Rudy Giuliani has only been on the job for about two weeks, but he has already managed to land on Trump's bad side according to Politico.
White House staffers who spoke to Politico say Giuliani has done the exact opposite of what Trump hired him to do.
The president has been griping to associates that Rudy Giuliani, his new personal attorney, has failed to shut down the Stormy Daniels hush money saga. And he has expressed frustration that Giuliani’s media appearances are raising more questions than they are answering, turning the story into a days-long drama capped by the admission Sunday that the president may have made similar payments to other women.
For now, White House aides said, Giuliani still has a direct line in to Trump – the two speak almost daily – and nobody in the West Wing is eager to insert themselves between the two irascible New Yorkers by yanking Giuliani off TV. But some aides said they expect the president to fire Giuliani if his behavior doesn’t change.
I would say the Stormy Daniels "saga" is bigger than ever thanks to Giuliani and may even be heading in new directions no one saw coming before Giuliani appeared on Fox News.
Speaking of which, the Associated Press also reported yesterday that Trump may prohibit Giuliani from appearing on TV.
Trump has begun questioning whether Giuliani, an old friend and former New York City mayor, should be sidelined from television interviews, according to two people familiar with the president’s thinking but not authorized to speak publicly about private discussions.
Trump also expressed annoyance that Giuliani’s theatrics have breathed new life into the Daniels story. It’s a concern shared by Trump allies who think Giuliani is only generating more legal and political trouble for the White House.
Trump only hires the best people.
