* One of the opening fluff stories of Palladium Books' ''"Systems Failure"'' RPG was the transcription of an emergency message by the President of the United States in light of the world-wide chaos that is happening during Y2K... that gets interrupted violently when one of the insect alien Bugs that caused said chaos teleports right in the middle of the Oval Office through the electrical wiring and slaughters everybody inside.

* The pilot of ''Series/DesignatedSurvivor'' ends with the newly sworn-in President Kirkman beginning to give one to the American people in light of the terrorist attack on Congress. We only get to hear snippets of it via news broadcasts in the beginning of the second episode, and from the sound of it, it was not received well by the public.

* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' features two of these in its concluding book, ''[[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Ascension]],'' both in response to the Technocracy's desperate attempt to stop the [[MassSuperEmpoweringEvent mass-Awakening of mages across the world]]; the first is from the President of the United States, the second from the Premier of China. Though they vary distinctly in tone, they're both clear and obvious attempts by the Technocracy to use the Traditions as a scapegoat for the disaster, including a rather slapdash attempt to pass off the very real magic on display as the result of [[SharedMassHallucination mind-altering drugs.]]

* Done in Stephen King's ''TheStand'', where the president can't even get through his speech without starting to cough like crazy, even as he's telling everyone there's nothing to fear and a vaccine is coming.

* ''FirstFamily'', with Bob Newhart as the President, had a scene where some of his advisors reviewed pre-recorded addresses to be used in the event of [[WorldWarIII nuclear attack]], varying depending on the amount of warning time. The one for if the missiles would hit in twenty or thirty seconds was literally the President with a voice-over of PorkyPig's stuttering "ThatsAllFolks!" sign-off.
