Donald Trump's latest weighing in on the issues surrounds, interestingly enough, cybersecurity! You know, that thing that kinda-sorta may have had a lot to do with how he won the election by losing the popular vote by turning out an unprecedented percentage of angry people who wanted to put him in power?

Well, Donald Trump says he knows a great deal about cybersecurity threats. He has said that it is so complicated that there is no possible way of knowing if Russia hacked into our election system or not.

And, now, he has suggested a solution for our cybersecurity needs. Especially one when it comes to keeping important messages private.

Donald said, and I quote:

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. I don't care what they say, no computer is safe. I have a boy who's ten 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.

Yup! That's his solution. No computer is safe. Spies and hackers are hiding everywhere. If you want a message to be entirely private, entrust it in only one single handwritten copy to a courier!

This makes sense in another, terrifying way: reports have shown that Donald Trump does not use email, nor does he carry a cell phone. Does that concern you? It kind of concerns me!

Apparently, part of Making America Great Again will be the re-launch of the Pony Express. With President Trump's proclamations going out on horseback across the great plains to their intended recipients.

Also, good on Donald for finding another opportunity to talk about Barron's computer skills. Perhaps he is working up towards trying to get him a job in the CIA or something? Time will tell.

Will Donald Trump actually enact this physical courier system once he's finally in the White House in a mere few weeks?

I guess we'll see! May God have mercy on every last one of us. Good night, and good luck.
