White House Social Media Tweet
FWIW: He's apparently since deleted it (along with all Tweets except the last five, as of this posting), but I could have sworn that I remembered seeing a recent Tweet from Dan Scavino, White House social media director, expressly telling reporters that the White House/Administration had "zero interest" in discussing social media security issues.

If it wasn't Scavino, it was somebody else close to the Administration, but I'm pretty sure it was him.

No, they are not being overblown
No.

This has been another episode of simple answers to simple questions.

 

If you really need to be reminded President Trump is the guy that claimed he does not need security briefings because he is "a smart guy". Do you think he listens to the security experts avialable to him? If he did has he given any indication at all that he could retain and process that information? Any sign that he would behave in any way other than how he has previously?
