Rudy Giuliani, once the Mayor of New York City, then the personal attorney to the President of the United States, is now a podcaster with his license to practice law suspended in both New York and Washington D.C..
His podcast is unironically titled Common Sense, and the former Mayor uses it to share his political views along with advertisements for MyPillow products and gold Trump coins. This week, he had decided to do a Q&A, taking questions from his Twitter followers and answering them on his Wednesday episode.
COMING UP this week on Common Sense, I sit down for a Q&A where YOUR questions will be answered!
Submit them in the comment section below to be read aloud in our episode this week.

However, the questions he received were largely about how he justifies working for Donald Trump, whether he feels that his integrity is intact, and about Trump’s culpability for a list of alleged crimes. Of course, there were also a few digs about the ex-president’s reputation for not paying his lawyers, and about Giuliani’s own legal situation.
Was it worth giving up your career, your integrity, possibly your freedom and your very soul?

I have one: what is like to attempt to install a dictator in the U.S. of America? Then lose embarrassingly?

How was your press conference at a landscaping company? What hair dye do you use? Asking for a friend don't want it to run down their face. What size cell do you think they'll give you? Why do feel anyone give a shit wtf you have to say?

My question for Rudy is, "Do you think they will have you in General Population or will you be in Protective Segregation?".

Two questions: 1. Why? 2. Was it worth it?

There were also a few that went too far to be included here, addressing Giuliani’s appearance in the Borat movie, where he appeared to expect that a young interviewer (an adult actress playing a teen character) was interested in a sexual interlude with him. (Giuliani has maintained that he only had his hand in his pants to tuck in his shirt.)
The new episode of Common Sense isn’t released until Wednesday, but it seems unlikely that Giuliani will be addressing any of these questions on it, and they’re probably not what he had in mind when he promised to read and answer questions on the show.
