Rudy Giuliani Just Explained Why Witches Should Not Be Offended by Donald Trump's Use of 'Witch Hunt' to Describe the Mueller Investigation, and Welcome to 2019

Only halfway through its first week, it appears the year 2019 is doomed to be as strange as its predecessor—especially if former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani has anything to do with it.

Now acting as President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Giuliani took to Twitter to explain in a bonkers tweet why self-described witches—who decried Trump's frequent use of the term "witch hunt"—should relax.


"According to CNN witches favor Democrats and they are offended that the Meuller [sic] investigation is described as a Witch Hunt," the man formerly known as "America's Mayor" said. "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."

It's common knowledge that the term "witch hunt" originated from the Salem Witch Hunts. Scientists now believe that the citizens of Salem may have been so quick to believe in the presence of witches due to poisoning from a fungus called ergot on their wheat whose long-term consumption can cause hallucinations.

Many wouldn't have been surprised if Giuliani himself was on hallucinogenics when he wrote this.

The tweet's reasoning was almost completely incoherent.

Others, like attorney and Kellyanne Conway's husband George Conway, thought it fitting that this was the man representing Donald Trump.

People were still quick to point holes in the shell of an argument that was there.

Many pointed out that—unlike the Salem "witches," who were hanged if they insisted they didn't practice witchcraft—many of those taken down by Mueller's findings pleaded guilty themselves or were charged on strong evidence.

But primarily, people were shocked by Giuliani's fall from grace...and competence.

This might be the craziest tweet of 2019 so far...and there are still 362 days to go.
