MSNBC host Joe Scarborough attacked Rudy Giuliani’s mental health on “Morning Joe” Monday and asked if the president’s lawyer was suffering from dementia.
Scarborough played a clip of Giuliani discussing the viability of James Comey as a witness in the Russia probe and accused him of contradicting the administration’s narrative.
“What are we to make of that? Is Rudy Giuliani making it up as he goes along? Is he purposefully lying,” Scarborough laughed.(RELATED: Joe Scarborough Forced To Correct Tweet About White House Censorship)
“Does he have early onset of dementia? How does he go from yesterday saying he never asked that question, to us of course having a tape where just clearly a couple weeks ago he said that’s precisely what the president said?”
“Morning Joe” regular John Heilemann joined in to mock Giuliani’s mental fitness and said his credibility has dwindled away to nothing.
“I don’t want to rule out early on set, but the first option seems to be obviously the right one,” Heilemann quipped. “Giuliani, as I said before, his credibility is basically zero on pretty much everything at this point because he’s contradicted himself over and over and over again. But we are now veering into a new terrain in terms of the kind of deception that they’re trying to perpetrate and that he’s trying to perpetrate in this context.”
Heilemann then accused Giuliani of purposely misleading the country with falsities to advance the Trump administration’s agenda.
“All that is now happening is Rudy Giuliani is pushing a sustained campaign of gas lighting the country and blatant fabrication with a political end to its logical — and obviously what I mean by logical I mean insane, extreme to the point where he’s getting tripped up on words of his own from just a fortnight ago,” he concluded.
