Can Rudy Giuliani really go anywhere these days without making an embarrassing scene? Fresh off nine hours of testimony before the congressional committee investigating January 6, the once-respected former New York mayor and mob prosecutor was marching in the Celebrate Israel parade Sunday behind the new New York City mayor, Eric Adams, when he decided to step off the route to shout at some hecklers. Naturally the scene was caught on video, where you can watch the man President Donald Trump enlisted to overturn the 2020 election, call someone a “jackass” and a “brainwashed asshole.” Classy! 

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
