In other news, Rudy Giuliani has resigned from his law firm Greenberg Traurig, probably because Giuliani is a whacko-bird who should be put out to pasture.

In related news, Greenberg Truarig says Rudy was not speaking for them when he started making wild excuses for Michael Cohen.

“That was money that was paid by his lawyer, the way I would do, out of his law firm funds,” Giuliani told Fox News on May 2. “Michael would take care of things like this like I take care of this with my clients. I don't burden them with every single thing that comes along. These are busy people.” [...]

“We cannot speak for Mr. Giuliani with respect to what was intended by his remarks,” a spokeswoman, Jill Perry, told the New York Times. “Speaking for ourselves, we would not condone payments of the nature alleged to have been made or otherwise without the knowledge and direction of a client.

Finally, Fox News and the Trump family are now figuratively and literally in bed together.

    I think Giuliani was using cliche “soap opera” behavior of powerful men paying off women they’ve slept with. “Y’know how it is. Amirite?”

      Yeah, except an actual law firm with actual lawyers said “No; that’s not actually how it is.”

        I don’t Giuliani expected them to do that. Except the “real lawyers” knew the “real consequences” of what he was saying and wanted nothing to do with it.

    The Trump administration’s defense without the ham handed charm.
