Top White House Officials FOOLED By E-Mail Prankster
I don’t know how this story kind of went under the radar, but here we are — the same administration that harangued Hillary Clinton over and over again for her e-mails and how they got tricked by maybe or maybe not the Russians — top aides in the Trump administration got tricked by an absurdly and weirdly obvious figure — known as @SINON_REBORN on Twitter. Sinon hacked no one, he did not mask the e-mails he created instead — as he says —
So what was in those e-mails? Well, he started out with a fake e-mail made on an Outlook address that made it seem as if it was from Jared Kushner and he e-mailed the Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert, inviting him out a dinner. The security adviser then gave the fake Jared Kushner his e-mail apropos of nothing — which is pretty insanely weird considering that a big part of Bossert’s job is cyber security. There’s more posted all over his Twitter feed — as even Eric Trump is tricked into thinking that he’s chatting with his brother.
But why did he target Scaramucci? Well, according to Sinon it was due to Scarmucci’s mocking of the disabled — something seemingly shared by this entire goldamned administration.
This isn’t this prankster’s first foray into this kind of thing, as additionally he’s e-mailed Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs and Michael Corbat of Citigroup earlier this year. The prankster is currently hosting a GoFundMe to prank more and release a book about it, and if there’s any interest to donate to that kind of thing you can find the book here.
