The security company's website is currently down.

From what I've read the story is a bit misleading. It's allegedly more of a consolation for Giuliani since Trump didn't want him as a cabinet pick.

Also, at least as of earlier this morning, whoever runs DNS for that site's domain removed the A record and it was still accessible via IP. Not sure what they hoped to accomplish, but if they were going to try security through obscurity then that is quite laughable.
Still, it's obvious Trump is giving positions of power or government money to people who helped him in his campaign.  I mean, he appointed Ben Carson to Housing and Development.  There are people far better qualified for that post yet Trump picked someone who dropped out and supported him.

Coincidence?

Probably as much as this:

In other news, Occupy Democrats support Democrats and not Republicans; are hypocritical.

You make it sound like favoritism  is not common in cabinet appointments.
You don't get races of anything ... accept people.

It's not hypocrisy, since they most likely sincerely believe their 2015 statement; it's a complete lack of self-awareness.

No idea.  I'd have to look back at past administrations.

wow looky golly gee it's almost like words have real-life impacts no matter how much you excuse them as being joking/non-serious

Trump is making creeps and bigots feel like it's okay to act on their creepiness and bigotry in public now. I mean, I guess that's not really news at this point, but it's still frustrating and disappointing as fuck.

That made me laugh cause his lawyer was actually trying to play it off as a joke.

"Yeah, sure, he reached up and grabbed her by the pussy but it was just a joke."

Now, however, I want to cry since he's right: this is a new world and you don't have to be politically correct anymore.  You CAN grab them by the pussy and a near majority of people in America will support you.

Grabbing someone by the pussy without consent is not "politically incorrect", it is sexual assault. To use political correctness to justify your criminal behavior is pathetic.
You don't get races of anything ... accept people.

Depends on who you ask.
To some, politically correct means having to restrain your words and actions to keep from offending/assaulting others who disagree with you.

I still don't see how that would classify as political incorrect. It's against the law, it doesn't matter if you agree/disagree.

Offending sure. Assault is illegal. Restraining yourself from assaulting people is being civil, not politically correct.

I'm not disagreeing with either of you, but clearly some people think that IS what politically correct means and what was done was not assault.

Fake news story aside (the article heavily messes with the chronology and causality of events compared to the actual allegations made against the guy), what makes you think that Trump can be blamed for the actions of a man who's both older than Trump and who was known to "misbehave" before?

Fake news story aside (the article heavily messes with the chronology and causality of events compared to the actual allegations made against the guy)

The chronology and causality seems pretty clear to me.

Quote
In December of 2016, Keyserling engaged in a “political argument” with a woman and allegedly declared, “I love this new world. I no longer have to be politically correct.”

Quote
She told him that if he was "proud of that I can't help you," after which he called her a lazy, bloodsucking union employee, the warrant said.

She uttered "(expletive deleted) you" and walked into her office, the warrant said. She said he followed her into the office and said he wanted to talk with her co-worker, the warrant said.

When that co-worker walked in, she said she didn't have time to speak with him and left the office, the warrant said. The 57-year-old woman decided to leave with her co-worker because she didn't want to be alone with him, the warrant said.

Quote
As the woman turned to walk away, Keyserling reportedly reach from behind and placed his hand between her legs and pinched on or near her genital area.

Quote
Greenwich Representative Town Meeting board member Christopher von Keyserling was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and was released on $2,500 bond. He’s due to appear in court on January 25.

And the kicker:

Quote
Police said video footage from a surveillance camera on the day of the incident is consistent with the sequence of events described by the complainant.

And here's the original local news story from Westport, Connecticut: http://westport.dailyvoice.com/police-fire/cops-greenwich-republican-insulted-town-worker-then-pinched-her-groin/696124/

Here's another one from Greenwich, Connecticut: http://www.greenwichtime.com/policereports/article/Von-Keyserling-RTM-member-arrested-on-criminal-10852811.php

Can you tell us why you jumped to the conclusion this was a fake news story? What issues do you have with the chronology or causality?

Because Trump did grab women by the pussy (or at least claimed to in one setting) and a near majority of people in America does support him.
