Default Rudy Giuliani

I just watched Fox News Sunday, on DVR. One of the guests was White House lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Every time the host (John Roberts, who was substituting for Chris Wallace) would try to say something, Giuliani would interrupt him. It was as if the latter had his talking points, and he was determined to get them all in--no matter how rude he needed to be, in order to do that.

If I had been hosting the show, the first time that happened--or the second time, at the latest--I would have simply said, "We need to go to commercial break right now"; and Giuliani would not have been there when we returned from break.

I simply despise rudeness--in all of its forms. And the president's lawyer is no exception to that rule.

The media have their marching orders, promote the same fake scandal of Trump collusion with a foreign government to interfere with our Presidential election. Just like the Russian collusion false narrative ignored the Democrat in fixing the primary for Hillary and the real corruption between Democrats and the media , so too the story of Biden's corruption using his son as a proxy to extort bribes and withholding US aid until a prosecutor investigating the scam was dismissed is spiked by the dutiful media stooges.

The same Orange man bad narrative was recited accross the board by the media. The Sunday morning talk shows on NBC, ABC and CBS allowed noncommittal Republicans to respond to the accusations with pious cries of we need to get to the bottom of this fake scandal. Shame on Guiliani for insisting on presenting evidence of Biden's corruption. Once the narrative is laid down the Resistance accepts no variation from the script.

The great majority of what you say is certainly correct--especially the part about the left-leaning bias of the MSM.

But Fox News Sunday is not a part of either "NBC, ABC [or] CBS." And FNC certainly does not lean leftward.

And I am not upset with the substance of what Giuliani said. Rather, I find it incredibly rude to continually interrupt others.

I'm old enough to remember when Giuliani was "America's Mayor", a post-9/11 icon who was highly regarded on both sides. I even considered voting for him in the '08 primaries for a time.

Now he's devolved into a sad, babbling toadie for a criminal president. Kinda hurts to see him like this.

Yes comrade, anyone deviating from the narrative of Trump as a mafia don ruthlessly demanding the Ukrainians support his re election campaign by gasp, investigating Biden's influence peddling scheme is a babbling toadie and a coconspirator in Trump's criminality.

There is no explanation for the Ukrainian company giving Hunter Biden $50k per month other than buying Joe Biden in the process. Somehow Trump asking the Ukrainian government to investigate this blatant corruption translates through the prism of Orange man bad into criminal activity by Trump.

Ok sure, but I hope you don't think ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC etc... are any better.

You mean Un-convicted person of interest, believe me, there are REAL criminals in politics, but he is not one of them.

Now if I heard Trump say on video that he threatened to withhold 1 billion dollars in aid until they dropped the prosecution of his son Donald Jr. Then I would agree with you, that sounds like extortion / blackmail.
