MSNBC’s Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough told his viewers this week that President Donald Trump skipped over Rudy Giuliani for an administration position due to the former New York mayor’s drinking problem – a revelation that could help explain the attorney’s recent television interviews.
“It’s interesting that Donald Trump went out, as he was leaving the White House a few days ago, and said, ‘Rudy needs to get his story straight,'” Scarborough said. “‘He just came on and he needs to get his story straight.’ Well, Rudy got his story straight and he went out and said, ‘Hey, yeah, there are probably more women, we could expect more women — that could happen, yeah. More women may come forward in the future.’ So now Donald Trump is upset about that, and reports, again, may be the latest version of the ‘Mooch’ — he may be on his way out.”
“That he was falling asleep five minutes into meetings,” Scarborough added. “I can mention this: Everybody around Donald Trump said he was drinking too much — Donald Trump suggested as much — that was two years ago. And the fact that Donald Trump brought this guy in two years later despite his own reservations about him, almost two years ago, that’s not any, it’s not 3-D chess. That’s not even checkers, that’s a monkey throwing poo against the wall, and it doesn’t usually turn out well.”
