The Trump Organization’s official website, Trump.com, was infiltrated by a hacker last week who felt it appropriate that the real-estate mogul and presidential candidate’s home-base be home, for at least a few hours, ton amazing tribute to Jon Stewart.
The hacker, identified only by the Twitter handle @TelecomixCanada, left a long and memorable message for Stewart, whose run on the Daily Show came to a glorious end Thursday night.
The message to Stewart included some great digs at Trump, but mostly it was a heartfelt thank you to the man who made The Daily Show a bastion of truth, a trusted source for information and a belly full of laughter at the expense of the ignorant. Stewart touched us all, and I think it’s safe to say that anyone with the ability to would have done this same thing:
@TelecomixCanada hit the nail on the head with this:
Know, Sir, that your steadfast dedication to the irony and power of Truth has inspired a generation which we ourselves now serve. That our collective thanks appear here will, we hope, amuse you as much as it will them.
Nothing has ever been more true or appropriate. It was also particularly satisfying to have Donald Trump’s web hosting budget ridiculed. Those snarky Canadians certainly can deliver a line every now and again.
Apparently this isn’t the first time The Donald has had his “$3 web hosting” attacked. You’d think with all his money and success he would have spent a little on web security. In 2011, Trump.com was defaced by a Tunisian hacker. It would seem The Donald makes enemies wherever he goes. The site’s content was replaced with a simple page announcing the hacker and a website which lasted for most of a day.
Attacks like these against people as rich and powerful as Donald Trump have little to no effect on their lives, but watching them happen gives us little guys something to cheer about, if only for a few minutes.
