Trump Caught In Bizarre Rant Against Computers, Again Defends Russians On Hacking Claims

Donald Trump made an incoherent and strange attack on computers during a brief appearance in front of the media on Wednesday. While still avoiding the traditional post-election press conference that every election winner has made in the last few decades, Trump briefly spoke to the press at his Florida property Mar-A-Lago.

He was asked about congressional plans to impose sanctions on Russia for financing and soliciting hackers to break into computers of Democratic Party officials and in response Trump made a rant about… computers.

Trump said, “I think we think we ought to get on with our lives. I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly. The whole age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what’s going on. We have speed, we have a lot of other things, but I’m not sure we have the kind of security that we need. But I have not spoken with the senators, and I certainly will be over a period of time.”

Trump has repeatedly downplayed the hacking of the 2016 election by Russia, despite reports that Vladimir Putin and the Russian government sought to swing the election in his favor by leaking the stolen Democratic Party emails to WikiLeaks.

Previous reports have indicated that Trump is wary of computers and does not regularly use one, preferring to have aides print out articles from the internet for him to read and annotate. He has sent those handwritten notes on online articles to reporters he has had disagreements with in the past.

      Yeh it should be, shouldn’t it? In my opinion, i bet he has early stages of dementia or else he has bi-polar. I just was thinking that the other day but then, i don’t know if he’s been this way all his life so the dementia one might not be but bi-polar def fits.

          It is laughable but so freakin’ scary b/c of him holding the highest office now. I think that he just wants to be able to say, “I achieved the highest office & now i have achieved it all”~~money & power. Guess we just now sit back & see what happens. Hang on it’s gonna be a BUMPY a** ride. Happy New Year Eiisabeth!
