On Tuesday, Donald Trump held a campaign rally in Austin that received so large a turnout that a line of would-be attendees could be seen stretching to the horizon outside the Travis County Exposition Center three hours before the GOP nominee would scheduled to speak.

But I come not to praise The Donald’s capacity for drawing crowds. He’s been doing that since throwing his hat in the ring. Rather, what is key is that one member of the fourth estate who did get in was Sahil Kapur, a reporter for Bloomberg. What is also key is that Kapur noticed something interesting about the list of WiFi networks available, and tweeted out a screen cap, which has been retweeted over 3,000 times:

Among the usual curious strings of letters and numbers is a network named “Clinton Email Server.” Hilarious!

A few of the retweeters noticed even funnier features of the network:

Naturally, there were critics, including Debbie Young, whose avatar reflects her preference in the upcoming election:

So let me get this straight. Demeaning nude statues of Trump go up in five cities, and liberals are unable to control their hilarity. But someone names his WiFi network after a scandal in which the Democratic nominee is embroiled, and the action is “childish.” Hypocrisy much?
