He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire.

    And Rudy said some more stuff this morning

    “Imagine if that came out on October 15, 2016 in the middle of the last debate,” Giuliani said this morning on Fox & Friends of the Daniels affair, which Trump, also this morning, insisted was a private matter having nothing to do with the campaign.

      So, put those together, and Giuliani is publicly insisting that no campaign finance laws were violated, because… Trump covertly funneled non-campaign funds… to campaign-related expenses.

      Would trump have been better off hiring a dog in a suit from one of those “I have no idea what I’m doing” memes?Report

      What’s so incompetent is that to avoid running afoul of campaign laws the one thing they can’t say is that the payoff had anything to do with his desire to be president; they have to have iron discipline to say that his only motivation was hurting Melania (or some such private thing).

      Then the onus would be on the prosecution to prove that it was related to the campaign… to which Team Trump could just say, “Really… we had a tape about grabbing lady parts and still won.” And honestly, they’d have a point.

      Unless of course, the agreement itself stipulates thing about the presidential election, etc. At which point… I don’t see why they don’t just go… “whelp… we’re new to this whole campaign funding thing…I guess this does fit a goods/services model if you extend it that way… mea culpa…what’s the fine for that?”Report

    I believe I count at least three violations there. There’s the fact that it wasn’t reported, there’s the fact that a loan (esp. an interest free one) is an in-kind donation even if repaid, and of course there’s the fact that what you’ve got here is a straw donor set up to avoid campaign finance limits.

    Then there was admitting obstruction of justice, yet again, and I believe Cohen just got shoved under the bus.

    So, yeah, that’s a pretty awesome debut there Giuliani.Report

    Rudy apparently said Kushner is “disposable”. A “fine man” but men are “disposable” unlike Ivanka. So there is that. Whether that is some subtle family message to Jared or just Rudy being clueless who knows. But never bet against the answer being Rudy a loud mouth clueless mook 20 years past his sell by date.Report

    Those tweets look like they were a collaboration between someone who can write and Donald Trump. At any rate, who pays someone $130,000 to keep quiet about an affair than never happened?Report

    More fun news. Apparently Cohen’s been under wire tap, and that includes at least one White House call.Report

    The thing that bothers me the most is that our president doesn’t know how to spell “role”.Report
