An MSNBC interview with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Saturday morning spun into chaos at multiple times as “AM Joy” guest host Jonathan Capehart attempted to get a straight answer out of Donald Trump’s legal advisor about his meetings with a Russian spy.
Confronted by the MSNBC host over a Treasury Department report that sanctioned ex-Ukrainian politician Andrii Derkach for being “an active Russian agent” pushing “false and unsubstantiated” corruption claims about former Vice President Joe Biden in a bid to influence November’s election, Giuliani continually talked over Capehart when trying to dismiss the report and started making wild accusations which forced Capehart to cut him short.
In one exchange, the two sniped back and forth at each other with an exasperated Capehart telling the former mayor, “Answer the question.”
“I did not know he was a Russian agent,” Giuliani stated.
“How could you not know? You’re a former prosecutor, you have a national security firm. how could you not know that this person you were talking to was a known Russian agent who graduated from KGB schools?” Capehart asked.
“Jonathan, calm down,” Giuliani replied.
“Answer the question,” the MSNBC host pressed.
“Don’t yell at me, Jonathan,” the ex-mayor shot back. “That isn’t dignified. pretend to give fair coverage — pretend. I know you won’t cover the obstruction of justice by the 12 Mueller prosecutors who wiped their phones clean.”
“We’re talking about a Treasury –,” Capehart attempted only to have Giuliani cut him off with, “You’re talking about an irrelevant subject.”
“It’s not irrelevant because you have had dealings with him, you met with him three times last year,” Capehart replied.
“You see the loaded words you use? I haven’t had dealings with him,” Giuliani protested.
“You just said you interviewed him — that’s dealing,” the MSNBC host lectured.
Brett Kavanaugh revised his Wisconsin ruling after Vermont official’s demands — but it still contains the lies
Supreme Court Justice revised his Wisconsin opinion after a Vermont official complained that he misrepresented the way the state dealt with the election amid the pandemic. The problem, however, is that his corrections only cleaned up the sloppy language.
While it no longer appears like a high school mock trial assignment, it still lies about the example he gave in the Vermont details.
‘You’re free to go’: CNN’s Lemon tells Trump after president spends weeks complaining about going to rallies
President Donald Trump has spent the last several days at rallies complaining about how much he hates being there and how much he hates being president.
CNN's Don Lemon played clips of the rally airing of grievances.
"I probably bottom be standing out here in the freezing rain with you," Trump complained while in Lansing, Michigan. "I would be home in the White House doing whatever the hell I was doing. I wouldn't be out here."
"We win Wisconsin, we win the whole ball game," Trump told a crowd in Janesville, Wisconsin last week. "What the hell do you think I'm doing here on a freezing night with 45-degree wind? What do you think? Do you think I'm doing this for my health? I'm not doing this for my health."
Trump’s new favorite X-ray doctor is retweeting demands Dr. Fauci debate him
President Donald J. Trump selected radiologist Scott William Atlas as his newest health care policy advisor on the White House Coronavirus Task Force this past August after a public fallout with immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci. The two scholars could not be any more different on their approach to mitigating the pandemic, which has so far killed over 227,000 Americans.
"If we get a vaccination campaign, and by the second or third quarter of 2021 we have vaccinated a substantial proportion of the people, I think it will be easily by the end of 2021, and perhaps even into the next year, before we start having some semblances of normality," Fauci said recently during a University of Melbourne panel.
