Giuliani Proves Batshit Crazy Is More Than Just a Rumor; It’s A Lifestyle

The gates are down, the lights are flashing, but there’s still no train in sight.

Rudy Giuliani continues to prove that he’s just a hairbreadth away from coming totally unhinged when he appeared on This Week with George Stephanapolous recently.

The scariest thing about Giuliani’s most recent appearance wasn’t just his lurching about in his seat while his eyes ricocheted around the room, or his speech pattern that mimicked a drug-addled coke fiend in the throes of a manic episode. No, it was his penchant for blowing up the attorney/client privilege clause of his contract with his client, the President of the United States and gesticulating wildly while spewing nonsensical, semi-coherent sentences to the amazement of George.

Rudy Giuliani: Back in the day before he colluded with obstruction of justice and nefarious clients

It’s hard to imagine that somewhere in the way back machine, this guy was considered a fairly good attorney when he helmed the Southern District of New York as a prosecutor, going after mob figures and the dregs of society. Now, the Southern District has Giuliani in their crosshairs.

The Giuliani that appeared on This Week With George Stephanopolous was more than just a loose cannon; he was void of any of the requisite skillsets that constitute an articulate attorney who represents his client in the best possible manner. Rambling endlessly, he clearly stunned Stephanopoulos with his rapid-fire stupidity and aimlessly long-winded responses, redirecting George’s questions to subjects far afield from the line of questioning.

Forget the fact that Rudy apparently no longer has a neck — just a head that wobbles on his shoulders, and that his false uppers don’t match his yellow-pegged lowers, nor that he is clearly so far out of his depth in his position as Trump’s lawyer that it would take a herculean 9/11-type effort to dig him out of the hole into which he’s placed his client and himself. Never mind that he clearly cannot talk in coherent, logical sentences because he’s too busy trying to muddle the already muddy waters of Trump’s making. No, Rudy has gone to the dark side of reprehensible, buffeted by a healthy dose of a willing suspension of belief and rounded out by the hope that America (well, at least the educated, thinking America) will not notice.

The gates are down, the lights are flashing but there was no train in sight, just like Giuliani’s repeated appearances on various Fox News shows this past week that prompted some of the Trumpaholics on Fox (i.e., Neil Cavuto) to question what is “really going on” over there. Rudy is in serious need of psychological assistance. The pomposity, the boasting and the ego-driven rants all harken back to….Trump, and that’s the problem for Trump and his legal team. One out-of-control batshit crazy person (Trump) is enough for his legal team to handle. Add an attorney (Giuliani) who is cut from the same cloth as Trump, and his legal team is in for the fight of their lives, trying to save Trump from himself and themselves from Giuliani.

My guess is that Giuliani will be indicted by the SDNY before year’s end. Until that time, Adam Schiff will no doubt be taping all of the Rudy moments on Fox, NBC, ABC. With an attorney like Giuliani, Schiff should put Rudy on his payroll. He is, afterall, making Schiff’s case against Trump better with every outrageous quote…and this nation will be better for it in the end.
