John E. Bush Thinks the Government (and Hackers) Should Have Access to All of Your Shit.

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said Tuesday that encryption makes it harder for law enforcement to track down “evildoers” — and called for a “much better, more cooperative relationship” with Apple, Google, and other tech companies that are building uncrackable private communication apps into their new products.
When it was pointed out to ¡JEB! that hackers would also be able to read unencrypted data (or encryption with back-doors), all he could do was to look not too stupid and say "good point".

It's not just emails or text messages, of course. Banking and financial data are all encrypted to try and keep it out of the hands of hackers. But that concept was apparently novel to ol' ¡JEB!.

At this point, it's beginning to look as though Chimpy was the smarter one.
