Why did it take 38 minutes to send out the false alarm notification? The people at that department should have known the original alarm went out, and also known it was by human error within a couple of minutes. They certainly should have been checking on it immediately.

It's probably a good thing Trump stayed on the golf course during this. If he had been off, there's no telling if he would have jumped the gun and launched a retaliatory strike on North Korea.

Yes, that was mentioned in the article. Definitely a danger of him flying off the handle and doing something rash. He doesn't ever consider consequences.

It also highlighted that the White House still hasn't put new procedures in place dealing with a nuclear missile attack on the States from North Korea.

Trump lives in a fantasy world, with wishful thinking that nothing bad or dangerous will happen. White House staff isn't any better, coasting along and hoping that others will take care of problems.

It seems that some of the staff is hanging on in some hope of reducing the harm that Trump does.    No administration has leaked the way this one has.  Like is sieve!  And it continues, no matter how many people Trump fires.   Administration losses are also a record high.

But generally, you are right.  Most staffers and Republican Congresspersons are defending Trump, either out of fear or for selfish political reasons.   What is the cost of a soul now a days?

Your question was rhetorical, but I'll give an answer - to Trump and the GOP a soul is nothing. To the GOP, the party is all, winning elections is the goal. To Trump the Donald is all, nothing else matters.

Back to the Hawaii fiasco, here's an article explaining what happened, with a screenshot of the dropdown menu:

The dropdown menu image tells me that management messed up. Management should have required the software programmers to make the choices clear, more separated, and also have a second click required (Are you sure you want to do this?) for the alarms. This is an example of horrible programming, horrible management.

I mostly agree, but if so, I think that many Republicans are miscalculating badly.   Not only because Trump will turn on them in a flash if it suits his fancy, but because defending Trump and his wanted policies too much may give them a bloodbath in the fall.   If you sleep with a dog like Trump, you are going to get fleas.
