Things are apparently not going well in Trump world the past few weeks. Not only is the president having frequent meltdowns on Twitter, but now his personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, is doing the same. He went on a tirade on Twitter, believing that someone is altering his tweets, when in reality it's just his bad punctuation skills leading to hyperlinks being created.

 

The former mayor of New York was hired by Donald Trump last April as a way to help him with being implicated in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation and to put a quick end to it. Eight months later the probe is still going strong, and Trump is implicated even more. 

Along with his talents governing a large city and being an attorney, Giuliani dabbles in tech as well. His consulting firm has a subsidiary with a focus on tech that doesn't really do much technical work, and he was also briefly a cybersecurity adviser to the White House.

 

Last Friday he left a tweet and didn't bother to put spaces in between punctuation and the next letter. He typed, "Mueller filed an indictment just as the President left for G-20.In July he indicted the Russians who will never come here just before he left for Helsinki.Either could have been done earlier or later.Out of control!Supervision please?" 

When he posted that to Twitter, the social network picked up "G-20.In" as a hyperlink, as ".in" is a domain for the Indian government. Some registered that as a website later that day with the website not saying anything else other than "Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country."

 

Four days later, on Tuesday, Giuliani, obviously confused and not understanding what a hyperlink is or how it's created, did know enough to put spaces in after his punctuation, but blamed Twitterfor allowing someone else to insert a link in his tweet. 

He wrote, "Twitter allowed someone to invade my text with a disgusting anti-President message. The same thing-period no space-occurred later and it didn't happen. Don't tell me they are not committed cardcarrying anti-Trumpers. Time Magazine also may fit that description. FAIRNESS PLEASE"

 

Obviously the reason it didn't happen the other time he typed with no space in between the period and a letter was because it wasn't spelling out a real domain, such as .in 

He also had an errant tweet just a few days before. He originally tweeted, "Hysterical coverage of Cohen plea. It misses point that ,once again like Corsi leaked documents demonstrate, Mueller's  Crew has no evidence of collusion. Along the way,however,he is keeping America safe from false statement makers or people with faulty memories or both."

 

Later that same day he retweeted that post and commented, "Kimim  ° has f" 

It's definitely unclear what that is supposed to mean, but it just may have something to do with covfefe.
