Giuliani's hilarious self-own


This would be sidesplittingly funny even if it didn't come from a political bete noire like Rudy.

ETA: The random detail of the basketball video is everything.

While Rudy's behavior is, typically, humorous, his desire to follow his fearless leader into incomprehensive texting is, by itself, not really an Elections discussion.

Off to The BBQ Pit.

He has some money, why doesn't he hire a publicist to vet his utterances?

For the same reason Trump doesn't.

Vanity.

Hey now, are we sure this is Rudy? The man is a cybersecurity expert (or not):

Rudy Giuliani, a Trump cybersecurity adviser, doesn’t understand the internet

Quote:
Welcome back to the latest edition of politicians don’t get technology! Our latest guest is Rudy Giuliani, former New York mayor and current cybersecurity adviser to President Trump.

Rudy Giuliani doesn’t understand Twitter or the internet.

It’s embarrassing enough that Giuliani inadvertently tweeted a link to a website criticizing Trump, but now he is doubling down on cyberstupidity by claiming that “Twitter allowed someone to invade my text with a disgusting anti-President message.”

Ignorant as to what had happened, he latched on to apparent anti-Republican bias within Twitter, a theme that Trump and other Republicans have pushed despite no evidence.

“Don’t tell me they are not committed cardcarrying anti-Trumpers,” added Giuliani, who — we repeat — is a cybersecurity adviser to the White House .
Rudy is learning well from Trump--it's always someone else's fault.

So after posting a garbled message complaining about Pelosi's garbled speech, he then posts a correction which includes the quote “People who live in a glass house shouldn’t throw stones.” And is apparently completely oblivious to its applicability to what he had just done.

Self awareness is not one of Rudy's strong suits.

Because a publicist of even average competence would insist that they cannot post 95% of it because it makes them sound like fucking morons.

He was a late-night pitchman for Lifelock.

You know, the same company that got fined 100 million by the FTC for not securing its customer's sensitive data.

Obviously, this gig qualified Rudy for his current position as Trump's cyber security adviser.

Rudy feels more comfortable and “together” when he’s dressed as a lady. He should just own it.

Can someone get Kanye to interrupt a press conference? And get him to grab the mic and yell "ivesssapology, but the Third Reich did this stuff better!"

LOL, I enjoyed it. (This is why I want "likes".)

Seriously, though: how the actual fuck did a basketball video get into this tweet? That goes beyond "garbled".

ETA: Even Rudy's corrected tweet still messes up the quote marks.

He thought the tweet would be a slam-dunk.
