WASHINGTON — President Trump undercut his attorney, Rudolph W. Giuliani, on Friday, and said the former New York mayor will eventually get the facts right regarding a payment to a pornographic actress who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump.
Mr. Giuliani, who joined Mr. Trump’s legal team last month, “started a day ago,” Mr. Trump said, speaking to reporters on Friday as he left Washington to attend a National Rifle Association convention in Dallas.
“He’s a great guy,” Mr. Trump said. “He’ll get his facts straight.”
A prediction from an unimpeachable source, indeed.
One of the talking heads said this morning that Trump has about three different version of the Stormy Daniels story rolling around in his head. She added that, when you talk to him, there’s no telling which of the three stories he will tell.
It would have been good—for Trump—if he and his cronies had come together a long time ago, agreed on what lies they would tell, and then have everybody stick to them. But now, it’s too late.
