Hmm, Whatever Could Be Going On With The State Department's Trump Bio Page?
The State Department seemed to be getting a bit ahead of itself on its website on Monday. That's when the department published a bizarre notice on its website saying President Trumpโ€™s term was ending a full nine days ahead of schedule. According to Gizmodo, the notice gave rise to speculation that something was going on at the agency. However, two current-serving diplomats with knowledge of the situation reported the erroneous notice was the result of a disgruntled employee. For at least an hour, the State Departmentโ€™s biography page for Donald J. Trump claimed his presidency is ending in matter of hours, at approximately 5:40 p.m. Later, the same page redirected to a 404 page saying the site was 'currently experiencing technical difficulties.'
