Trump Considers Sidelining Theatrical Giuliani from TV Interviews

Trump's lawyers tried to walk the president through a practice interview with Mueller. It didn't go well.

Trump's new lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, told CBS that Mueller's team rejected the Trump team's request to conduct the interview in writing, but the former New York City mayor said they will continue to negotiate with investigators about the terms of the interview once he has a few weeks to catch up on facts of the investigation.

"After 36 hours of wild, freewheeling, nearly unhinged interviews on the president's behalf last week - during which he directly contradicted statements the president made about the payment to Stormy Daniels - to the point where the president himself had to say Giuliani is new, he doesn't know all the facts - what did Giuliani do?" "We know the president didn't pay Cohen to pay Daniels, except he did, but from a general legal fund, which didn't exist, unless it does".

"They lie constantly", Meyers said.

As for Trump's legal team, we may just need to be patient.

"If that doesn't give you nightmares, I give up", Kimmel said. He said that despite Trump's openness to meeting with special counsel Robert Mueller, he would strongly advise against it. "No one knows what's going on, which means reasonable doubt".

But Giuliani, making the rounds of the Sunday news shows, suggested that Cohen paid off more women during the campaign, saying "I have no knowledge of that but I would think, if it was necessary, yes".

"You can plan and plan and plan your short-term and long-term communications strategies, but when you are faced with the reality of this President's mode of operating you might as well just throw the plans out the window", the source added.

After a series of disastrous interviews with Sean Hannity, Fox & Friends, the Washington Post, the New York Times, Jeanine Pirro, and ABC News, among others, Rudy Giuliani - President Trump's new lead attorney - has acknowledged he has no idea what he's talking about.

To which Giuliani responded, "Funneled it through the law firm, and the president repaid him". The next day, Trump tweeted almost a dozen times. Another official said without any internal White House coordination over Giuliani's television appearances, there was little hope of providing him with accurate information. Aside from concern over the negotiations themselves, the officials said Giuliani's statements could lead to confusion over who is speaking on behalf of the United States government. Instead, Giuliani was relaying a loosely sourced story that had been repeated on conservative media outlets with no confirmation from the White House.

"We got Kim Jong Un impressed enough to be releasing three prisoners today", Giuliani told Fox News.

Officials inside the West Wing, who have been exasperated by Giuliani's string of brazen cable news appearances, have joked among themselves that he has unofficially replaced Michael Anton, the National Security Council spokesman who quit last month.

"The fact that Donald Trump brought this guy in two years later despite his own reservations about him - nearly two years ago - that's not any - it's not 3-D chess", Scarborough argued.
