America's Favorite Fascist Joins Team Trump

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump since the early days of his campaign, is joining the team of lawyers representing the president in the special counsel’s Russia investigation.
The only thing that may keep Giuliani on board is that he is about as amoral a shill as one can get, other than Chris Christie. Giuliani's authoritarianism and fascist tendencies were well in evidence during his mayoralty. So he has that in common with Trump.

But Trump is impervious to legal advice. Sooner or later, if Giuliani has any integrity as a lawyer, he will have to try to tell Trump to knock off with the tweets and do what he's told. That's never going to happen. Trump has, effectively, been acting as his own lawyer and he's not going to take legal advice from anyone.

Which will end in Giuliani leaving to spend more time with his wife/girlfriend du jour.

Poor Giuliani took on the job because he needs something to do. You don't hear very much these days about the security firm he founded after he left New York's city hall. But he needs to make some bucks to pay his own lawyer — he's getting divorced for the third time. In this round, the soon-to-be ex is Judy Nathan. As you may recall, Rudy informed his previous wife, Donna Hanover, that he wanted a divorce by announcing his engagement to Judy on television.

And this on top of everything else having to do with Trump. Why haven't I bought any stock in a popcorn company?

Yours crankily,
