Apologies to anyone we offended w/ this tweet twitter.com/fema/status/26… our intent was to inform survivors of disaster assistance process.—

Oof. Bureaucrats might want to stay away from making “jokes” on Twitter. But when they don’t, Twitchy is here to document their tweets. You’re welcome.
On Friday evening, FEMA announced to the world that “no doesn’t always mean no.”
So, sometimes it’s not a legitimate “no”?
The agency was referring to rejected requests for disaster assistance in the botched tweet. But some Twitterers lashed out at FEMA for the play on “no means no,” a phrase often used in discussions of rape and sexual consent.
Of course, now that FEMA has apologized “to anyone we offended,” this will blow over pretty fast. After all, this was President Lady Parts’ FEMA; it’s not like it’s a Republican who trivialized rape, so no biggie! All will be forgiven.
