Today, Donald Trump attacked Nordstrom on Twitter for being “unfair” to daughter Ivanka Trump by dropping her brand when sales dipped too much. (Whether or not this was the result of a boycott movement against her brand in protest of her father’s presidency is not known.)
CNN’s Bill Weir noticed something about the timing of the tweet, though…
According to White House schedule, this tweet was sent 20 minutes into his daily intelligence briefing. https://t.co/BoilJ6cV6L

Is Trump tweeting angry things about department stores during intelligence briefings? Are his tweets on a scheduler set to push them out while he’s in intelligence briefings? Is his unsecured phone in the meetings, too?
We reached out to the White House for comment.
