Rudy Giuliani's Bizarre Court Statements Get Roasted For Their 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Energy

On Tuesday, November 17, President Trump's legal team, led by Rudy Giuliani, appeared in Williamsport, Pennsylvania to argue that the well-publicized result of the 2020 election (that Joe Biden won Pennsylvania) should be overturned due to conspiracy theories of fraud.

Appearing before Judge Matthew Brann, Giuliani offered up some of the strangest, most unhinged arguments any follower of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has ever heard.

After asking the judge if he could take his mask off, Giuliani began to attack mail-in ballots, saying:

"It's widespread, nationwide voter fraud. ... This is not an accident. You'd have to be a fool to think this is an accident."
"You'd have to be a fool to think that somebody woke up Philadelphia, and in Pittsburgh, and in Milwaukee, and in Detroit, and in Phoenix, and all the way in Las Vegas, and way back in Atlanta, and said 'I'm going to shut out all the Republicans today.'"

Giuliani later admitted to voting by mail himself in the past.

The former New York mayor's arguments were so bizarre that they reminded many people of Charlie Kelly from the television comedy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.


Giuliani, who couldn't seem to nail down just how many ballots he claimed were illegal in Pennsylvania, also left the court with many memorable quotes.

He at one point said:

"As far as we're concerned, your honor, those ballots could've been from Mickey Mouse."



Giuliani also appeared to misunderstand the concept of "strict scrutiny," which is a basic tenant of constitutional law.

Even more embarrassingly, Giuliani openly admitted to not know the meaning of the word "opacity."

"I'm not sure what opacity means. It probably means you can see. It's a big word, your honor."



Giuliani's own associates are facing criminal charges for alleged fraud.


Even the judge hearing Trump's case seemed fairly amused by Giuliani's antics.



Rudy Giuliani's prime days in legal practice seem to be far behind him.


Ultimately, Trump's latest lawsuit is unlikely to sway the result of the election he lost by over 5.9 million votes and by a projected over 70 electoral votes...

Though it provides some laughs at least.
