Beyond parody.

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani is known for making constant gaffes in attempts to defend his client.

Kamala Harris Brought In More Money In Her 'Opening Weekend' Than 'Twisters' Did—And Wow

Vice President Kamala Harris raised more than $81 million in 24 hours after officially launching her election campaign—an amount that surpasses even the opening weekend haul of the blockbuster movie Twisters.
