He once was THE guy to schmooze,
Back before the Trump election ruse.
“America’s Mayor” after 9/11 —
He was in reputation heaven,
But now Rudi Giuliani’s been banned from Fox News.
“I’m not an alcoholic. I’m a functioning… I probably function more effectively than 90 percent of the population.”
He added: “I don’t think I’ve ever done an interview drunk. I have … sometimes … I mean, I drink normally. I like Scotch, I drink Scotch.”
— Rudy Giuliani denied having a drinking problem in an interview with NBC New York.
Rudi Giuliani is tagged as the 53rd Trump insider to contract the coronavirus, reports Slate. Given the several Christmas parties to take place at the White House, he is unlikely to be the last. Chris Christie, the former New Jersey governor who helped Trump prepare for debates with Joe Biden, is one of the few victims who emerged from his ICU kicking himself for stupidly not wearing a mask at those gatherings and urging other Americans not to make the same mistake. What will Giuliani say if and when he limps out of his hospital? It is too late for words of regret and renunciation to reclaim his much-tarnished legacy. But hey, it couldn’t hurt.
For Rudi, losing election challenges is no longer fun,
And his legal career, such as it was, is just about done.
But one wonders what crimes
He’s committed over time
That would lead him to ask Trump for a pre-emptive pardon.
