We didn’t think it was possible for Rudy Giuliani to seem like any more of a disgrace, but here we are.
With the second round of public hearings investigating the January 6 riot at the US Capitol underway, the committee is presenting evidence that former president Donald Trump knew he’d lost the 2020 election to Joe Biden, and was at the center of a conspiracy to overturn the results.
Cheney painted an upsetting picture of Trump’s decision making process, explaining how an “apparently inebriated” Giuliani enabled the big lie:
“You will hear firsthand testimony that the president’s campaign advisers urged him to await the counting of votes and not to declare victory on election night.
“The president understood, even before the election, that many more Biden voters had voted by mail, because President Trump ignored the advice of his campaign experts and told his supporters only to vote in person.

“Donald Trump knew before the election that the counting of those mail-in ballots in several states would not begin until late in the day, and would not be complete for multiple days. This was expected, reported and widely known.
“You will also hear testimony that President Trump rejected the advice of his campaign experts on election night, and instead followed the course recommended by an apparently inebriated Rudy Giuliani to just claim that he won.”
Former Trump aide Jason Miller later testified that Giuliani was “definitely intoxicated.”
Last August, Giuliani told a local media outlet, ““I’m not an alcoholic. I’m a functioning! I probably function more effectively than 90 percent of the population!”
It sounds like bad political satire, and many took to Twitter to share their thoughts on “apparently inebriated” Giuliani:
Which 19th century Russian author would be best to pen this indelible scene of every adviser saying he's lost and a drunken Rudy Giuliani saying screw it go out there and say you won?

Don't take advice from an inebriated Rudy Giuliani.

Liz Cheney: “apparently inebriated Rudy Giuliani”
Jason Miller: “The mayor was definitely intoxicated”
Bill Stepien: “He was looking to talk to the president & it was suggested instead that he come talk to several of us”
This is the drunken clown Trump was taking advice from?

Rudy Giuliani was obviously the villain in every Scooby Doo episode ever. You'll never convince me otherwise. #americasmayor

Does a sober Rudy Giuliani even exist?

I wonder if inebriated Rudy Giuliani was responsible for booking that press conference at the “Four Seasons.”

Imagine how drunk Rudy Giuliani has to be for it to stand out to people who know him and interact with him on a daily basis.

Dumpf listens to whomever is saying what he wants to hear. If the speaker is drunk, that is irrelevant to the orange moron.
With Failure 45’s insanely frequent firings and hirings, it’s little wonder his staff was either alcoholic, zoned out on drugs, or one step away from commitment to a mental institution.
drumpf was mentioning fraud weeks before election day. He is not subtle. He is fleecing his minions that donate to prove fraud and hired whacko lawyers.
Trump, who lives for adoration and attention, would love to claim responsibility for his minions January 6th attack on the Nation’s Capital but he can’t without accepting the blame. It has to be killing Donald that he can’t brag about his power to incite an insurrection. Now he’s just sitting back collecting money from the morons who are assuming he’s going to run in 2024. And, because Donny hasn’t formally declared his intentions to run, he can use the money the fools are sending him anyway he wants without having to account for it.
how long til rudely ghouliani uses the ” i was drunk” non excuse? before or after merrick garland indicts the first seditious president in the history of the usa?
That explains a lot. The Four Seasons incident, his heavy sweating problem, his squash-like appearance, and everything else.
can you imagine getting out of the shower naked and looking in the mirror and YOURE RUDY GIULIANI! thats as bad as it can get.
To be fair, if you’re dealing with Trump, you would need to be wasted too….
