You are clearly julia stiles levels of tech illiterate.
The "Hacking" was a standard signal interception operation. We have been doing shit like this with Russia in the game of Tit for Tat since telegraph's. Literally thousands to hundreds of these happen on an hourly basis. You can actively Google a map of live cyber warfare in real time and see it on no less than three different reputable websites.
>Muh INFLUENCE OF THE ERECTION!
You think JIDF, CTR/SB/CREW, The Russians®, and /pol/ are the only game in town when it comes to influencing people through shitposting? This crap has been going on since the printing press was a pipe dream
Listen closely, do not argue because you will most likely be wrong.
Every nations government has their own "russian hackers". Every political party has "paid shills" and "public relations" teams that purposely hire out idiots such as yourself to purposefully inflate the amounts of video views likes, and to engage online comments sections with an agenda.
The entire MO of these corps/orgs is the influencing of public opinion. The entire goal is to influence how you vote with your dollar at the store or ballot box.
So no shit Russians were purposefully planting propaganda on both ends of the spectrum and "hacking" us. Corporate Espionage is a thing as well. Those of us on the right-wing have been telling you about this shit since the 1950s…And people like me have been trying to tell you about groups like this since before there was even an integrated circuit.
