A lot of leftists are definitely suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. They say they hate President Donald Trump and want him to go away but can’t stop talking about him, thinking about him or complaining about him. And on Friday, they received news that sent some into a panic.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be testing a new part of the Emergency Alert System (EAS).
They’re working on an alert that allows Trump to message Americans on their cell phones.
From Daily Wire:
FEMA made the announcement in a statement:
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) on September 20, 2018. The WEA portion of the test commences at 2:18 p.m. EDT, and the EAS portion follows at 2:20 p.m. EDT. The test will assess the operational readiness of the infrastructure for distribution of a national message and determine whether improvements are needed.
“THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed,” the message will say.
Another message will go out over radio and television as well.
“The EAS is a national public warning system that provides the President with the communications capability to address the nation during a national emergency,” the statement continued. “The test is made available to EAS participants (i.e., radio and television broadcasters, cable systems, satellite radio and television providers, and wireline video providers) and is scheduled to last approximately one minute.”
And this is the part that’s driving the leftists over the edge:
“Users may opt of receiving alerts in the imminent threat and AMBER categories but cannot opt out of receiving Presidential alerts,” FEMA said.
“Presidential Alerts are to be used during a national emergency, though none have been sent to date. This will be the first national WEA test.”
“Prepare to die, folks,” says Talking Points Memo editor Josh Marshall.
Others were upset there was no opting out of the alert.
*WARNING FOR GRAPHIC LANGUAGE*
In other words, they’d rather miss being notified about a national emergency because they hate Trump so much.
If that isn’t the height of Trump Derangement Syndrome, not sure what is.
