White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement today on the government's finance bill on Twitter, which is quite common for the Trump administration. But the statement also happened to include news that the president is still planning to declare a national emergency over building a frontier wall – and it was not delivered on an official letterhead, but via a screenshot of the Apple Notes app. Even weirder: It has a black black dot, a sloppy error from the iOS 12 screen process, it looks like.
If you're not familiar, the Notes app is usually reserved for fame and grocery lists. But as we have seen from the press secretary's former tweets there is also some form of communication this administration is considered acceptable and normal.
What makes this even more unusual is the pen mark. This sometimes happens in IOS 12 when screen shots are taken, and an accidental pressure register like a pen entry. It can happen accidentally, and that's fine if you say you're sending funny memes to your friend. It's not okay if you are a press secretary in the United States, and you're delivering news to the citizens about a supposed "humanitarian crisis at the border."
If you saw this tweet and felt compelled to wipe the screen off, don't worry: it's not you, it's them.
