Brain bleach, stat


I’ve been poisoned with unwanted images of a corrupt 70-year-old Republican hopped up on Viagra demanding that a young woman service him, over and over.

Giuliani also took Viagra constantly. While working with Ms. Dunphy, Giuliani
would look to Ms. Dunphy, point to his erect penis, and tell her that he could not do any work until
“you take care of this.” Thus, Ms. Dunphy worked under the constant threat that Giuliani might
demand sex from her at any moment. Even when the Covid-19 pandemic halted Giuliani’s ability
to physically assault her, he demanded that she disrobe during their work-related
videoconferences.

It’s gross and disgusting and vile, but exactly what I should have expected of Giuliani.

A bombshell lawsuit out of Manhattan accuses Rudy Giuliani of forcing a former employee to submit to sex acts as a condition of her employment — including making her give him oral sex while he took calls from then-President Donald Trump on speaker phone.

“He often demanded oral sex while he took phone calls on speaker phone from high-profile friends and clients, including then-President Trump,” ex-staffer Noelle Dunphy claims in the 70-page lawsuit filed Monday.

“Giuliani told Ms. Dunphy that he enjoyed engaging in this conduct while on the telephone because it made him ‘feel like Bill Clinton,'” according to the lawsuit, which seeks $10 million in unpaid wages and damages.

Like the worst of Bill Clinton.

I don’t want to hear more about the sex stuff, but I do want the law to dig deeper into the money stuff.

The lawsuit also alleges — buried on page 25 — that Giuliani asked Dunphy for help “selling pardons” for $2 million a pop. Giuliani told her that he and Trump “would split” the fee, the lawsuit alleges.

“He also asked Ms. Dunphy is she knew anyone in need of a pardon, telling her that he was selling pardons for $2 million, which he and President Trump would split,” the lawsuit says.

Dunphy said she continued to work for Giuliani despite being “shocked and saddened by what had happened” because she feared losing the $1 million salary he had promised as well as free legal representation he had also agreed to give her.

It’s amazing how you can sit here thinking the crap from the Trump administration couldn’t possibly get worse, and then it does.

    Wait, if Giuliani or Trump get Into that machine from The Fly, things could get one order of magnitude more gross.

    I was going to suggest we withhold judgment for now and let the case play out, but who am I kidding? It’s Guiliani. Whether he’s guilty of this or not, we already know he’s a total shit just based on public statements and speeches.
    Now I’m wondering if it’s the Viagra that makes his eyes bug out when he talks and yes, I’ll take that brain bleach now, thank you.

    What can you say? This is one answer to the question, “What would you do for 1 million dollars?”

    “you can sit here thinking the crap from the Trump administration couldn’t possibly get worse, and then it does.”

    It’s not just worse than you think.
    It’s worse than you can think.

    The GOP leadership aren’t even cartoon villains any more.
    Cartoon villains have far more class and intelligence.

    And oh yeah, is this what the GOP means when they talk about “family values”?

  6. soul_biscuit says

    Giuliani is representing himself against the allegations.

    This is actually pretty insidious. If the lawsuit gets to the discovery stage, Giuliani will have the right to make Ms. Dunphy sit through a deposition. As his own lawyer, he will be able to question her personally. A whole new opportunity to threaten or intimidate her, within a legally sanctioned process. (Of course, her lawyer will be there too, but depositions are largely a free-for-all.)

    If I remember correctly, Richard Carrier personally deposed one of the people who accused him if inappropriate conduct in one of his defamation cases.

    I found the alert to this entry in my spam folder, right under a notice from “an unemployed security researcher” who wanted to tell me about my porn habits and videos of my pleasuring myself taken from my webcam.
    As I am a security practitioner, that’s already chuckle worthy, an ancient scam, more so, that my computer doesn’t have a microscope attachment just makes it ludicrous.
    About as ludicrous as any defense Rudy’s going to, ahem, raise.
    But, I am watching a film that displays an equal level of mental incompetence, Roar. A film noteworthy for having 70 cast and crew seriously injured over the decade that it took to make this most home movie in the history of film.
    So competent, 14 great cats died of airborne ailments, 3 were shot by law enforcement after an escape during a flood, stars were mauled badly and overall, looks like Rudy’s defense of election fraud claims done with endangered animals. Glad we have the endangered species act now!
    May we all enjoy endangered idiots earn their just rewards and soon.

    This will play out like Dumb and Dumber being remade, casting Dick Dastardly and Boris Badenov as the protagonists, while claiming the cast as a MENSA chapter meeting.

    because she feared losing the $1 million salary he had promised as well as free legal representation he had also agreed to give her.

    This is bizarre. Shouldn’t there have been an employment contract, so she wasn’t reliant on just his word that he’d pay her a million a year? Because we all know what his word is worth, and it’s about the same value as his capacity to provide effective legal representation. Did she quit after all that exploitative abuse because at the end of the first month $83k didn’t appear in her bank account?

    @Raven #9

    And oh yeah, is this what the GOP means when they talk about “family values”?

    PZ’s replacement of “family” with “patriarchy” is very apt here.
    But I fear that for most right-wingers, they don’t even care about that, it’s just talking points, ad-hoc rationalizations of their greed for power.

  11. F.O. says

    @soul_biscuit #10

    As his own lawyer, he will be able to question her personally.

    Jesus fucking christ.

  12. bcw bcw says

    An the legal assistance was about a prior abusive relationship so Giuliani was specifically selecting someone who was vulnerable to abuse.

  13. robro says

    She says the G-man made her work “…in short shorts with an American flag on them that he bought for her”! How patriotic of him. Nothing like rape on the old red, white, and blue.

    On jeez…he’s a complete creep: “I think of you as my daughter”! That’s how these jerks think of their daughters? Sort of Trump-ish of him.

    He can’t pull a Chump and say he doesn’t know her. There are lots of pictures of them together on the internet.

  14. gijoel says

    He cheated her out of the $1million didn’t he. It took me ten minutes to think of expressing that sentence without using a sex pun.

    I hope she takes him to the cleaners.

  15. says

    So Sasha Baron Cohen was RIGHT!?!? Well, I guess it’s not the first time a comedian beat the pundits to the punch.

  16. StevoR says

    F ing L. Vile stuff. Pass the brain bleach indeed.

    Staggering to think back to 2001 after the attacks on the World Trade Centre and Pentagon when Rudy Giuliani was popularly considered “America’s Mayor” and remember Giuliani was a considered a serious Presidential candidate in 2007 challenging for the Republican nomination before losing to McCain. The USA sure dodged a bullet there and gotta wonder if he was always this bad and we just didn’t know or if something since changed him into the utterly, creepy, revolting, sleazy, laughingstock – except just vomit-worthy – slimeball that he’s now (?) become.

  17. Jim Balter says

    I don’t buy much of this but I hope the jury does. Considering how many people bought Cohen’s clever setup of Ghouliani in his film (he was tucking in his long shirttails that the actress had pulled out, not diddling himself) there’s a good chance they will. Ghouliani being found liable for things he didn’t actually do would be even more satisfying than if he did.

    Snarki @ 8
    We need an AI to analyse this without having episodes of exploding brains. It is like in the “Laundry” books they used an AI to read through Necronomicon.

  19. birgerjohansson says

    BTW the New York “zero tolerance” thing was BS.
    Giuliani took credit for crime-reducing policies implemented by his predecessors unrelated to zero tolerance.

    And Giuliani did not provide police and the fire department with radio equipment that could cross the departmental barrier.
    RG contributed to making 9/11 worse.

  20. rietpluim says

    I’m surprised to hear a Trumpeteer having Bill Clinton as an example.
    Then again, Giuliani didn’t choose the best of Clinton to be his example. He chose the worst and amplified it.

  21. wzrd1 says

    rietpluim, isn’t that the GOP specialty, choose the worst and amplify it? In megawatts.
    Any day, I expect to hear the GOP champion a new operation, Operation T4.

  22. Jim Balter says

    @23 It might be useful to actually read your own citation:

    There’s nothing in the film that proves Giuliani’s intentions, and there are enough places where the audio and editing could have been manipulated to make the encounter seem creepier than it actually was—I haven’t even gotten into the ominous music—that it would be unwise to draw a definitive conclusion that Giuliani was attempting to seduce Tutar. (It may be relevant to note here that the 76-year-old and his third wife divorced last year, and that he has a girlfriend.)

    I replayed the scene repeatedly in slo-mo and observed that she pulled out his shirttails for no apparent reason while unclipping the mic and he tucked them back in. I was prepared and eager to believe the worst of him but it simply isn’t there … and I’m far from the only one who despises him but determined that it was a setup. He’s a vile disgusting ghoul who deserves to lose everything, which is why I don’t care whether Dunphy’s accusations are true but am happy to have people less intellectually honest believe that they are. Carry on.

  23. Howard Brazee says

    They’re proud of what they’re doing. Trump implies that he’s been doing everything we’ve accused him of — to his adoring supporters who think he’s a real man.

  24. StevoR says

    @28. Jim Balter : ( Giuliani is -ed) “.. a vile disgusting ghoul who deserves to lose everything, which is why I don’t care whether Dunphy’s accusations are true but am happy to have people less intellectually honest believe that they are.”

    Okay but I’m not sure why you seemingly don’t believe Noelle Dunphy here. You’ve gven reason to think that the Borat scene is a set up and edit and not what it appears but not why you think Dunphy’s claism are false.

  25. StevoR says

    ^ Let alone why it would be “intellectually dishonest” to believe her. Seriously?

  26. brightmoon says

    I wasn’t living in nyc when Giuliani was mayor and I remember being shocked at the cruelty of some of his policies . It upset me because if I had been living there at the time , I probably would have voted for him. After that I was not on team Giuliani . When he became one of Dolt45’s lawyers , I thought he was a damn fool not a thug. Nice to know I was mistaken. He is a thug

  27. zetopan says

    @3: “Wait, if Giuliani or Trump get Into that machine from The Fly, things could get one order of magnitude more gross.”

    The advantage for those two is that no flies would be needed for the input. Instead, you get machines completely full of sewage flies on the output.

  28. StevoR says

    @32. brightmoon : Actually I’d say both. Among other things.

    @ Jim Balter : So no answer for why you don’t believe Noelle Dunphy? Disappointed in you now since I hoped to get at least some reply either giving reasons why you think that or an apology for not believing the victim here as needs to be the rule in my view.

  29. Silentbob says

    @ ^

    Pull your fucking head in mate, they never said anything about not believing her; and nobody owes you any kind of reply whatsoever – this isn’t your blog, and you’re at best barely tolerated. You’ve been banned from half of FtB. Don’t push your luck.

  30. StevoR says

    @ ^ Silentbob : Jim Balter’s words – readable upthread – were “.. I don’t care whether Dunphy’s accusations are true but am happy to have people less intellectually honest believe that they are.”

    To me, and I think most people, that at least strongly implies that he does not believe Noelle Dunphy. Doesn’t suggesting that (only?) “those less intellectually honest” (i.e. intellectually dishonest) think Dunphy’s account is true imply that to you too?

    I will grant you and Jim Balter that the Borat movie scene involving Giuliani apparently masturbating was probably misleading and a set up and in that specific case he very likely wasn’t doing what it looked after editing like he was doing. This does not seem pertinent to Noelle Dunphy’s different case.

    Of course this isn’t my blog. It is PZ Myers one. However, asking a question about what another commenter said in their comment in its comments thread is hardly unreasonable or implying blog ownership nor is expecting a reply that answers that question or responds to it.

    It is a big exaggeration to claim I have been banned from half of FTB although to my eternal shame and regret I have previously been banned from a couple of blogs here. Your apparent anger at me here surprises and baffles me.

  31. chigau (違う) says

    StevoR has been unbanned from this very blog.
    Which is why you can see him posting here.
