Rudy Giuliani Butt Dialed a Reporter and Left Accidental Voicemails Talking About the Bidens and His Need for Money
President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani is known for making constant gaffes in attempts to defend his client.
Giuliani butt-dialed an NBC reporter not once, but twice, leaving two different voicemails.
In the first, he can be heard discussing international dealings and the need for cash, but it's unclear to whom he's speaking and the context of the conversation is hard to decipher.
After expressing the need to send the other participant in the conversation to Bahrain, Giuliani says:
“The problem is we need some money. [silence passes] We need a few hundred thousand."
It's unclear what delegation is being sought in Bahrain, if any.
In the second call, Giuliani and his associate berate the Bidens, repeating baseless claims that Biden used his office of Vice President to boost his son's business dealings.
“There’s plenty more to come out. He did the same thing in China. And he tried to do it in Kazakhstan and in Russia. It’s a sad situation. You know how they get? Biden has been been trading in on his public office since he was a senator.”
He then begins slamming Hunter Biden.
“When he became vice president, the kid decided to go around the world and say, ‘Hire me because I’m Joe Biden’s son.’ And most people wouldn’t hire him because he had a drug problem.”
While none of the voicemails are particularly damning, Twitter didn't know whether to laugh or cry at the sheer stupidity of the incidents.
