Send in the clown

Rudy Giuliani held a news conference on Thursday during which he continued to support the president’s baseless assertion that the election had been fraudulent and appeared to drip sweat and hair dye.

“Remind me, is it a good sign when your lawyer starts melting?” Stephen Colbert joked on Thursday.

“And it seems like the press conference was getting a little hot, because partway through his presentation, Rudy sweat so much that his hair dye started running down his face. Either that, or he had so much to drink he was sweating merlot.” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“Looks like Rudy got a bad batch of ‘Just for Henchmen.’” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“Wow, nothing screams ‘confident lawyer’ like a guy standing in front of everyone dripping in sweat.” — JIMMY FALLON

“You know your legal strategy is [expletive] up when even your hair starts crying about it.” — TREVOR NOAH

“It was going down both cheeks. This dude was growing a chin strap beard in real time.” — TREVOR NOAH

You can’t make this shit up. He charges a legal fee of $20,000 a day and can’t afford a proper hairdresser. It sure helps your presidential bid to have a clown for legal representation. But then again, the faithful did not see him melting on stage. Yeah, stage, as in reality show – farce. I’m about done looking at orange make-up too …

“I mean, Trump always said that he had leakers in his administration, but I didn’t know it was this bad.” — TREVOR NOAH

“Later, they had to clean Rudy off like a sea gull in those commercials for Dawn dish soap.” — JIMMY FALLON

“His face looks like what happens when you wring out a rag at Jiffy Lube.” — JIMMY FALLON

“But this is good — Rudy dried himself off by standing in front of a leaf blower from Four Seasons Total Landscaping.” — JIMMY FALLON

Cat count

We call it “cat count.” Seven cats, sometimes I’m not entirely sure they are all safe. So, we do a visual roll call – “cat count.” I’ve been trying to get a sequence of seven shots. Eh? Seven cats? (see yesterday’s post) They were all primed and ready, just sitting around the living room. I got ‘em! It’s not portraiture but more like inventory – three sets of twins and then Elle. Ordinarily, the cats are quite independent and never in the same room together.
