White House cybersecurity adviser Giuliani took his iPhone to the Genius Bar when he forgot his password

In 2017, a month after Trump named Rudy Giuliani to be his cybersecurity officer, Giuliani locked himself out of his iPhone. So he waited in line at a San Francisco Apple store to get the Genius Bar to unlock his phone. Last night when NBC broke the news of this, Giuliani idiotically compared what he did to the FBI asking Apple to unlock the phone of the San Bernardino mass shooter (which they refused to do). Also, given the sensitive information likely on Giuliani's phone, it's rather surprising that he'd hand it over to a random employee at a retail store. Or maybe it isn't surprising at all. Wonder if Giuliani tried "PASSWORD"? From NBC News:

Giuliani’s handling of the situation calls into question his understanding of basic security measures and raises the prospect that, as someone in the president's inner circle, his electronic devices are especially vulnerable to hackers, two former FBI cyber experts told NBC News.

“There’s no way he should be going to a commercial location to ask for that assistance,” said E.J. Hilbert, a former FBI agent for cybercrime and terrorism.

Michael Anaya, a former FBI supervisory special agent who led a cyber squad for four years, reacted with astonishment when told about Giuliani’s Apple store visit.

“That’s crazy,” he said.

Commercial Finance Association pays Rudy Giuliani to offer his thoughts on Mexicans in the kitchens of New York

The Commercial Finance Association, a financial services group, hired former New York mayor and noted windbag Rudy Giuliani to do a speech for them. During this speech, Giuliani made racist remarks about "Mexicans in the kitchens at the Waldorf." Afterward, the Commercial Finance Association issued a groveling apology.

The association's CEO wrote in an email sent to attendees that Giuliani "presented unscripted personal opinions which were independent of CFA’s political position or core values."

“While we, the event organizers, made every attempt to direct Mr. Giuliani’s remarks ahead of time to focus on leadership, for which he is renowned and has authored a book, there is always the possibility of such a surprise at a live event,” Bob Trojan wrote.

It's a small data point, but a serious one. They didn't believe that he was really a racist sack of shit, because TV, the internet, the papers—none of that's real, is it? So Wall Street paid him a fantastic amount of money to rant about Mexicans, thereby buying and eating the sack of shit. Read the rest
