Fox guest blames Dems for botched test of Hawaii missile alert system: It’s a ‘butt dial’ from a ‘blue state’

Published

Fox News pundit Dan Bongino, a former NYPD officer, suggested on Sunday that Democrats were to blame for a failed test of Hawaii’s emergency missile notification system.

Over the weekend, Hawaii Emergency Management Agency sent out an alert advising residents to “take shelter.” After 911 operators were overwhelmed with calls, the Hawaii government corrected the state, admitting that it had been a false alarm.

On Sunday, the hosts of Fox & Friends accused Democrats of blaming President Donald Trump for the mistake because two actors, Jim Carrey and Jamie Lee Curtis, noted on Twitter that Trump’s leadership had made the world more dangerous.

“This is an amazing story,” Bongino opined. “You have one of the bluest states in the country, Hawaii, run exclusively by Democrats, right? And a largely state-run system, this warning system, and basically you have the equivalent of a butt dial that could have nearly set off a nuclear event.”

“This is Trump’s fault?” he continued. “Number one for Hollywood, either they are really this stupid and they believe that Trump had something to do with this. Or secondly, they’re lying because they have TDS — Trump derangement syndrome — to manipulate people and just destroying their business model even further.”

Here are 3 winners and 3 losers from the 2020 Democratic presidential primary debate

Published

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined the other leading Democratic presidential primary candidates Wednesday night in the fieriest evening of the race so far.

His presence on the stage drew fire from the other candidates, but it also seemed to change the overall tone of the debate, with more attacks, counter-attacks, and passion than was generally seen earlier in the campaign.

Here’s a (necessarily subjective!) list of the winners and losers from the fray:

Winners

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) — Warren hit her stride right as the debate started by attacking Bloomberg for his record on the mistreatment of women, racist policies, and his tax returns. She repeatedly came back to skewer the former mayor, making herself the biggest and most notable presence in the debate. But importantly, she also continuously brought the discussion back to the issues she cares about — like expanding health care, environmental justice,  and consumer protection — while getting in digs at the other candidates on the stage.

Michael Bloomberg ‘lost everything’ in Las Vegas: MSNBC analyst

Published

on

Senior editor for "The Root," Jason Johnson, concluded that the biggest loser of the Democratic debate in Las Vegas Wednesday was Michael Bloomberg, but not merely because of his debate performance.

"The big new name was going to be Michael Bloomberg," he said. "This was probably the most expensive night in Vegas I've ever seen. He lost everything. This guy has spent $320 million. He had the opportunity to stand on stage, and appear to be an equal, and he looked bored. He looked disenchanted. He stumbled over obvious questions that anybody would have anticipated about sexual harassment and stop and frisk. I thought it was a bad night for him."
