Rudy Giuliani faced widespread ridicule on Twitter late Wednesday for getting all worked up about witches.
The former New York City mayor, who is now President Donald Trump’s lawyer, ranted about Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible Trump campaign collusion:
According to CNN witches favor Democrats and they are offended that the Meuller investigation is described as a Witch Hunt. There is no reason for the witches to be offended because Witch Hunt derives from,for example,the Salem Witch Hunts where people were executed unjustly.

He also incorrectly spelled the special counsel’s last name as “Meuller” instead of “Mueller.”
Giuliani “was likely referring” to this CNN segment that aired during the holidays about witches who took issue with Trump for using the term “witch hunt” in defense of Mueller’s probe, Mediaite reported:
Tweeters inevitably called out Giuliani for his post:
One fateful night, no one knows for sure which, all these guys got an incurable degenerative neurological disease from the same Mar-A-Lago carving station. Researchers call it Facebook Brain. They're all living to 95. https://t.co/0boG4jGo0X

You see, back in those days, rich men would ride around in Zeppelins, dropping coins on people, and one day I seen JD Rockefeller flying by. So I run of the house with a big washtub. I'd just used it that morning to wash my turkey, which in those days was known as a walking-bird. https://t.co/JQnziKlv5s

They were called the Salem Witch Trials, not hunts.
And witch hunts are associated with investigations that are played more for publicity than results. But Mueller’s not chasing publicity and he’s getting results. The ones chasing publicity are you and _your_ peeps.

One should question a lawyer’s ability representing a client who is a subject of the Mueller Investigation and that lawyer can’t even spell Mueller correctly.

Oh, you mean like chanting "LOCK HER UP!' about somebody who has never been charged with or convicted of a crime? Like THAT unjustly??

You are Trump’s second finest choice for a lawyer, after Cohen.

I believe Rudy has fallen and cannot get up.

I'm all for humor but a federal judge, just last month, raised the question of whether or not Trump's National Security Adviser committed treason against our country. It's not…. funny https://t.co/N2xYaKxnvW
