Rabid Rudy just won’t fade away

In 1951, Douglas MacArthur, grand poobah of the armies and supreme egomaniac, announced his retirement by telling Congress, “Old soldiers never die, they just fade away.”

That was then.

Nowadays, old soldiers and politicians and grifters and lawyers fight to their dying breath to not fade away. For example, Rudy Giuliani spent a decade and a half praising himself for having been mayor of New York in 2001 when those two planes took out the twin towers. As Joe Biden famously said, “…There’s only three things [Giuliani] mentions in a sentence ā€” a noun and a verb and 9/11…”

But something new has come up. Giuliani, who more than ever looks and speaks like a rabid chipmunk, has elbowed his way back into the news by becoming the new legal rodent on Donald Trump’s sinking ship, where he’s quickly proven to be even dumber than long-time Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

On Wednesday night, Giuliani told Fox News talking head and Trump ass-wipe Sean Hannity that Trump had reimbursed Cohen for the $130,000 Cohen said he gave porn star Stormy Daniels to keep her from going public about having an affair with Trump. This, of course, directly contradicted Trump’s claim that he knew nothing about a payoff to Daniels.

Stormy’s hired gun Michael Avenatti reacted to Giuliani’s remarks by telling CNN ā€œI said it weeks ago, Iā€™m going to say it again: Mr. Trump will not serve out his term. No way. No how. He will be forced to ultimately resign. This is a bombshell.ā€

A bombshell Trump set off by scraping the bottom of the barrel to find a lawyer who will delay the inevitable. Giuliani is doing the opposite. We should thank him for not fading away.

  1. Plutocrats are always in search of relevance.
    Oligarchs don’t much care about being relevant because they already have more money then they are morally entitled to.

    But plutocrats are a whole different breed.

    Why just the other day Hillary said that a lot of Democrats didn’t vote for her in 2016 because she is “a Capitalist.”
    She’s correct of course.

    Plutocrats are amoral about all things except money.
    Money, and the accumulation of money, is the religion of the plutocrats.

    “Keep your hands off my stack.”

  2. Fergus will, in fact, serve out his term. He is far too narcissistic to ever resign, and any removal mechanism requires a two-thirds vote in the senate that will just never happen. We just have to try and exploit the growing backlash to his constant stream of scandal to beat him in the 2020 election, which is not anything like a sure bet given how the Republicans cheat.
