"Brandis makes statements about the government accessing people's
private messages (he specifically mentioned Whatsapp and iMessages) and
thinks no one will have a problem with it because of what they publicly
share on social media. One would hope -- for the sake of their own
sanity -- that Brandis is being deliberately obtuse for the sake of
pushing his non-backdoor backdoors. The only other explanation is that
Brandis is an idiot who can't suss out the difference between private
communications and public sharing."
