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. Scroll down below to see how people are handling the end of days and don't forget to upvote your favs!

The National Emergencies Act of 1976 was signed by President Gerald Ford. Every six months the House and the Senate are to review the declaration to see if it’s still necessary. Both chambers of Congress can pass a joint resolution to end national emergencies.

They go by different names, right? You got world religion and mythology that’s full of mentions of demons or spirit creatures. People who’ve actually seen these creatures almost always describe their encounter as this, as with an entity that takes on a form of your worst fears, or your deepest sadness, or your greatest loss... TRUMP.

By the time the dotard is going to leave the White House, the GOP will suddenly push for laws to limit the powers of the next Democratic president. Imagine that there will be a new tax reform where rich people actually do have to pay taxes.

I always knew the day would come, but I never thought they'd actually go through with it! Spam has been deemed a controlled substance, only for sale to those with a prescription. I dread the day my stockpile is exhausted and I'm forced to turn tricks to get my jelly covered meat fix. Well played Trump. Well played.
