Once again, Rudy goes unhinged.

How much judgment does it take to avoid stupid opportunities to humiliate yourself (and your client)?

Imagine you’re Rudy Giuliani. You’re prattling along, giving a press conference, and you spot a way to reference one of your favorite movies to make your legal case … BAM! Twitter rips you to shreds.

That was the crux of a truly bizarre press conference that President Trump’s personal attorney gave on Thursday, which CNN, MSNBC and Fox Business anchor Neil Cavuto declined to air. Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, was arguing that Trump campaign reps were not allowed close enough to properly observe ballot counting in Pennsylvania for the presidential election, which Trump and his team have refused to concede despite the Associated Press and other major news outlets naming Democratic challenger Joe Biden the winner two weeks ago.

Giuliani decided to re-enact a scene from the 1992 comedy “My Cousin Vinny,” which starred Joe Pesci (no relation to the author of this article) and won Marisa Tomei an Oscar, to call out just how far away the Trump representatives were from the ballot counters.

...

And the New York Daily News, one of Giuliani’s hometown newspapers, ran an op-ed by one of Giuliani’s former speechwriters on Thursday that called him “pathetic” and lamented his dive “into the deep end of a fetid pool of manufactured election conspiracy theories.”

The presser got even stranger as a black stream of what appeared to be hair dye began rolling down Giuliani’s face as he sweat at the podium...

I have never seen anyone sweat like Rudy...on and off the mike. He couldn't wipe quickly enough.

The women were certainly convinced they had a winning game, but I can't see how. Those people must spend all night on the phone coming up with the most bizarre conspiracy theories. And, of course, they managed to get George Soros into them. He should sue them for slander.
