Rudy Giuliani Drains Final Dregs of Dignity With Abraham Lincoln Filter Attack Video

Rudy Giuliani has managed to find one last scrap of dignity to lose with an inexplicable and borderline incomprehensible attack video featuring himself disguised as Abraham Lincoln using an augmented reality filter. In the video, the former New York City mayor appears with a big superimposed hat and beard, and he, for some reason, meanders in and out of what seems to be his best attempt at a British accent. The video is targeted at Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, whom Republicans have frequently accused of coming up with a controversial scheme in the 1990s—when he worked in the Clinton administration—to allow donors to sleep in Lincoln’s bedroom at the White House. That claim has been debunked by fact-checkers. Nevertheless, Giuliani, playing Lincoln, described McAuliffe as “the man who dishonored our past by selling my bedroom hundreds and hundreds of times to scoundrels.” McAuliffe is yet to dignify the video with a response.

Matt Gaetz suspended from practicing law… again

According to a report from the Daily Beast’s Jose Pagliery, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is no longer entitled to practice law in his home state after having his license pulled by the Florida Bar.

The controversial lawmaker, who is facing investigations at both the state and federal level, has reportedly failed to keep current on his fees to the Florida Bar, which has in turn labeled him “delinquent” and “unable to practice law.”

According to the report, this is not the first time that Gaetz has run afoul of the bar.

“The Daily Beast has learned that the Florida Bar has branded Gaetz as ‘delinquent’ twice in the past two years. The organization temporarily cut him off in 2019 and again in 2020, because Gaetz failed to affirm that he is properly handling and protecting any clients’ money in trust accounts. Lawyers must abide by strict rules to ensure they are not stealing or misusing money that belongs to the people they represent,” Pagliery wrote, adding that a spokesperson for the Republican lawmaker issued a statement insisting, “Congressman Gaetz is no longer actively engaged in the practice of law. He is focused on representing his constituents in Congress, not the courtroom.”

Gaetz has had a rough week with reports of fundraising problems and then being confronted in hearings on the Jan 6th insurrection. He was criticized by one Florida lawyer who is a regular critic of the Florida Republican.

“He clearly doesn’t take his law license very seriously when he doesn’t take the time to pay the $265 dues,” said Daniel Uhlfelder who lives in Gaetz’s district. “He’s not a serious lawyer. He’s not a serious congressman. He’s not a serious person. This is one small but symbolic example of that.”

On Thursday, the Beast reported that investigators have added two more lawyers with experience in public corruption cases and child exploitation crimes to the sex-trafficking involving Gaetz.

Happening in Washington DC right now
Sorry for bringing this to your attention but as a kiwi just can’t resist :grin:
Hopefully the Eagles are not too blown away.

Sorry but:

However!

The Eagles secured their first-ever try against the All Blacks during the test.

Prior to the start, American captain Bryce Campbell dropped to one knee at centre field as he presented a white, No. 11 U.S. jersey in honor of Sean Wainui, the Māori All Blacks player who died in a car crash earlier this week.

The All Blacks then performed the haka to honor Wainui and it drew wild applause from those in attendance before the visitors made a blockbuster start to the test match at the home of the NFL’s Washington Football Team.

The Eagles, who prior to Saturday’s match had faced the All Blacks three times in test rugby, were vastly outplayed but did make history as they recorded the team’s first ever try against the most successful team in international rugby.

American Nate Augspurger slipped by Sam Whitelock into the backfield, put on a brilliant step past Damian McKenzie while a diving Richie Mo’unga also couldn’t catch him as he scored under the posts to pull the hosts to within 59-7 at the break.

The hosts added a second try when left winger Ryan Matyas dove in the corner in the tackle of Will Jordan. It appeared Matyas was tackled out but the on-field decision of a try was backed by a review that checked if his foot was in touch.

The All Blacks, however, were full of energy and had their attack firing yet were ultimately unable to eclipse their record test victory set at the 1995 World Cup in South Africa when they beat Japan 145-17.

Billed as the 1874 Cup, which is a reference to the first account of organised rugby being played in the United States, the match was designed to grow interest in a nation hoping to stage a future Rugby World Cup.
