Forums - Politics Discussion - Presidential Alert?

I was just on the train minding my business listening to music and my phone made a noise and I got a presidential alert text. Has this happened to anyone else and why is it happening?

It's from FEMA. Probably just going to be used in weather emergencies. 



Over 200 million people received this message in the U.S. It was a test.

If it was a test to see if America really is land of the free, then the test has just been failed miserably.

That if America were the land of the free this wouldn't be happening. Trump is breaching privacy like it's going out of style. This only adds to the many awful things that have come out of his administration. Just impeach him already. -_-

I'm not really a proponent of the mass notification, but how do you live in a world with so much hyperbole.

I just know an unfit president when I see one, and I've seen one since 2016.
