Presidential Alert

What is this bullshit? Shouldn’t it just be Emergency Alert?

Is this covert campaigning?

Your phone has been hacked. Give it to Groucho and toss all suspect phones into the sewers. It's the only way to be sewer.

I mean, sure.

Re: Presidential Alert

I read about this a week or two ago and my first thought was "how soon before the orange shitstain ignores the guidelines and sends out some horseshit message?" I'm guessing he'll fuck it up before the midterms.

I didn't plan to vote for him for re-election but after I got this alert I feel compelled to do so

FEMA only has access.

Presidents do not.

Could be a super secret plan to track certain people though.

If anything, another "Hawaii Incident" is more likely.

Reporting has nothing to do with Tweet Leakage.

I'd be more concerned with internal FEMA employees sending messages.

It’s called a joke.

Another Hawaii Incident would be awful.
