Fantastic! They should also have their own greeting and wear brown shirts. 

“Offical” even sounds like faecal phonetically which is pretty appropriate. 😂

Someone out there has to make a Hitler/Germany spoof of this.

Poor Rudy.

Suspended from practicing law, on the brink of bankruptcy, a laughing stock, the biggest target in Borat 2, and now hung out to dry by the man he worked so hard for.

His kids must be proud.

Well one of them at least. His daughter's awesome. :lol:

I will be forever grateful to him for the sublime moment of comedy that was Four Seasons Total Landscaping.

Agreed.

I don’t think there has ever been a funnier moment in US Presidential politics than that press conference.  It was a calamity of unforced errors. There were moments I literally had tears when thinking about the moment they realized they couldn’t book the four seasons hotel and instead went with, what they thought, the next best thing: a run down landscaping business situated between a dildo shop and a crematorium.

It was glorious.

It so elegantly epitomised the Trump presidency in a single event - make an absolutely howling error, and then rather than admit it and try to put it right, double down and claim that "Of course we wanted to hold a press conference in a hitherto unheard-of garden centre rather than a four star hotel".

As @Coma16 says, the best political satirists couldn't have written it. I also remember being in tears laughing.

I don’t often defend Trump, but in the case of hanging Rudy out to dry, I’m all for it.

If your Trump, do you help out the guy who  turned your re-election effort into a complete dumpster fire (moreso than it already was)?   The guy who farted during a Michigan election hearing? Who was such a hot sweaty mess that his hair die was all people could pay attention to.  

Rudy almost made you feel sorry for Trump.

Almost.

He was the perfect person to lead Trump’s legal efforts to overturn the election and I can think of nothing more fitting than for his past efforts to absolutely break him, professionally and financially.

 Sorry, I don't think Giuliani nor anyone else was the perfect person to overturn the election. There was nothing there and both Trump and Giuliani knew it from day one! That's why all that was left to do was this embarrassing circus. Both of them were nothing but two arrogant shameless sour losers. I don't feel sorry for Giuliani in the least. All they wanted was to steal the election. And turn America into some kind of Nazi Germany. The moment Trump called Georgia's election officials asking to find him 10k votes. It was crystal clear what real intentions they had. I want to see both of them rot in jail

The fact that the election was called for Biden at that exact time too and they heard about it while on stage was just the icing on the cake. :lol:

When I said Rudy was the perfect person to overturn the election, it was meant in the sense that his acumen matched the absurdity of the endeavour.  He's neither competent neither principled.  His loyalties to Trump and his complete lack of self-awareness were the kind of attributes you want for someone attempting to accomplish something so corrupt, impossible, and stupid.  Better Rudy than someone mildly competent.

The thing I can't fathom is that he's the guy who literally brought down the mob. I mean he can't always have been such a fucking muppet.

Yeah, it’s really strange.

Maybe old man disease got him.

Maybe his need for fame and being in the national spotlight blinded him.

Or it could be that most of the work to go after the mob was done by his underlings and Rudy took the credit.

There’s a lot of old white dudes who took a turn for the dark side as they got older. Van Morrison, Clapton, David Mamet…

That's why I'm so disappointed. He clean New York, not only from the mob. But all crime rates went down huge. New York became a different town. On top of that, he was one the 9/11 heroes. He became Amarica's Mayor. What the hell happened to him?

:cry::no:
