… when it comes to being the Worst of the Worst. Like anyone in the Trump Crime Cartel:
The White House just named Andrew Giuliani, son of Rudy, to the Holocaust Memorial Council "in part because Trump has known him since infancy and also the president is said to enjoy golfing with the former New York mayor’s son." https://t.co/Aqk2JCuXOM

Every single Republican who ever raises any stink about the qualification of any Biden nominee for anything must be, by statutory order, whipped with a urine-soaked sock and laughed out of the halls of Congress forthwith. And hereby. https://t.co/HsnPAU20J2

Or Little Prince Rand, once again letting slip the mask on ‘Libertarianism’:
If people are moved to vote when ordinarily they would not be, we be fucked, says the shitbag libertarian for whom an active democracy with an engaged, pluralistic populace is dangerous indeed. As for Bartolomo, the ghost of Joey Ramone called and he wants his song back. https://t.co/ksYTxaASYC

This is a personal insult to 81 million Americans, telling them that their vote shouldn't count. https://t.co/SOhs8PyrrG

Or, just go down to the nadir, see who’s looking for his chance to sell pardons, no questions asked beyond Has the check cleared?

Man, Giuliani fils looks almost as intelligent as the Trumpkins.
@jayjaybear: chubby eric, no?
A letter to the Post
@Chetan Murthy: that’s it. That’s who he looks like. I can sleep now. Thanks.
@Chetan Murthy: I had to go back and look because I just glanced and my mind said “Eric”, no question. Do they all come out of the same evil gumball machine?
@Chetan Murthy: Chris Farley played him on SNL
Does anyone remember Henri Le Chat?
Appointing a golfing buddy to something seem about right for Donald Trump.

That Giuliani boy just ain’t right.
I still can’t get over how they so clearly state that they’re terrified of people voting. They should be beaten about the head and neck with it for the next 40 years, but of course they won’t be.
@Emma from FL:
Like son, like father.
I think that’s how it goes…….
@Amir Khalid: Yeah, his caddie has been his co-tweeter for the last 4+ years.
What do you call this political party of sentient shitstains?
Oh right – fuckers!
They are always afraid that someone might make an intelligent decision. And vote for the other person, you know a woman or a minority…… at least for someone that isn’t a conservative. And is human. Enough of those people get elected and their entire grifting enterprise will be destroyed.
@Kristine: Because the fuckers know people won’t vote for “Tax cuts for the rich and fuck everyone else!”
@HumboldtBlue: Henri has been a joy to me for years—another loss to 2020.
@Chetan Murthy: There seem to be a lot of proto-Buttheads in the Trump circle, no? Or is it proto-Beavises?
I’m of the opinion that Andrew and Eric share the same DNA….
@montanareddog: What did Beavis and Butthead do to deserve that comparison?
Is Andrew what happens when cousins marry, or was that another wife/baby-mama?
Flirting with the Incitatus Line.
@oclib: Yes, I was wondering just how well acquainted Mrs. Giuliani was with DJTrump at the time of Andrew’s conception.
@Aleta: Yeah, I didn’t find out until this summer that after his first stint as AG, Barr was the mastermind behind Virginia abolishing parole. Grrr. However, it’s one of the awful policies that our new unified Democratic government reversed this year.
is that urine-soaked sock utilized with a ten foot pole….asking for a friend….
That Donald. Petty and clueless until the very end.
@LesGS: well…it was mentioned that trump has known him since infancy and infancy is a broad term…so there you go…..
If we had a decent press in this country someone would steal Ghouliani Jr’s DNA and prove he’s Eric Trump’s fraternal twin.
No, let’s spend some time agonizing over Jill Biden’s honorific; let’s ask Dr. Seb Gorka to weigh in!
@jayjaybear: He looks like Biff from Back to the Future, and nothing like Giuliani.
@CapnMubbers: NO! Is Henri gone?
@oclib: I was thinking the same.
Also, Chetan Murthy is right, he does look like a chubby Eric.
@opiejeanne: for some reason I first thought he was the Koch guy who designs those horrid print shirts, like yellow with money bags.
“Here’s the paper appointing him to the Holocaust Memorial Council. Only needs your signature.”
“Wait a minute, is this right? You positive it’s not spelled Jewliani? Ah, screw it, hand me that Sharpie.”
There’s something…………….off about Andrew. I remember him as a little kid standing next to the podium when Rudy was giving his inaugural speech, and he was gesturing and talking and just acting strange. I couldn’t understand why they let him stand there-?
And today he golfs with the President. What a country!
Is a council position a paid position or a pro bono position? I’ve covered the grounds on google and can’t find squat other than they meet only twice a year….
Happy Birthday, Keef. Mr Richards is 77 today.
@Amir Khalid: You mean Keef is 777 today.
There is so much happening that a lot of the trump corruption news gets lost in the shuffle. I’m hoping for a special “ReGrifting” thread for Boxing Day.

He was an obnoxious, spoilt, badly-behaved little brat.
Plus ça change…
It isn’t new that Republicans say that they oppose more voting because Democrats might win, it makes sense to their white supremacist voters, and it is completely reasonable to a media for whom politics is a sport and rural whites are ‘America’.
@John Revolta: Yep, I remember that. Nothing seemed “off” to me, he was just behaving like any other spoiled little damaged NYC rich-kid asshole would. Hella booze-face on that fucker, I genuinely pity the unfortunate waitstaff he’s undoubtedly abused with no tip
@Juju: Maybe a hint of Nick Nolte…

So Barr is a true conservative, on the wrong side of history, knew it, did it anyway.
Let’s not forget that Giuliani, like Trump, has shown signs of admiration for Mussolini (I remember that he refused to deny hosting Alessandra Mussolini at Gracie Mansion when she visited New York, and Wayne Barett’s biography of Giuliani documents Giuliani’s mother’s idolization of Mussolini.)

@Brachiator: Makes one wonder if “golfing buddy” was the kind of selection process that Trump used in hiring for his business that made Trump the eleven times bankrupt success he is today.

Times like this I wish the media had some subtlety,
Media Talking head “Dr Seb Gorka; on these claims that Dr Jill Biden degree is overstated because she insists on it being used before her name at all times, we can assume you agree Dr Seb Gorka (I have that correct, right?). Please comment”

Trump “Italian, Jews, they are the same thing? Right? I know both of ’em are from New York City.”
Important question, were hackers tipped off that cybersecurity at U.S agencies has been weakened under tRUMP?
@Warblewarble: Why would they need to be? I think it was a fair assumption.
@Warblewarble: I’ve been wondering if leaving the back door unlocked was part of his deal with Putin. All those recently fired cyber security people.
@Kristine: You know, I’ve been wondering the exact same thing. The timing is very convenient, isn’t it.
The Moar You Know
@Warblewarble: It wasn’t, hate to tell you. US Government cybersecurity has been a joke, and I mean that literally, from day one since I started working in that world over twenty years ago. The USG really needs to burn all their systems down and start from scratch, as not a one of them was in any way “secure” from the day they were deployed. And they’re compromised beyond repair now, as everyone knew they would be one day.
@Faithful Lurker: Attacks like this take weeks or months to pull off. It’s one of the main differences between your average black hat outfit and state actors. Dismantling the cyber-security apparatus was more about letting his Kremlin pals fuck with elections, methinks.
