Giuliani: I Was Hired To Say Some Bullshit

Last week, Trump's fake TV lawyer Rudy Giuliani called on the Justice Department to cancel special prosecutor Robert Mueller's investigation within the next 24 hours, but was that a serious attempt to end the investigation or just Giuliani running his mouth?

In his own words, that among his many other unhinged utterances was just part of the service he offers as a professional carnival barker.

“I didn’t think it would,” Giuliani told POLITICO with a laugh when asked about the Mueller inquiry’s still being very much an active investigation. “But I still think it should be.” [...]

“That’s what I’m supposed to do,” Giuliani explained on Monday. “What am I supposed to say? That they should investigate him forever? Sorry, I’m not a sucker.”

It's possible there will come a time when Giuliani finds himself on the other end of a subpoena and we'll learn that he isn't actually practicing law or representing Trump in any legal sense just like Michael Cohen wasn't really representing Trump. And Giuliani appears to be doing even less than Michael Cohen did. Giuliani's responsibilities include appearing on television and calling reporters from Yankee stadium to run his mouth a little more.

Media outlets that are considering running with a scoop provided to them by Giuliani should consider his public admission that he's just making shit up because that's what Trump hired him to do.

    Investigate trump forever…I love the sound of that.

      I would prefer a relatively short investigation and a rather long incarceration.

      • Draxiar

        Aye, that would be better.

    Someone needs to tell Rudy Giuliani his fifteen minutes have been up for a very long time. At this point, he’s just embarrassing himself.

    After Chris Cuomo played a clip of Giuliani holding the exact opposite opinion regarding presidents being subpoenaed durring the 90s and Giuliani throwing a fit live on air I noticed other news shows didn’t play that clip when interviewing him. So I don’t have any faith that the news media will ever start treating him like the sideshow he clearly is.

      Yeah, well, it’s only relevant when “both sides” do it. They’re just waiting to find some liberal version of Giuliani to pop up.

        Rudy Giuliani is the Katrina Pierson of 2018.
