The question of the week: Is President Trump’s lawyer, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, incompetent or up to something?
Giuliani made a disastrous appearance on Chris Cuomo’s “Prime Time” on CNN in which he actually uttered the words: “I never said there was no collusion between the campaign or between people in the campaign…I have not. I said the President of the United States.”

Giuliani then claimed that reports that the Trump campaign shared polling data with Russian agents would not constitute collusion. “How is it not?” said Cuomo.
“Well, because polling data is given to everybody,” Giuliani said. “I mean, he shouldn’t have given it to them. That’s wrong to give it to them.”
It’s becoming more and more possible to consider that that the president’s lawyer actually isn’t on his side after all.
Maybe Giuliani is out only to protect himself. Or maybe he’s just the worst lawyer in history.
