Donald Trump and cyber-security: a lax attitude.

I'm reprinting this from a posting I did on Facebook...

  Perhaps a lax attitude because he doesn't know diddly about computers.
His field of expertise is bullshit. Hot, steaming, and from an alternate reality totally unfamiliar to those of us in the real world.

And I have terrible news for him if he thinks that all he has to do is appoint a skillful mouthpiece to browbeat the media into submission and then he can control everything we know about his government. I've said this before, but please let me repeat: everyone with a computer is both a consumer of news and a broadcaster of news. The social media like Facebook may well be our savior from the likes of a wannabe dictator like Trump, because we can spread the facts just as fast as he can spread the bullshit. So his plan for world domination may not get beyond the fantasy stage. Maybe he should have done his homework. This really isn't the 1930s when things were different.
