Re: stupid politics
You miss the whole point of the article -- Trump bashing. The role of modern journalists these days.
They have to complain about the Trump Travel ban. Not only is it great alliteration, it has been vilified, the definition warped into Islamophobia and away from vetting. It gets people to read articles, tickles the group-think.
Some long-winded piece about the pros and (major) cons of searching computers. just isn't sexy. You have to explain why customs can look up your arse for drugs, but should leave your phone untouched.
