A dark fluid dripped down Rudy Giuliani's head during a Thursday press conference, prompting social media users to speculate what it could be.www.mediaite.com

In the 90 minutes that followed, the former New York mayor and his colleagues spun a web of mistruths that made mention of the Clinton Foundation, liberal megadonor George Soros and the late Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chávez.
And although Ellis described their remarks as merely an “opening statement” on behalf of the campaign, the discursive briefing — during which streams of what appeared to be hair dye dripped down both sides of Giuliani’s face — betrayed almost immediately the desperation of Trump’s flailing effort to undermine President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
Trump campaign officials looked on aghast as the circus-like affair unfolded. At one point, the campaign’s own audio livestream of the news conference was interrupted by unknown voices remarking about the hair dye that seemed to be running down Giuliani’s face. The Trump campaign later claimed on Twitter that the people who could be heard mocking the former mayor “were NOT campaign employees.”
Trump chose to put Giuliani in charge of his legal battle last Friday following a string of courtroom losses. People close to the president saw Giuliani’s promotion as a tacit admission that Trump was going to lose and that he was more interested in pushing a PR narrative that the election was being stolen from him than pursuing further lawsuits.
But senior Trump aides have rolled their eyes over Giuliani’s assertions and have derided his antics — especially his news conference earlier this month outside a Philadelphia landscaping business — as embarrassing. Within the confines of Trump’s Arlington, Va., campaign headquarters, there is growing annoyance over Giuliani’s legal team, which has been described as disorganized and frenzied.
Tucker Carlson just now: He says his show has repeatedly asked Sidney Powell for evidence of her vote rigging claim. He says that she refuses to provide evidence, got angry with his staff, and told them to stop contacting her.
It's a fair point. I mean Biden is pretty notorious as a Satan-worshipping Muslim atheist, after all.
“Their basic argument is this was a conspiracy so vast and so successful that there’s no evidence of it,” said John R. Bolton, Mr. Trump’s third national security adviser, who was ousted last year.
“Now if that’s true, I really want to know who the people are who pulled this off,” he said on Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “We need to hire them at the C.I.A.”
It's certainly extraordinary.
It's just...phenomenal material. I love it.
