On Saturday, an inbound ballistic (nuclear) missile alert hit Hawaii, and text messages were sent to a horrified populous that it was “not a drill.”
Forty minutes later, the alarm ended, and everything was okay.
Since that time, people in Hawaii have shared stories of having phone calls with loved ones, praying together in retail stores, and even placing them in storm drains in a desperate attempt to ensure their safety…
The specifics are still hazy on what took place. But Hawaii Gov. David Ige (D) said someone “pushed the wrong button.” He tweeted…
STATEMENT: While I am thankful this morning’s alert was a false alarm, the public must have confidence in our emergency alert system. I am working to get to the bottom of this so we can prevent an error of this type in the future.

President Donald Trump was briefed on the situation and has yet to comment.
But that didn’t stop Golden Globe-winning actress Jamie Lee Curtis from lashing out at the president.
While the majority of America attributes the colossal mistake to human error, Curtis blamed the president.
Yep…and it’s a doozy.
This Hawaii missle scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that mothers & fathers & children felt is on YOU. It is on YOUR ARROGANCE. HUBRIS. NARCISSISM. RAGE. EGO. IMMATURITY and your UNSTABLE IDIOCY. Shame on your hate filled self. YOU DID THIS!

The unhinged reaction from Curtis created quite the response:
You get that the group that pushes this is run by the state of Hawaii? Right?

Sorry JLC, but you have just presented yourself as another classic example of Celebrities having no clue and spouting off like they are all knowing guardians of our well being.

Apparently not. But would it matter? There is no known cure for “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”
