Translation: “Oh shit, there’s a lot of evidence on the organization’s computers”
Trump does not understand how hackers are paid “millions and millions…” for not doing their job.
Well, Trump… it’s sort of like paying porn-stars money for not talking about their adventures with you!
“You were in the White House for four years, you must know if that kind of counter-attack is possible”
I for one would be quite happy if Trump and his loyal followers stopped using computers (smartphones included).
Oh no! The Eternal God-President says that his uberloyal followers need to stop using computers. That means that we might see a mass exodus of Qnuts from the internet.
Wonka: “Stop. Don’t. Come back.”
Did the blog really do that badly? What an utterly miserable loser.
Hey everyone! It seems to me that automobile accidents are out of hand and could be entirely eliminated if we just ban motor vehicles and go back to the traditional horse and wagon systems of transportation!
He’s just jealous of the cybercriminals. If he had the intelligence to run a cybercrime heist, he’d be doing it himself.
I am forced to concede that my abacus has never been seized via ransomware.
On the plus side, Stuart Varney got the hot scoop that when Trump returns to office in August, our new cybersecurity administrator will be Baron Trump!
No great surprise, they spouted a lot of words to say absolutely nothing that had anything to do with reality. So pretty much par for this course. All that talk about “young people have computers” and can do “tremendous things with them,” that’s old people speak for “I know nothing about computers and I hate them!” My kids have computers, and they STILL come to me when they need fixing. It’s been the greatest disappointment of my life that my now adult children know less than I do about computers.
Lots of bit flipping, though, especially when used on the move.
[checks supply of quill pens and vellum] Yep, all okay here.
OK, well now SDNY now knows they need to seize not just records, but computers. Projection, everyone, projection!
To end home invasions we must stop using doors.
If an attention-craving monkey learns that flinging shit draws a crowd and does it all day everyday from then on, I wouldn’t call it a savant
(steps into your office with a gun) I’m holding you for ransom. Ware me, for I am armed.
No? Okay, fine, just give me the abacus and we’ll call it evens (and odds).
The reflexive reactionary response here reminds me of his plan to tear the electromagnetic catapults out of the USS Gerald R Ford and replace them with old fashioned steam catapults. He doesn’t really understand anything, but he believes that whatever idea he has MUST be genius.
Trump is an idiot savant with respect to social media (and so many other things), but the “savant” is silent.
I mean, he recommended that we try drinking bleach. Nobody should come to him for important decisions or advice.
Trump’s staggering ignorance goes so far beyond having learned absolutely nothing while president, though - he’s also unaware of things most grade-school students know and suffers from a complete and total lack of curiosity. The man’s so totally ignorant, it’s amazing that he could function as an adult in contemporary society, even with the insulating benefits of his family wealth and working at a job where he was expected to know very little (and was still bad at it). On a regular basis he utters nonsense that’s shocking coming from the mouth of an (ostensible) adult. I mean, here he is demonstrating he has no idea how any sort of businesses (including his own) actually work on the most basic level.
(I remain convinced that without his family’s wealth, Trump would be an inmate in some sort of institution, unable to function within the world and by its laws.)
That would actually work, though, if you managed to ban guns - and with little impact on the country. Trump’s proposal is like suggesting we end gun deaths by eliminating hands.
With Trump, that is literally everything. Some of his opinings are more spectacularly dumb than others, though.
I always thought of it as a “dumb AI” strategy, but it strikes me that Trump’s very much a “Clever Hans” in his media strategies - do various things, get positive feedback for one thing, do more of that, without understanding anything of what’s going on, nor what it means.
