Rudy Giuliani lashes out at Mueller report and praises AG Barr on Fox News

Published

on

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s television defense attorney, pushed back against criticism of Attorney General Bill Barr during a Saturday night appearance with Fox News personality Jeanine Pirro.

The former mayor of New York City said criticism of Barr was unfounded.

“Because if you just look at Bill Barr and you listen to him and you look at his background, this looks like completely phony political garbage,” he said.

“Somebody on there — I don’t know if it was Nadler or somebody else — called him a political hack. That’s ridiculous,” he argued.

“He was confirmed unanimously when [George H.W. Bush] nominated him, should’ve been confirmed unanimously now,” he argued.

“It was like 93 to 7, something crazy like that,” Pirro claimed.

“Okay, so pretty close to unanimous,” Giuliani replied.

The actual vote was 54 to 45.

Giuliani suggested that were it not for the media, Barr would be “getting praised today for having restored a sense of law, justice, and sanity to what had become a media circus.”

‘Manic, unhinged and unnerving’: MSNBC host warns that Trump’s erratic behavior has ‘crossed the threshold’

Published

on

MSNBC guest host John Heilemann warned on Thursday that President Donald Trump’s behavior has been “manic, unhinged, and unnerving” in recent days — and some fear it will only get worse.

Heilemann was filling in for Nicolle Wallace on “Deadline: White House.”

He noted at the top of the show that Trump’s behavior has driven a consensus this week that he’s even less even-keeled than usual — which is saying a lot.

“The world is reeling and offering a collective judgment of O-M-G and W-T-F,” Heilmann said. He then played a clip of Trump’s bizarre, belligerent, and blatantly racist comments. He claimed that “no one can be trusted,” that Jews who vote for Democrats are “disloyal,” and that he is “the Chosen One.”

Trump is going off the rails because he fears prosecution if he loses re-election: MSNBC’s Morning Joe and Mika

Published

on

President Donald Trump's recent outbursts have been triggered by his all-consuming fears about the economy tanking his re-election chances, according to MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.

The president's behavior has been even more erratic than usual this week, the "Morning Joe" hosts agreed, and they believe he's worried about his sagging poll numbers and a possible recession on the horizon.

"That 'genius' is at a 36 percent now," Scarborough said. "You've actually been saying for the past week or two that you believe that even his more unbalanced behavior that's been noted by The Atlantic, and it's been noted by Jonathan Lemire and the Associated Press, and it's been noted by Gene (Robinson), and it's been noted by conservatives.

Trump has been ‘insulated’ by his wealth to never have to learn from his mistakes: biographer

Published

on

President Donald Trump's inherited wealth has meant he's never had to learn from his mistakes, Trump biographer Tim O'Brien told MSNBC's Brian Williams on Thursday.

"Bloomberg Opinion writer and our next guest Tim O’Brien writes today, 'Yes, of course, you need a certain kind of appalling narcissism to be comfy promoting yourself as heaven-sent in a televised press briefing and as a deity on Twitter. It’s doubly unhinged when you’re doing this as president,'" Williams said. "He goes on 'The Trump of the past few weeks is the same disordered figure of the past several decades with, I suspect, a big dollop of something new blended in: unbridled and unmanageable panic.'"
