Hawaii was the butt of late-night comedy following the false missile alert.
Jimmy Kimmel joked that the fact it took the state 38 minutes to issue a correction was very Hawaii.
“It’s about as Hawaii as it gets,” he said.
Trevor Noah wondered what someone would do if they thought they were going to get “nuked.”
“Do you huddle with your loved ones,” he said. “Do you have an orgy with everyone else in line at Wendy’s?”
On Monday, the Late Show began with the “20th re-airing of Don Ho’s classic 1967 concert at the Hollywood palace” from a local Hawaii TV affiliate. A banner crawled across the screen reading: “Ballistic missile inbound, seek shelter.”
It continued: “By the way, when we say seek shelter we mean dig a grave because there’s nowhere to hide.”
Jimmy Fallon poked fun about President Donald Trump’s response.
“Trump didn’t comment until the next day,” he said. “That’s classic Trump right there. The first time there actually is fake news, he’s nowhere to be found.
“That’s your thing! It’s your cue.”
