It’s no “covfefe,” but really, can anything ever beat that?
Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor and Donald Trump’s perhaps overly talkative lawyer, sent out a tweet on Sunday morning that quickly went viral.
It was clearly a mistake, and may now be serving as a helpful distraction for the beleaguered Giuliani. But it’s prompted some first-class responses.
First, here’s the tweet.
It’s the kind of accidental posting any of us could share, and get roasted for. Twitter did exactly that.
Since signing on to represent Trump, Giuliani has gone on TV again and again to reinforce the president’s lies. This past week he’s been getting hammered in the news for saying that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen “has lied all his life,” a sharp reversal from Giuliani’s earlier claims dating all the way back to May that Cohen is “honest” and “going to tell the truth.”
That could be why “You” hasn’t been deleted, especially after an unfinished Saturday night tweet from Giuliani also caught fire on social media.
Tons of folks took “You” as a musical cue
*steel drums play*
Soulja Boy up in this ho
Watch me crank it, watch me roll
Watch me crank that Soulja Boy
Then Superman that ho
Now watch me… https://t.co/irvaFkeiMz

Others used it to rib Giuliani
“You” As in “you” over there have you seen any of my dignity? I can’t find it since I started defending Trump https://t.co/Aq83t3x3Xt

And of course, some folks just took the opportunity to dunk on Trump
But the best of the tweeting just got real weird about “You”
