I don’t watch The Masked Singer, but I read that Rudy Giuliani just got voted off the program last week. He was a singing Jack-in-the-Box.

What was Rudy doing on the show? The ex-major said it was to set an example for his granddaughter to encourage her to “try everything — even things that are completely unlike you and unlikely.”

A better question is what the producers were thinking when they followed up a performance by Sarah Palin dressed as a Bear with Giuliani. Suspended from practicing law in New York and Washington, D.C. due to filing false information in a lawsuit to overturn the 2020 election, Giuliani can charitably be described as “disgraced.” He also appeared ready to have sex with a young woman in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

The days of Giuliani being a respected ex-mayor of New York are over. Rudy sold his reputation and integrity to Donald Trump. They’re gone. Little is left of what Giuliani once appeared to be.

It is the right of the American public to watch trash like The Masked Singer or Dancing with the Stars. But why invite political has-beens and losers like Sarah Palin, Sean Spicer, and Giuliani to compete?

Is some producer, probably at Fox, thinking of how cool it would be to have a season of Dancing with the Stars featuring Proud Boys or Oath Keepers? How about Lauren Boebert for The Masked Singer dressed as a handgun? Or Paul Gosar as a big tooth? Or Matt Gaetz costumed as the type of criminal that would transport underage girls across state lines for sex. What might that costume look like?
