Here’s a case of less-than-great optics.
CNN weatherman Chad Myers has been a mainstay on the network over the past several weeks, doing yeoman’s work reporting on Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Tuesday, during an appearance on Inside Politics, the forecaster discussed the damage caused by the latter storm. And during his segment, he fondly recalled a personal memory which — juxtaposed against the backdrop of a deadly hurricane — might have best been left unsaid at that moment.
“Let me show you the power that this storm had in the British Virgin Islands,” Myers said. “I stayed here for my 40th birthday. The Bitter End Yacht Club. With your little condo duplex, you get to use a boat any time you want. And it was an amazing 40th birthday.”
