Fake news: BREAKING: Trump’s Android Device Believed To Be Source Of Recent White House Leaks
UPDATE: As pointed out by Owen in comments, this is actually a satirical piece, also “fake news.” And it works the way fake news work: so good you don’t think to check. Apologies. I swallowed it hook, line, and sinker. LG /update
This must be terrifically galling to Trump because it makes him look like an idiot, the typical buffoon big shot, calling down wrath and vengence on anyone guilty of leaking… Jeez, I’ve seen that in dozens of comedies: dramatic irony, it’s called. Always good for a laugh, since people like to laugh at the self-important brought up short.
And in fact, it is pretty funny.
From the Seattle Tribune and written by Lucas Bagwell:
If you’ve recently seen the hashtag – #DitchTheDevice trending on social media, it’s because, according to several private intelligence reports, the source of the multiple recent leaks within the White House is President Trump’s unsecured Android device.
Throughout the past several weeks President Trump and his administration have expressed extreme frustration over the multiple leaks provided to members of the press from inside the White House.
The recent leaks range from information regarding his executive orders (before he issued them), fighting and chaos among White House staffers, classified conversations with foreign leaders (specifically Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull & Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto), White House staffers conducting meetings in the dark because they can’t figure out how the lights work, and President Trump wandering the White House in his bathrobe.
According to information from an unconnected Washington insider, President Trump, who remains leery of the federal intelligence community and is suspicious enough of career politicians that he’s accused holdovers from the Obama Administration as being the ones responsible for leaking information, decided to contract multiple private intelligence agencies to investigate the leaks.
Initial reports from two such agencies, A.R.H. Intelligence and Z|13 Security, indicate they suspect the source of the recent White House leaks to be President Trump’s unsecured Android device.
