While having lunch at a crowded restaurant in New York on Saturday, President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, was overheard discussing plans to launch a podcast to provide analysis on the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry against Trump.
“Many Americans want to hear directly from Rudy Giuliani,” said Giuliani spokesperson Christianné Allen, who confirmed to CNN that he was indeed discussing the podcast. “He is considering several options, in consultation with Jay Sekulow and the legal team, regarding the best way to move forward. As of now, they have not decided on the strategy but are getting very close.”
According to CNN, the two people who overheard the discussion made sure to secretly record it.
As the news of Giuliani’s plans circulated, many on Twitter couldn’t resist poking fun at the idea of someone in Trump’s inner circle taking on a role as an analyst of a scandal in which he plays a major part.
People recording & playing shit Rudy G says at restaurants sounds like a great podcast.

I support this idea. Why pocket-dial reporters when you can just upload your confession to iTunes? https://t.co/HuzPjkbmeK

I approve of this. Think of all the incriminating info he’ll inevitably divulge. https://t.co/6ft0Jgcscr

Someone should tell Giuliani he has the right to remain silent. https://t.co/eWca8w5XiD

‘Desperate’ Martha McSally blasted for shilling T-shirts in a ‘tone deaf’ attempt to capitalize on her ‘liberal hack’ outburst
In the wake of a deluge of media attention for her calling CNN Congressional reporter Manu Raju a "liberal hack," Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) decided to capitalize on the publicity and sell T-shirts with the phrase "You're a liberal hack, buddy" to raise funds for her election campaign. According to Laurie Roberts in an op-ed for the AZ Central this Monday, the move is both a fashion statement and political statement -- but ultimately it's a statement "of just how desperate Arizona’s unelected senator is to boost her treasury as she campaigns to hang onto the seat."
‘Can you imagine a group of black men walking around with masks and guns?’ Virginia rally sparks questions of racism and privilege
It’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and for several hours now countless mostly white, mostly male pro-gun, anti-gun control activists have been marching throughout the streets of Richmond, Virginia, claiming to merely be exercising their Second Amendment rights. Many appear to be dressed in military garb, including camouflage, masks, and donning various types of firearms over their shoulders or at their side.
Some Virginians have been so concerned about the possibility of violence that Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency and banned guns from the capitol. His ban survived a state supreme court challenge. Some say the ban does not appear to have been enforced.
WATCH: Virginia gun rights activist trashes MSNBC reporter’s live shot by shouting F-bombs
A gun rights activist in Virginia went ballistic on Monday when he saw an MSNBC correspondent reporting from a Second Amendment rally.
NBC's Gabe Gutierrez was finishing up his live report at the Richmond demonstration when a man burst into the shot.
The man rattled off a string of profanities and capped it off with "f*ck you." Several security guards blocked the man from getting close to Gutierrez.
"Apologies for some of the background noise you just heard," MSNBC host Hallie Jackson said as the network cut the sound.
