Hawaiian citizens had themselves a scare on Saturday.
BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
That’s pretty fucking scary. 38 Minutes of absolute fear until it was announced that…it was all just a mistake. Here’s the thing though, it’s completely believable, isn’t it? Don’t we like, fully expect it now? We wouldn’t be totally shocked, would we?
This is the world we perceive we live in now. Even if our perceptions might be jacked up from daily life under a rogue regime gone crazy. We never had a “President” fully engage in open hostility with another world leader regarding war and nuclear weapons like this. We expect there’s a good chance something is going to happen. We haven’t been given any reason to believe otherwise.
Meanwhile, here’s Donnie’s schedule for Saturday:
The usual nothing. Then we heard:
So…he was golfing during the entire affair.
Look, it’s not Trump’s fault that some fool idgit hit the “wrong button” (seriously, shouldn’t the wrong button be a giant red motherfucker underneath a glass box that says “DOOMSDAY BUTTON!!!”?). What is Trump’s fault, is the atmosphere he has single-handedly created. What is Trump’s fault, is that we aren’t aware he did anything other than golf. We aren’t aware he was/is concerned at all because we haven’t heard shit from him.
…and that is a problem my friends.
that’s a very big problem.
If you’re like me, you know for a fact Trump is going to tweet something on Sunday. I bet you, it is this verbatim:
first tweet: FAKE NEWS MEDIA would have you believe I didn’t care about the missile threat in Hawaii. NOT TRUE! I was fully engaged and closely monitoring the situation!
second tweet: The missile scare in Hawaii PROVES, all the more, that we need to upgrade our defensive systems and Military hardware! DEMS say no to military! Won’t make a deal. SAD.
If you’re like me, you have a feeling we’re going to hear more about what Trump actually did or didn’t do, and for sure it’s not going to be good. Right? Don’t you think we get a leak that he was either: yelling for a nuclear war on the golf course or he just shut down and couldn’t think that anything needed to be done, and if something did need to be done, then maybe “The Generals” should decide what that is.
We’ll hear something for sure Sunday or Monday.
