Donald Trump’s raging lies about the path of Hurricane Dorian and its path, which culminated this week in an Oval Office update in which he displayed a chart doctored with a Sharpie, entered a fifth day of obsessive, insane litigation.

The Washington Post reports that yes, it was Trump himself, who doctored the map: ‘It was Trump who used a black Sharpie to mark up an official National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration map, which he displayed during an Oval Office briefing on Wednesday, according to a White House official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. “No one else writes like that on a map with a black Sharpie,” the official said of the map, which added Alabama into the hurricane’s potential pathway inside the loop of the marker.’
