Rudy Giuliani resorted to acting out a scene from the movie "My Cousin Vinny" on Thursday in an effort to convince reporters that President-elect Joe Biden had illegally won the election.

"Did you all watch 'My Cousin Vinny?'" Giuliani asked a group of reporters in Washington, D.C. "You know, the movie? It's one of my favorite law movies because he comes from Brooklyn. And the nice lady who said she saw [the crime] and then he says to her, 'How many fingers do I got up?' and she says, 'Three.'"

"Well, she was too far away," he continued, comparing the witness in the movie to Republican poll watchers. "These people were further away than 'My Cousin Vinny' was from the witness. They couldn't see a thing."
