Donald Trump is once again poked the media in the eye.
During his recent “Thank You Tour” event in Iowa, ever the master at trolling Trump named his WiFi password for the press “BigLeague” forcing members of the press to use that phrase if they wanted to get onto his free Wi-Fi service.
Politico’s Kenneth Vogel sent out a tweet about the password he was forced to use in Des Moines, Iowa.

This must have caused many of the journalist covering Trump’s event to cringe when they had to type that password into their devices.
This is, of course, far from the first time Trump has tweaked the press who were forced to cover his events. During the campaign the GOP nominee passed out water to the press that had his photo and his “Make America Great Again” slogan on the bottle.
Amusingly, many reporters were forced to drink from Trump water bottles and many did, too, because these venues were often very hot inside. I can attest to this fact because I personally covered Trump rallies as a member of the press and witnessed this very thing (and, yes, I have my souvenir Trump water bottle in my little collection).
Anyway, Vogel got quite a lot of feedback on his tweet about the rally password. Not all of it complimentary, of course…
@kenvogel gosh it’s gonna be fun to watch journos squirm for the next 4 (8) years.
