Donald Trump Already Stabbed Rudy Giuliani In The Back Over Stormy Daniels Hush Money Debacle

Trump civil war

Well, it certainly didn’t take long for President Donald Trump to humiliate his new lawyer Rudy Giuliani. Trump already forced Giuliani to backtrack on what he said about Trump’s role in Michael Cohen’s $130,000 hush money payment to Stormy Daniels.

Trump said on Friday in remarks outside the White House that:

“He just started yesterday. He’ll get his facts straight.”

When Giuliani appeared on Fox News on Wednesday night, he told Sean Hannity that Trump reimbursed Cohen the $130,000 used to buy Daniels’ silence, resulting in a carefully worded statement posted on Trump’s Twitter account.

Giuliani had previously stated that the payment was made to Daniels to prevent her from talking about her affair with Trump during the final stretch of the 2016 campaign. Giuliani also revealed that Trump actually knew about the payment all along despite repeatedly claiming that he knew nothing about it.

Giuliani’s remarks opened Trump up to even more legal trouble, so it’s no wonder why Trump threw him under the bus on Friday.

“I’ll tell you this, when Rudy made the statements ― he’s great ― but Rudy had just started and he wasn’t totally familiar with everything. And Rudy ― we love Rudy ― he’s a special guy. What he really understands is this is a witch hunt. But when he made certain statements, he just started yesterday. So that’s it. It’s actually very simple. I say, you know what, learn before you speak. It’s a lot easier.”

Giuliani clearly received Trump’s message because he would make a statement later in the day clarifying his remarks, which, in this case, means agreeing with Trump.

“First: There is no campaign violation. The payment was made to resolve a personal and false allegation in order to protect the President’s family. It would have been done in any event, whether he was a candidate or not. Second: My references to timing were not describing my understanding of the President’s knowledge, but instead, my understanding of these matters.”

One thing is for certain, Trump humiliated Giuliani today, and it’s exactly why many high profile attorneys and law firms have declined to represent Trump in recent months. Trump can’t keep his mouth shut, and he tends to screw people over. Just ask Michael Cohen. Now Giuliani is learning that the hard way.
