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."
