“The trouble is, Alan” Dan said, “I don’t think he will. I think he’ll do anything he can to finagle his way out of this. He always seems to figure out a way to blame others for things he is responsible for having done.”
“He won’t get away with it this time,” Alan said. “Between the FBI, Congess, and the courts, he’ll get what he deserves. I guarantee it.”
“Wait,” Dan said. “The FBI? Congress? The courts? Who are you talking about?”
“I’m talking about Donald Trump,” Alan said, “Isn’t that who you’re talking about?”
Dan started to laugh. “No, Alan, I’m talking about my teenage son who downloaded that ransomware app to our family computer. He’s now trying to blame me for not having sufficient antivirus protections on the computer.”
