President Donald Trump reportedly is frustrated with Rudy Giuliani and others on the legal team fighting his election court battles and worries he is being made to look the fool.
NBC News reports:
The president has been complaining to aides and allies about his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and recently-removed lawyer Sidney Powell’s over-the-top performances at a news conference at the Republican National Committee headquarters last week, these people said. Both Giuliani and Powell have continued to make conspiratorial and baseless claims about widespread voter fraud, for which they have provided no evidence.
The president is concerned his team is comprised of “fools that are making him look bad,” said one source familiar with the thinking. Asked why he would not fire them, this person replied, in essence, who knows?
According to the report, Trump also was less-than-pleased with the optics of the brown liquid streaming down Giuliani’s face during a press conference last week, which was presumed to be hair dye or makeup of some type.
Giuliani got his major role on the team “by default,” according to one ally, because he’s unabashed in his support for Trump and willing to say and do things other attorneys may not.
