There's a story on RealClearPolitics.com that says Clinton was such a technophobe she preferred not to use desktop computers and did almost all her emails on blackberries.     It goes on to say that her staff had to help her do very basic things such as setting up an email user name and password.     That she would get a new blackberry phone, not understand it, and go back to using her old phone etc.     That she never used an Iphone because she was addicted to using the blackberry phone so commonly used by US congress reps.

 

I happen to think that this story is a carefully crafted bit of deception by the Democrat campaign to say that Clinton was computer illiterate and did not know or care about the devices she used.     She and Bill probably had desktop computers that would have done email from the early nineties onwards.     I just can't believe that a person with her brains would not have developed enough basic skills to have become a competent user of email in that time.     And for years the only way of sending emails was using a PC or a Mac!    And up to this day it is still easier and more comfortable to use a desktop/laptop etc to write a long email than any smart phone.    Hillary never using a computer on a regular basis?    What a crock.

 

'Lyin Hillary' there's some truth in that slogan of Trump's!

Not anymore!    He would not give me a complementary 'Hillary for Prison 2016' yard sign.    Bugger.

Hillary is a 100% geek. What potential POTUS would build their own "secure" email server and host it at home.

 

That takes real talent... doesn't it?

I recall seeing a picture of his BB. It was armor plated and mega secure and looked like something the courier van drivers use. No wonder he hated the bloody thing.
