Whoa. You have to read this because this is just stunning INCOMPETENCE. If it’s this easy for them to be pranked, one has to shudder at the thought of them accidentally giving away national security secrets. 

Masquerading as Priebus, the prankster emailed Scaramucci’s official account using a mail.com account on Saturday, the day after Priebus’ resignation was announced. “I had promised myself I would leave my hands mud free,” wrote the fake Priebus, “but after reading your tweet today which stated how; ‘soon we will learn who in the media who has class, and who hasn’t’, has pushed me to this. That tweet was breathtakingly hypocritical, even for you. At no stage have you acted in a way that’s even remotely classy, yet you believe that’s the standard by which everyone should behave towards you? General Kelly will do a fine job. I’ll even admit he will do a better job than me. But the way in which that transition has come about has been diabolical. And hurtful. I don’t expect a reply.”
The very real Scaramucci responded: “You know what you did. We all do. Even today. But rest assured we were prepared. A Man would apologize.”
Fake Priebus wrote back: “I can’t believe you are questioning my ethics! The so called ‘Mooch’, who can’t even manage his first week in the White House without leaving upset in his wake. I have nothing to apologize for.”
Actual Scaramucci responded: “Read Shakespeare. Particularly Othello. You are right there. My family is fine by the way and will thrive. I know what you did. No more replies from me.”

Holy moly. My jaw hasn’t even closed once from all the jaw-dropping that the news today has wrought upon us. 

Some reaction from those on Twitter:

Kelly Day 1:
Mooch out→news JK told Comey he may quit→news DJT dictated DJTJr's Russia reply→news lotsa aides tricked over email

It’s not like this election turned on the notion that people in power needed to be careful with email https://t.co/xPraihPowS
