followed a tweet from the Weather Service Office in Alabama. That flatly contradicted. President Trump’s claim that moment about hurricane Dorian, threatening Alabama with at that time it was not threatening. What do you think about that? I wish, I could say, I’m surprised, but if you’ve watched this Administration, I don’t think you should be surprised at in the reason, for that is simple @ donaldtrump Court in the Washington Post count is said more than 12,000 things to do that are false or misleading. During his presidency, that has an impact generally speaking when the president knighted states essence of our fault right, but it has more than an impact just on the president and what he says it is. It sets a tone in a culture that trickled down into the administration and I frankly worried into our broader society and culture that it’s more important to make love. Who is here to the truth, it’s more important to listen to the pressing. I say not a meteorologist, then, to people who are trained in the weather umbrella for the day. We’Re talking about the federal government telling people whether they’re, not they’re in the path of a hurricane saying whatever you’re supposed to be evacuating, is dangerous. Evacuating is dangerous. I need to know that they can trust the government and rely on that information. The idea that the president would have made through these outlandish claims of the past week is bad enough now to know that not only are cabinet members threatening to fire people for telling the truth about basic intro, eroding confidence. If it’s really really important public information – and that’s really what this is all about – these departments and agencies are there to provide assessment both within the US government and the American public that are based on fact that are based on the realities on the ground and not Driven by the whims of a president who doesn’t want to acknowledge that he got something wrong, the White House could have just said and made a mistake and move on, but instead they’re trying to take punitive actions against public servants for doing their jobs and you’re to Susan’S point: this is a public safety issue, but this is how, as we’ve seen time and again, the president views his administration. He believes that all these departments and agencies are there service him not to service the American public and to punish people, because they didn’t tow the White House line. That is a creep toward authoritarianism.. What we doing Church of the Weather Service we’re trying to make sure people in Alabama know what’s going on.? What might have happened a few days ago in assessment for five days earlier, but at that particular moment they wanted to reassure people in Alabama. Don’T worry, there’s no hurricane threats facing you, irrespective of what the president might say by their own superiors, wolf and experts that could in many regards to get more better-paying jobs in the private sector. Yet here they are performing their duties for taxing US citizens only to have to deal with this now over a week later, and what makes this so frightening is that it’s not just this one tweet, the president sent not be blamed, for it is not his fault. What will happen if they go to these lengths to protect the president and his ego? What would happen if something does occur with the economy? Something of President can be blamed for if we have a geopolitical crisis sing, a president can be playing for what lengths will the president and those who support him in his cabinet go to protect him versus disseminating the truth to the American public? Just one other quick thing on this, I really do think one thing we lose wow. All of these machinations were going on the reversal of the statement. Wilbur Ross, allegedly, you know saying he’ll fire people why this hurricane? This is not Donald Trump was right about Alabama. He wasn’t, there were Americans in the path of a natural disaster into Bend this much government time energy money to try to prove a point is remarkable and scared about the future and what it means correct, Wilbur Ross should be fired. Other members of Congress are also beginning to say exactly the same thing. So get your thoughts on the other. A new reporting we’re getting from the New York Times that the Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, the threaten to fire employees at the Nash, Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or NOAA for contradicting the president’s claim to Hurricane Dorian could hit Alabama. You said the oversight committee. Is that something you think lawmakers should actually take a look at Absolute 12th and Lex. Remember the history of Wilbur Ross put aside the fact that he was on the board of directors of the Bank of Cyprus, save big money laundering, Russian oligarch laundry machine. But my secretary is a regular lying to Congress about the census, question which proved pretty critical and ultimately was the source of deep embarrassment to the Trump administration. Because of his machination sand is untruth. Now we find that he is suppressing science and the American people count as an unquestioned short of objective information, the National Weather Service. If that’s, we got a real problem in America and and even Trump supporters who rely on the National Weather Service are going to be concerned, but it’s hurricanes or tornadoes or weather patterns or a blizzard. We rely on their Acura to have a political figure like Wilbur Ross decide. You will not talk about that. You will not contradict the present, even though he makes him a statement and your statement of Space and Science. That’S a very troubling development. I call for wible rust to resign. I think it’s a scam.. The Commerce department just issued a statement denying the New York Times report that, but but the New York Times has pretty good sources on this story as well. Let’S move on to the president’s announcement that he invited Taliban leaders to Camp David only to cancel the summit with a tweet at the last moment. What’S your reaction? Well, besides, the fact that I think Camp David is it’s a revered place, it’s not a place or Terrace like the Taliban ever, but I’m frankly, don’t think we ought to be cutting a deal like this with the Taliban. This is a cut and run deal after 18 years, the longest American war in our history. I think you have to negotiate for much better terms and we’re not getting good terms, and if this deal were to go through, it’s going to put all Afghan women at risk. It’S going to put all intellectual and academic types and Afghan and at risk it’s going to return the country to Medieval executions and tortures based on Sharia law. It’S going to completely kill the Muslim culture of Afghanistan during Taliban rule where they destroyed yo UNESCO of revered artifacts throughout the country. So this is not a good deal and it is virtually I’m glad, not the reason to gay, but the president killed the visit, but he shouldn’t have agreed to at the first place, troops, thousands more contractors and diplomats and civilians in Afghanistan and all that that’s going To be that’s going to be the subject of much tougher negotiations, but I think you can look at this deal at 4 proposed by Bassett colors of Zod and almost concluded you could get a better deal. This is a fig Leaf deal to allowed to hand over the country back to the Taliban with sore and empty promise. I won’t will do better, given their track record of you’re condemning millions of Afghans to a terrible fate, and I don’t think America should do that. As matter of National Honor, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross threatened to fire top National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration employees if the agency didn’t disavow a tweet from a regional office that contradicted President Donald Trump’s false claim that Hurricane Dorian was likely to hit Alabama, according to a report by The New York Times.
