Rudy Giuliani ostensibly signed on as Donald Trump’s criminal defense attorney in an effort at shielding himself from his own criminal liability in the Trump-Russia election rigging scandal. The trouble: Giuliani, who has lost a marble or three, has failed in often unintentionally hilarious fashion. Now that Robert Mueller is closing in, Rudy has gone berserk on a level that we’re not even sure there are words for. In fact Rudy made up a few words.
Here’s the first thing Rudy Giuliani tweeted, which somehow ended up being the less unintelligible of the two: “Hysterical coverage of Cohen plea. It misses point that ,once again like Corsi leaked documents demonstrate, Mueller’s crew has no evidence of collusion. Along the way,however,he is keeping America safe from false statement makers or people with faulty memories or both.” Okay, we get it, the usual crap, though Rudy seems to be having a real problem with his space bar. Then came the comedy goldmine.
Here is Rudy’s second tweet in the thread: “Kimim ° has f.” Nope, that’s not some kind of malfunction on our part; he actually tweeted “Kimim” followed by whatever the rest of that might be. No one seems to have any idea what this could possibly mean. Kim Jong Un? Kim Kardashian? Did Rudy’s head actually explode while he was trying to type this?
Tonight, when the brilliant Kate McKinnon was portraying Rudy Giuliani on Saturday Night Live, she quipped that Rudy might be the first lawyer to enter an insanity plea for himself. When the real life Rudy is dishing out kindergarten-level legal advice and then following it up with “Kimim ° has f” – maybe Kate is onto something.
