Rudy Giuliani made one small mistake in a tweet supporting Trump. Someone just turned it against him.

Another reason why you should proofread before hitting ‘tweet.’

When Donald Trump’s former attorney and “fixer*” Michael Cohen plead guilty late November to lying to Congress about a Trump Organization plan to build a skyscraper in Moscow, Robert Mueller’s investigation got within striking distance of the president.


Cohen’s admission showed that Trump’s business associates were actively working with the Kremlin after he had accepted the Republican nomination for president in 2016.

Cohen’s admission was a significant development for multiple reasons:

— It established links between Donald Trump’s business interests in Russia and his troubling pro-Kremlin conduct in office.

— It suggests that Russia has leverage over Trump.

— It provided a possible reason as to why Trump’s team watered down the Republican Party’s official position on U.S. military aid to Ukraine.

— It showed the Trump’s family members are now a potential target of the Mueller investigation.

At a minimum, the facts of the case show that, as a candidate, Trump had a major conflict of interest between his business dealings and potential responsibilities as president. However, his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, seems to be more bothered by the special prosecutor’s timing than his client’s possible treasonous ties.

In his tweet, Giuliani had a small typo, that someone on the Internet realized was a great way to troll Trump and his lawyer. The former New York mayor forgot to enter a space between “G-20.” and “In” which some brilliant soul realized created a potential hyperlink: g-20.in

So someone purchased the URL and used it to send a message:
“Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country.”

Strangely, Giuliani has yet to delete his embarrassing tweet.

The brilliant tweet hacking caused quite a stir on Twitter.

*By the way … only people who are up to no good need a “fixer.”

A controversial editorial on America's obesity epidemic and healthcare by comedian Bill Maher on his HBO show "Real Time" inspired a thoughtful, and funny, response by James Cordon. It also made for a great debate about healthcare that Americans are avoiding.

At the end of the September 6th episode of "Real Time, " Maher turned to the camera for his usual editorial and discussed how obesity is a huge part of the healthcare debate that no one is having.

"At Next Thursday's debate, one of the candidates has to say, 'The problem with our healthcare system is Americans eat shit and too much of it.' All the candidates will mention their health plans but no one will bring up the key factor: the citizens don't lift a finger to help," Maher said sternly.

Customers will soon be able order one of the DIY kits in order to collect evidence "within the confines of the survivor's chosen place of safety" after an assault.

"With MeToo Kit, we are able to collect DNA samples and other tissues, which upon testing can provide the necessary time-sensitive evidence required in a court of law to identify a sexual predator's involvement with sexual assault," according to the website.

When we discuss barriers to healthcare in the developed world, affordability is commonly the biggest concern. But for some in the developing world, physical distance and topography can be the difference between life and death.

Widjifake, a hard-to-reach village in northwestern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) with a population of 6,500, struggles with having consistent access to healthcare supplies due to the Congo River and its winding tributaries.

It can take up to three hours for vehicles carrying supplies to reach the village.

Fox News and President Trump seem like they may be headed for a breakup. "Fox is a lot different than it used to be," Trump told reporters in August after one of the network's polls found him trailing for Democrats in the 2020 election.

"There's something going on at Fox, I'll tell you right now. And I'm not happy with it," he continued.

Some Fox anchors have hit back at the president over his criticisms. "Well, first of all, Mr. President, we don't work for you," Neil Cavuto said on the air. "I don't work for you. My job is to cover you, not fawn over you or rip you, just report on you."
