On Wednesday, October 19, in the year of our Lord 2016, a terrible thing happened.
But before that, another terrible thing happened.
During an exchange with billionaire Trump enemy and Girl Meets World cameo appearance-maker Mark Cuban, former New York City mayor and Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani reached out with his dusty little anger mitt and touched CNN's Erin Burnett on the arm.
Vic Berger caught the moment.
(There is also an extended clip of Giuliani touching Burnett and then leaving his hand there.)
Upon watching this video I gasped, "Oh my god." Then I shared it with everyone in my office and listened for their screams. (At least one editor made what he described as an "insane croaky gasp.")
Now you must watch it, too.
To quote Courtney Love, some day you will ache like I ache. And that day is today, the day I made you watch Rudy Giuliani touching a woman who happens to be sitting near him because it is her job.
