Former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani drew howls of laughter after he issued a dire warning on Wednesday night about the dangers of spreading misinformation on social media.
Writing on Twitter, Giuliani argued that social media companies were allowing the spread of misinformation at an unprecedented scale, thus damaging the ability of the public to stay informed.
"Misinformation has become a daily occurrence on social media platforms," Giuliani wrote. "If continued unaddressed, it will eventually lead to Jefferson's worst nightmare of a poorly informed citizenry, which he saw as the greatest danger to democracy."
Giuliani, of course, was one of the biggest spreaders of misinformation about the 2020 presidential election, and his false claims about Dominion Voting Systems have now opened him up to a massive $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit.
Giuliani's followers were quick to remind him of his own efforts to spread misinformation using social media -- check out some replies below.
Black hair sweat has become a daily occurrence on Rudy's head. If left unaddressed, it will eventually lead to Jefferson's worst nightmare of 24/7 wig wearing, which he saw as the greatest threat to fondling himself in front of underage women in hotel rooms.

Speaking of disinformation, how's the Dominion defamation suit going?

Imma guess: “dire consequences of misinformation" are holding press conferences next door to dildo stores, hair dye melting your face, getting caught in Borat with a minor, and causing violent insurrection at the nation's Capitol. Did I get them all?? Oh, and farting in court💩

This is rich coming from Trump's very own Minister of Misinformation.

Uh, excuse me, but you are the chief spreader of misinformation. That is why you are being sued for $1.3 billion. Tell it to the court!

Orwell considered this as a subplot in 1984 but concluded it was both too stupid and too contrived.
