CNN commentator John Avlon accused Rudy Giuliani of turning his back on the truth and betraying the bedrock of his career to protect President Donald Trump.
Hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota were discussing Giuliani’s comments about the nature of truth on “Meet The Press” Sunday and pushed back on the former New York City mayor’s claims. (RELATED: CNN’s John Avlon Alleges White House Cover Up To Distract From Trump-Putin Meeting)
“If this was some vacuum, maybe perhaps I’d be inclined to agree with you a tiny little bit. However, Giuliani’s the same guy who says the truth is relative. He’s the same guy who says they have a different version of the truth,” Berman said on “New Day” Monday. “This is a pattern.”
“The reason I think what Rudy said yesterday is indefensible and I’m on team Berman on this one is that– Rudy long time, as a prosecutor, as mayor — one of his go to phrases is real simple. The law is a search for the truth,” Avlon declared.
Avlon claimed Giuliani is trying to “cover up” for Trump, because the president has a problem with telling the truth.
“He has believed that his whole career. It is bedrock to his world view and it is the opposite of what he said yesterday,” he concluded. “It’s inconsistent with what he’s said over a long period of time and we can’t slide into this world of moral relativism. Rudy’s also made that point over and over again … They’re basically trying to cover up for someone who seems to have a truth telling problem.”
