What could possibly go wrong with this idea!

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is testing a new system next week that allows President Trump to send messages directly to U.S. cellphones.

All major wireless firms and more than 100 mobile carriers are participating in the new Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) program that allows for presidential alerts, FEMA wrote in a Thursday statement.

1. His twitter account seems to be dying after the bot purge...

Guess he's looking for more people to gaslight.

Jesus, who would believe him anyway?

2. I saw that this morning.

I looked and looked for The Onion link.

Can we block the president?

3. What a damn waste of time and money. I'll just block the calls.

Oh crap. Further down in the article it says we are not allowed to "opt out." I suppose that means we can't block the calls.

4. More like...



"There was no collision".

"It's a witch hunt".

"Deep state DoJ traitors issuing illegal warrants".

"They're coming to take me away. I need you to surround the WH to keep us in power".

Seriously, if he only sends "water is wet" kind of chit we'll be lucky. This is the beginning of his one way megaphone (or is that MAGAphone) to all the faithful who don't follow him on twitter.

That's the real terrifying part of this one for me.

7. My phone has been configure for years

There are several emergency settings on my phone. It includes various things like Amber alerts. You can turn most of them off. The one you can't is called, "Presidential Alerts". I"ve never seen it used.
