Rudy Giuliani Mocked For Incoherent Message To Reporter After Flynn Sentencing, Twitter Wonders If He's Drunk

What was going through Rudy Giuliani when he texted an apparently incoherent statement to a reporter regarding Robert Mueller's sentencing advisement for Michael Flynn?

According to Twitter, probably lots and lots of alcohol.

The former New York mayor turned top Trump lawyer texted a statement to Politico regarding a filing suggesting that Flynn not serve any time behind bars in exchange for the substantial help he offered in the Russia investigation. In it, Giuliani appeared to claim that the investigation was a sham, though the statement was filled with spelling and grammatical errors and the random word capitalization that Donald Trump also seems to love.

"Wow big crime for a SPECIAL WHATEVER maybe a group of Angry Bitter Hillary Supporters who are justifying themselves by the goal justifies the means....Over the top In ethical behavior," Giuliani wrote.

The reaction from Twitter was swift. Many questioned Giuliani's mental capacities, while others suggested that he may have been hitting the bottle a little hard amid the development that seems to be bad news for Donald Trump. The largely redacted sentencing advisement seems to point to a larger investigation of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, something that both Trump and Giuliani both have strongly denied.

Giuliani responded by accusing Twitter of being in cahoots with anti-Trump entities to "invade my text" and appeared to suggest that it may have been Time Magazine behind all of it. This was met with even more mockery from the internet, and led many to wonder how someone who struggled to understand how hyperlinks work could have sold himself as a cybersecurity expert.
