Rudy Giuliani mocked for historically illiterate tweet: 'You quoted a typing drill!'

Rudy Giuliani misquoted Patrick Henry and compared himself to Paul Revere to stump for the re-election of his client President Donald Trump.

The president's attorney initially misattributed the quote to Revere, but deleted that post and then misattributed a century-old statement used as a typing exercise to Henry.

“Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their party," Giuliani tweeted.

The phrase was devised by typing instructor Charles E. Weller in 1918 as an exercise for his students, but has been misattributed to Henry on conservative blogs and social media for years.

"Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their Nation, reject socialism and censorship, and preserve our American way of life!" Giuliani added, and included an illustration of himself dressed as Revere, who he initially cited as the quote's author.

Other social media users mocked the former New York City mayor, and asked why he spent Election Day giving an interview with the Kremlin-backed RT network.
