Fox News sent Sean Hannity to Singapore with a burner phone out of fear that hackers would access his communications with Donald Trump.

Donald Trump’s reported use of unsecure cell phones has been cause for serious alarm within the intelligence community, but it’s also raised red flags at another institution in frequent contact with the president: Fox News.

Top hosts at the cable news network, like Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro, are known to communicate regularly with Trump (New York magazine reported that the president and Hannity like to chat before bedtime). But as stories have emerged — like one May report from Politico — that Trump finds properly securing his own communications “too inconvenient,” some at Fox have become fearful about their own exposure to hackers when talking with the president, according to people familiar with the matter.

That concern came to a head as Fox News prepared to cover the high-profile US summit with North Korea last week. Some at the network worried that Chinese agents might seek to bug Hannity’s phone while he was in Singapore to sweep up his communications with Trump, so the host used a burner phone, according to a person familiar with the matter.

“It is standard operating procedure for Fox News to employ secure communications whenever our teams are overseas covering major events,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement to BuzzFeed News.

The paranoia runs so deep that Fox sources say they are also cautious when talking to Hannity himself — because you’re never sure who may be listening.

I love that last part. 

In other words, there is so much concern that Trump has been compromised, that people fear to talk to somebody who talks to him, might put their security at risk as well. 

Of course, since the Russians undoubtedly have free access to all of Trump’s communications it is very likely that every damn thing that Hannity has ever whispered into Trump’s ear is stored on audio files at the Kremlin. 

Which I am guessing already means he has been compromised, if not recruited by Putin.

    If that dumbass Trump hasn’t been keeping his phone secure, then Hannity’s efforts are pointless.
    We’re dealing with such ‘geniuses’ here.

      It is well-sourced that Trump does not use a secure phone.

        Yeah, he doesn’t want to use a secure phone because it is “inconvenient”. Since the IT dept does all the work, what is there to cause any inconvenience? Probable he doesn’t want anyone to know all the private numbers of those russians and Chinese that he is sell out the country to.

    Not to mention, as presidential communication, it is all supposed to be archived.

    You can bet that if a President Hillary Clinton was using an unsecured phone, that Devin Nunes would be 18 months into a 4-year investigation, Sean Hannity would be howling about it every night, and Paul Ryan would have initiated impeachment proceedings.

    OT:”pointing his stubby little fingers at everyone else”

    “Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order. Most children come without parents… <WTF?
    “Our Immigration policy, laughed at all over the world, is very unfair to all"< ~IT's You

    "“He’s doing it again this week by falsely blaming Democrats for his own policy of forcibly separating migrant children from their parents at the border, which he could stop with one phone call.” rather they ~“infest our Country,”

    Children in detention camps without their mothers and fathers, the youngest in “tender age” facilities—now there’s a tawdry, Orwellian use of a loving word like “tender” if ever there was one. “This executive order would replace one crisis for another. Children don’t belong in jail at all, even with their parents, under any set of circumstances. If the president thinks placing families in jail indefinitely is what people have been asking for, he is grossly mistaken.”

    (under the belief that charging more for rent will prompt those receiving federal assistance to enter the workforce and earn more income. ‘It’s our attempt to give poor people a way out of poverty,’ Benny Carson said in a recent interview with Fox News.)
    (Among the most consequential ideas is a proposal to shift the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, a subsistence benefit that provides aid to 42 million poor and working Americans, from the Agriculture Department to a new mega-agency that would have ‘welfare’ in its title—a term Mr. Trump uses as a pejorative catchall for most government benefit programs.)

    "We are becoming a mean boy nation, a nation once of immigrants but now one of bullies and tyrants."

      Winning! NOT
      For Trump, there are two types of people; Donald Trump, and losers. Donald Trump was defeated this week by the two things he hates most: immigrants, and the media.
      “The stories and the coverage combined two things; first, they exposed how gleefully the Trump Administration viewed the pain and fear of children. Second, they made Americans face what was being done in their name.”
      “The press has to lose for Trump to win. The press has to fail for Trump to triumph. He often bests them in single combat, but like the nerdy kid who has had enough and finally knocks the bully on his ass, mainstream reporters and commentators wrecked Trump’s week.”
      “This was the worst week of Trump’s administration,”

      ” Trump campaign boss Corey Lewandowski is back on the road with the president.

      Lewandowski, who was fired from the Trump campaign in June 2016 after punching a protestor at a rally, has remained close to the president.

      This week, he was back in hot water after mocking a migrant girl separated from her family with a dismissive “womp womp” during a TV interview.

      And as Trump holds campaign rally-style events before the midterms, Lewandowski was in tow for a trip to Vegas, even riding aboard Air Force One.

      As the New York Times reported, Lewandowski received a “hero’s welcome” in Vegas.

      He “posed for selfies and shook hands with supporters,” in a crowd that went wild for Trump.”<rawstory

    Hannity needn’t bother with all of that- Putin has full access to Trump’s phone anyway.The only way for Hannity to keep his shit to himself is to act like a professional- no chance.
