Want to see Rudy Giuliani when he’s working on all cylinders?
If so, you will greatly enjoy this encounter with Chuck Todd from the April 21 edition of Meet The Press, when there was a brief re-emergence of the old Giuliani.
Here is what I wrote about it at the time…
Giuliani blew Todd away so completely, and defended President Trump so effectively, that it should be a case study for political science students from now on, to show how it is done… and a case study for journalism students to learn what can happen when an arrogant lightweight partisan like Chuck Todd goes up against somebody as brilliant, knowledgeable and capable as the old, resurrected version of Rudy Giuliani.
Todd was reduced to breaking in and lamely reciting little more than Democrat talking points, which Giuliani effortlessly deflected, while putting a hurt on Todd that he won’t soon forget.
…and here is the video:
Wow. And double wow. What a world-class whomping. A half year later, and I’d bet Todd is still chafing from the butt-kicking he got.
Mr. Giuliani’s performance in that video is why it is so difficult to watch him when he is not working on all those cylinders…and why, with great regret, I consider it necessary that President Trump thank Mr. Giuliani profusely for his service, and let him go.
