Back in January, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker called Hillary Clinton the “most qualified person since George Washington” for the office of U.S. president. Booker’s correct, but only in the sense that George Washington didn’t know how to use a desktop computer either:

We’re shocked!

Lewis A. Lukens, a former State Department administrative official, said in a sworn deposition last week that after Mrs. Clinton became secretary of state in 2009, he had proposed accommodating her by setting up a desktop computer in her office that would not be connected to the department’s system. That would have allowed her to send and receive email on a personal account, Mr. Lukens said in the deposition, which he gave as part of a lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch, a conservative legal advocacy group. The group released a transcript of the deposition on Thursday.

And all that somehow culminated in it being necessary for Clinton to run all her emails through a homebrew server in her basement.
