Nudge nudge, wink wink, Bob’s your uncle.
No matter which side of the debate your are on we have to admit that Trump’s lawyer Rudy is acting and sounding like your crazy Uncle Bob…you know the one….he is the one that has an opinion on everything and is loud and usually wrong.
But is Rudy still Trump’s personal lawyer? The question for the week……..
Rudy Giuliani remains in the hot seat over his dealings in Ukraine for President Trump, with a reported federal investigation into his lobbying and his role in undermining the ex-American ambassador to Ukraine. Now, President Trump is not only saying he doesn’t know the two Giuliani associates who were arrested this week for campaign finance violations—he doesn’t even seem 100% sure what role Giuliani still plays in his sphere. As the president left the White House Friday to head to a rally in Louisiana, a reporter asked him if Giuliani was still his personal attorney, and Trump waffled a bit. “Well, I don’t know, I haven’t spoken to Rudy,” he responded. “I spoke to him yesterday briefly, uh, he’s a very good attorney, and he has been my attorney, yeah, sure.”
That’s all he said on that, but the Washington Post notes Giuliani had a more definitive answer. “Yes. I am still his attorney,” the ex-New York City mayor texted to the paper’s Josh Dawsey. A source said to be close to Trump’s legal team tells CNN that Giuliani is indeed still the president’s lawyer, but that he won’t be handling anything involving Ukraine. Giuliani’s own words to the news outlet: “There are no Ukraine issues. I finished that in March. I’m still representing him.” The White House declined to comment on the whole matter. Meanwhile, sources tell Politico that others in Trump’s sphere want Giuliani out of there, his “long-winded monologues” and “freewheeling accusations” a liability to the president. “Rudy Giuliani needs to stop talking,” an ex-campaign official says.
But The Donald does not sound so sure of it……
I hear people say that Rudy has been driven to these antics because of his failed presidential attempt……he had put all the goodwill of being the mayor of NYC on 9/11 and it was not enough…he was rudderless after that….
But I do not agree…I think he has always been a nut case he just has the chance now to make it more pronounced…..and to display his nutcase wisdom.
And I am not alone in this thought…..
I will be the hero! These morons—when this is over, I will be the hero…. Anything I did should be praised.”
These are the words of President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, speaking of the government operative who leaked information about the president’s conversations with the Ukrainian president that has led to impeachment proceedings. Out of context, they appear to be narcissistic ravings. In context, they are just another installment of the constant refrain Americans are used to hearing from the president’s lead defender. No matter how unhinged Giuliani sounds in one interview, the cameras go back to him again and again.
The regular media meltdowns have almost become a real-time comedy for US news consumers, although it has all taken a serious turn. He’s now the focus of the impeachment probes as well; two of his associates were recently arrested.
US media are asking: How could this happen? How did a two-term mayor of a major city, previously a famous federal prosecutor, and someone thought to be a future president, once lauded for reducing crime in New York City and serving as a rallying figure after the World Trade Center attacks, turn into such a primetime clown of the Trump era? How could a crime fighter become the center of criminal intrigue?
He has always thought the country owes him something for being the mayor of NYC on 9/11……
We owe him NOTHING! He is getting a feee ride on the taxpayer dime. Debt paid!
