Former New York City Mayor Rudi Giuliani reached out to practitioners of witchcraft Wednesday night, but did not offer an apology.
Giuliani, in his role as defense attorney for President Donald Trump, has repeatedly accused special counsel Robert Mueller for running a “witch hunt” — despite convictions of Trump’s campaign chairman, deputy campaign chairman, longtime lawyer and National Security Advisor.
After 11 p.m. in New York, Giuliani worried that his cable TV spin may have offended witches.
“According to CNN witches favor Democrats and they are offended that the Meuller [sic] investigation is described as a Witch Hunt,” Giuliani claimed.
“There is no reason for the witches to be offended because Witch Hunt derives from, for example, the Salem Witch Hunts where people were executed unjustly,” he added.
The internet quickly ridiculed Giuliani’s latest bizarre public statement. Here is a selection of some of the funniest:
Oh, you mean like chanting "LOCK HER UP!' about somebody who has never been charged with or convicted of a crime? Like THAT unjustly??

One should question a lawyer’s ability representing a client who is a subject of the Mueller Investigation and that lawyer can’t even spell Mueller correctly.ADVERTISEMENT

I'm all for humor but a federal judge, just last month, raised the question of whether or not Trump's National Security Adviser committed treason against our country. It's not…. funny https://t.co/N2xYaKxnvW

You are Trump’s second finest choice for a lawyer, after Cohen.

They were called the Salem Witch Trials, not hunts.
And witch hunts are associated with investigations that are played more for publicity than results. But Mueller’s not chasing publicity and he’s getting results. The ones chasing publicity are you and _your_ peeps.

One fateful night, no one knows for sure which, all these guys got an incurable degenerative neurological disease from the same Mar-A-Lago carving station. Researchers call it Facebook Brain. They're all living to 95. https://t.co/0boG4jGo0X
