Rudy Giuliani must be able to communicate with the dead, who apparently turn out in droves to vote Democratic in elections. This is the only reasonable explanation for why he felt the need to disturb millions of American’s Sunday morning by once again appearing on CNN and telling Jake Tapper: “I’m sorry, dead people generally vote for Democrats rather than Republicans.”

The former New York City mayor and Trump mouthpiece was trying to bolster Trump’s evidence-free claims of widespread, Democrat-controlled voter fraud, which he continued to spout at rallies and on Twitter. Giuliani went on to claim that Republicans rarely cheat, because, “they don’t control the inner cities the way Democrats do. Maybe if Republicans controlled the inner cities, they’d do as much cheating as Democrats.”

Whoo boy, that old barely disguised racial code, “inner cities,” those hell-holes.

In addition to the undead, Giuliani went on to claim that illegal voters (presumably live ones), would be bussed from polling place to polling place, a practice he claimed he saw in New York City before he became mayor.

Giuliani did backtrack enough to note that said cheating would only impact close races. He allowed that if either candidate won Pennsylvania “by five points” the cheating he is so obsessed with would not have much of an impact. Meanwhile, Vice Presidential candidate Mike Pence claimed that he would “absolutely accept the result of the election.” He may be the only one on Trump’s team who would do so.

Two organizations tracking anti-immigrant advertising say they’ve documented more than 700 such ads leading into the 2022 midterms, including attacks against the Biden administration over a so-called “border crisis” and content designed to undermine a vastly popular pathway to citizenship for the nation’s undocumented communities.

The former is particularly shameless considering two of the previous administration’s worst policies largely shutting down the U.S. asylum system, Remain in Mexico and the debunked Title 42 public health order, are still in effect today. But that hasn’t stopped Republicans from lying. And as we get closer to Election Day, we already know it’ll only get worse.
