  1. this is some FUCKING dumb ass shit why someone is not fired over this is beyond words and these businesses that kicked people out should be boycotted democrats should be blamed only care about filling there own pockets and not providing a adequate plan or shelters for the people…SHAME ON YOU

  2. Emergency officials are getting paid, but they can’t even fucking read. They just click buttons like toddlers. Difference is they act stupid on tv acting as if they know what they are doing. Demeanor and tone doesn’t mean shit. Doesn’t matter how they try to assert themselves. Performance, results and consistency is what matters. These idiots are making Hawaii look as stupid as they are.
