Do you remember when Rudy Giuliani, pictured above, was the highly respected mayor of New York City after 9-11? That tragic event thrust him into the national spotlight and he was even referred to at the time as “America’s Mayor.” Well, Giuliani is back in the spotlight, only this time he’s serving as Donald Trump’s personal attorney in federal court. And he’s making a fool of himself.
Giuliani, who has not argued a case in federal court since 1992, is accusing Democrats in control of big cities with large minority populations, like Philadelphia and Detroit, of hatching a nationwide conspiracy to steal the presidential election from Donald Trump. He is claiming that there is “widespread voter fraud” and that, in addition to Philadelphia, it has occurred in at least ten other jurisdiction around the country. Note that no such evidence of widespread voter fraud has emerged in the two weeks since Election Day.
The objective of Giuliani’s efforts on behalf of the Sore Loser-in-Chief, is to prevent state officials from certifying the vote results. Trump and his lawyers are hoping to reverse the outcome of the elections in key states, like Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Just today, Trump’s campaign announced that it will be seeking a partial recount in two highly Democratic counties — Milwaukee and Dane — in Wisconsin.
The Trump campaign and its lawyers are continuing to try to discredit the results of the election, even though it is clear that Trump lost. But legal experts say that there is little chance of that happening in those targeted states, much less being able to overturn the overall election results. In fact, experts from both political parties have publicly stated that the election went well and even international observers agree that were no serious election irregularities.
It is truly amazing how far people like Rudy Giuliani and, for that matter, most of those who have attached themselves to Donald Trump, have fallen. And it’s pathetic that Donald Trump cannot accept the irrefutable truth that he lost the election and would rather sow chaos and trauma upon the American people than graciously accept his defeat.
But then again, when has Donald Trump ever been gracious?
