MSNBC’s Katy Tur mocks Giuliani’s ‘truth isn’t truth’ walkback: He can’t overcome the credibility problem Trump has

Published

MSNBC’s Katy Tur had trouble holding back the laughter as they discussed Rudy Giuliani’s latest attempts to defend Donald Trump from Robert Mueller’s investigation, and his subsequent walkback of his “truth isn’t truth” line amid renewed attacks on former FBI chief James Comey this weekend.

Speaking to reporter Kristen Welker, Tur asked if the president’s legal team ‘seriously believe that calling James Comey a leaker is going to be enough to overcome the credibility problem that the president himself has.’ She added that the Washington Post has compiled an exhaustive list of the president’s misstatements, obfuscations, and outright lies. ‘He has over 4,000 false, misleading claims since he has just been president, Tur said in clear disbelief. ‘That’s like over six and a half or seven and a half times a day.’

Welker responded by listing a series of inaccurate statements by Giuliani about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump Jr’s awareness of what Russia was offering, saying ‘there were a lot of contradictions and things that Rudy Giuliani may be walking back today.’

‘I’ve heard enough’: Representative refuses to ask Lewandowski questions because it’s giving him ‘a platform’

Published

on

In a brief moment of the Corey Lewandowski hearing Tuesday, Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) refused to allow the top Trump advisor any more time to promote himself or his political campaign.

She probed whether President Donald Trump had ever promised to pardon Lewandowski, which he refused to answer.

"The president did indicate that he’s going to support your Senate campaign. Didn’t he?" Scanlon asked. But Lewandowski said he wasn't sure.

"Okay. Well, I just want to know for the record when Mr. Lewandowski asked for the committee to give him a little break an hour and a half, two hours ago, he took the time during that recess to launch his Senate campaign website with a tweet," she continued. "And I think that fact says an awful lot about the witness’ motivation to appear here today and I’ve heard enough. I yield back."
