Donald Trump spent the majority of his 2016 campaign swearing up and down that he would “only hire the best.” And after his attorney Rudy Giuliani found himself in one messy CNN interview this evening, we’ve finally discovered just exactly what his standards for “the best” are — and quite frankly, they’re not high.
It’s no secret that despite his best efforts in public speaking arrangements as well as on his personal Twitter account to convince the public of otherwise, Trump is absolutely terrified of his political opponent, Democratic 2020 hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden.
And frankly, he has good reason to be. Biden is positively crushing him in virtually every poll around, despite his recent gaffes. It seems that people are far more willing to overlook the little things nowadays if it means that they can finally be rid of the atrocity that is Donald Trump and the absolute havoc that he continues to wreak on our nation.
Trump is so scared of the man, in fact, that his own lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, has been grasping at every conceivable straw in an attempt to find some dirt to bury him with — including the straw that is Ukraine.
Of course, both Trump and Rudy both have attempted to vehemently deny that they’re requested assistance from the country of Ukraine in taking down the presidential hopeful and Trump’s biggest competition. But here’s the thing — while Rudy is equally as shitty and shady as Donald, he’s also an equally terrible liar.
And Giuliani proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt tonight when a CNN host questioned him as to whether or not he requested that Ukraine investigate Joe Biden.
Rudy pulled a Trump move if ever there were one when he blatantly denied asking the country to investigate the Democratic forerunner before turning around less than 30 seconds later and publicly admitting that he did, in fact, as Ukraine to do just that.
“Did you ask Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden?” the CNN host questioned the Trump attorney.
“No, actually I didn’t,” Rudy vehemently replied before going off on a tangent about Hilary Clinton and then stating that he did, actually ask for an investigation into Biden, as well.
“So you did ask Ukraine to look into Joe Biden?” Cuomo asked once again.
“Of course I did!” Giuliani fired back.
It’s worth noting here that this is an even bigger deal, considering the whistleblower fiasco that is currently going down within Trump’s administration — considering we still have no information regarding who the foreign leader could be. It’s now looking as though it could certainly be Ukraine.
And there you have it, folks. The corruption does not get plainer than this.

Giuliani: No, actually I didn’t.
