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.”

Iran says seized British-flagged tanker ‘free’ to leave
Iran said on Monday that a British-flagged oil tanker is "free" to leave more than two months after it was seized in the Gulf.
"The legal process has finished and based on that the conditions for letting the oil tanker go free have been fulfilled and the oil tanker can move," government spokesman Ali Rabiei told a news conference.
He did not specify when the Swedish-owned vessel would be allowed to set sail.
The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps surrounded the Stena Impero with attack boats before rappelling onto the deck of the tanker in the Strait of Hormuz on July 19.
MSNBC’s Morning Joe fact-checks Trump’s ‘slimy’ lies about Biden: ‘He’s rigging the election!’
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough threw cold water on President Donald Trump's accusations against Joe Biden, as the Ukraine scandal continues to widen.
The "Morning Joe" host ripped the president for pressuring Ukraine's president to dig up dirt on Biden and then leaning on states to cancel Republican primaries to snuff out three challengers' campaigns.
"You talk about an inside game, rigging the process, and we talked about how Donald Trump is rigging the process on the Republican side to make sure that as many states as possible cancel democratic elections for the primary," Scarborough said. "I mean, he's learning from Vladimir Putin the way you get 100 percent of the vote is you just cancel the elections, and that's what Donald Trump is getting Republican operatives to do across the country."

Global women's rights advocates raised alarm Monday after a leaked letter showed the Trump administration is pressuring U.N. member nations to join an international anti-abortion coalition.
