Apparently 45 was notified of the missile alert; kept playing golf. Did he know it was false?




White House: Hawaii false alarm 'purely a state exercise'
The White House said Saturday that President Trump was briefed on the false emergency alert that went out in Hawaii warning of an incoming ballistic missile threat.

"The President has been briefed on the state of Hawaii's emergency management exercise. This was purely a state exercise," White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters said in a statement.

Individuals in Hawaii received a mobile alert earlier in the day, reading "BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL."

Hawaii officials such as Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D) and the state's Emergency Management Agency quickly tweeted that the message was a false alarm.

One thing has happened and that the MSM is no longer talking about his racist remarks.

5. If I thought the nation was under nuclear attack, ...

... I might shank my next fairway shot. Sad.

On the other hand, if someone told me it was Hawaii that was endangered, I'd have to ask if Hawaii is in East or West Kenya.

If I were Trump.

10. When an ACTUAL presidential situation arises he just keeps golfing!




Unreal. @potus instantly tweets about whatever he hears on Fox&Friends, or to proclaim he is a stable genius and the greatest, but when an ACTUAL presidential situation arises, when he could use twitter to IMMEDIATELY tell Hawaii there was no incoming nuke, he just kept golfing.

He spews such massive quantities of false bullsh&it in his tweets that it would be foolish to believe any of them.

You know how he reacts to places that did not vote for him.

8. And by 'briefed' it means a Secret Service agent walked up and whispered ...

"Sir, I'm being told I'm to tell you 'The Eagle Has ... Landed? Not sure what it means, but ...'

At which point the pResident fiendishly massaged both hands together, licking his lips while gazing downwards, his eyes darting left to right repeatedly, then he looked up after what had seemed to the agent like an eternity ... his furtive countenance widened into a twisted grin, and quietly he burped forth a single, sinister missive ...

"Exxxxxxxxcellent. You are dismissed!'

11. Trump has never taken responsibility for anything in his life.

He still has no concept of the sacred duties and responsibilities that come with the job of president. He doesn't care about the country or the people. His whole MAGA - America First schpiel is nothing more than a hollow gimmick, a cheap advertising slogan that means nothing. He doesn't even have the common humanity to reach out to the frightened people in Hawaii who thought they were about to die and be a voice for calm, and reassure everyone that they are safe.

Jeebus, even that dumb as dirt Dubbya managed to do that with a modicum of grace and dignity after 9/11.

16. Geez people. Trump is a dumb ass for sure

But there isn't anything to be done for a state fuck up. States dont have the ability to detect launches. A hacked state alert doesnt travel upward the chain to trigger anything. If there was a legit launch, aides wouldn't be telling the president that Hawaii sent out an alert, they'd be grabbing him and tossing him in the qrf helo for transport to AF1.

For a real launch, by the time states would be notified that there was an incoming attack, the president would be on Af1 and our missiles, if we are retaliating, would already be on their way.

17. Could it be he knew about it before it happened? I think he did. Consider it may be part of driving

up fear similar to what we witnessed a few years ago with Condi Rice's mushroom cloud. Does NK even have a missile capable
carrying a nuke or a nuke small enough to fit on a missile?

I'll believe what the Governor of Hawaii said it was, somebody pushed the wrong button during shift change.

Not everything is a conspiracy.
