Texts from the giant talking yam????

Someone in a group I am in on FB said she received a text about defeating the liberal mob. I FB searched "POTUS texts" and it seems a few people got them. Isn't that a misuse of the system????

1. No more than when anyone else uses texts for political messages.

Political calls (and likely texts) are exempt from the do not call registry.

BUT lists of voters, sorted by party, are public records. Anyone can get those, and match them up presumably the same way Move-On does to use for political purposes. I'm pretty sure we got robo calls from POTUS in the last election urging us to vote for Hillary.

Same thing.

(I don't like it - I'd like my phone to be truly exempt - but it is not new or nefarious for teh president to allow his name to be used to promote candidates he likes.)

3. It's so gross.

Everything that man does is gross and only done to serve him and his ego.

4. I agree that everything about him is gross.

I just get concerned when he is doing the same things other politicians do (including our side) and we get all up in arms about it.

2. did he send during oval office time?

That's supposed to be against election rules but then so is colluding with Russia.
