Rudy Giuliani Calls Hunter Biden a Crack Addict, Defends Spreading Russian Propaganda: ‘How Do I Know If It’s True?’
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani defended sharing Russian propaganda relating to Hunter Biden’s ties to Ukraine with The New York Post in a bonkers interview on Friday morning’s edition of Fox and Friends.
On Thursday, Twitter and Facebook stopped the article from circulating and marked it as potentially harmful, drawing the ire of Giuliani and his misinformation miscreants.
“Who would pay this man two dollars, let alone $10 million, if he’s a crack addict,” Guiliani thrashed, referring to former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, who overcame addition, and whom Republicans have falsely accused of exploiting his father’s job for personal financial gain.
Host Ainsley Earhardt asked Giuliani to respond to a report in The Washington Post that “U.S. intelligence agencies warned the White House last year that President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani was the target of an influence operation by Russian intelligence, according to four former officials familiar with the matter.”
But Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s top television henchman, insisted that he and Trump are the victims of an American intelligence conspiracy to damage the president, claiming that no one gave him a heads up. In other words, deny, deny deny, and then when that fails, deflect.
“Well first of all, they never warned me of that and I’m an American citizen,” Giuliani replied. “One would think if I were dealing with some kind of a ‘hoo agent of this and that,’ someone would have warned me. No one did. I have never heard of that before. I think this may be another one of our intelligence things like holding [former CIA Director John] Brennan’s memo for four years, even though it was the Trump Administration that could have blown open the whole thing. This is not a very friendly intelligence service,” he said.
Recall that Trump was impeached for trying to extort Ukraine into a scheme to disparage Biden’s character and hurt his father’s chances in the election.
“The Washington Post has four unnamed sources,” co-host Steve Doocy interjected. This did not deter Giuliani from his narrative.
“Of course it’s unnamed… I’m never an unnamed source,” Giuliani snapped. “I’ve got five named sources for this,” he chuckled.
“Well, is it true? Is it true Rudy? Did you go to Ukraine to get information to expose Biden?” Earhardt asked Giuliani.
“How do I know if it’s true?” Giuliani growled as Doocy, Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade watched, utterly stupefied by what they were witnessing. “If you say it’s true, it’s true, I have no other knowledge of it other than what you just told me. No one in the Trump Administration warned me. No one in the intelligence community warned me. The president didn’t warn me. This is the first time I am hearing that, and I have a pretty good idea where it’s coming from, and these are people who are trying to tear down Donald Trump and destroy his presidency from inside the intelligence community, of which there are many.”
Giuliani offered no evidence to support his conspiracy theory.
