Twitter Skewers Rudy Giuliani After Wild Interview With Chris Cuomo: ‘One Heck of a Sh*tshow’
Not a mere 48 hours after a relatively sedate interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham did Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani remind everyone that he’s still more than willing to drop the bombshells.
In a marathon showdown with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on New Day, Giuliani covered a huge amount of ground — contradicting the president about the presence of an informant in the Trump campaign, saying the president could indeed obstruct justice when others on President Donald Trump‘s legal team said he could not, and taking not-so-veiled swipes at Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Perhaps needless to say, Twitter had a field day breaking down this interview and excoriating Giuliani:
If that 45-minute CNN interview of Rudy Giuliani is any indication of how Trump would respond to a 3-hour sitdown with Mueller, whatever they negotiate is going to be one heck of a s***show.

Giuliani is flat-out lying to @ChrisCuomo but Cuomo is not having it. I hope somebody wipes down that table before the next guest.

Was once a HUGE fan of the former NYC mayor. The diminution of his credibility can only be described as … sad.

Rudy on CNN is wrong. OLC memo doesn’t say president is immune from “criminal process.”
President is immune from indictment and the prosecution of that indictment.
Subpoenas precede indictment.

Another take: Martha Stewart never would have gone to jail if she hadn’t lied to the FBI and obstructed justice. https://t.co/5n3v6dT0tO

Rudy Giuliani says he’s never heard of a subpoena for the president before, that it “never occurred to him.” Giuliani when asked about the president being subpoenaed in 1998: pic.twitter.com/rckK0lbHWb

She went to jail because she lied.
Giuliani is not good at this. https://t.co/jo0280bYAC

Virtually everything out of Rudy's mouth is ignorant misstatement of the law or a intentional lie. What is the utility of having him on and then reporting what he says as fact?
