For years now Rudy Giuliani has come across as a right wing wino suffering from withdrawal hallucinations. The things he talks about are as crazy as can be. He’s ranted and raved about how President Obama was the cause of racism, and how every terrorist attack in the world had something to do with Hillary Clinton…oh and President Obama too. He simply sounds like a lunatic.
Considering that Donald Trump likes to lead through total chaos, it’s no surprise that he’d hire someone as crazy as Giuliani to be one of his new lawyers. And boy is Giuliani coming out of the crazy house swinging. He started his day today contradicting everything Trump has said about the Stormy Daniels payoff and even the firing of James Comey too. If Trump wants to look like a total liar, then Giuliani is working hard to make that happen.
Ever since story broke about the hush money payment to former adult film actresses Stormy Daniels, Trump tried to distance himself from the whole thing. Less than a month ago on Air Force One he denied that he knew anything about the payment, and put the full blame on Michael Cohen if any money really changed hands, reported the NY Times. Then Trump slipped up when he couldn’t keep his lies straight and he accidentally let it slip on a rambling, confusing phone interview on “Fox & Friends,” that Cohen did represent him in the Daniels case but “no campaign money was used” to pay her. Today Giuliani said Trump not only knew about the hush money, but get this…he even paid Michael Cohen back for it., telling Fox News’ Sean Hannity that the payment was perfectly legal and that no campaign money was used in the case. He said Trump funneled the money through a law firm. When people use the term “funneled” when discussing top secret payments it begins to sound very nefarious.
Giuliani also brought to the forefront one of Trump’s other big lies. Trump recently claimed that he didn’t fire James Comey because of the Russia investigation.
Slippery James Comey, the worst FBI Director in history, was not fired because of the phony Russia investigation where, by the way, there was NO COLLUSION (except by the Dems)!

But according to Giuliani today Trump was lying through his teeth, telling Hannity
‘He fired Comey because Comey would not, among other things, say that he wasn’t a target of the investigation,.’
Giuliani’s recent confessions that Donald Trump is a liar should surprise no one. What remains to be seen though is how Trump will react to one of his lawyers making him look like a lying fool. Trump likes it when people remain loyal to him, but it seems like Giuliani is anything but loyal.
Trump shouldn’t be surprised by the things Giuliani is saying. It’s hard to keep track of the many lies that have been told by those in the White House. One has to wonder if Giuliani will be the next lawyer leaving the Trump camp. After all, Trump has been having a very difficult time finding attorneys to represent him, so it remains to be seen if Trump will keep him.
