Rudy Giuliani’s Catastrophic Media Blitz | The Daily Show


Former New York
mayor Rudy Giuliani is now also Donald Trump’s new lawyer,
and in his debut last week, he revealed for the first time
that Trump was involved in the late 2016 hush money
payment to Stormy Daniels, despite Trump always having
denied he knew about it. And the next morning,
Trump tweeted in support of Giuliani’s statement. But then, Giuliani–
his big reveal was that he didn’t get the response that he and his new boss
were hoping for. Did he create more
legal problems for president, more legal problems
for Michael Cohen? Is there a strategy here? Now I’m left scratching my head
saying, “What are they doing?!” What the heck, Ru…
He didn’t know? He did know? I love Rudy, but they better
have an explanation for that. That’s a… that’s a…
that’s a problem. -It was shocking.
-It’s a major screwup. …an appalling thing to watch. I liken it to a murder-suicide. -(laughter)
-Damn. That is the most brutal
review I’ve heard since Mike Pence
saw Wonder Woman. (laughter) “The only thing
I’m wondering about this woman “is where her husband is. Two thumbs down.” So everyone
from Fox to MSNBC agreed: Giuliani’s story was a disaster. Right? All he had done was get the president in more
campaign violation trouble. So, uh, Trump broke out
a special move that he usually reserves
just for his golf game: a do-over. Rudy is a great guy,
but he just started a day ago. But he really
has his heart into it, he’s working hard, he’s
learning the subject matter. Uh… he’ll get
his facts straight. He’s a great guy. You know, it’s so weird
to hear Trump defending someone the way we normally hear
other people defending him. “He’s still learning.
He’s new at the job. That’s… you know,
he’s still getting used to it.” Like, that’s not how you
describe a high-priced lawyer. That’s how you defend a kid
who’s having trouble at school. “We’re getting Rudy a tutor,
folks. Give him a chance. “He’s a good kid, and he
already knows all his shapes. Give him a chance, folks.” (laughter) So… as of Friday, that was the new plan. Throw away everything
Giuliani said last week, because he doesn’t know
what he’s talking about? And you could see
why Trump likes Giuliani. Because Saturday
he went back on TV to throw himself under the bus. Did you misspeak,
or did people not interpret what you were saying? The facts,
I-I-I’m still learning. This is, you know,
1.2 million documents. I’ve been on the case
for two weeks. Virtually one day,
in comparison to other people. So I’m not an expert
on the facts yet. I’m getting there.
But I am an expert on the law. And the fact is there is no way this is a campaign finance
violation of any kind. Okay, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
You can’t have it both ways. Giuliani says he… he’s new,
and he doesn’t know the facts, but then he also says,
“For a fact, Trump didn’t break any laws.”
You can’t do that. It’s like a detective walking
into a crime scene and immediately saying, “I
don’t know what happened here, “but I’m gonna say
he’s innocent. “All right, let’s go get lunch.
Let’s do it. “Oh, shit, who killed that guy? Ho-ho. Murder mystery.” So, on Saturday, Fox News was
willing to forgive and forget, which was great for Giuliani. Unfortunately, on ABC on Sunday, there was a very short man
with a very long memory who asked Giuliani
a simple question that led to an amazing response. So the president did know
about this after the campaign? Can’t say that.
I mean, at some point, yes, but it could have been recently,
it could have been a while back. Those are the facts
that we’re still working on, and that, you know, may be
in a little bit of dispute. This is more rumor
than it is anything else. Well, that’s what you said.
You said that to BuzzFeed. But here’s the rea…
Well, yeah. I mean, that’s one of the possibilities
and one of the rumors. -Uh, the reality is…
-You stated it as fact. Well, maybe I did, but I…
right now I’m at the point where I’m learning, and…
I can only… I can’t prove that,
I can just say it’s rumor. I could prove it’s rumor,
but I can’t prove it’s fact. (laughter) I feel like I just smoked weed
through the TV. (laughter, applause) (cheering) Giuliani is in an interview telling us that we shouldn’t
listen to what he says in interviews. And… and I don’t know
if I’m confused or if he’s confused,
but I guess, fortunately, he cleared it up immediately–
he’s confused. You said, as a matter of fact,
on Hannity and BuzzFeed, -you talked to…
-(laughs): Well, I don’t know… I don’t know, how do you
separate fact and opinion? -(laughter)
-I… I don’t know how you
“separate fact and opinion”? That’s pretty basic.
But I… but I guess, in a way, he has a point. I mean, see, like my opinion is that Giuliani is Bat Boy
after he grew up. -(laughter)
-But that could also be a fact. So who knows? Who knows? Now, at this point,
Giuliani’s defense strategy just seems to be:
dismantle reality. But really,
it fits into the whole idea that Trump and his people
have always been playing with: fiction versus facts. Facts are anything
that helps Trump. And anything that doesn’t
help Trump isn’t a fact. Yeah. And as Trump’s lawyer, this is going
to be Giuliani’s challenge because they haven’t
figured out yet what version of events
won’t get Trump into trouble. Yeah, once they figure that out, that’s when they’ll start
calling things facts. And this is a tactic
we can all understand. It’s like when
a cop pulls you over and they ask you how fast
you were going and then you try to figure out
the speed limit. You’re like, “Uh, Officer,
I was going, uh, 50… 50– 55 miles an hour?” He’s like, “Oh,
that’s ten miles faster.” “Before, I went 45 miles
an hour. You didn’t let me finish.
Yeah, yeah.” “Well, you said
you were going 55.” “No, that was a rumor,
this is a fact. “I just started driving
a week ago. “I’m very new at this.
This is all very new for me. I-I don’t know how any
of this works, Officer.” (cheering and applause) And look, I-I completely
understand the strategy, but you have to admit,
it makes these guys look super guilty right now. And I’m not on
Trump’s legal team, but I have some advice: Giuliani, I know you’re still
learning the facts, but until you get them settled, maybe take a page
from DJ Khaled, and stop using your mouth
for a while.

  1. I think he became confused after he met the big Boss that telling him to go back to the TV news to screw what he already said n done .. like a ping – pong : 'fact/rumor'; flip n flop words :D, is he really a lawyer??

  2. Rudy is awful, dumb and highly incompetent. He will be a great addition to the already useless Trump administration.

  3. I just realized this is like watching LOST. Is that, what their writers are doing, now? All the plot convolutions, time changes and added characters, keeps you watching to see how this development, ties back to that person and what the ramifications are.

  4. Those poor bastards who have been represented by Rudy Bat Boy now understand why he lost their cases… as they watch in horror his tremendous stupidity. No further questions, your honor!

  5. How bad does this have to get b4 this bad batch of cookies gets thrown out .. JEEZUS !!
    Julianne just ZIP IT YOUR ANOTHER OBVIOUS LIAR 🤥 any fool can see that lying face …

  6. I see it comming: War with Iran for non-existing atomic weapons just to distract to all the other shit and keep beeing president. Bacause who will not say "We are at war, who cares about this? Wee need a leader now" and all the investigations are droped.

  7. When Giuliani says they're still "working on the facts", what he means is they haven't yet decided what they want the facts to be.

  8. Dam..did you guys notice that Fox News knew about the stormy Daniels payment and are mad that he screwed up.

  9. My client could not have broken any laws because I know the law and my client paid me. The facts speak for themselves. lmao

  10. I don't think Russia have anything to do with any collusion with Trump. I think it was Israel who colluded with Trump. Trump pointed the Dems towards Russia and the Dems bit the bait. Russia have nothing to gain from colluding but Israel does. Israel benefits along with Saudis if the MiddleEast falls and they will take their land and enrich themselves. Trump will get very wealthy along with his cabinets and ex cabinets like Tillerson. That's why he needs war strategies from Bush's old warmongers to help him succeed. The chess game is almost over and is about to be a checkmate if the Dems doesnt look into it. Unless they are in it as well. you didn't hear it from me. 😂😂😂

  11. Giuliani knows what he is doing. He has one job and that is to throw himself and the president under the bus. He is doing it for America.

  12. "I can prove it's rumor, but I can't prove it's fact." so, you're implying it could be both??

  13. The fact of the opinion is… .. the constitution says we the people! Not, stupid must govern!

    Stop acting dumb
    Start removing them from office!

  14. I'm going to go out on a limb here but I'd say this fcking Trump experiment is working out just swell! Ahhhhh 😱 horrifying

  15. Just saying, if anyone is trying to learn how to act and wants to learn how to portray a person who is lying just watch Rudy Giuliani

  16. Evidently any staffer, official, or attorney all abide by a very clear, common job description, and perhaps the single most important qualification in that JD, ironically enough, is to be elementally unqualified. It all makes for terrific media and entertainment!

  17. 2:35 He does a one-shoulder shrug on his right side. Body language experts would say that he isn't confident in what he is saying.

  18. "maybe i did but i am still learning"
    holy shit and those kind of ppl running your system?
    gosh u guys are fucked in 3 years from now

  19. This guy that does The Daily Show I mean all you socialist leftist Democrats you do realize he's a comedian he's told what to say, he's not a reporter I mean he's bought and paid for if some conservative was to offer him more money to come out and speak against the left against the Socialist Party that is what he would do, but you morons keep watching him and considering this to be news no wonder you have a porn stars your spokeswoman you people are stupid

  20. This is comedy? FUCK YOU Comedy central. You died when John Stewart left. Don't ever loose South Park. It's all you've got left. Oh they're self proclaimed republicans don't'cha know.

  21. This is not even supposed to be an insult, but if this guy would build speak in a just slightly more confused way, I would call a doctor.

  22. Thank God! Satan and his henchmen are narcissist . Rudy Guilani is a closet cross dressing queen. Rudy got his Ass! Handed to him by the law firm he worked for, he was FIRED!!, because he indicted his whole law firm on how lawyers practice law. Rudy Guilani is a perfect example of the bias, racist judicial system. He sucked as a mayor, and bias racist prosecutor among minorities in New York and now Guilani is trump's right hand Moron. Starting off as trump's lawyer with his foot up his ass!

  23. How do you work on the facts when they are indeed " Facts"….right there…in your face…with no exception?

  24. dude needs to be put under the cell for all the police that murdered people and he let ride and then get payed while on leave. Fuck dude

  25. After watching this, I'm convinced Rudy is even dumber than he looks and he looks dumber than a pile of rocks.

  26. WHITEHOUSE needs a exterminator it's infested with COCKROACHES! INCLUDING THE BIG ORANGE KING COCKROACH!

  27. "I've been in the case for 2 weeks, virtually one day in comparison to other people."

    What people? One day is one day, Mr Guiliani. What the eff are you saying? We ALL have 24 hours a day. SMH.

  28. Lol US got idiot president with idiot lawyer. Both are damn old and "still learning" but not getting any better 🤣

  29. Bat boy fans, unite! Writers put that in for us 50 – 60 year olds. BTW, international weapons deals, the NRA and the mass incarceration of blacks was solidified and launched during the Reagan years, glad you young folk are finally catching up!

  30. I know rabies is contagious, but obviously
    SO IS INSANITY!! Anyone,who sits in a room
    with the ORANGE MENACE, comes out
    Crazy as a SOUP
    SANDWICH!!

  31. Just looking at no neck Rudy and his bugged out eyes and jowls is funny enough! 😂 Then he opens his mouth, to spins lies that are so hilarious, I wonder how the reporter isn’t doubled over laughing like me!😭😭😭

  32. I love watching Trevor because you can tell how intelligent and insightful he is, while also being a witty comedian. It’s a great and refreshing way to get the news without being spoon-fed it. Plus, it’s a much more palatable format to stay up to date.

  33. "I don't know how you separate fact from opinion"… For a Lawyer, this is the little known fact: You win, you get paid. You lose*, you get paid. (*when you lose, you are immediately a candidate for an opposing party…you win, again). With Trevor Noah and his analysis (and clear & clever presentations, here's hope in America (yes, even for the United Fakes of America!

  34. What Rudy is doing is exactly what Kellyanne does. Just put random word jumble into a sentence picking on choice words from the question itself, speak for 6-7 such sentences but fast to avoid detection of the incoherence. It works quite well to get out of interviews but it does not work in court especially under oath.

  35. @4:45 the "FAX iz" That RG just had a grand mal "phobic seizure" directly brought on by EXTREME fear of career DEATH BY POTUS ;{ the Poor weasel, lol buck up RG that was painful from HERE"()-
