Tiger Beat on the Potomac leads their morning email thingie with a remix of the old classic, but what about her emails: “‘Too inconvenient’: Trump goes rogue on phone security”
“President Donald Trump uses a White House cellphone that isn’t equipped with sophisticated security features designed to shield his communications, according to two senior administration officials — a departure from the practice of his predecessors that potentially exposes him to hacking or surveillance. The president, who relies on cellphones to reach his friends and millions of Twitter followers, has rebuffed staff efforts to strengthen security around his phone use, according to the administration officials. The president uses at least two iPhones, according to one of the officials.
“The phones — one capable only of making calls, the other equipped only with the Twitter app and preloaded with a handful of news sites — are issued by White House Information Technology and the White House Communications Agency … Trump has resisted their entreaties, telling them it was ‘too inconvenient,’ the same administration official said. The president has gone as long as five months without having the phone checked by security experts. It is unclear how often Trump’s call-capable phones, which are essentially used as burner phones, are swapped out. …
“Trump’s call-capable cellphone has a camera and microphone, unlike the White House-issued cellphones used by Obama. Keeping those components creates a risk that hackers could use them to access the phone and monitor the president’s movements. The GPS location tracker, however — which can be used to track the president’s whereabouts — is disabled on Trump’s devices.”
Such a shock to learn that our Narcissist/Boomer Prznint is more concerned with his instant gratification than with national security. I mean, who’da thunk it that the guy who is too bored to study up for his Nobel Prize Winning Peace Talks With Little Rocket Man could possibly be expected to delay his live-tweeting of Petunia & Pals every morning?
What we’re saying is the man has priorities.
Now, if Possum Hollar had a memory slightly greater than that of a goldfish (alleged to be 3 seconds, though Opinions Differ), they should be chanting Lock Him Up and saying that he is a traitor for exposing the country to espionage, which of course is laughable on the face of it: all our enemies have to do is dangle an Amero in front of our Grifter-in-Chief and he would give them the codes to the nuclear football if they asked.
Of course, it would serve some spooks right if they did listen in as Comrade Stupid dithered, bleated, and mewled to Sean Hannity on one of their late night
phone sex play dates.
The mind boggles about what Putin already knows about his greatest fans.
