Rudy Giuliani, the attorney of President Donald Trump, has said that witches should not be insulted by the phrase “witch hunt” that is constantly used in when referring to the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is probing into the alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
The ex-NYC mayor went on to explain on Twitter why the President’s line for attacking Mueller’s investigation is not something to take offense from.
Apparently referring to a CNN segment that ran over the festive period, Giuliani wrote, “According to CNN witches favor Democrats and they are offended that the Meuller [sic] investigation is described as a Witch Hunt.”
“There is no reason for the witches to be offended because Witch Hunt derives from, for example, the Salem Witch Hunts where people were executed unjustly,” Giuliani said, as reported by Newsweek.
“There is a lot to be offended by Donald Trump, and I think his use of the term ‘witch hunt’ is very low on that list of priorities for most witches,” said Amanda Yates Garcia in a conversation with CNN’s Jeanne Moos.
“But nevertheless, it does demonstrate his ignorance as usual,” Garcia added.
