A federal judge in Pennsylvania not only ruled against Trump, he wiped out Rudy Giuliani and coldly stopped Trump in Pennsylvania.
Marc C. Elias described the judge's decision as Giuliani getting his ass kicked in court:
To non-attorneys, this looks like the president's legal effort is being completely kicked in the ass. “Pic.twitter.com/uGrTVHT0LX

The intro to the judge's opinion is a must:

Rudy Giuliani was shot down on every single point he made. The judge pointed out that the Trump campaign lacked both evidence and strong legal arguments when attempting to disenfranchise seven million Pennsylvania voters.
Here's a video from NBC News summarizing how badly Giuliani fared:

Giuliani is not a constitutional attorney, and in some countries he is not even a lawyer. Rudy argues this case because no constitutional attorney worth anything will touch Trump's legal challenges in the election.
Rudy Guiliani has more than lost. He single-handedly ended Trump's efforts to block the certification of the results in Pennsylvania.
Trump's claims are unfounded and unfounded. The Pennsylvania judgment is what happens when a frivolous lawsuit is brought to the court by one of the worst semi-legal attorneys.
Pennsylvania will confirm its results on Monday as a large legal door slammed on Trump's face.
