The editorial meeting at Slate for this article must have gone something like this:
“OK folks we tried stripes, Russians, pussy grabbing, racism, etc. Nothing sticks. What do we do?”
“How about we say he is some sort of retrograde dumb ass and he does not use computers?”
“Perfect! Who is doing Art today? Molly?” 
“She is out sick doing microagression recovery therapy. We have the unpaid intern on call.”
“OK, email him and tell him to pick any Trump picture.”
“As soon as it is done, I’ll text you with the article.”
“Don’t bother. I am just gonna spend the rest of the day doing liquid hops and malts at Rosie’s bar. Go ahead and publish it when you are done.”
