Many across America were astonished that President Donald Trump drew on an official government weather map, apparently with a Sharpie, an expanded range of where Dorian had been projected to travel to avoid admitting he lied about the devastatingly huge hurricane moving into Alabama. Trump’s drawing, which appeared in a press event on national television, clearly was fake.
And yes, the president may have committed an illegal act.
It did, however, inspire #SharpieGate, perhaps one of the funniest Trump scandals in a long time – with many posting to social media their own doctored versions of images that would fit Trump’s altered sense of reality.
The red arrow shows the expanded area Trump doctored:
Here are some other altered photos posted to Twitter that fit Trump’s altered sense of reality:

‘Too Many Middle Fingers to Count’: Protestors Greet Trump on His Way to NH Rally With ‘One Fingered Salutes’
President Donald Trump is traveling to New Hampshire Friday evening where he will hold a short rally then head back home to the White House.
As the presidential motorcade made its way to Joint Base Andrews to board Air Force One the White House press pool released some very descriptive details.
Most press poolers try to capture the scene wherever they go, delivering descriptions including information about the weather, sometimes what the president is wearing, if there are supporters or protestors and what they’re doing.
This particular scene apparently offered a large number of details.
“The president’s motorcade moved down Pennsylvania Avenue on a route that took us past throngs of protesters who are presumably here for the events marking the anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington,” the pool report reads.
“Many of the protesters along the avenue greeted the motorcade with raised middle fingers,” it notes.
“There were far too many middle fingers to count. Several of the peope in the crowd opted to raise both of their middle fingers in a double barreled one finger salute,” it continues. “Some of the protesters waved signs. A few that were clearly legible read ‘BLM’ and ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER.’ One man’s sign that was visible from the motorcade said, ‘WHITE SILENCE = BLACK DEATH.'”
Just filed a rather unusual pool report – "One fingered salutes along Pennsylvania Avenue." pic.twitter.com/PvwcjoFGsO

Eric Trump Mocked for Tweeting Image of Ghislaine Maxwell With Clintons — When His Dad Hung Out With Her Repeatedly
On Thursday, following the arrest of former Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell, Eric Trump posted a picture of Maxwell at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding.
Birds of a feather… pic.twitter.com/4rBugxJGxc
— Eric Trump (@EricTrump) July 2, 2020
He was immediately deluged in scorn from social media, as commenters reminded him of all the pictures of Maxwell with his own father.
Does the president's son not know that there are photos of Donald Trump with Maxwell?
