(Right after I posted this I noticed that El Jefe wrote about the same thing. Great minds, y’all.)
Donald Trump is just a wealth of information about cybersecurity. First off, expect his other son to be put in charge of it. “I have a boy who’s 10 years old. He can do anything with a computer.”
Asked about the Russians hacking us, Trump calmly explained it all.
And I know a lot about hacking. And hacking is a very hard thing to prove. So it could be somebody else.”
“I also know things that other people don’t know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation,” Trump responded when asked why he doubts intelligence reports of Russian hacking, according to a pool reporter.
When asked what Trump knows that other people don’t know, Trump responded, “You’ll find out on Tuesday or Wednesday.”
Or maybe Thursday, or …. hey, maybe it’s just like the secret stuff Trump said his investigators in Hawaii found about Obama’s birth certificate. We’re still holding our breath for that one.
And then there’s his solution to cybersecurity:
“You want something to really go without detection, write it out and have it sent by courier.”
And there’s no way in hell that any courier, who makes maybe $20 an hour, can be corrupted. You know, especially those riding bicycles. Those are galvanized bicycles with rocket fuel engines, by gawd, and no damn Russian could steal that bicycle right from under a 400 pound guy that Trump knows.
To be extra secure, and if you really want to outfox the Russians, you can write your message like one of those origami fortune tellers we used to make a camp. The Russians could never figure that out! Hell, it took Thelma all day to make one and she’s at least as smart as a Russian.
And think about it: Twitter by Courier should be fun. Slow, maybe, but fun. You just write something out a piece of paper and pass it around … to everybody. Or, you could use a courier, it’s up to you.
