Actress and yogurt salesman extraordinaire Jamie Lee Curtis knows without a doubt exactly whom to blame for a false alarm that told Hawaiians an incoming ballistic missile was discovered.
It was all President Donald Trump’s fault. Duh.
Now, never mind that the president was in Florida at the time. On the links, most likely having a great round. And forget that Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency (EMA), run by the Hawaiian state government, apologized for setting off the false alarm when someone pushed the wrong button.
In a Saturday afternoon post on Twitter, Curtis criticized Trump, writing “YOU DID THIS!”
“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!” the actress tweeted.

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.”
“The President has been briefed on the state of Hawaii’s emergency management exercise. This was purely a state exercise,” White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters said in a statement.
Curtis, who says on her Twitter bio, “Living my life, one day, one tweet at a time,” didn’t explain exactly how it was Trump’s fault. And while she’s followed by nearly 375,000 people, some took the B-actress to task for her tweet.
Get your facts straight before you tweet something so ridiculous! This was a State issue!! Go eat some Activia and sthu!!!

If you’re upset with the President that’s fine, as many are…and you have legitimate reasons to be. BUT spreading fear as a celebrity who people look up to when NO ONE has the facts of what actually happened yet is completely wrong. https://t.co/MJa30iLT1i

To think at one time I actually respected you….. only now to learn you are just another emotional, irrational, liberal who lives in a make believe world. You exhibit absolutely no common sense….. stay in your make believe, politically correct world of delusion it fits you…
