Trump Controlling Cyber Security = Jeffrey Dahmer Making Dinner

By Tiffany Rodgers

Trump controlling our cyber security is like asking Jeffrey Dahmer to make dinner. Just picture that three-course meal…yummy. Does anyone else see the irony in this new heightened cyber security? Yet, here we are.

Trump’s statement says, “The elevation of United States Cyber Command demonstrates our increased resolve against cyberspace threats and will help reassure our allies and partners and deter our adversaries.” Are we sure we all have the same adversaries list? As of late, we can’t be so sure about Trump’s list.

Trump goes on to say, “Through United States Cyber Command, we will tackle our cyberspace challenges in coordination with like-minded allies and partners as we strive to respond rapidly to evolving cyberspace security threats and opportunities globally”. The same question applies here. Who does Trump have on his “like-minded allies” list? Bet his list isn’t the same as most Americans.

Cyber security is not a bad idea. It is a difficult beast to tame. It is huge and complex. Especially, as we continue to move towards a more technological society.

If this had been in place during the election, perhaps we wouldn’t have the ignoramus-in-chief we currently have right now. Everyone knows Russia hacked our election, and Trump would be no more than a distant pain in the bum without them. We just have to wait until the FBI investigation is over, or for Congress to develop a spine, and it will be bye bye Donnie John (Thanks to Tina Fey for giving him a stellar new nickname – too bad for him it is his real name). Donnie John doesn’t sound very presidential, now does it?

<Insert collective laughing at him>

Sarcasm, satire, and snark just seem to spew from my being. I may not be everyone's cup of tea, but who can refuse coffee? ?
