President Donald Trump on Friday threw attorney Rudy Giuliani under the bus when he said that the former New York mayor had botched his story about the president reimbursing attorney Michael Cohen for hush payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels.
“Rudy is a great guy but he started a day ago,” Trump told reporters about Giuliani's infamous Wednesday night Fox News interview. “He’ll get his facts straight.”
Reacting to Trump's decision to completely contradict his own lawyer, panelists on CNN said they had never seen anything like what they just witnessed from any politician, let alone the president of the United States.
Host John Berman asked legal analyst Caroline Polisi for her take on the president's latest rambling statement -- and he noted that, "as an attorney, this has to make you cringe."
"It's just unbelievable, John, I've never seen anything like it," she said. "He's trying to have it both ways, saying 'Our story hasn't changed,' when, in fact, Rudy may have not been fully informed. I thought it was interesting that he repeated this familiar refrain that he's not a target of the entire Mueller investigation. Remember, he might not be a target because Robert Mueller is operation under the assumption... that a sitting president cannot be indicted."
