Seriously? You're going to go with the "if it's not Brietbart it's fake news" angle? The whole incident was described on a Trump supporter's / Mar-a-Lago member's facebook page, and in a bunch of other sources. Even Sean Spicer didn't try to deny it.

Getting back from your attempt to change the subject, keep in mind that Mar-a-Lago is just a piece of evidence in a longer chain. Trump has spent an entire campaign bragging about breaking rules - there's no reason to believe he'd start following rules about when he can have his phone if he didn't want to.

But if they are whoever tasked at keeping the situation secure should be fired.
Nobody was fired after this:

The president gets to make the rules - everyone else just gets to make suggestions. So if Trump wants to overrule someone who tells him to not bring his android phone into a SCIF, he can. And the Mar-a-Lago example indicates that he might be willing to do exactly that.

And within 30 seconds of reading your post, I came up with the idea of storing recordings on a phone, and then forwarding them later when the signal isn't blocked.

Except that I didn't actually come up with that idea, it's how many real world apps work (and how much eavesdropping malware works).

Now, slightly different case. Hear me out:
- You work for a FOREIGN gov agency on critical material (say nuclear for instance)
- You are invited to the US for a collaboration, so you take work (encrypted) laptop with you.
- You are not allowed by your gov to give access to anyone
- At US border, TSA asks for access.
What do you do ? What CAN you do ?
