Trump's top spokeswoman mocks CNN's inaccurate hurricane map -- and it immediately backfires

President Donald Trump's press secretary tried to clean up his ongoing debacle over placing Alabama in Hurricane Dorian's path, but things didn't go well for her.

The president warned Sunday that Alabama was in danger from the powerful hurricane, although forecasts by that point showed Dorian headed north from Florida up the eastern seaboard, rather than toward the Gulf Coast.

Trump continues to insist he was correct, and even altered a weather map with a marker in an attempt to prove he was right -- and his White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham tried to help by pointing out CNN had misidentified Alabama as Mississippi in a map graphic.

CNN quickly responded, and Grisham was met with a fusillade of mockery and criticism.
