KRISTIN FISHER: Well, that was certainly a colorful press conference by Rudy Giuliani, but it was about facts. So much of what he said was just wrong or has already been thrown in court. And, you know, Giuliani opened with this very bold and unfounded claim that much of the alleged national election fraud he is referring to came from a central location. He called it a “nationwide conspiracy”. Yet he failed to provide any hard evidence to support this one specific claim. Especially when you are dealing with an assertion that really goes to the heart of our democratic process.
Before we get those two women’s trophies, let’s remember that Perino, who has moved herself from the far right to center stage in recent years, is only a few years away from asking television meteorologists to treat Benghazi instead of climate change. Kristin Fischer’s last big report on the news was breathlessly telling a story about Syrian refugees and Muslim refugees in general that was not only anti-Islamic but was entirely fabricated.
The fact is, Giuliani is done. He is dangerous and desperate because politically this is the end of the road for him. He rode the American mayor’s lie into the ground and then got another chance to stay out of prison with a second hot, smelly wind from the MAGA movement as his corruption in New York took a back seat.
Newly released former director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Christopher Krebs responded to the Giuliani situation as follows:
That press conference was the most dangerous 1-hour 45-minute television broadcast in American history. And possibly the craziest. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you’re in luck.

And here is the Fox News moment of zen.
