Donald Trump defense attorney and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has once again found himself in a scandal revealed through his difficulties navigating technology.

“Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani was caught mocking Asians and even pantomiming a bow in video footage his team accidentally posted to his YouTube page on Wednesday. The remarks came well after Giuliani had finished interviewing former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer for his podcast, Common Sense. The taping appeared to take place on Tuesday. But a version of it was also posted as a video online on Wednesday. And in that video, the editors not only kept rolling but posted that excess footage along with the Spicer interview,” The Daily Beast reported Wednesday.

“For several minutes on the extended YouTube version, the screen was black and silent. Then Spicer appeared briefly to sign out, leaving Giuliani at his desk speaking with individuals off-screen, apparently unaware the camera was still recording,” The Beast explained.

Giuliani also pantomimed bowing.

“This isn’t the first time that the former New York mayor has had an embarrassing run-in with modern technology, resulting in Giuliani revealing more than he wanted. Late last year, the Trump attorney mistakenly butt-dialed an NBC reporter late at night,” The Beast noted. “When the reporter woke up, he discovered a three-minute-long voice message from Giuliani, featuring the ex-mayor discussing overseas dealings and his need for cash. That butt-dial came 18 days after another one in which a different reporter also let Giuliani’s call go to voicemail, only to later discover Giuliani complaining to another person about becoming the target of public attacks because he slammed a powerful Democrat.”

Team Trump deserves to be ‘sanctioned’ for horribly flawed Pennsylvania lawsuit: conservative attorney

Published

on

In one of their lawsuits filed in Pennsylvania, attorneys for President Donald Trump's reelection campaign argued that millions of votes should be thrown out — a move that Trump critics slammed as a shamelessly authoritarian attempt to overturn the will of Pennsylvania voters. But on Tuesday, November 24, the Electoral College results in Pennsylvania were officially certified — giving President-elect Joe Biden the Keystone State's 20 electoral votes. Conservative law professor Kim Wehle, in an article published by The Bulwark, slams the Trump campaign's efforts to overturn the election results in Pennsylvania as a total embarrassment and explains why, from a legal standpoint, they were so badly flawed.

Mystery of the ‘shy’ Trump voter may be solved by looking at this key demographic

Published

on

President-elect Joe Biden defeated President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election -- but it wasn't the massive blowout projected by most public opinion polls.

In fact, opinion polls underestimated Trump's final support by between three and four points, just as they did in 2016 when he upset Democratic rival Hillary Clinton to win the presidency.

So who are these so-called "shy" Trump voters that pollsters keep missing?

American Enterprise Institute polling researcher Daniel Cox writes at FiveThirtyEight that Trump had unusually strong support from men who feel disconnected and alienated from society, and are thus far less likely to participate in opinion polls.

Was the secret meeting between Netanyahu, Pompeo and Prince Mohammed a last minute war plot?
