As I have been saying, the excuses being offered by democrats for their incompetence require not only blind loyalty but an IQ under 100 to be believed. The governor of Hawaii did not know his twitter account password so the people of Hawaii believed they were going to be nuked for 28 minutes rather than 2. There is much about this Hawaii story that doesn’t add up but the point here is the shear idiocy of this excuse. The desperation and fecklessness of these elected democrats has reached a point of not only absurdity but endangerment as they exhibit almost daily their complete lack of concern for the people of this country, even their own supporters (who are clearly morons themselves so, maybe the hope by elected democrats is their supporters are so stupid they won’t even notice).
Couldn’t remember his password? C’mon, really? And the method of communication to the residents of an entire state is a twitter account? That is even more ridiculous than the password story. I mean, how were the people first informed they being bombed?
Hawaii Governor Couldn’t Remember Twitter Password As Fake Missile Alert Wreaked Havoc On State
Hawaii Democratic Gov. David Ige said Monday that one of the reasons it took so long to inform the public that a ballistic missile alert in the state was in fact a false alarm was because he couldn’t remember his Twitter password.
Ige was notified two minutes after the alert was sent to mobile devices across the state, according to the Honolulu Star Advertiser, but was unable to send out communications stating the illegitimacy of the original alert for 17 minutes.
“I have to confess that I don’t know my Twitter account log-ons and the passwords, so certainly that’s one of the changes that I’ve made,” Ige said during his State of the State address. “I’ve been putting that on my phone so that we can access the social media directly.”
While many public officials have their staff members manage and operate their social media accounts, it wasn’t clear if that was the case in this situation, or why such employees of the governor’s office weren’t readily available to access Ige’s Twitter profile.
It ultimately took 38 minutes for authorities to officially announce that the urgent notification was a mistake caused by human error, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“The false emergency alert sent yesterday in Hawaii was absolutely unacceptable,” Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai said in a statement. “It caused a wave of panic across the state—worsened by the 38-minute delay before a correction alert was issued. Moreover, false alerts undermine public confidence in the alerting system and thus reduce their effectiveness during real emergencies. The FCC’s investigation into this incident is well underway.”
FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly also said Monday that he and others in the agency are working with officials in the state to ensure that such a substantial delay doesn’t occur, or the false alarm doesn’t occur in the first place.
