Considering this ’employee’ in Hawaii allegedly had to hit a button twice to send the alert, we’re not entirely surprised that it wasn’t an accident.
BREAKING: US regulators: Hawaii employee who sent false ballistic missile alert thought actual attack was imminent.

Sounds legit, Hawaii.
But wait, that’s the whole story? Umm … why did this employee think an attack was imminent? Does this employee not need a directive from a higher up before pushing a button TWICE to send such an alert?
Or maybe he or she was eating Tide Pods and passed out on the button, twice, and they’re just too embarrassed to admit it.

"This was a terrible and preventable accident."
"Nah, bro. I did it on purpose."

Was he playing missile command?

Now the narrative shifts. It wasn't an "accident." So, clearly there'll be no "retraining" because, apparently the moron was following protocol. All this after we were told he was refusing to cooperate with state and federal investigators. Oh sure. This all makes perfect sense.

This does NOT make perfect sense, EL OH EL.
But then again, in 2018 what does?
