President Donald J. Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani told HuffPost reporter Ryan J. Reilly to “get lost” Saturday. The comment came after Reilly asked Giuliani if he wanted the president to preemptively pardon him before he leaves office.
“Just wanted to see if you’d made a deal with him or something,” Reilly wrote.

It’s been a dramatic day for Giuliani. Pennsylvania Judge Matthew Brann dismissed the Trump campaign’s claim that sought to overturn votes in the state that might lead to an election win for the current president.
“This claim, like Frankenstein’s Monster, has been haphazardly stitched together from two distinct theories in an attempt to avoid controlling precedent,” Brann wrote.

What can the left expect from a Biden-Harris administration? Pretty much nothing
On Nov. 7 of this year, the United States let out a collective roar that rippled across the nation, resonating the crowds of blue-clad people swelling the streets and the squares, and causing buildings to tremble as those inside broke out the champagne and began to dance. The celebrations lasted long into the night. For those few precious moments, it felt as though a curse had been lifted, a nightmare abated. Trumpism had ground itself to a resounding and decisive halt and it seemed that political space on the left, and on the center ground, had finally begun to open again.
GOP ripped for ‘bad faith and cynicism’ after Trump’s effort to overturn the election loses — again — in court
President Donald Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election failed again in court on Saturday.
"The PA Supreme Court dismisses the case brought by U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly that sought to overturn last year’s law creating no-excuse mail voting and to throw out those mail ballots cast in this election," Philadelphia Inquirer correspondent Jonathan Lai reported Saturday. "This is the case the Commonwealth Court had earlier blocked certification in."
Trump had been tweeting about the case after returning from his third day in a row of golf.
Georgia Senate runoff descends into a food fight on Small Business Saturday
One of the two U.S. Senate runoff elections in Georgia turned into a figurative food fight on Saturday.
The eyes of the nation are on the Peach State as it holds two January runoff elections that will decide control of the U.S. Senate. Following the November elections, Republicans have 50 Senate seats to 48 for Democrats. However, if Democrats win both races, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be able to cast the tie-breaking vote.
Democrat Jon Ossoff, who is challenging Sen. David Perdue (R-GA), spent small business Saturday on the campaign trail and visited a vegan burger joint, CNN's DJ Judd reported.
