Friends, God, and Oh My God: Jon Coopere @joncoopertweets Follow Trump is running television ads to ask people to call 800-350-6647 and press 1 to DEMAND that Pelosi and Schumer fund the wall.

It is pointless to act on this number as the source is already biased for the wall and any dissenting call will just have their data collected, probably; I don’t have any real evidence of this but that’s my guess as to what is going on here.

Oh my god, the 50s TV announcer voice at that number…
Also, it will say press 1 to support the wall, repeat that, make the sound a cell phone makes when a call has been disconnected if you don’t respond, and then say “Press 2 if you do not support the wall.”


Did it to fact check, and it does in fact make the “end call” noise making you believe the call was done before you could press 2 to say you don’t support the wall.
