If ridiculous passed ridiculous well into ludicrous land, well, that wouldn’t even come close to where Donald Trump is living these days.

In yet the latest of his incredibly stupid ideas about what we should do as Team America, he has suggested that we need to follow up closing our borders to Muslims by “closing up the Internet in some way,” to somehow “fight Islamic State terrorists in cyberspace,” according to The Daily Dot.

Here’s the best part — he wants to get those Internet folks, like Bill Gates, right on that.

In the Twitter video below, you’ll hear him ramble on: “We’re losing a lot of people because of the Internet,” Trump said. “And we have to do something. We have to go see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what’s happening. We have to talk to them, maybe in certain areas, closing that Internet up in some way.”

Trump has been pretty good at poking the bears in Tech Land — Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos tweeted earlier this week that he’d love to send Trump to space.

And let us not forget T-Mobile’s John Legere’s epic Twitter battles with Trump.

Something tells us that Gates is a little too busy to take on your Internet project, Donald.
