Rudy Giuliani has a lot on his mind these days.
After all, he’s working for a guy whose employees keep getting fired and/or going to jail.
At this point, America’s Mayor is probably feeling like he has about the same job security as a defense against the dark arts teacher.
Paul Manafort is in jail; Michael Cohen has officially jumped ship; and at this very moment, Don Jr. is probably considering starting over in Moscow and dropping Kimberly Guilfoyle from some young Ruskie state propaganda mouthpiece.
That leaves old Rudy to swoop in and save the day, not unlike that time he came off the bench sacked the QB in his final game at Notre Dame.
We should probably fact-check that one, but who has the time?
Anyway, it looks like the pressure is starting to get to Rude Boy, who got mercilessly dragged over the weekend after experiencing his own “covfefe” moment on Twitter.
As you can see, Rudy tweeted simply the word “you.”
Now, as far as we can tell this isn’t some sort of profound statement about the importance of the ego in 21st century America.
In all likelihood, Rudy simply hit “send” when he didn’t mean to.
We like to think he was about to launch into a Seinfeld-ian “you ever notice”-type rant about the plastic things on the end of shoelaces.
But that might just be an association we’re making because like the show, Giuliani should have stayed in 1990s New York.
This being 2018, Rudy was roasted within an inch of his life for his Twitter ineptitude.
Now, many of Ru-Giu’s defenders have pointed out that this is the sort of mistake that could happen to anyone.
And they’re absolutely right.
It’s easy to mess up on social media.
People tweet out the wrong thing all the time … just ask Anthony Weiner.
Which is a very good argument for politicians staying off of social media or at least being much more careful about the content that they post.
Sure, it’s not like Rudy threatened the president of Iran or anything, but it’s only a matter of time before someone in the Trump administration sparks an international incident, and it’s gonna be so embarrassing when future generations find out World War III started over an emoji.
