When you hear the term ‘national emergency,’ perhaps it brings to mind doomsday ‘Day After Tomorrow’ or ‘Independence Day’ scenarios – but in fact, there were 31 active national emergencies ongoing in the U.S until recently and most people probably didn’t know. Which is why when President Donald Trump declared the 32nd national emergency in an ongoing battle for his U.S-Mexico border wall, he didn’t get the response he expected.
Saturday Night Live responded with a classic Alec Baldwin parody sketch of the announcement and then Twitter took it from there. Online users tweeted out how they were surviving since the ominous declaration with the hashtag #NotesFromNationalEmergency and it is clear the nation is suffering from nothing short of a zombie apocalypse.
