Trump was reportedly particularly upset about off-the-rails appearance at the Washington headquarters of the Republican National Committee last week by his wild, long-time personal attorney and friend Rudy Giuliani, who’s leading the failed effort to overturn the presidential election.
As Giuliani ranted about baseless accusations of election fraud, what appeared to be something like hair dye began dripping down his face. One Twitter wag called it a “cranial oil leak.”
Legal team member Sidney Powell was sidelined Sunday after she suggested at the same press conference — without a shred of proof — that Venezuela, Cuba, Antifa, George Soros, the Clinton Foundation and the late Hugo Chávez rigged the election for Joe Biden.
Detractors on Twitter pointed out that Trump chose Giuliani to lead his legal team.
They also noted that the president is quite capable of looking bad without any help.
For once, he's on the money...and the biggest fool of them all hired them. pic.twitter.com/wm4jL6QmoB

Somewhere along the line someone confused "represent Trump" with "imitate Trump." What we're seeing is the result of bad method acting.

Here we are, nearing the end of the Trump Error, and Trump still thinks other people make him look bad.
No @realDonaldTrump, you make yourself look bad, repeatedly.
The legal team you have chosen, hair dye sweat & all, just confirms that.

This is the worst post election behavior that our country has ever witnessed.

In fairness to the legal team, their problem isn't that they're bad lawyers but that they are unethical lawyers for agreeing to bring lawsuits that are not just weak, but utterly without merit. What makes Trump look bad isn't his lawyers but his pursuit of bullshit lawsuits.

Trump doesn't need The Gang That Couldn't Sue Straight to make him look bad.
He's doing fine all by himself.

What tipped him off? The buttdialing? The Borat scene? The Landscaping press conference? The cranial oil leak?
