If one more liberal:
1. Calls Giuliani stupid;
2. Says Giuliani is not serving his client (Trump’s) interests;
3. Fails to see that Giuliani is expertly prophylactically inoculating Trump by continually preparing us for Trump’s ever more obvious crimes; or
4. Believes these planted stories like the one in today’s The Hill about Trump being “apoplectic” about Giuliani,
I’m going to be reaffirmed in my belief in P.T. Barnum’s maxim that “Nobody ever lost a dollar by underestimating the taste of the American public.”
Giuliani is continuing to brilliantly manipulate us by moving the goal posts like a champ.
Otherwise brilliant pundits from John Heilemann to Lawrence O’Donnell and even Rachel Maddow continue to buy it by saying Giuliani is either senile or incompetent. WRONG.
Let’s observe what Giuliani is actually doing before it is too late. He is expertly altering what is normal and what is shocking by ‘accidently’ preparing the public for facts ranging from Trump Tower negotiations in the middle of the 2016 campaign (old) to the potential existence of tapes (new).
Wake up and pay attention.
