Rudy Giuliani is making the rounds on Sunday’s political talk circuit and he’s in rare, absurd form as he attempts to defend Donald Trump’s tax practices and the candidate’s comments about Hillary Clinton on Saturday. Not only does he call Trump “a genius” for avoiding taxes, but he offers an absurd defense for Trump’s false claims that Hillary is cheating on her husband Bill Clinton. Giuliani offers up every excuse possible for Trump’s comments, but Jake Tapper doesn’t budge and actually gets fairly heated at the former NYC mayor’s spin:
The accusation was that Hillary Clinton was cheating on Bill! That’s what the accusation was! It was an unhinged and wild accusation! I can understand why you can’t defend it because it’s indefensible.
All of this would take attention away from the discussion on Trump’s leaked tax return, revealed in a shocking report from the New York Times. The reason it doesn’t is because Giuliani’s defense of Trump’s tax antics is equally as absurd and baseless, with Rudy tossing around the word genius in reference to Trump:
