Giuliani Suffers Delirious Public Freak-Out On ‘Fox News Sunday’


President Donald Trump and his top allies, including Rudy Giuliani, continue to allege that widespread fraud plagued the recently concluded presidential election, but there’s no actual supporting evidence for this claim. Local election officials from around the country, the Department of Homeland Security, and even Attorney General Bill Barr have all confirmed that there’s no legitimate evidence of election outcome-altering fraud. Trump and Giuliani are undeterred. During an appearance over the weekend on the Fox News program Sunday Morning Futures with host Maria Bartiromo, Giuliani presented a number of laughably outrageous claims.

Giuliani alleges the existence of a centrally planned Democratic plot to rig the election for Biden, but the so-called evidence for this claim amounts to Rudy saying (metaphorically): “It happened! I know it did!” and that’s it. The scope of the alleged fraud seems to gradually grow as time goes on. At this point, is there any major segment of society outside of his base that Trump himself doesn’t think is conspiring against him? Seriously! These claims aren’t a well-ordered, well-supported case against the election as-is — they’re a mish-mash of ignorantly conspiratorial paranoia.

Among other faulty so-called examples of his claims, Giuliani pointed out a video that purportedly shows unsupervised ballot-counting in Georgia… but there’s an observer from the office of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger right there in the footage! Giuliani told Bartiromo as follows:

‘This was a pattern that was set by somebody in Washington, because everybody else carried it out exactly in the same way, and they did it in the crooked cities. They didn’t do it everywhere. They did it in Philadelphia, in Pittsburgh, in Detroit, in Milwaukee, in Atlanta. They went to places where there’s a lot of corruption and the courts are not exactly the fairest… I don’t know who is in charge of it. All I can tell you is it looks like a very well-planned, very well-executed situation.’

Watch Giuliani’s unhinged comments below:

There’s just no meaningfully supporting evidence for these claims. During his time on Fox, Giuliani also claimed that, at one point, a truck pulled up a ballot-tabulation center in Detroit with 100,000 “phony” ballots for counting. These claims are just laughably unhinged, even though, bizarrely, Giuliani talks as though his claims are well-established facts. They’re definitely not. Fundamentally, thousands of people across the country could be required for this imaginary nationwide election fraud scheme to work. Giuliani is alleging the existence of a conspiracy that could require the cooperation of county and state canvassing boards, frontline election workers, observers from both major parties, supervisor of elections offices, and the list goes on.
