Washington, D. C. (eTruePolitics) – Where’s Rudy, the current president’s new lawyer? Donald Trump may need some help there, at least White House staffers think he does.
“The ‘Don’t Congratulate Putin’ memo had too many words,” said a senior presidential aide, referring to an all-in-caps memo warning Trump not to congratulate Putin on winning the recent bogus Russian election. A memo Trump ignored. And was pilloried for.
“We knew if this memo leaked it’d be embarrassing but Rudy is joining the legal team and we think it’s pretty important the president be able to recognize his own lawyer,” the staffer explained.
In a cybersecurity meeting in February 2017 Trump had famously been unable to identify Guiliani who was sitting directly across from him.
