Look, we knew that the Trump team was getting pretty darn desperate when it comes to their attempts to somehow sway the results of an election that’s already been called in favor of his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden. So far, they’ve stooped as low as contradicting demands to stop the count and keep counting based on whether he was winning the state or not, frivolous lawsuits with little more evidence than hearsay scribbled on a sticky note, a multitude of manic tweets, and phone calls to election officials in an attempt to sway them away from certifying the vote.
However, what Trump’s personal attorney and head of his election lawsuits fiasco Rudy Giuliani pulled today was one for the books, folks.
Today, Rudy held yet another press conference, in which he attempted to convince reporters that Joe Biden’s win was a big, fat, cheating scam — once again with no evidence of such whatsoever. In fact, his evidence was so non-existent that the attorney took to acting out a movie scene from the 1992 film, My Cousin Vinny, in an attempt to get his point across.
“Did you all watch My Cousin Vinny?” Rudy exclaimed from the podium. “You know, the movie? It’s one of my favorite law movies because he comes from Brooklyn. And the nice lady who said she saw [the crime] and then he says to her, ‘How many fingers do I got up?’ and she says, ‘Three.'”
“Well, she was too far away,” Giuliana continued to ramble, comparing the witness in the old movie to the Republican poll watchers. “These people were further away than ‘My Cousin Vinny’ was from the witness. They couldn’t see a thing.”
Yup, that really happened. Watch Rudy Giuliani reference a courtroom scene from the timely 1992 film “My Cousin Vinny.” pic.twitter.com/tBis5HDf6k

As I’m sure you can imagine, social media had… Thoughts:
Rudy Giuliani is quoting “My Cousin Vinny” to prove widespread ballot fraud. That’s all you need to know about this press conference. Still no smoking gun.

So apparently Rudy Giuliani is impersonating My Cousin Vinny and that’s it, I can’t take any more, I think my time on earth must come to an end. If you need me I’ll be constructing a moon base to live alone among the stars.

Rudy Giuliani just tried to use a scene from my cousin Vinny as evidence. If we are going to use movies as evidence, I recommend we start with the new Borat.

I do believe they have finally reached the peak of pathetic, folks.
