President Donald Trump's attorney and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani has widely established a perception of ineptitude after months of contradictory explanations for Trump's actions and a series of verbal gaffes that have since been immortalized.

So it's fair to say he lived up to expectations when responding to former Trump attorney Michael Cohen's leaked opening statement ahead of Cohen's testimony to the House Oversight Committee Thursday morning.

In the statement, Cohen calls Trump a racist, a conman, and a cheat. What's more, he presents documents which supposedly prove the allegation.

As usual, Giuliani attempted to defend the President, unequivocally denying Cohen's allegations and dismissing his credibility.

Also as usual, Giuliani succeeded in making things worse for the President.

Giuliani said:

"It's pathetic...If you believe him, you are a fool. He bragged he was connected to  Russian organized crime and he may be."

Giuliani cited Cohen's alleged ties to Russian organized crime while attempting to discredit his testimony against a President who's fended off allegations of entanglement with Putin for the better part of the last two years.


Many noticed that Giuliani's statement made Trump look bad on the Russia front.

They gave Rudy and Trump a challenge.

Many demanded that Trump and Giuliani follow Cohen's lead and testify under oath.

Some also warn that Giuliani will face the same fate as Cohen, with perhaps even less mercy.

Cohen's testimony is seven hours away at the time of this article's writing. It's already making waves.

Since the start of his campaign, President Donald Trump's support among Black voters has remained pitifully low.

Since her upset primary victory in the summer of 2018, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her progressive agenda have become a favorite target of the Right wing.

The party that claims to champion people who "pull themselves up by their bootstraps" often derides Ocasio-Cortez's former career as a bartender in Manhattan—a position she took after college when her father's death put her family in dire financial straits.

Two months after it emerged in Wuhan, China, the coronavirus has spread throughout Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, North America, and sub-Saharan Africa with nearly 84,000 cases worldwide.

The United States is scrambling to prepare for an outbreak that officials have deemed inevitable—but President Donald Trump and his staff are saying the concern is overblown.

All too often, words seem insufficient to describe the latest scandal or atrocity from the administration of President Donald Trump.

That's usually when The New Yorker steps in.

Famous for its headline-free covers, illustrators have perfectly captured the administration's mob-like tendencies or the subservience of once respected Senators to Trump's every whim.

The State Department is responsible for not only foreign relations and embassy operations outside the USA, they also take care of United States citizens and permanent residents when they work and travel in foreign nations.

In response to natural disaster, political unrest or pandemics, the State Department does whatever necessary to safely evacuate USA citizens and residents while mitigating any risks to the rest of the population of the country.

At least that's what is supposed to happen.

Despite the growing threat of the rapidly-spreading coronavirus, President Donald Trump has taken repeated steps to dismiss the need for widespread drastic action to contain an outbreak in the United States that experts have deemed inevitable.

But how could a President possibly benefit from being cavalier about a pandemic?
