That message was from Donald Trump. We know, absolutely terrifying.
The system was put in place during President Barack Obama‘s tenure to alert people of a dire threat, but it didn’t get its first test until TODAY. The Trump administration will probably claim this messaging as another victory, which will be a surprise to no one. LOLz slash sigh.
The FEMA message read:
“THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”
It didn’t take long, actually mere seconds, before Twitter started reacting.
Ch-ch-check out some of the best — and most chilling — responses to the alert (below)!
