The United States's top cybersecurity official had the perfect response to being fired by Trump.
Chris Krebs, who headed up the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), was terminated for trying to reassure people that the election wasn't fraudulent.
He shared a screenshot of the tweets in which Trump publicly announced his firing which had also been shared by Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill, adding this Star Wars quote:
In defending democracy, do or do not, there is no try.
This is the way.
In defending democracy, do or do not, there is no try. This is the way. #Protect2020 @HamillHimself @PedroPascal1 https://t.co/nhF4FrVqhT
Trump's announcement that he had taken this action sparked backlash among Democrats and some Republicans. His accusation that Krebs analysis of cybersecurity threats relating to the election was "inaccurate" was marked as disputed by Twitter.
Who would Trump be if we continue with this Star Wars analogy?
2016 was The Empire Strikes Back
2020 is Return of the Jedi
I have hope for America again https://t.co/xrLR0phMJt
