About an hour ago the State Department website’s presidential biography page for Cheeto McClownshoes was updated saying his term ended on January 11, 2021 at 19:49. Assuming that is Eastern Time and not UTC, it means that his term ended at 7:49 PM… five hours after the page was updated.
Check out that screen shot from one of the many twitter posts I saw that reported the page.
Unfortunately, that page is now down with the message, “We’re sorry, this site is currently experiencing technical difficulties. Please try again in a few moments.”
So what does it mean? There are three possible things that I can think of.
- The site was hacked and someone with a bad sense of humor decided to get us all excited just to watch our hearts break when Cheeto fails to resign.
- Someone on the State Department’s IT staff has had enough and just did it as a big giant fuck you to society.
- Cheeto McClownface is going to resign tonight and it leaked.
I’m betting it’s the first scenario. Some jerk is trying to get our hopes up only to see them dashed in a few hours.
ADDENDUM: Apparently it was scenario #2.
