THREAD: A random kid faked a text message between him and Rudy Giuliani and is now claiming it's "satire" after dozens of blue checks, including names like Rachel Maddow, fell for it.

Here are a few of the quote tweets... who knows how many more blue check RTs there are...

So glad you mentioned this! This was also just proven to be a hoax. Giuliani was laying back to remove his mic and there was nothing more to it than that. That rumor was also started by a random account followed by dozens of journos piling on.
