Joe Scarborough blasted Rudy Giuliani for his numerous media appearances last week on “Morning Joe” Monday.
“Now we have a man known as ‘America’s Mayor’, a man who did some pretty extraordinary things in New York, was viewed favorably by so many in the days after 9/11 — completely humiliating himself,” said Scarborough.
“There’s nobody around him to protect himself from himself and the loser is not only Donald Trump because of the mistakes he makes every time he goes out and starts talking about the legal case,” Scarborough continued. “But staff members inside the White House — beyond themselves that these two older gentlemen seem to be detached from the political reality they have to deal with and clean up every day.”
Later on the in show, co-host Mika Brzezinski compared the Giuliani spectacle to a “runaway beer truck.”
Since joining the Trump legal team, Giuliani has attracted attention for his series of bizarre interviews. Appearing with Fox News anchor Sean Hannity last week, Giuliani revealed that the president was aware of the Stormy Daniels payment and repaid his attorney Michael Cohen for the $130,000 outlay. Trump had previously publicly denied having any knowledge of it.
While many said it was a blunder, Giuliani insisted in a follow-up spot on “Fox & Friends” the next day that it was part of a plan to show that the payments were not campaign finance violations. However, that was contradicted on Friday by Trump, who told reporters at Andrews Air Force Base that Giuliani was still new to the legal team and was still getting up to speed with the facts.
