Noted critic of President Donald Trump, George Conway took aim at Rudy Giuliani on Friday for claiming that the alleged campaign finance violations facing the president were not a “big crime.”

Taking to Twitter later that same day, Conway posted a parodied version of the presidential oath that included Giuliani’s remarks, writing, “‘I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, except where nobody gets killed or robbed.’”
