A former Defense Department official under former President Barack Obama reacted to the false alarm of a ballistic missile headed towards Hawaii on Saturday by saying “thank God the President was playing golf.”

Patrick Granfield, a former strategic communications director at the Pentagon, posted the tweet after Hawaii officials declared the emergency alert was a false alarm.

Critics went after Trump for being at his Trump International Golf Course in Florida when the false alarm alert was sent out on Saturday.

The false alarm came amid heightened tensions between the U.S. and North Korea over Pyongyang's nuclear program and continued testing of ballistic missiles.

Trump wouldn't really care much they didn't vote for him - see California wildfires

2. No shyt, he could have pushed the button!

 

Like I said many times, keep the SOB on the golf course as much as possible. Then he has less time to screw things up.
