Rudy Giuliani isn’t having a great week. First he claimed that he was nearly killed in a grocery store, when in point of fact he was merely patted on the back. Next, his son lost his election. Then, Cassidy Hutchinson testified that Giuliani wanted a pardon from Donald Trump, which he accidentally confessed to on Twitter. On June 28th, Giuliani tweeted that “I specifically told Donald Trump that I did not want or need a pardon.” The very next day, Giuliani tweeted “Contrary to her (Cassidy Hutchinson) false testimony, she was never present when I asked for a pardon.” Giuliani, realizing his mistake, subsequently deleted the tweet. Rudy’s precipitous fall from grace grows more embarrassing every time we cover him, and it’s amazing to think that he probably would have been uncritically beloved as “America’s Mayor” if only he hadn’t entangled himself with Trump.
