“Donald Trump said during the transition that Rudy Giuliani was losing it, that he was a couple of steps behind, that he was falling asleep five minutes into meetings,” Scarborough said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“Everybody around Donald Trump said [Giuliani] was drinking too much ― Donald Trump suggested as much,” Scarborough continued. “That was two years ago. And the fact that Donald Trump brought this guy in two years later despite his own reservations about him … it’s not 3D chess. That’s not even checkers. That’s a monkey throwing poo against the wall, and it doesn’t usually turn out well.”
Trump denied knowledge of the payment and suggested Friday that Giuliani didn’t have “his facts straight.” Giuliani continued his media blitz over the weekend with a bizarre interview on ABC’s “This Week,” in which he hinted that Cohen may have made payments to other women on behalf of Trump.
Still, Giuliani said he was happy with his explosive media tour.
“We all feel pretty good that we’ve got everything kind of straightened out and we’re setting the agenda,” Giuliani told The Washington Post on Sunday.
