Did you hear about that big, very old, very scary volcano that erupted over the weekend? His name is Rudy Giuliani. He was mayor of New York at one time. He’s a lawyer now and spokesperson for Donald Trump.”
Late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel began his Monday night monologue on his ABC program, Jimmy Kimmel Live, with those words, referring to former mayor Giuliani’s media blitz that began last week. He then featured a clip highlighting Trump’s lawyer’s eyes, something several others have also done.
In Kimmel’s online description for the segment it states, “Giuliani gave damaging unhinged interviews (complete with crazy eyes) on Donald Trump’s behalf last week.”
During his monologue the Jimmy Kimmel Live host said,
After like 36 hours of wild, free wheeling, almost unhinged interviews on the president’s behalf last week, during which he directly contradicted statements the president made about the payment to Stormy Daniels, to the point where the president himself had to say ‘Giuliani’s new, he doesn’t know all the facts’, what did Giuliani do? He went out for a whole new round of interviews this weekend.”
Kimmel followed up with excerpts from an ABC interview with the latest member of Trump’s defense team.
“He (Giuliani) had a chat with George Stephanopoulos yesterday,” Kimmel remarked. “That finally cleared everything up once and for all.”
Kimmel included the mentioned exchange with ABC Sunday morning program, This Week, host Stephanopoulos, who asked Giuliani if President Donald Trump knew about Michael Cohen’s $130,000 payment to Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels.
