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.”

Is a strange Twitter glitch censoring the left?
The Working Families Party, a New York-based progressive political party, has a reputation befitting its name as a left-populist political organization. So when the organization endorsed the center-left Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren — who was once a hardcore Republican and has emphasized her capitalist credentials — over the explicitly democratic socialist candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sanders (I-Vt.) supporters were understandably disappointed. After all, the party overwhelmingly endorsed Sanders in the previous presidential election. What had changed?
NYC mayor Bill de Blasio ending his Democratic presidential campaign
New York City mayor Bill de Blasio has ended his Democratic presidential campaign.
De Blasio made the announcement Friday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," where he explained his decision.
"I feel like I've contributed all I can to this primary election," he said, "and it's clearly not my time."
The mayor said he was optimistic about the Democratic Party's chances in the 2020 election, no matter who was nominated to face President Donald Trump.
MSNBC’s Morning Joe darkly warns why Rudy Giuliani’s ‘lies and gibberish’ are no laughing matter
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough laughed uproariously at Rudy Giuliani's careening denials and admissions to possible crimes involving Ukraine, and then darkly noted that his bizarre "gibberish" was straight out of the authoritarian handbook.
"Morning Joe" panelists cracked up at President Donald Trump's attorney angrily denying that he sought election help from Ukraine's government, only to even more angrily justify his reasons for doing what he had just denied.
"When it is going south you put gibberish on the air not to confuse people," said panelist Donny Deutsch, "all of a sudden it's just this noise that's not as distracting that makes you lightheaded."
