Conveniently ignoring his history of pushing former President Trump’s falsehoods, Rudy Giuliani took to Twitter Wednesday night to fire off a tone-deaf tweet calling for the end of “misinformation” — which the former Trump personal lawyer is notorious for spreading.

On Wednesday night, Giuliani got on a pedestal about the dangers of “misinformation” and how it endangers democracy. Giuliani’s months-long jaunt of fruitless legal battles contesting the legitimacy of the election process fed into the Trumpian rhetoric that incited the pro-Trump mob behind the deadly Capitol insurrection earlier this year.

Giuliani’s peddling of Trump’s false election fraud claims have even landed him in hot water with voting technology companies Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic that have become the center of debunked Trumpworld conspiracies. Both Dominion and Smartmatic allege in their lawsuits against Giuliani that he and Sidney Powell  conspired to spread disinformation.
