This is the second time I have written this today, but it doesn’t make it any less true: we truly live in the dumbest of times. Everyone is rightfully preoccupied with the bizarre decision by the Republicans to release James Comey’s memos which make President Trump look anything but innocent, but let’s not forget about the other utterly insane news to come out of yesterday: Rudy Giuliani is back baby!
The former New York City Mayor and forever 9/11 exploiter announced that he is joining Trump’s legal team as a volunteer in order to help bring the Mueller probe to a conclusion. The idea of unhinged wingnut Rudy Giuliani negotiating with forever lawman and former Marine, Robert Mueller, is hilarious enough, but this situation is even more absurd in light of an old video that resurfaced in the wake of these reports yesterday. Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to introduce you to Rudy Giuliani in drag.
This clip has the full Trump experience. Sexual harassment, awkward bravado, bad, but self-amused acting. Everything. It’s the perfect distillation of the crazy experience that is Trumplandia, and it is everyone’s solemn duty to make sure that this gets shared as widely as possible. This is our president and one of his most trusted advisers. We did this, America. It’s up to us to tattoo this cursed image onto our brains in order to ensure that we never make the same titanic mistake ever again.
