‘Our Interview Is Now OVER’: Giuliani Erupts on Fox’s Kennedy Over Biden, Shouts at Her for ‘Outrageous Defamation’


Rudy Giuliani exploded in a heated interview with Fox Business host Kennedy Tuesday night when she threw out a comparison between his actions and those of the author of the infamous Trump dossier.

Kennedy opened her show by saying Biden “should explain himself to the American people” on his son Hunter’s foreign business dealings because “we do have a right to know what he and his son were doing and how much they made doing it.”

“Instead, he keeps dodging questions,” she added.

She spoke with Giuliani about when he got the information he has touted about Hunter Biden and the laptop in question. Giuliani said “we’re constantly finding new documents” regarding the Biden family.

Kennedy asked him about his work with Andriy Derkach, “who’s believed to be a Russian asset,” and asked Giuliani about the claim from Derkach about a supposed second laptop.

“Why is he saying that? Because he did have other laptops. I know of two others that are in the possession of other people,” Giuliani said.

As Kennedy questioned Giuliani about the circumstances of him obtaining and sharing this information, and Giuliani claimed there’s photos of underage girls on the computer, Kennedy said, “We will have the people in our news departments verify all of this, because it sounds like there may be something here that is fishy that is causing Americans — giving them pause, and now there’s stuff that might’ve been completely adulterated over the 18 months, and some could say that you were acting like Christopher Steele, that you were abstracting information because…”

The comparison to Steele, author of the infamous Trump dossier, really set Giuliani off.

“You’ve got to be kidding me. I was acting like Christopher Steele?!” he said.

“That’s what it sounds like,” Kennedy said.

“You better apologize for that,” Giuliani fired back.

“I’m accusing you of acting in a capacity to Christopher Steele, and that you were going back and forth between Ukraine and the United States…” Kennedy said as Giuliani went off.

“Similar to a CROOK?!” Giuliani said. “What you are saying is an outrageous defamation of me, of my reputation! Every single thing is here! And I want you to look at it, and then you apologize to me!”

“I came on your show in good faith to give you evidence that has been withheld from the American people. And I get defamed. That is outrageous!” he continued.

“Alright, you you still working on behalf of the president?” Kennedy asked.

“I think our interview is now over. I don’t talk to people who accuse me…” he started.

Kennedy jumped in briefly and referenced the last time they appeared on camera together.

“This may be the last time we’ll be on camera, ’cause I don’t let people call me Christopher Steele, I’m sorry. Christopher Steele is a criminal! You’re asserting that I’m a criminal!”

“I’m asserting that eastern Europe is a cesspool and American politics…” Kennedy started.

“I did not get them from eastern Europe,” Giuliani said. “You are now repeating lying propaganda from the Democratic National Committee and the crooked Biden family.”

At one point he said, “You think [the New York Post is] printing false material? You think Rupert Murdoch would let them print false material? Just because I gave it to them. You think I’m an idiot that I’m going to print false material?”
