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.
