Media covering President Trump’s rally in Georgia on Saturday hilariously had to enter the password “RiggedElection!” for a network called “Make America Great Again” to have access to Wi-Fi.
This is not the first time the Trump campaign has a trolled the media with Wi-Fi networks. At one of his pre-Election Day rallies in Michigan, the Wi-Fi network was set to “BidenBuiltTheCages” with the password “TrumpBuiltTheWall!!!”
The Georgia rally was held to support Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue in their January 5 runoff elections.
But the most interesting part of the password used by Trump’s team is what happened when Jenna Ellis, the senior legal advisor to the campaign, tweeted a photo featuring a paper with the media’s Wi-Fi login instructions:
Fake News media has to type this in if they want WiFi. 😉 pic.twitter.com/q4blSvcla8

Twitter, which seems to flag Trump posts like a reflex now, literally flagged this tweet with its usual disclaimer “This claim about election fraud is disputed.”
Disputed? It’s a Wi-Fi password. Are Jack Dorsey and the gatekeepers at Twitter so terrified about allegations of voter fraud they will literally flag a Wi-Fi password as disputed?
