MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said Rudy Giuliani told Americans that President Donald Trump’s campaign had engaged in a conspiracy with Russia to rig the 2016 election.
The “Morning Joe” host was gobsmacked by Giuliani’s appearance Wednesday night on CNN, where the former New York City mayor shifted the goalposts again in the investigation of Trump campaign ties to Russia.
“We attack Rudy way too much, but one thing, you got to admit the guy is consistent, right?” Scarborough said. “‘No collusion, no collusion, no collusion.’ The guy — like, what’s this? What’s this? ‘No collusion’ — that’s his middle name, they’re going to put on his tombstone.”
But the president’s attorney changed his tune, telling CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that he had never said there was no collusion between the campaign and Russia, and instead insisted there had been no evidence that Trump himself had engaged in collusion.
“His eyes bulged after he said that,” Scarborough said. “My eyes just bulged, as well.”
Scarborough said the admission was stunning.
“Rudy Giuliani just told America and the world that Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia, full stop,” he said.

‘Go back to Harlem!’: Florida woman has n-word laced meltdown after bumping black woman’s shopping cart
On Saturday, the Atlanta Black Star reported an incident in Florida, in which a white woman screamed racial slurs at a black woman at a Publix supermarket in Miami after their shopping carts jostled each other.
After the woman allegedly banged into Nicki Johnson's cart, she refused to apologize, saying, "I didn't hit you with my cart, and f**k you, you f**king n****r."
Johnson whipped out her cell phone camera, and began recording the incident, saying "You, why don't you call me a n****r again?"
"You thinking I'm sorry?" snapped the woman. "Let me tell you something, I don't have to call you anything. Get away from me, I will call security and there are surveillance videos. Get away from me!"
‘I’m a nurse, what are you?’: Tennessee lawmaker humiliates anti-choice activists in brutal public grilling
Anti-choice activists in Tennessee were unprepared for the grilling they got from a Democratic Party lawmaker when making the case for a bill that would outlaw abortion before many women knew they were pregnant.
One of the speakers in favor of the fetal heartbeat bill was Baptist Pastor Randy Davis, who was questioned by state Sen. Katrina Robinson (D-Memphis).
"How many women executive pastors do you have in your convention?" Robinson asked Davis. "Or senior pastors."
"None," Davis replied.
"So is it the same ideology that restricts access to women being able to lead a congregation that leads you all to support women not being able to make a medical decision about their body?" Robinson asked.
