Breaking news out of Washington D.C. this morning, as White House officials fear that President Trump’s Twitter account has been hacked. The events related to the alleged hack began yesterday, around 2:30 p.m., after staffers noticed a tweet from the President that sounded uncharacteristically sane. The tweet was addressing the erroneous claim that the President had made before regarding a terror attack in Sweden. Trump’s tweet read,
“My statement as to what’s happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.”
This tweet immediately raised suspicion among cabinet members due to the lack of venom or denial within the tweet. While the 140 (or less) character statement stops short of saying “my bad” or “oops”, it still represents a major departure from the real @POTUS’ “tweet tone”. The panic has continue to escalate as the President has been golfing and/or napping since 2 p.m. yesterday (about the time that the tweet went live) and has been unavailable to confirm or deny his authorship.
One of Trump’s top officials did comment, but only under the condition of anonymity (Sean Spicer). “We’re all scared shitless over here. If the President didn’t tweet that, we’re all fucked. Me, Spicer, Miller… all of us!” (We believe that Spicer used “Me” and then “Spicer” to make it look as if he wasn’t the one who gave us the comment). Spicer added, “I just don’t have a good feeling about this. That tweet was actually dealing in reality and not his [Trump] fantasy land. He might kill us all!”
