People Can’t Believe Rudy Giuliani’s Warning About Misinformation Isn’t A Comedy Bit

Twitter users greeted Rudy Giuliani’s warning about the dangers of misinformation with derision and disbelief.

Giuliani cautioned on Twitter this week that misinformation “has become a daily occurrence on social media platforms” that, if unaddressed, would “eventually lead to Jefferson’s worst nightmare of a poorly informed citizenry, which he saw as the greatest danger to democracy.”

People on Twitter pointed out that Giuliani, as Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, was a chief peddler of Trump’s lies that the 2020 election was marred by fraud and President Joe Biden didn’t really win.

The falsehoods culminated in the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot by a violent mob of Trump supporters intent on overturning the election result. At a pre-riot rally, Giuliani called for “trial by combat.”

Others on Twitter reminded the former New York mayor of the $1.3 billion lawsuit he faces from Dominion Voting Systems, which accuses him of defaming the company with his election fraud falsehoods.

Many detractors mockingly suggested Giuliani’s post was a joke:
