How stupid do you have to be to not know something is wrong when Trump tells you to tell his own lawyer something. The reason Trump asked him to begin with was because Goodhair is dumb enough to fall for it.

If he can't afford ten months of $1000 an hour lawyers, then CYA is his only other option.

Or else just another distraction to mislead and disappoint us?

He would know tons from when he was mayor. He may have been covering for Trump for decades. If so, why would he stop now?

I wonder if Rick knows he done goofed again.

I bet, to him, it sounds like: "Golly gee you guys. The president was just protecting America when he told us we had to 'talk with Rudy' first."

I hope not. When he thinks, this is how he thinks. Mean and crooked.
