When it comes to Donald Trump, it s getting harder by the day to be surprised.

His latest mishap comes from a cabinet appointment, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.

It s Giuliani, now, that s tasked with protecting our nation from the best and most sophisticated cyber criminals both foreign and domestic.

CNBC reported that Dan Tentler, founder of Phobos Group was able to pull up read me files — while using a tethered mobile device, on an airplane — removed by even the most novice of website administrators.

Those files give you all the information you need to do nefarious things.

Or there s this screenshot, showing Giuliani s expired SSL certificate and failure to force users to a secure https connection.
