Watching clips of Rudy Giuliani’s bumbling and “insane” performances on both NBC and CNN on Sunday morning, the entire panel on AM Joy was beside themselves with laughter and disbelief that he was once a respected U.S. attorney.
After host Joy Reid shared clips from the interviews with CNN’s Jake Tapper and NBC’s Chuck Todd, commentator Tara Dowdell marveled, “Every week, Rudy Giuliani gets on national TV and confesses another crime.”
“I expect him in two weeks to say ‘Trump is guilty of everything’,” she quipped to laughter from Reid.
Journalist E.J. Dionne joined the pile-on after Reid stated, “I don’t understand a lawyer, a former prosecutor gets on TV and says these [things].”
“Rudy Giuliani was a U.S. attorney, a prosecutor?” Dionne recalled. “If there is a trial on all of this, I think the whole day of the trial will be jurors watching old Rudy Giuliani’s tapes and clips. It is just astounding what has happened to Rudy Giuliani, so it is kind of a shame what’s happening.”
AM Joy regular Kurt Bardella — a former Republican who split with the party over Trump — wondered if the president and Giuliani even communicate with each other.
“It is almost like, did Rudy talk to Donald Trump at all?” he asked with a smirk. “This has got to be the worst lawyer in the history of mankind. He should be disbarred for being such a terrible lawyer. Every time he goes on television, he contradicts himself — and not what he said a week ago — in the same conversation he’ll contradict himself. It’s insane.”

Trump’s disordered personality fits into a disturbing historical pattern
I wasn’t surprised by Donald Trump’s rage-tweet attack on Reps. Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib, any more than I was surprised by the maturity and sobriety of their response. After all, Trump’s racism is legendary, and telling them to “go back where you came from” is not just textbook racism, it’s a schoolyard bully’s taunt. And a racist schoolyard bully is the sum and substance of what Trump is.
Trump tweets deranged rant about Mueller and the FBI as hearing draws nearer
On Monday, President Donald Trump tweeted an angry invective against former special counsel Robert Mueller, who is slated to testify before the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees on Wednesday, proclaiming once again — falsely — that the report showed "NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION!"
He followed up this outburst with complaints about a litany of villains frequently promoted by Fox News, including the Hillary Clinton campaign and two former FBI agents who were fired after having a affair and who supposedly were biased against him in text messages (though no evidence has ever shown they improperly influenced Mueller's investigation):
Trump busted for lying about not having ‘talking points’ about Dem congresswomen
President Donald Trump furiously denied reporting that his aides had supplied him with "reams of opposition research" about four Democratic congresswomen.
The president has been lobbing racist attacks at the first-year lawmakers since last weekend, and the Washington Post reported that aides had supplied the background research to urge Trump to question their patriotism and political ideas, rather than calling on them to leave the country.
"The Amazon Washington Post front page story yesterday was total Fake News," Trump tweeted Monday morning. "They said 'Advisors wrote new talking points and handed him reams of opposition research on the four Congresswomen.'"
