As Twitchy reported earlier, it was pretty easy to tell who had read The Hill’s tweet about the World Cup soccer ball Vladimir Putin gave President Trump as a gift, and who had actually clicked through to the story.

If you read beyond the spy thriller of a tweet, you learn that the chip is standard issue in the Adidas 2018 FIFA World Cup ball, and all it does is link you to a World Cup promotion on the Adidas website if you hold your smartphone up to it. Nevertheless, the ball underwent a standard security screening, as do all gifts to the president.

Still, the tweet got activist and actor Alyssa Milano’s attention.

We hope The Hill is enjoying all those retweets from The Resistance …
