Trump Claims He Knows Technology Better Than Anyone: After opponents called it an old-fashioned idea, Donald Trump defended construction of a wall along the US-Mexico border in a bizarre series of tweets in which he compared it to "the wheel" and boasted that he “understood technology better than anyone.”
Wow, this guy must be awfully smart then! I mean, first he’s withdrawing from Syria and Afghanistan because he “knows more than the Generals” - and now, he “understands technology better than anyone?” Who knew? Now I don’t know what his definition of “understands” is when it applies to technology, but I’d be willing to bet that this is a guy who’d be at a total loss trying to operate a kitchen toaster.
Now I suppose my question to this highly technical, stable genius and his loyal followers who claim to believe that this wall is the best solution to curb immigration from Mexico is - do you even realize that Mexico has airports just like we do - with direct flights into the United States? And, not to get technical, but I'm pretty sure that these planes fly much higher than that 100-foot wall you want to spend $75 billion to build.
Now not to be critical, but I think it’s fair to ask why a technical genius of his stature doesn’t even have a clue about how to send the most basic e-mail or why his staunchest supporters still think of his Mar-a-Lago swimming pools as "see-ment ponds?” Frankly, I believe my cat has a better understanding of technology than he does. On the other hand, my cat isn’t being blackmailed by Russian Intelligence Services - so there’s that.
