Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani was hilariously mocked on Friday after he tried to shoot down the theory that President Donald Trump conspired with Russia to undermine the 2016 presidential election by citing a Wikipedia entry.

In anticipation of the upcoming report by special counsel Robert Mueller, Giuliani once again tried to discredit unproven allegations leveled in the intelligence dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele about Trump’s relationship with Russia.

“Since 2009 Steele has not been to Russia, or visited any former Soviet states and in 2012, an Orbis informant quoted an FSB-agent describing him as an ‘enemy of Mother Russia,'” Giuliani wrote on Twitter. “The below excerpt from Wikipedia, if true, is another indication that the Steele Dossier about Russia is a phony work of political opposition research. Comey never bothered to check when Steele was last in Russia. So where was it written and who wrote it? We demand answers!”

Wikipedia entries are not considered reliable pieces of evidence, given that anyone has the power to edit Wikipedia entries at any time. Added to this, Giuliani himself admitted that he didn’t know whether this already flimsy evidence was actually true, even though he claimed it would completely destroy Steele’s credibility.

Giuliani’s shoddy legal analysis drew instant ridicule from his followers — check out some reactions below.

GOP lawmakers buried for meltdown over Biden appointee’s ‘mean tweets’ after years of Trump Twitter insults

On Tuesday morning, the panel on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" expressed both amusement and disgust with Republican lawmakers who are claiming one of President-elect Joe Biden's nominees may have a tough time being approved because she has a history of writing "mean tweets" about their actions and policies.

As host Joe Scarborough observed, those same lawmakers just spent four years either defending -- or pretending they were unaware -- of Donald Trump's habit of slurring and attacking his opponents or detractors on Twitter.

At issue are tweets that were written by Neera Tanden who is currently president of the Center for American Progress and has been nominated by the incoming president to head up the Office of Management and Budget.

Trump demands GOP Georgia governor ‘call off’ election in new Twitter outburst

Published

on

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump tweeted a new demand for Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) to "do something" and overturn the results of the election. Specifically, Trump wants him to "check signatures and count signed envelopes" and then "call off [the] election" because "It won't be needed" — presumably meaning call off the Georgia Senate runoffs because the "real" vote count would show Republicans won outright.

Do something @BrianKempGA. You allowed your state to be scammed. We must check signatures and count signed envelopes against ballots. Then call off election. It won’t be needed. We will all WIN! https://t.co/UiJrlyBGiK

On Monday, diGenova told right-wing talk show host Howie Carr that Krebs, who was fired by President Donald Trump for verifying that the 2020 election was secure, should be "drawn and quartered" and "taken out at dawn and shot."
