America got something new to talk about when the Presidential Alert was unleashed on citizens Wednesday.
More than 200 million U.S. mobile phones received a test Presidential Alert in a trial designed to make sure the emergency communications system works properly. While President Donald Trump wasn't personally involved in the alert -- it was run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) -- the country couldn't help but joke about receiving unsolicited messages from the commander in chief.
Late-night hosts like Jimmy Kimmel were quick to jump in on the fun on Twitter, while others, including ET, drew comparisons to other mystery texters in pop culture.
