As Hurricane Dorian was approaching the United States, Donald Trump made a statement that indicated that Alabama might be at risk from the storm.

The National Weather Service in Birmingham, Alabama then issued a statement indicating that Alabama was not at risk because that's what their forecast models showed them and presumably they didn't want Alabama residents unnecessarily worried.

Trump then defended his statement by saying that at the time he made the statement Alabama was at risk.

Now a NOAA (of which the National Weather Service is a part) spokesperson has issued a statement critical of the NWS Birmingham office for issuing the "Alabama is not at risk" statement.

What should have happened after Trump's initial statement and when do you think this controversy should end or should have ended?
The NWS Birmingham office should not have issued the statement and let Alabama residents believe they were at risk.
Vote A
The NWS Birmingham office was right to issue the statement clarifying the situation and it should have ended after that.
Vote B
The NWS office was right to issue the statement and Trump was right to try to prove he was correct and it should have ended after that.
Vote C
The NWS office statement, Trump's response trying to show he was correct, and the NOAA statement were all right and now it should end.
Vote D
This is a major issue and we should keep arguing about it until at least the next election and probably longer.
