As scandal swirls around Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, even Fox News host Harris Faulkner is wondering if it’s time for the man once known as “America’s Mayor” to go.
In a Fox News segment Friday, Faulkner discussed how the Trump White House was enduring fresh public relations headaches after Giuliani henchmen Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman were arrested this week on campaign-finance charges for allegedly funneling money from a Russian businessman into American elections.
“Let’s just cut to the chase, because as Americans are watching this across the country, they’re wondering, ‘Does this touch the president?'” Faulkner asked guest Jmail Jaffer, the current director of the national security law and policy program at George Mason University. “Is Rudy Giuliani becoming a liability for the White House?”
Jaffer responded by admitting that it’s “hard to know” and noted that Trump has stuck by Giuliani so far through thick and thin.
However, he suggested there are limits to the president’s patience.
“It’s becoming hard to know how long the president will stick with him,” he said. “It is becoming more and more challenging.”

‘Peter Navarro is a lunatic’: Trump advisor roasted for ‘insane’ MSNBC interview
White House advisor Peter Navarro was roasted on Friday after a bizarre interview on MSNBC where he pushed multiple conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 pandemic while attempting to deflect blame from the president.
Navarro serves as the director of trade and manufacturing policy and the National Defense Production Act policy coordinator.
Here's some of what people were saying about Navarro's interview with Ali Velshi:
Trump impersonator hilariously previews the president’s Mount Rushmore speech
On Friday, musician and Trump impersonator J-L Cauvin posted a video satirically previewing the president's Independence Day speech at Mount Rushmore.
"The Democrats want you to wear masks, but we don't need masks," said Cauvin, impersonating Trump's New York accent. "Everybody's feeling great — stop coughing! Everybody's feeling great. So healthy. Such great health."
"Democrats want to kill you and silence you," he continued.
He then delivered a parody rant against removing statues, which sources report Trump will make a central point of his speech. "Thomas Jefferson, that's another one they hate. Everyone makes mistakes, but he had African-American girlfriends!"
Texas GOP will proceed with in-person state convention in Houston this month
In light of the decision to go forward with an in-person convention with a new mask requirement, two sponsors announced they would drop out. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said he was hopeful that the organization would still reconsider.
The Texas GOP's executive committee voted Thursday night to proceed with plans to hold the party’s in-person convention in Houston later this month.
The State Republican Executive Committee, a 64-member body that serves as the governing board of the state party, voted 40-20 to approve the resolution supporting the in-person gathering. Thursday’s vote comes as the state grapples with a surge of coronavirus cases, with Houston serving as one of the country’s hot spots for the virus.
