Sounds like no new news repackaged as blockbuster news to distract from Jr's testimony news.

Further proof that Rudy isn't a lawyer, he just plays one on TV: He's talking to fucking TMZ.

TMZ: Rudy Giuliani: No way Trump can be indicted...even if he shoots someone

They got him on camera at the airport saying exactly that. :rotflmao:

Yep. Mueller has no sense AT ALL of the implications for democracy of his investigation. Thanks for that insight, Rudy. :sarcastic:

@tribelaw
Rudy says Mueller told him DOJ guidelines prevent indicting sitting POTUS. Rudy’s claims carry no weight & add zero to what’s already known & there’s no constitutional reason special counsel cdn’t get a criminal indictment, seal it, & hold trial later — with or w/out impeachment

According to the @NYDailyNews, Giuliani or his staffers “doored” the guy. No major injuries; bicyclist treated on scene. Poor guy, though at least he’s got a helluva story.

Nope. It was held in place by his head being up his ass.

I was wondering if his driver was distracted by all the tv cameras in his face.

As a cyclist (and an atheist, for the added irony), I can say unequivocally that there is not a Hell hot enough for people who door cyclists.

Does "door" imply a deliberate act?

In my non-lawyer opinion, if you could prove it was deliberate, that would be assault. If it was an "accident" then the person opening the door would still be civilly liable. I also cycle, but much less than before.

Rudy isn't the victim.

It's frequently accidental. But it can have fatal consequences - a very, very good family friend (in the "more like an aunt to me than most of my biological aunts" category) died when she was knocked under a bus as a result of being doored.

Sekrit Stuffs!
If Chris Hayes mentions knowing someone who died as a result of getting doored when he reports it later, we're talking about the same person.

:cry:

Some drivers around here do things to cyclists intentionally and pretend it was accidental - oops! Sorry (not sorry). I imagine some dooring is in this category.

I almost accidentally doored someone once. I street-park on a street that gets a lot of car traffic but not so much bicycle traffic. I had checked my rearview mirror and had just opened my door a crack when I saw him out of my peripheral vision and slammed my door back shut. Scared the crap out of me. And probably him too. Now I always look over my shoulder before opening the door. Bicyclists tend to blend into the background more than, say, a car, and can easily be in your blindspot. While I despise Giuliani, I do think it could very well have been an accident.

I'm a cyclist, and am worried about both getting doored and also doing that to a fellow cyclist. The other thing I do as a safety precaution, in case I don't see someone who's moving really fast, is to open the car door about 3-4" and wait two seconds before opening it the rest of the way. That would give anyone who I missed in scanning the mirror time to react and plan an evasive maneuver before a potential impact.

Somewhere, they’re taught to open the door with the opposite hand, which forces you to look over your shoulder for bikes.

The Netherlands.

It's called the Dutch Reach.
