The Assets

In other news, Pope Francis has become the first pope to endorse same-sex or gay civil unions.

“Homosexual people have the right to be in a family. They are children of God,” Francis said in one of his sit-down interviews for the film. “You can’t kick someone out of a family, nor make their life miserable for this. What we have to have is a civil union law; that way they are legally covered.”

Meanwhile, up to 430,000 people watched Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez play video games on Twitch as part of a voting drive last night. I like this!

Finally, if there's one thing you can always count on, it's Republican projection. Rudy Giuliani is on video fondling himself in front of a woman he believed to be under age. And he was busted by Borat, the satirical character played by Sacha Baron Cohen.

In the film, released on Friday, the former New York mayor and current personal attorney to Donald Trump is seen reaching into his trousers and apparently touching his genitals while reclining on a bed in the presence of the actor playing Borat’s daughter, who is posing as a TV journalist.

Following an obsequious interview for a fake conservative news programme, the pair retreat at her suggestion for a drink to the bedroom of a hotel suite, which is rigged with concealed cameras.

After she removes his microphone, Giuliani, 76, can be seen lying back on the bed, fiddling with his untucked shirt and reaching into his trousers. They are then interrupted by Borat who runs in and says: “She’s 15. She’s too old for you.”

I'm not sharing screenshots here, but the images are worse than the description.

    That’s a wide swath of wrap up for the day!

    • It’s a big step in the right direction, but as someone said this morning, separate but equal doesn’t usually work out too well.

    • I’m impressed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Using Twitch to do GOTV is brilliant.

    • Never been a fan of Sacha Baron Cohen. Rudy Giuliani absolutely deserves all the humiliation the Universe can dump on him, but we already knew what a disgusting blob of protoplasm he is, so what’s the point? (Rhetorical question, of course.)

    I like this Pope.

    I like this congresswoman.

    I hate this former mayor.

    I like this fake journalist. He does a better job then some of the “real” ones.
