Fox News political analyst Brit Hume took issue with a New York Times editorial making the case that the missile false alarm in Hawaii was somehow related to the policies of the Trump administration.
It would be hard to imagine a sillier editorial than this: The Hawaii screw-up is purely a state matter & irrelevant to U.S. nuclear policy.

Newsflash guys: The false alarm happened because of incompetence from the state of Hawaii. It had nothing to do with the Trump administration.

Even the headline betrays the tenuousness of the connection https://t.co/UQAVFykD79

The connection they are attempting to convey makes zero sense whatsoever, but hey, let’s keep trying to throw stuff at the wall to see if people will believe that it’s all Trump’s fault.
Just when you think the government of Hawaii made the biggest publishing mistake of the decade, you’re reminded that the New York Times does that every single day.
