Morning Joe Breaks Down ‘Train Wreck’ Giuliani’s Media Blitz: ‘He Would Fall Asleep’ in Meetings


Rudy Giuliani‘s stunning media blitz continued over the weekend — as the former New York City Mayor sat down for wild interviews with Jeanine Pirro and George Stephanopoulos, among others. Giuliani, for his part, thinks it’s all going well for him on TV. But one prominent critic begs to differ.

Monday on Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough absolutely shredded Giuliani for making freewheeling comments from which the White House has already tried to distance itself. Particularly, Scarborough took issue with Giuliani’s talk about the potential release of three North Korean prisoners.

“Not only did he unravel more playing stand-in Secretary of State, spitting on prepared remarks,” Scarborough said. “It seemed completely out of control.”

Scarborough noted that instead of stand-in Secretary of State, there was a time where Giuliani was being considered for the actual job.

“We have to remember this is a man that the White House worked furiously to get as Secretary of State, even though they were admitting privately during the transition that Rudy Giuliani had lost quite a few steps,” Scarborough said. “He would fall asleep in the middle of meetings — actually five minutes into meetings — and his head would be rested on his chest. That he wasn’t completely all there. Those were the words of Donald Trump and those around him back two years ago.”

Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski added, “The guy seems to be a train wreck.”
