New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush inadvertently hit President Obama when he attempted to mock President-elect Trump’s commentary on the hack of the DNC.
Early Saturday Trump sent several tweets in which he blamed the DNC for the hack of its emails due to “gross negligence” and Thrush wasn’t able to resist the chance to take a swipe at the president-elect.
Only reason the hacking of the poorly defended DNC is discussed is that the loss by the Dems was so big that they are totally embarrassed!

The former Politico reporter, who was caught asking for approval for stories he wrote from Hillary Clinton’s campaign, argued that it is the president’s responsibility when a hack of that magnitude occurs.
Isn’t it a commander-in-chief’s responsibility to protect US institutions from foreign attacks? ‘General welfare’ or selective welfare? https://t.co/XuJLo8Yeq4

As social media pointed out Trump isn’t the president until Jan . 20.
Um ….. Maybe you should ask Obama that? It was on his watch, afterall. https://t.co/8gwb6SddS1

@GlennThrush Really! Obama completely failed to protect the personal data of MILLIONS of current, past, and even potential gov’t employees!

@GlennThrush Yes, it is but as usual Obama was golfing, fund raising or campaigning for Hillary.
