I can understand this as Hawaii is run by Dem's. 


Residents of Hawaii were thrown into a panic Saturday morning after an emergency alert was sent warning of a ballistic missile threat. But officials minutes later tweeted that it was a false alarm.

"NO missile threat to Hawaii," the state's Emergency Management Agency tweeted at 8:20 local time (1:20 ET).

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, tweeted: "This is a false alarm. There is no incoming missile to Hawaii."

Not missing a beat, and completely ignoring Barak Obama's & Bill Clinton's role in arming the NORKS, Tulsi Gabbard accuses the Trump administration for the lack of seriousness...?   She must have been sleeping over the last year.

“Oh, absolutely,” Gabbard agreed. “It points to the failure of our leaders that we are sitting here in a state where this threat, this text message, is a very real thing. Today’s one was a mistake.”

Donald Trump is taking too long,” she continued. “He’s not taking this threat seriously. There’s no time to waste. The people of Hawaii and this country should not have to go through something like this before leaders in this country start to take this threat seriously.”

Damned if you do, damned if you don't bomb the NORKS, is that it Tulsi Gabbard?  Oh, but it's an opportunity to bash President Trump (libs hate that), rather than insert yourself into the process and be HELPFUL for a change.  For someone with a military background, she, of all people, ought to know better.

I am not a journalist, but the obvious question to Gabbard would be, "What should he do?". Watching her twist in the wind from that would totally expose her.

Obviously, that wasn't the reason for the interview, it doesn't fit the narrative.

Tulsi Gabbard needs to be asked what would it take convince her President Trump (libs hate that) is taking the threat SERIOUSLY... leave it open ended, given her military background, her answer could be quite interesting.

Another question she needed to be asked, "What have you DONE while you've been in office, you've had X years under Barak Obama while North Korea was arming up, your leadership and even comments / suggestions during that time are curiously *absent*, how do you account for your lack of seriousness?   Are you representing Hawaii or the Democratic Party while in DC?

Another lingering question, did Tulsi Gabbard have *anything* to do with establishing the early warning system, or was she just quietly sitting on the Democratic sidelines while the Governor and local leaders did all the heavy lifting?   Regardless of her answer, the followup question of "You did what?" or "Why didn't you?"   The reporter let her off-the-hook.

I'd really like a very direct question answered by Tulsi Gabbard, "Do you advocate bombing North Korea to end the nuclear threat?"   She might show a hawkish side that'd isolate her from the Democrat Party!

If the MSM starting fulfilling their responsibility, politicians like Tulsi Gabbard, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren would be able to pussy foot around with these blame-game answers.   What infuriates ALL of us, the Democrats create these international disasters by appeasement, if not by down-right ennoblement, and when a Republican takes office, it's ALL the Pubs fault.
