DHS Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Director Christopher Krebs has drawn a parallel between a pineapple pizza and the US election that called a stir for the Internet trolls.
The tweet had a poster describing the tactics due to which foreign trolls derived the electors. The theme of the tweet was exclusively tropic fruit while lunch.

Krebs said that the Agency made attempts to reinforce the national immune system for disinformation: “How do you take the tactics, techniques, and procedures of the bad guys, and educate the American people? How do you explain, ‘This is how you’re being manipulated, this is how they’re hacking your brain?'”
That explains the Krebs’s team was glad discussion tastes preferences while lunch. “First there was a bunch of arguing about salt and vinegar potato chips,” said Geoff Hale, who leads the group. “But that was nothing compared to the argument that broke out over pineapple on pizza.”
After their discussion that became the further subject for talks behind the table, the team realized that it was the ideal line to make the Americans vulnerable.
“It reminded us of these genuine, heartfelt opinions that can be exploited to fan the flames,” he said. “It’s hard to explain to people that their heartfelt opinions are being used to unconsciously exploit them.”
The theme of a pineapple took a virus effect on the citizens and State Secretaries who watch for the election. Someone understood a joke, someone did not. State Secretary of Vermont commented on #waronpineapple showing “how foreign bad actors sow chaos.”
Pineapple on Pizza? Yes, please! @CISAgov uses the #WarOnPineapple to show how foreign bad actors sow chaos to undermine election integrity: target divisive issues; create fake accounts; amplify & distort; take it mainstream; & move it offline. #protect2020 Think before you link! pic.twitter.com/4uMPZ83Iad

The National Association of State Election Directors (NASED) does not prefer a pineapple on pizza tweeting “NO WAY!” that the President supported it.
The National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) commented on with a pizza image writing only “we are just going to leave this here.”
We are just going to leave this here. #WarOnPineapple
