Just the usual meteorological lingo or an epic subtweet?
The bulletin issued on Monday called the storm “small” and “well-defined,” and added that Don was “not particularly well organized.” This led to a quick response, especially once the description was tweeted by AP Politics:
Storm names are on a six-year rotation, and the name Don was added to the list in 2006, AP reported.
Max Mayfield, the former National Hurricane Center director who chaired the committee that chose the name, told the news agency that the appearance of Tropical Storm Don had nothing to do with the president.
“I hadn’t even thought about that,” Mayfield was quoted as saying. “I guarantee you that it has no connection to Donald Trump.”
