DS248:

 

Giuliani admitted to Georgetown University Hospital on Sunday

 

https://us.cnn.com/2020/12/06/politics/rudy-giuliani-coronavirus-positive/index.html

 

 

 

 

Even Giuiliani I cannot wish a painful death, but I do wish him a painful and protracted recovery, after which he gets a dose of reality and humility with a very big needle. I fully agree with the comments of State Senator Elena Parent in the article.

 

 

 

 

Nah he'll get the special Trump cocktail. If he starts going mad it's the steroids - but I doubt he'll be working from home unlike Trump so we won't see any 'roid rage ...

DS248:  Giuliani tests positive for Covid-19, according to Trump 

 

 

 

 

As you would expect, Trump's tweet is more about "corruption" than about Rudy ...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You'd think they'd introduce a mental health fitness test for presidential candidates

From George Takei on Twitter: "After testing positive for Covid-19, Rudy Giuliani filed a lawsuit with the lab demanding the results be overturned."

Not Trump directly but a consequence: "Parler Users Are Gathering on Facebook to Complain About Parler

 

The dumb is strong: 

 

 

Last month, supporters of President Donald Trump announced their exodus from Facebook to “free speech” platforms such as Parler and MeWe after Facebook banned a series of groups for promoting election fraud conspiracy theories. Within a week, Parler became the most downloaded app on Apple and Android devices, and its user base doubled to more than 10 million members, the company said.

 

But cutting the Facebook cord appears easier said than done, and fledgling Parler users are gathering in Facebook groups dedicated to the act of abandoning Facebook. There, users are complaining about Parler’s confusing interface and the loneliness of a platform that none of their friends and family use.

 

“I’ve talked to so many that can’t even figure out how to get on it,” another member posted. “They’re still on FB thinking they’re on Parler.”

 

“I think some are confusing acceptance into THIS GROUP as having actually joined Parler. Not the case,” the admin of a pro-Parler Facebook group wrote.

Benjamin Franklin's: "He that lieth down with dogs shall rise up with fleas"



The Hill: The Arizona state legislature shuts down after Giuliani tests positive for coronavirus

The two chambers of the Arizona state legislature will suspend their work this week after former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani tested positive for the coronavirus less than a week after spending hours testifying in front of Republican legislators in a futile bid to overturn the state’s election results.

Spokespeople for the state House and Senate confirmed to The Hill Sunday that the two chambers would cancel their planned meetings this week because of concerns over the spread of the coronavirus.

President Trump tweeted that Giuliani tested positive for the virus Sunday, and reports said he is receiving treatment at a Washington-area hospital.

Giuliani, Trump’s lead legal strategist in a series of cases the president has lost in court, has traveled to several states in recent days to testify — not under oath — about alleged election irregularities for which he has not offered evidence.

In Arizona, Giuliani spent almost ten hours with Republican legislators at a Phoenix hotel on Monday. He appeared without a mask, and at one point he even asked a fellow witness to remove her mask while he was sitting less than six feet away.

At least nine state lawmakers and [from the federal House Of Representatives, two Arizona republicans]. The members posed for a group photograph tweeted out by the Arizona Republican Party, without a mask in sight.

I really don't want to take pleasure from someone else's misfortune, but I couldn't help bursting out in laughter when I read this. How is Trump going to get any state legislature to choose electors favourable to him if he keeps sending them all into quarantine? Rudi is like typhoid Mary. He is such a stumbling fool. This campaign is like an episode of the Keystone Kops with clowns running around in circles bashing into each other and tripping over their shoelaces. 

 

Biden doesn't have a thing to worry about. These morons couldn't stage a coup to overthrow a pancake!

I wish that I could share your optimism.

 

Georgia is a very conservative state, and the Jan 5 senate run-off races are predicted to be very close.

 

Trump is an incompetent idiot, but Cult45 still love him.

I don't think we would be able to tell the difference.

Rudy won't get sick, he's a Replicant, same batch as Leon (pic).

 

 

Holden: Come in. Sit down.

 

Rudy: Care if I talk? I'm kind of nervous when I take tests.

 

Holden: Uh, just please don't move.

 

Rudy: Oh, sorry. I already had a morality test this year, I don't think I've ever had one of these-

 

Holden: Reaction time is a factor in this, so please pay attention. Now, answer as quickly as you can.

 

Rudy: Sure.

 

Holden: One-six-oh-oh Pennsylvania.

 

Rudy: That's the hotel.

 

Holden: What?

 

Rudy: Where I live.

 

Holden: Nice place?

 

Rudy: Yeah, sure I guess-- that part of the test?

 

Holden: No, just warming you up, that's all.

 

Rudy: Oh. It's not fancy or anything.

 

Holden: You're in Washington, walking along the street when all of the sudden-

 

Rudy: Is this the test now?

 

Holden: Yes. You're in Washington walking along the street when all of the sudden you look down-

 

Rudy: What one?

 

Holden: What?

 

Rudy: What street?

 

Holden: It doesn't make any difference what street, it's completely hypothetical.

 

Rudy: But how come I'd be there?

 

Holden: Maybe you're fed up, maybe you want to plan your next voting lawsuit, who knows? You look down and you see a bottle of hand sanitiser, Rudy, it's sitting there-

 

Rudy: Hand sanitiser, what's that?

 

Holden: Know what bleach is?

 

Rudy: Of course.

 

Holden: Same thing.

 

Rudy: I've never seen hand sanitiser -- But I understand what you mean.

 

Holden: You reach down, you flip the bottle of hand sanitiser over on its back Rudy.

 

Rudy: Do you make up these questions, Mr. Holden, or do they write them down for you?

 

Holden: The bottle of hand sanitiser lays on its back, baking in the hot sun, but you're not helping.

 

Rudy: What do you mean I'm not helping?

 

Holden: I mean, you're not helping. Why is that Rudy? -- They're just questions, Rudy. In answer to your query, they're written down for me. It's a test, designed to provoke an emotional response. -- Shall we continue? Describe in single words, only the good things that come in to your mind about... your Fuehrer.

 

Rudy: My Fuehrer?

 

Holden: Yeah.

 

Rudy: Let me tell you about my Fuehrer Trump...

Final scene, in the American tragedy "You've Been Trumped"

Barr quickly stuff Eurobonds and a change of clothes into suitcase. Large garbage cans overflow with paper shredder shards. Outside window, staff are gathered around steel barrels throwing documents into fire.

The New York Times - Georgia recertifies election results, affirming Biden’s victory.

 

today

 


ATLANTA - Georgia’s secretary of state Monday recertified the results of the state’s presidential race after another recount had reaffirmed Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory over President Trump, the third time that results showed that Mr. Trump had lost the state.

 

We have now counted legally cast ballots three times, and the results remain unchanged,” Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, said in a news conference.

 

The announcement on Monday is the latest blow to Mr. Trump’s attempts to subvert the election results in Georgia. 

 

He lost in the initial election tally; a manual hand recount ordered by the state; and the latest recount, which was requested by his campaign and completed by machines after the state certified its results last month.  ...

 

 

 

 

Three strikes and you're out.  😐
