It may be hard to believe, but Rudy Giuliani was once one of America’s best known and most respected lawyers. Acting as the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, he focused on putting away organized crime figures. Giuliani parlayed that success into a stint as New York City’s mayor.Those days, though, are long passed. Giuliani now acts as a part-time lawyer for Donald Trump and his actions routinely end in embarrassment. Still, he recently said that he is not impressed with the other lawyers currently working for the president.
Giuliani made the comments during an appearance on Steve Bannon’s War Room show. He told the host:
“The way I look at it, the best explanation I have for it is, these people are on mañana time, and I’m on Trump time. A little different. But they are very frustrating.Including — including within his own legal team, his campaign. The mere fact that they weren’t prepared for this is an outrage. You know that, Steve. You and I talked about it. Every one of these documents I’m putting together now, these all should’ve been ready. All you had to do was ant — how — how — how much anticipation was there? I mean, I’m very very frustrated. But it — you know, it doesn’t stop me from going after them 24 hours a day. And most of these questions.”
Bannon attempted to interject, but Giuliani pressed on, “Wouldn’t be filed if I weren’t yelling and screaming and doing my own intimidation — I mean they want go over these lawsuits, he waits.”
