Is This The World You Want To Live In?

The Newsmax vision.

Old White Guy Rudy Giuliani, speaking on conservative news channel Newsmax, shown in a thumbnail between to much younger White women with long blond hair.
These women kept a straight face while Rudy Giuliani said he had the goods. “It’s gobbledygook supported by thousands of pieces of evidence, none of which has been revealed yet. I happen to have it in my bedroom.”

With Coronavirus in the rearview, He Who Shall Not Be Less Tangerine needs a new enemy. Or in this case, a new old enemy.

Did you guess Hillary Clinton?

In an attempt to deflect attention away from the business of being dropped by his accounting firm and the Jan. 6 subpoenas, former POTUS put out a statement claiming the attacks against him were racist (mmmkay) and then dropped the C-bomb.

His claim is that the Clintons paid a tech company to connect to the servers in the White House and that such spying merits the death penalty.

No, I’m not making this up. And it gets nuttier.

The timeframe referenced was during Obama’s presidency. With that kind of power—knowing how to hack a future president—how could Clinton have failed to win some little election?

To be fair, his claim about Clinton derived from an investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe. Not surprisingly, the information that’s been gathered by John Durham is blown out of context.

Not that we’ve learned anything. The most chilling thing to come of this nonsense was Giuliani’s appearance on Newsmax.

The video kept sandwiching Rudy’s face between two much younger women (as seen in the above screenshot), and it hit me again—that’s the America these people are fighting for.

I have to keep hoping their deranged rants will not prevail again.
