Hollywood Goes Ballistic on Trump Over Hawaii Missile Scare: ‘Load of Bullshit’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap

After a false ballistic missile threat alert was sent to cell phones in Hawaii on Saturday morning that panicked the islands and beyond, Hollywood placed the blame on one person: President Donald Trump.

The short-lived Hawaii missile crisis was triggered after someone “pushed the wrong button” during an employee shift change, according to Gov. David Ige. Those not fond of Trump or his policies already had their dander raised from Thursday, when The New York Times published a damning report saying that the president had described certain nations as “shithole countries.” And the sustained tension had people directing anger squarely at the POTUS once again.

“Great to know the button saying there is a nuclear war is right next to the one saying this is a test,” Judd Apatow tweeted. “This is a load of bullshit. This is not what happened. Keep digging. This isn’t about a f–king shift change.”

It didn’t help matters that CNN reported that Trump was on the golf course when the false alarm was sent.

“Anyone else wondering why the hell @realDonaldTrump didn’t tweet about this morning’s false alarm in Hawaii?” asked Montel Williams. “To [sic] busy with golfing or doesn’t care since it’s not about him?”

“I woke up this morning in Hawaii with ten minutes to live. It was a false alarm, but a real psychic warning,” tweeted Jim Carrey. “If we allow this one-man Gomorrah and his corrupt Republican congress to continue alienating the world we are headed for suffering beyond all imagination.”

Meanwhile, Pedro Pascal posted a meme that read: “Dear rest of the world, we’re sorry for our shithead president, Sincerely, the United States of America.”

Hawaii residents got the jolt of a lifetime Saturday morning, as they woke up to frightening mobile push alerts warning island residents of an incoming missile and instructing people to seek shelter.

Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency then quickly announced that the message was a mistake.

“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,” tweeted Jamie Lee Curtis.  “Shame on your hate filled self. YOU DID THIS!”
