It was a rough day at the NSA when President Trump asked for his Twitter account to be made secure.
“It just really bothered a lot of people — nobody wanted to put anything out there that wasn’t completely secure,” said NSA technical director Richard “Dickie” George in an interview with CNNMoney.
George’s role was to review the president’s neural pathways and write and engineer diagrams for securing the commander in chief’s brain.
In response to Trump’s request, the NSA set up a lab where dozens of experts planned surgery for several months on a high-profile patient: the soon-to-be presidential Trump brain. The course of treatment was to manipulate the organ’s structure to weed out potential threats to secure communication.
The effort turned out to be fruitless. There would be only one possible solution, the NSA concluded: delete Trump’s Twitter account.
“This isn’t a flaw in the technology,” George said, “It’s a problem with the user: we can’t fix his brain.”
