Rudy Giuliani resorted to acting out a scene from the movie “My Cousin Vinny” on Thursday in an effort to convince reporters that President-elect Joe Biden had illegally won the election.
“Did you all watch ‘My Cousin Vinny?'” Giuliani asked a group of reporters in Washington, D.C. “You know, the movie? It’s one of my favorite law movies because he comes from Brooklyn. And the nice lady who said she saw [the crime] and then he says to her, ‘How many fingers do I got up?’ and she says, ‘Three.'”
“Well, she was too far away,” he continued, comparing the witness in the movie to Republican poll watchers. “These people were further away than ‘My Cousin Vinny’ was from the witness. They couldn’t see a thing.”
Watch the video clip below from Fox News and read some of the responses from Twitter.
Point: My Cousin Vinny is a FANTASTIC movie and frequently used in law schools because it is the most accurate depiction of voir dire Hollywood has ever managed.
Counterpoint: It has nothing to do with election fraud, no place in this discourse, and Rudy Giuliani is a lunatic.

Rudy Giuliani is quoting “My Cousin Vinny” to prove widespread ballot fraud. That’s all you need to know about this press conference. Still no smoking gun.

Rudy Giuliani drops a My Cousin Vinny reference to win over the teens. Goes on to argue that, much like Kriss Kross, these Pennsylvania voter fraud claims should make you jump, jump.

So apparently Rudy Giuliani is impersonating My Cousin Vinny and that’s it, I can’t take any more, I think my time on earth must come to an end. If you need me I’ll be constructing a moon base to live alone among the stars.

Rudy Giuliani just tried to use a scene from my cousin Vinny as evidence. If we are going to use movies as evidence, I recommend we start with the new Borat.

Here’s the best way to pry Trump from the White House — according to a professional hostage negotiator
President Donald Trump is still refusing the concede that he lost the 2020 presidential election, which has prompted some speculation over whether the Secret Service will be forced to drag him out of the White House on January 20th.
In an interview with the Boston Globe, retired NYPD homicide detective Alfred S. Titus, Jr. said that the best way to coax Trump to leave would be to remind him of how great his life was before he decided to run for office back in 2015.
Trump-loving congressman turns himself into a laughingstock with a few deranged tweets
The first thing you should know about Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona is that he shouldn’t be confused with the famous movie villain from “Ghostbusters.”
One of them has been described as a “sadistic, shapeshifting, apocalyptic, cosmic entity.”
The other spelled his name differently and wasn’t a registered Republican.
Paul Gosar is no relation of Gozer the Gozerian. But he’s doing his best movie-villain schtick as part of a cottage industry of loyal subjects vying to carry on the manic mantle of Trumpism.
Trump turned to Giuliani after his top attorneys refused to get involved in his post-election legal battle: report
A new report from ABC News documents how President Donald Trump decided to put Rudy Giuliani in charge of his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election after his own top lawyers told him he was unlikely to prevail.
According to ABC News' sources, White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, as well as longtime attorney Jay Sekulow, both gave Trump pessimistic assessments of his chances of prevailing in court with lawsuits to throw out hundreds of thousands of votes in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
