The people of Hawaii today were awakened to a terrifying sound; that of their Emergency Alert System panicking locals suggesting that incoming ballistic missiles were imminent.

Hawaii’s Governor immediately went onto nationwide mainstream media, via CNN of course; to suggest that the entire incident was a mistake.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">JUST IN: Hawaii Governor David Ige tells CNN that someone &quot;pushed the wrong button&quot; during an employee shift change, sending out the false alert about an incoming ballistic missile <a href="https://t.co/FD1vl6fCzh">https://t.co/FD1vl6fCzh</a> <a href="https://t.co/2zhXLApLcr">pic.twitter.com/2zhXLApLcr</a></p>&mdash; CNN (@CNN) <a href="https://twitter.com/CNN/status/952265306336124928?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">January 13, 2018</a></blockquote>

Governor David Ige said that someone <i>"pushed the wrong button"</i> during an employee shift change, sending out the false alert about an incoming ballistic missile.

Virtue signaling leftists found some way to blame the President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump, however, suggesting that he somehow had something to do with Hawaii’s liberal incompetence.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">This happened because of idiot liberals in Hawaii.</p>&mdash; Odin (@BEP0007) <a href="https://twitter.com/BEP0007/status/952272581972738048?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">January 13, 2018</a></blockquote>

Laughable, I know; but so is their entire lives, as Democrats.

Locals say that Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency soon announced that the message was a mistake.

Assuming someone will be fired over this mistake, it undoubtedly caused massive panic across the state of Hawaii; which would, in a sane world, result in major punishment for those responsible.

This is liberal Hawaii though, so they'll probably hug and sing Kumbaya.

The Emergency Alert said, <b>“BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII!”</b> Followed by, <b>“SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”</b>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">HAWAII - THIS IS A FALSE ALARM. THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE TO HAWAII. I HAVE CONFIRMED WITH OFFICIALS THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE. <a href="https://t.co/DxfTXIDOQs">pic.twitter.com/DxfTXIDOQs</a></p>&mdash; Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard) <a href="https://twitter.com/TulsiGabbard/status/952243723525677056?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">January 13, 2018</a></blockquote>

Not exactly the picture you want to see when in beautiful Hawaii; for those on vacation. Honestly, such a mistake isn't pleasant for those who are full-time residents either.

While city and military officials took to social media within 15 minutes to quell fears and say the message was sent in error, it took state emergency management, which sent out the message in the first place; nearly 40 minutes to send out a "false alarm" alert to cell phones using the same mechanism that distributed the emergency warning in the first place.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The ballistic missile warning that was issued is a FALSE alarm. Repeat FALSE alarm.</p>&mdash; Mayor Kirk Caldwell (@MayorKirkHNL) <a href="https://twitter.com/MayorKirkHNL/status/952245310293655553?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">January 13, 2018</a></blockquote>

"It's totally unacceptable," said U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii. "There was anxiety across the state and it was terrifying. There was a lot of unnecessary pain and anxiety. It's important to have accountability at the state level and the emergency management level in terms of what exactly what went wrong."

Several<a href="https://www.thewrap.com/panic-hawaii-residents-wake-ballistic-missile-emergency-alert-sent-mistake/"> reports </a>appeared telling residents that it wasn't a concern and to calm down, but that certainly doesn't make up for the mistake.

At least everyone is safe.

Most likely a disgruntled anti-Trumper pushed the button to embarrass and harrass President Trump.

A bunch of government employees went out to the Choom Bus with the Choom gang while they were punched in for work and got high. It's a good thing according to former POTUS Obama. When they came back in to punch out from work they either accidentally hit the wrong button or thought it was funny to do so. Either way another Liberal- My Bad.
