Appearing on MSNBC with host Maria Teresa Kumar, former Donald Trump fixer Michael Cohen was asked what ex-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is doing for Donald Trump’s re-election bid, with the former Trump lawyer brutally dismissing Giuliani as both a “liability” and a “moron.”
In a week that saw Giuliani’s attempt to smear Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden fall apart before moving on to a cameo appearance in a Borat film that caught him in a compromising position with an actress playing a teen reporter, Cohen laughed at the week’s events.
“As far as I’m concerned, Rudy is an absolute joke,” Cohen began. “He who was once America’s mayor is now the laughingstock of not just the country but of the whole world.”
“I mean, to get played like that, he is a liability to the campaign, he’s a liability to Donald Trump, he’s a liability to the United States of America,” he continued. “The man is easily capable of being bought. I’ve said this before, he drinks too much and when you drink too much, especially if you are going to get yourself involved into that world, they realize that you have a weakness and they will jump right on that weakness and that is why Rudy Giuliani will get caught with his pants open laying down on bed for a Borat movie.”
“I mean, he’s a moron,” he added with a smirk. “There’s no other way to describe it, Rudy is just a moron.”
Agitated Trump supporters are still in denial — and they’re coalescing into a new conspiracy-minded election movement
Georgia’s Trump supporters are not giving up. On Saturday, scores massed outside the statehouse in Atlanta, a small sea of mostly men in red MAGA hats hoisting signs hurling accusations against Joe Biden and wearing campaign tee-shirts saying “STOP the STEAL.”
It barely mattered that Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger had certified Biden’s unexpected nearly 13,000-vote victory one day before. Also irrelevant was Georgia’s unprecedented manual hand count of presidential votes on 5 million paper ballots, which was more than any 2020 swing state has done since Election Day to verify its votes.
Trump abruptly ends news conference after 1 minute as reporters grill him on conceding
President Donald Trump took one minute out of his day on Tuesday to hold a press conference in which he took credit for gains in the stock market, which came after President-elect Joe Biden's transition was allowed to formally begin.
At his press conference which lasted almost exactly one minute, Trump credited his administration for after the Dow Jones Industrial Average traded above 30,000 for the first time.
"The stock market, it's just broken 30,000," the president said. "Never broken that number. That's a sacred number. Nobody thought they would ever see it. That's the ninth time since the beginning of 2020 and it's the 48th time that we have broken records in -- during the Trump administration."
Here’s the best way to pry Trump from the White House — according to a professional hostage negotiator
President Donald Trump is still refusing the concede that he lost the 2020 presidential election, which has prompted some speculation over whether the Secret Service will be forced to drag him out of the White House on January 20th.
In an interview with the Boston Globe, retired NYPD homicide detective Alfred S. Titus, Jr. said that the best way to coax Trump to leave would be to remind him of how great his life was before he decided to run for office back in 2015.
