It looks set to be the debate of the century. The eccentric John McAfee, founder and former owner of eponymous anti-virus software company, McAfee, stated this Thursday that he wants to debate the chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Jay Clayton.
McAfee further challenged Jay Clayton to a televised debate on CNN, similar to how he debated the FBI regarding a discussion about privacy. ‘I challenge the SEC to debate me on CNN. I debated the FBI two years ago when [they] overstepped their bounds. You, the SEC, have overstepped your bounds. I ripped the FBI a new asshole on CNN. I welcome the opportunity to RIP the SEC a new asshole‘. He also requested that people ‘Flood this mother fucker‘ with voicemails and emails of people demanding that he engages in a debate.
Having returned briefly to posting memes, McAfee then encouraged his followers to email or call Clayton and the SEC to encourage the regulator to debate him. Whether or not McAfee’s efforts will come to fruition remains to be seen, but this author wishes him the best of luck.
