Donald Trump WTF?!

Clueless Trump Urges U.S. To Stop Using Computers And ‘Go Back’ To Paper As A Solution To Cyberattacks

We’ve all known for some time that failed, one-term former President Donald Trump isn’t exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer, but something he said Monday morning during a phone interview with Fox Business host Stuart Varney may well go down on the Annals of Trump as one of the most absurd things ever uttered by a human being in the 21st Century.

Varney asked Trump how he thought the United States could best respond to cyberattacks such as the ones recently perpetuated by Russian hackers against the Colonial Pipeline and JBS Foods. The ex-president replied:

“The way you stop it is you go back to a much more old-fashioned form of accounting and things. You know, I have a son who is so good with computers. He’s a young person and he can make these things sing and when you put everything on internet and on all of these machines — you never see a piece of paper — I really think that you have to go back to a different form of accounting, a different form of compiling information.”

Trump then complained that “young people… can’t walk without computers,” adding:

“As a young person, my 15-year-old son is, you know, he’s just a genius with this stuff. And you have people that are going to break into systems. I think you have to go back and you have to be much more reliant, there has to be much better security.”

Seconds later, however, Trump proved that he knows diddly about anything related to cybersecurity, telling Varney:

“I don’t know how the hell they get paid, by the way, Stuart. You’re going to have to explain that to me.”

Yeah, good luck with that! Varney and a team of computer experts could “explain” the process to Donald for hours and he still wouldn’t have a clue.

Varney told Trump:

“They get paid through Bitcoin.”

That led Trump down another mental rabbit hole as he blathered:

“That’s another beauty. The currency of this world should be the dollar. And I don’t think we should have all of the Bitcoins of the world out there. I think they should regulate them very, very high.”

Though it may be hard to believe, it’s quite obvious that Donald Trump has gotten significantly dumber since he left office. At this rate, by the end of the summer, he’ll be drooling on himself and demanding that someone bring him an abacus so he can attempt to count his fingers.

Here’s the video from Fox Business:
