EM-Drabbles – Fifty-Four

The politician cursed.

Her favourite social media platform, the very one that had helped her reach her electorate, winning votes for her manifesto promising everyone the earth, had turned on her. She’d climbed the greasy pole with daggers between clenched teeth to stick in the backs of those she clambered over and she wasn’t used to having her will thwarted.

So they thought they could tag her posts with fact-check warnings?

How dare they!

When the hack was announced a month later, she hid her smile. The cost to her secret slush fund was worth every penny in embarrassment caused.
