Jamie Lee Curtis blames Trump for false missile alarm in Hawaii despite state’s admission to the contrary

On Saturday, actress Jamie Lee Curtis went ballistic, blaming President Donald Trump for a false ballistic missile warning sent to residents of Hawaii despite the state’s own admission that the error was the fault of an employee with Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency.

“This Hawaii missile 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!” she screamed on Twitter.

According to the Daily Wire:

Hawaii went into a panic after an emergency notification went out early Saturday afternoon alerting residents of an incoming ballistic missile. The initial alert warned residents to “seek shelter,” while a second alert sent 38 minutes later said that “there is no missile threat or danger to the State of Hawaii.”

Democratic Gov. David Ige blamed the error on an unnamed state employee. It was a mistake made during a standard procedure at the change over of a shift, and an employee pushed the wrong button,” Ige said.

Trump was on the golf course at the time the false alert was sent. He was briefed on the situation, according to the White House, which called the matter a “state exercise.”

As it turns out, the Daily Wire added, Trump was on a golf course in Florida.  But Curtis would apparently have us think the president himself pressed the button which sent the message…

Meanwhile, Fox News reported, the employee who actually pushed the button is being temporarily reassigned to another position within the state agency.

“The employee who issued the alert has been temporarily reassigned pending the outcome of our internal investigation. He will still report to work within our Emergency Operations Center, but in a different capacity that does not provide access to the warning system,” a spokesman with the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency said.

And, Hawaii News Now said, the agency is receiving death threats.

A spokesman for the agency said:

“We understand that members of our community are angry about Saturday’s false alarm, and we are looking at these messages as individuals blowing off steam. While we take any threat against our personnel seriously, we are doing our best not to escalate the situation.”

The report added:

For 38 minutes, families were panic-stricken until the state finally sent out a second emergency alert to cell phones confirming there was no danger to the state.

“There was no automated way to send a false alarm notification,” said Gov. David Ige. “We have to initiate a manual process, which is why it took a while to notify everyone.”

In a letter Sunday, Gov. Ige apologized again and reassured the people of Hawaii that “steps have already been taken by the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency to ensure that a situation of this type never happens again.”

Ige — a Democrat — also demanded peace and a de-escalation of tensions with North Korea, Hawaii News Now said.

 

Curtis got hammered for her tweet:
