As Twitchy told you earlier today, people on Hawaii were sent into a panic after receiving a ballistic missile threat alert. Fortunately the warning was a BIG mistake:

President Trump was reportedly on the golf course at the time, but regardless, a predictable reaction was about to occur no matter what:
They've already found a way to blame Trump for someone in Hawaii hitting the wrong button and sending the island into a panic. https://t.co/8pmDw1vReb

Right on cue, Hawaii Dem Rep. Tulsi Gabbard took rhetorical aim at the president, accusing him of inaction on North Korea:

When Trump talked tough on NK and Dems lost their minds, so this change in direction is a little confusing:

Earlier this week Gabbard, who today said Trump needs to be tougher with North Korea, was critical of Trump’s tough tone about NK:
Threatening Kim Jong-un with preemptive military action undermines the diplomatic discussions underway between North and South Korea. It's time for us to drop the regime change playbook and join our allies and adversaries at the negotiating table.

She can’t seem to make up her mind!
Where were these people when Obama, GWB, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, all the way down the line, were all pussy footing around the NORK issue?
Why is it suddenly all on Trump after all these other presidents failed to address it properly? https://t.co/uSoSLvmNuM

Hawaii's Democrat governor: Someone pushed the wrong button.
And the MSM was worried about Trump's big button…

Rest assured, whatever Trump does, Dems will insist he should have done the opposite.
