Rogue Staffer Alert! Rogue Staffer Alert!

This error message was visible on Donald Trump’s Twitter account for 11 minutes on Thursday

Regular readers of Colorado Pols know that we are always amused when a politician blames an error of some kind on a “rogue staffer.” So, imagine our delight when we saw this news about Donald Trump’s Twitter feed going down for 11 minutes on Thursday.

As CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains:

Twitter confirmed that the outage had been caused by a rogue employee.

“Through our investigation we have learned that this was done by a Twitter customer support employee who did this on the employee’s last day,” read a tweet from Twitter’s government handle. “We are conducting a full internal review.”

Trump responded to the outage Friday in the most Trumpian fashion. “My Twitter account was taken down for 11 minutes by a rogue employee,” he tweeted Friday morning. “I guess the word must finally be getting out-and having an impact.”

Damn you, Rogue Staffer!

    You apply for Cillizza’s opening at the Washington Post yet? Dreams can come true.

    The Catholic Church is seeking candidates for the newly created position of "Patron Saint of Rogue Employees." (For Blessed are those who would risk life, limb, tenure and/or salary to smite the Demon trump, expose his evil lies, treason, treachery and corruption, and in so doing, restore truth, justice, fairness, sanity and genuine patriotism to the halls of American government.)

    Any suggestions?
