With the exception of Defense Secretary, the formula for choosing cabinet-level members in the Trump Administration is quite simple: find the most morally ambiguous and least qualified industry stooge and bam…there’s your guy.
Now while most of us in the reality-based community heaved an audible sigh of relief when snarling, lispy suck face Rudy Giuliani was passed over for Secretary of State, we didn’t realize that the Trump sycophant still yet had a chance to play a role in the Fourth Reich.
Trump tapping Giuliani to play a role in his incoming administration from hell surprised nobody. After all, Trump loves nothing more than to reward all ass-kissers. But seeing as cyber security was so vulnerable that it very well have tipped the election in Trump’s favor, nobody was jumping for joy upon discovering how laughably insecure Giuliani’s own website is.
Giuliani Security & Safety, the consulting firm that the former NYC mayor runs, is actually less about implementing actual cybersecurity and more about fallout in the event that something goes wrong. On their website, for example, something is horrifically wrong.

That’s right–the very person who seeks to navigate the extremely dangerous waters of cyber security can’t even maintain the security of his own site. That’s like if a chef couldn’t keep his kitchen from constantly setting on fire. So once again, bravo Lord Cheeto on ensuring that each and everyone American’s financial info is constantly under threat because you put cronyism before country.
But the fact that Giuliani’s website is completely compromised shouldn’t really shock anyone. After all, this was the same man who thought it wise to put the communications command center in the World Trade Center.
“Seven World Trade Center is a poor choice for the site of a crucial command center for the top leadership of the City of New York,” a panel of police experts, which was aided by the Secret Service, concluded in a confidential Police Department memorandum.
Smoke em’ if you got em’.
