    even the weather channel is effected by the cancer that is the MSM

    • +Smashed Avenger maybe you should go back and re read it.. nice and slow.. and look for ANYWHERE that I said I was supporting him.. comprehension takes a little more than putting words together..

    • Smashed Avenger

      g  ” for the first time in the history of this country, we have a president who’s standing up and calling out the destructive lies of news agencies.. then a video airs that completely shows you how blatant their lies are” There you go, TrumpTard. You Trumptards will just lie for the fun of it right? Evidently you know no American history. Trump is a egotistical Bloat-bag little TrumpTard. Because that’s what you are. An ignorant boot licking slobbering dupe of the Gilded Pig. Oh by the way Mexico isn’t paying for the wall despite what the lying Gilded pig said. How about that, liar?

    • Smashed Avenger  ok.. so.. if you can’t see the problem we have with the media, you’re truly blind man.. do you remember when they faked terrorist attacks in the early 2000s? do you not see how they twist stories and skew statistics?

      beyond that, not once did I recognize any other aspect of his presidency, personal character, or any admiration for him whatsoever..

      what you took from that was completely fabricated in your head . .

      however, nothing I can say will make a difference to a person who uses 4 consecutive derogatory names to attempt to belittle someone over the internet simply based on one comment..

      You’re pathetic man..

    • Smashed Avenger

      g  Sure thing Hypocrite. You’re a real admirable little guy. Go peddle your lies some where else. You and that reporter are exactly alike. Just bad actors, that’s all.

  2. valkyrievic VIC17

    Dam, they lied and again…

  3. MB McClure

    Truth is a rare thing these days!

  4. mnicrashSoren

    Has no one figured out that the “news” is for entertainment only? The entire news media is a poorly scripted reality show…. i mean we all know trump is responsible for the weather now too according to the unbiased media….. LMAO

    • Justin Bruen

      Trump gets credit for making category 5 hurricane, gets no credit for tuning it back down to a 2 before landfall

    • whatever3210

      Right, and the economy is all Obama’s. lol. The fake stream media has jumped the shark way too many times to ever be credible again. Looks like the light of truth is shining brightly in the darkest places these days.

    • whatever3210

      I hear that a lot. I personally believe it’s about deception and brainwashing above anything else.

    • whatever3210

      Right!? lol. Everyone knows now that we can’t take anything the fake stream media says at face value. All credibility has been lost.

    • The morons on the view tried to blame hurricane on Trump.. LMAO

    Wet grass versus concrete!?! Stupid excuse. If they needed a believable excuse, they should’ve said he was drunk. He’s a celebrity. People would believe drunk. . .

    • Richard Hunn

      Nicoya Massive keg spill?

    • Anthony Vitanza

      I agree with you on that one

    • Tim England

      Genius! Why aren’t you rich?

    • piggyroo100

      Good one

    • Richard Hunn

      Tim England I often look for listings for “spin doctor”, in the classifieds, of the newspapers that I find, before stuffing them into my shirt and shoes, to keep warm. Today, as I sneered as various suited vermin walked past me, that looked way too much like network executives, I wondered what they have that I have not. H-m-m-m-m. Oops! MY METH LAB HAS JUST EXPLODED! The carboard box in which I live is now on fire-

  6. Janet Airlines

    The weather channel will never live this down. FAKE NEWS

  7. R Doobies

    this is what you call “sticking with the lie”

  8. Debbie Cline

    Hey Mike, hope you recover from the wind burn!😂😂😂

  9. John Sticher

    wet grass huh? this guy got caught. period.

  10. ryan poston

    Lmao….wet grass compared to concrete….dude was way over dramatic…wet grass had literally nothing to do w how he was acting…come on!!!

    • David Isaacson

      Maybe they meant he was smoking it, lol

    • ryan poston – Not to mention that he’s not leaning into the wind as one would. Instead he is leaning the wrong way. 😐😑🙄

  11. SirSlayer69

    Not to mention….but in longer clips you can see one of the guys walking on grass just fine…..this was such a fail.

    • Zhonguoria

      Assuming the lie was true – grass is slippier than concrete, weatherman was standing ONE FOOT away from concrete driveway. Why didn’t he just move ONE FOOT? 😄

    • Professional American

      Zhonguoria because that would make too much sense.

  12. juliadennehy

    Ever since the Weather Channel began airing tacky shows , instead of just reporting the weather, they lost credibility with me. This incident tips the scale completely.
    TWC? YOU ARE A JOKE.

  13. 08turboSS

    And there is no excuse of Mike being on grass, wind is wind and those two kids were walking upwright with ease. Gusts may have been upto 55 mph but no more. I just knew the fake news reporting would spread to other outlets.

    • Jordantheweatherguy

      it was 75 mph steady with higher wind gusts, that is a cat. 1. that is what it was on the tv. when it happened

  14. mnicrashSoren

    Trump did a great job getting the hurricane down to a 1…. if he was responsible for the hurricane would he not also be responsible for making it less severe or did Obama do that?

    • HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA thats funny right there ! ! !

    • njjeepgirlnj

      Neither of them have control over that. They are peons compared to the ones actually calling the shots.

    • maddooggg

      the libtarded and proud left blames Trump for Hurricanes.. and deaths. their bitchin about Puerto Rico is proof.. you can find them at CNN and MSNBC and Occupy Democrats to name a few

    • Gary York

      mnicrashSoren that’s the arrogance of the left, thinking man can control the weather.

    • Joe Banks

      Yeah, Trump may have worked the hurricane down to a ‘1’, but why the hell did he have to dump so much water all over the place????!!!

  15. Sue Powell

    LOL nice try. They really think we are stupid

    • GOLOCO FAN!

      I think they know how stupid they have been and its a sad attempt to save face. I notice yesterday with Hurricane Michael they didn’t do this nonsense.

    • warren WTF

      +GOLOCO FAN! I seen some from Michael. To allow this is weak from a dumbed down society. Weather can be modifided if not controlled.

    • GOLOCO FAN!

      Did they release any plywood or sheet metal and yell WATCH OUT WATCH OUT?

    • warren WTF

      +GOLOCO FAN! Research Weather Modification Inc. Since 1961 “When others see clouds we see potential”.
      1940s is when the first weather modification was documented that I have found.

  16. bronco devil

    Omg. Even the weather channel is fake news!

  17. Information Action Ratio

    If this does not wake people up to the lies of the mainstream media, I don’t know what will! I honestly don’t know what will!

    • +Dave Bailey “your and idiot” ..?

    • Tristan Causer

      I am a Trump supporter who likes Fox News. I think that mainstream media is fake to but I fail to understand why everyone is pissed at Mike Seidel and Jim Cantore when they are just weather reporters. BTW, wet grass is slippery, wind is more likely to knock yoou over on a slippery surface. It’s not that damn complicated to understand the definition of the word “slippery”

    • Mad Tatter

      +Tristan Causer Yeah but ummmm why is he even leaning the wrong way? The garbage that the mainstream media feeds their idiotic sheep is a sad as it is hilarious 🙂

    • SelfPromoPolice

      Malign Feminine I really can tell people are starting to. Just be patient years before now almost no one would care.

  18. Drew Diaz

    Media manipulation, yet again …

    • NOTHING BUT ! ! They “Tart” up Abrams and Jen and try to get you to watch because of THOSE TWO ? ?
      Please…….

  19. And they wonder why they are called the fake media. What a joke they are. You simply can’t trust a word they say.
