So, the left is still up in arms after yesterday’s presidential alert on their phones.
In fact, they are so upset about this alert that a few liberals have banded together to sue the Trump administration and FEMA over the alert.
These unhinged leftists are claiming that the alert is a violation of First and Fourth Amendment rights.
Do you think The Presidential Alert System is a violation of rights and could be used in a bias manner? A lawsuit against President Trump and FEMA claims just that. STORY: https://t.co/FoTzwf4amh

The lawsuit that was filed by a single mother, a small business owner, and a journalist argues that the Presidential Alert System “violates” rights because it is tantamount to “hijacking private property for the purpose of planting a Government-controlled loudspeaker in the home and on the person of every American.”
Here is more from Fox 17:
However, the plaintiffs in the suit are making an effort to stop the alert system. Among the general concerns, the suit states Integrated Public Alert and Warning System Modernization Act -which became law in 2015- is vague and could be biased. The suit states the definitions of “threat to public safety” and “act of terrorism” in the act don’t clearly define when it can be used, opening the door for officials such as President Trump to define it as they see fit and potentially “broadcasting arbitrary, biased, irrational, and/or content-based messages to hundreds of millions of people.”
Specifically, the plaintiffs argue Government-mandated listening is a “hallmark of a Totalitarian state,” and claims it gives the Oval Office the ability to weaponize disinformation.
It seems that these leftists only care about this alert since it came during the Trump administration, but were apparently not so upset with it when Obama enacted it back in 2016. Well, we can’t let those pesky facts get in the way of a good temper tantrum now can we?
