Say, Is Trump’s Twitter Account A National Security Threat (Or Something)?

Politico is digging for a Narrative

Is Trump’s Twitter account a national security threat?
Intelligence and defense specialists fear the president-elect’s prolific tweeting could give foreign adversaries an advantage.

Donald Trump has years of experience launching Twitter wars. But now, as he prepares to take the highest office in the country, there are growing fears that his tweets could spur a genuine national security crisis.

Intelligence and defense specialists believe the president-elect’s use of the popular and powerful social media network is already being used by foreign agencies to analyze his personality, track his habits and detect clues about what to expect from a Trump-led American government.

Because they can’t get all that from his speeches, press releases, policy positions, and people he’s picked.

And that’s just based on what Trump writes on Twitter. It’s not even counting the vulnerabilities that could arise if overseas hackers invade his phone and digital accounts.

The same media was utterly unconcerned with Hillary’s insecure bathroom server.

“We’ve never had a president that’s shared so much of themselves, not just what they’re saying, but their psychological ticks in such an overt manner, and you can be sure that foreign actors are studying that, too,” said P.W. Singer, a defense expert and co-author of “Cybersecurity and Cyberwar.” “We’re beginning to see what excites him, what angers him, what sets him off. We’ve never had this ability to read so much on what a president is thinking.”

Right. Because his decades and decades being in the public eye are irrelevant.

But so far, at least, Twitter has proven one of the purest distillations of Trump around — a raw version of a businessman-turned-politician keen on ignoring the traditional conventions of the presidency.

And there’s the real problem: Trump brings his message directly to The people, rather than going through the media, who filter and spin his message. The MSM does not like this in the least. And, really, no matter what Trump does, the media will find a way to say “this is horrible!” And they’ll go looking for things, just like with Bush.

    Trumpski may grow into the job, but at his age, we doubt it.

    Our president-elect is a man-child with little control over his immediate feelings.

    His years and years in the public eye reveal him to a pussy-grabbing megalomaniac.

    Even if you don’t like Trump, even if he’s not your candidate, and even if you didn’t won’t to vote for him…

    Admit it, you gotta love watching those losing assholes suffer…

    What a load of bullsh*t.
    The media is upset that Trump is bypassing them and they can’t “filter” the news the way they want.

    And DP, you’re right. The closer we get to the inauguration, the losers are becoming more unhinged.

  6. Jeffery says:

    After getting off the phone with Trumpski, Turkey’s strongman, Erdogan, locked up Trumpski’s main man in Turkey, Barbaros Muratoglu of Dogan Holding. Trumpski had praised Muratoglu in the call, and spoke of his importance to the Trumpski org, which received $10 million from Dogan in the past year. Muratoglu probably wishes Trumpski would STFU.

    Turkey wants the US to extradite the Imam, Fethullah Gulen, who Erdogan has accused of masterminding a coup.

    John Bolton would recommend we invade Turkey.

    And still a little loser guy.

    John Bolton would recommend we invade Turkey.

    Now would that be considered fake news, disinformation, misinformation or just an out and out lie?

    The insanity runs deep in this one. He misses Stinky who cannot be reached for comment. Tee-Hee
