Rudy Giuliani was, at one point, one of the most respected political figures in the country. But he’s spent the last 10 years consistently making embarrassing mistakes. On particular low-point for the former New York City mayor was getting booed during a Yankees game.But he seemingly topped that low-point this week during a skit put together by Sacha Baron Cohen. The comedian caught the sometimes Trump lawyer in a compromising situation where he fiddled with his pants in the presence of a girl he was told was 15 years old. During an appearance on MSNBC last night, Michael Cohen explained why Giuliani has become a “complete joke.”
Host Chris Hayes said to Cohen, “The thing I find most striking about Donald Trump as president particularly is sort of how easy it is to get to him, how many different people are able to get a vector to the president with a deal they have, a contract they want, a special policy maybe they can sell him on, whether he is at his club or Lev and Igor in a back room with him.”

The former Trump lawyer replied:
“Rudy Giuliani is really no longer relevant in this campaign. First of all, they all know that they’re going to lose the campaign, so everybody’s kind of running right now for cover. And that’s including Rudy. This last one with Borat is sort of the icing on the cake. Rudy’s become a complete joke and there’s no reason to have him around.”
