‘If you can’t pay off a porn star this isn’t America’: Fox News’ Outnumbered tries to make sense of Giuliani ‘bombshell’

Fox News’ John Roberts reported that despite Cohen insisting he “did not receive reimbursement for the payment” to Daniels, Trump on Thursday wrote, “ Cohen, an attorney, received a monthly retainer, not from the campaign and having nothing to do with the campaign.”

“Yesterday at some point, the president and the president’s outside attorneys Rudy Giuliani said, ‘You know what? The best thing to do in this case is to get ahead of it,’” Roberts said of Giuliani’s decision to tell Fox News’ Sean Hannity about Trump’s repayment.

The Fox News reporter noted “the staff at the White House had no clue what was going on.”

“There’s no question it was a bombshell when Rudy Giuliani dropped it last night on Hannity,” Roberts said.

Kennedy Montgomery replied, “If you can’t pay off a porn star in this country, these are no longer the United States of America, number one.”

“Number two, I think that you have two Giulianis here,” Kennedy continued. “Brilliant legal mind, the shrewd politician who can be helpful to the president. But then you have the Rudy Giuliani who lacks self awareness, who tends to shoot from the hip, and says things that, you know, perhaps he intended to say that Michael Cohen had been paid off.

I think part of that was weighing the potential campaign finance violations versus the president’s reputation for being ensconced with some one like Ms. Clifford (Daniels).

“At the same time, he opens up the president to so much more skepticism and criticism saying that Michael Cohen was there to take care of these things,” Kennedy continued. “That’s what is problematic, there might be other things like this.”
