As if the Trump administration didn’t have enough Twitter problems, with the President going off on unhinged rants almost everyday, using a private email server, and using an unsecured cellular phone to tweet from his personal Twitter account. Clearly, national security is of little concern to the Trump administration.
Now however, press secretary Sean Spicer is following his bosses lead.
As cyber hacker The Jester pointed out, Spicer appears to have made the same mistake not only once, but twice. Two days in a row. Spicer tweeted what appears to be two different passwords on both Wednesday and Thursday of this week:
‘#FLASH – Trumps White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, tweets out password, not one, but twice in 2 days. Just amazing.’
Currently it remains unconfirmed as to whether or not the tweets were in fact passwords were to his Twitter account, email, some other online account, or even passwords at all. They were promptly deleted, likely after he’d realized what he’d done.
On Thursday it was also discovered that President Trump’s official Twitter account, @POTUS, is tied to a personal, unsecured, Gmail account.
What’s hilarious, and has certainly been pointed out numerous times by Twitter users, is the fact that Donald Trump relentlessly attacked Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.
‘This was a password that Sean Spicer accidentally tweeted. Spicer is Trump’s press guy. Trump campaigned on Clinton’s lax security. #fun’
Several Twitter users mocked the new press secretary for his two-time mistake.
Comedian Patton Oswalt mocked Spicer, tweeting:
‘Ha ha Sean Spicer Tweeted out his password. What an idiot.
‘I’ve hacked Sean Spicer’s twitter using the password he tweeted earlier. A pitiable cry for help.’
