Rudy Giuliani Jokes That He Has 'Very Good Insurance' in the Event That Donald Trump Throws Him Under the Bus

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, has made gaffe after gaffe after gaffe after gaffe in defending his client.

With each new stumble in defending Donald Trump, some speculate that Giuliani's firing is imminent. Even Trump once answered that he didn't know if Giuliani was still representing him.


So when The Guardian asked Giuliani if he feared Trump would throw him under the bus, Giuliani joked that, even if Trump did, he wouldn't be scared. Why? Because he has good insurance.

He said:

"I'm not [nervous about being thrown under the bus by Trump], but I do have very, very good insurance, so if he does, all my hospital bills will be paid."

Giuliani was apparently joking that he had good health insurance and could recover from being thrown under a literal bus.

Twitter, however, was divided as to whether or not "health insurance" was a metaphor for "compromising material," in the same way that the "bus" is a metaphor for blame or condemnation.

CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale assured that Giuliani was joking.

Others weren't so sure.

Especially after Giuliani's lawyer, Robert Costello, stepped in to clarify that Giuliani was joking.

But when it comes like staunch Republicans like Giuliani, it says a lot that they can joke about how great their health insurance is.

Really landed that one, Rudy.

Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) has long been a target of the Right wing due to her vociferous opposition to President Donald Trump.

One of Waters' most vocal opponents, Omar Navarro, ran against the Congresswoman in 2016 and 2018, losing in a landslide both times. He intends to run against her again, but a recent development may have eliminated that possibility.

For years now, President Donald Trump has claimed that the investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 election was a concentrated effort from the Federal Bureau of Investigation to undermine his campaign and subsequent presidency.

Now, the highly-anticipated review of the investigation's origins from Inspector General for the Justice Department Michael Horowitz—released Monday—has effectively debunked Trump and his allies' claims.

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA), as Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee overseeing impeachment, was one of the most vocal critics of the public impeachment hearings overseen by the committee last month.

It turns out Nunes may not have been doing so completely out of party loyalty, but because he was in contact with Ukrainian-born Giuliani associates in an effort to pressure Ukrainian leaders to investigate President Donald Trump's political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

The House of Representatives is expected to vote to impeach President Donald Trump before the end of the year, putting him on trial in the Senate in the same year he'll run for reelection.

As a result, more and more Republican Senators are going on the record to defend the President's actions.

Among them? Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).

Cruz's unyielding loyalty to Trump, despite the pair's bitter rivalry during the 2016 Republican primary, confounds many to this day. Now, Cruz is repeating conspiracy theories on the President's behalf.

In an interview with Meet the Press host Chuck Todd, even the show's crew could be heard laughing at Cruz insisting that Ukraine meddled in U.S. elections.

Watch below.

When asked by Todd if he believed Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election, Cruz responded, "I do and I think there's considerable evidence." An incredulous Chuck Todd responded, "You do?"

Laughter could be heard off camera.

Cruz continued trying to make his case, but was only able to cite an op-ed from Ukrainian ambassador to the U.S., Valeriy Chaly. The op-ed was critical of Trump after Trump implied that Ukrainians in Crimea–which Russia illegally seized in 2014—would rather be living under Russian rule.

A single op-ed, according to Cruz, is equivalent to Russia's "multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election."

Others agreed with the Meet the Press crew that the senator's remarks were laughable.








Cruz is all but certain to vote to acquit Trump in the Senate if the President is impeached. At least it won't be without rebuke.

Former Vice President and current 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden erupted at a man during an Iowa town hall who accused him of actively working to get his son Hunter a board position on the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. Biden called the man a "damn liar" before challenging him to pushups.

Republicans seized on the moment as an opportunity to discredit Biden as a candidate, but Fox and Friends cohost Ainsley Earhardt's reaction may be the most deluded yet.
