Ever since the day former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani joined Donald Trump’s legal team, he has caused controversy and even more chaos for the president. Instead of helping Trump get out of his mess with Stormy Daniels over the $130K payment to keep her silent, Giuliani has only spilled more information and made a mess of everything.
Trump very much summed up what this entire ridiculous process has been like with Giuliani and hit the nail on the head for once. In speaking with reporters, Trump answered a question about Giuliani’s Israel trip. In his reply, Trump pretty much said that Giuliani was “great,” except that he wasn’t really — and it very much sounded like Trump was rating Giuliani for how he’d totally botched his job over the last several weeks. Trump said:
Look, Rudy’s great, but Rudy is Rudy.”
Trump tried to save a little bit of face with his next comment:
But Rudy is doing a very good job, actually. He’s doing a very good [job].”
Guiliani had recently caused a sh*tstorm by dissing Daniels and disrespecting every woman working in the adult film industry — conveniently forgetting that Trump’s own wife, First Lady Melania Trump, has a history of posing nude. He said:
I respect women—beautiful women and women with value —but a woman who sells her body for sexual exploitation I don’t respect. Tell me what damage she suffered. Someone who sells his or her body for money has no good name.
If you’re going to sell your body for money, you just don’t have a reputation. I may be old fashioned, I dunno.”
Trump shot himself in the foot today when those comments were brought up as he said, “I’m not going to disagree with him on that.”
Also thanks to Giuliani, Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti has gotten more than enough ammunition to destroy Trump and his legal team — particularly over these most recent misogynistic comments.
But let’s not forget one of Giuliani’s first f*ck ups — the time he went on television and stated Trump had been aware of the $130K paid to Daniels to keep her quiet about her affair with Trump, even though Trump had denied knowing about the payment. Trump had to respond that it was a mistake and Giuliani needed to “get his facts straight.”
Every day, Trump gets a taste of his own medicine with Giuliani as the lawyer repeatedly goes off the rails and screws everything up. It’s no wonder Trump is so lacking in enthusiasm when talking about his unhinged lawyer.
