Trump administration not worried about Foreign Hacking, Hard to Prove, No need to Investigate...then claims "No Computer is Safe."

I just noticed an interesting inconsistency in Trump pronouncements about hacking.

He’s never taken Russian hacking seriously. He has never backed an investigation or cared whether a foreign country influenced our election. C/net:
Saying that accusing Russia is a "pretty serious charge," he added: "I know a lot about hacking. And hacking is a very hard thing to prove, so it could be somebody else."
That was followed up by eye opening statement suggesting Trump’s lack of computer knowledge and skills:
"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."
Yuge Contradiction: But if Russian hacking, or any hacking that directly interfers with a U.S. election, isn’t something we need to waste our time investigating, then what hell is Trump so worried about here...:
"You know, 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."

What the hell does Drumpf know about anything relating to computer security? He doesn't even attend intelligence briefings.

He's talking out his ass, as he does about anything that doesn't involve grifting or adultery.
