Over the New Year’s weekend, Donald Trump told reporters of his
interesting moronic idea of how to deal with the threat of cyber attacks. What was his grand plan, you are probably asking? Send important information by courier, like the old days. Yes. Send it by courier. He actually said that!
He said more, too:
“It’s very important, if you have something really important, write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old fashioned way because I’ll tell you what, no computer is safe,” Trump responded when asked about the importance of cybersecurity, according to pool reporters.
“I don’t care what they say, no computer is safe. I have a boy who’s 10 years old, he can do anything with a computer. You want something to really go without detection, write it out and have it sent by courier,” Trump reiterated.
I just don’t know even know anymore. How did we get to this point, America?
Trump also tried to cast more doubt on the FBI, CIA and Homeland Security reports that prove Russia interfered with the US election and swung it in his favor.
“I know things that other people don’t know” about Russian hacking allegations, Trump said.
“I just want them to be sure, because it’s a pretty serious charge, and I want them to be sure.”
They are sure, Donny. It’s not up for debate anymore.
Trump is clearly too involved in kissing up to his boyfriend, Vladimir Putin, to take our intelligence agencies at their word. What does this say about the state of our country starting Jan. 20, that a President would side with the Russian President over our own agencies?
