Amazon’s Alexa to allow donations to presidential candidates

Announcing that customers will now be able to make donations to presidential candidates using Alexa, Amazon, in a blog, revealed that donations up to $200 can be made by simply saying ’Alexa, donate to (candidate name)’. The contributions can be made from the month of October onwards.

Kinda genius in a way. I could see a lot more people impulse donating after watching the news or something, where otherwise they'd be too lazy to pull up the campaign site on their phone or computer. Also I would hope Alexa asks for confirmation. Could you imagine: "Alexa donate $200 to Bernie Sanders" Alexa: "Donating $200 to Joe Biden" "Wha- NO!"
