A Roblox player infiltrated the White House press corps

The American political system often throws up some fairly strange stories, but this might be one of the weirdest yet – as a Roblox player managed to infiltrate the White House press corps.

An individual by the name of “Kacey Montagu”, who was able to ask questions directly to White House press secretary Jen Psaki, has now been revealed as an imposter. Politico ran an extensive story on Montagu, detailing how they created the fake persona and were able to fool White House insiders.

Montagu had apparently been masquerading as a White House correspondent since last year, creating a fictional “White House News” outlet to do so. They set up two Twitter accounts to repost information from official sources, and the speed and efficiency of these accounts attracted the attention of White House correspondents (and even some working in the administration). A senior advisor and chief spokesperson for vice president Kamala Harris, and Michael LaRosa, press secretary for Jill Biden and Symone Sanders, were both following one of the accounts.
