JOHN MCAFEE: I’ll decrypt the San Bernardino phone free of charge so Apple doesn’t need to place a back door on its product
Cybersecurity expert John McAfee is running for…
I fucking love this guy. In an op-ed for Business Insider titled "I'll decrypt the San Bernardino phone free of charge so Apple doesn't need to place a back door on its product."
In the first four paragraphs he invokes Hitler.

And to back it all up…. he declares in h@x0r mic drop style, "If you doubt my credentials,"Google 'cybersecurity legend' and see whose name is the only name that appears in the first 10 results out of more than a quarter of a million."
