House Dems ‘erupted in laughter’ watching footage of Rudy Giuliani’s recent news appearances: report

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani’s recent disastrous media appearances have drawn laughs from lots of people — including Democrats in the House of Representatives.

Over the past week, Giuliani has made a string of calamitous appearances on cable news programs in which he has admitted to pressuring Ukraine’s government to help dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, spouted bizarre conspiracy theories involving George Soros, and at one point even repeatedly yelled, “Shut up!” at a Fox News guest who fact checked his statements.

Politico’s Jake Sherman reports that Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) on Wednesday morning showed his fellow House Democrats a “Seth Meyers sizzle reel of Giuliani’s recent cable appearances.”

The reel was apparently a hit, Sherman reports, as “the room erupted in laughter.”

Giuliani’s role in the widening Ukraine scandal has come under greater scrutiny after an explosive Washington Post report on Tuesday night revealed that the former New York mayor has been running a “shadow” operation aimed at getting Ukraine to help him dig up dirt on the president’s political opponents.

Trump supporters linked to Steve Bannon pushing ‘fantastical rumors’ to try to ‘pizzagate’ Joe Biden: report

Published

on

NBC News on Thursday published a blockbuster report on efforts to smear former Vice President Joe Biden.

"Some of the same people who pushed a false conspiracy theory about Hillary Clinton that first emerged in 2016 are now targeting Hunter Biden, Joe Biden's son, with similar falsehoods. Their online posts are garnering astronomical numbers of shares on social media," NBC News correspondents Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny reported Thursday.

"The fantastical rumors, which NBC News is declining to repeat verbatim, echo specific plot points central to 'pizzagate,' a viral disinformation campaign that predates QAnon but also falsely alleges a vast conspiracy of child abuse," NBC News explained. "There is an important difference, however. The pizzagate-style rumors in 2016 were largely confined to far-right message boards like 4chan and parts of Reddit. But the Hunter Biden iteration of the same conspiracy theory took off last weekend with the help of speculation from conservative TV hosts and members of Congress. Their theorizing can be traced back to a new website that has been promoted by President Donald Trump and his surrogates."
