Rudy Guiliani Clarifies "Truth Isn’t Truth" As "He Said She Said"

Obviously the most attention-grabbing aspect of former NY mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani's interview on Sunday's "Meet the Press" was his casual dismissal of the concept of objective reality.

"When you tell me that, you know, he should testify because he's going to tell the truth and he shouldn't worry, well that's so silly because it's somebody's version of the truth, not the truth", Giuliani told Chuck Todd on NBC's Meet the Press. He dismissed the idea of Trump having any foreknowledge about Russia's efforts, or potentially obstructing the subsequent inquiry. And Todd, wise to the ways of modern media, correctly predicted it would become a "bad meme".

The younger Trump replied: "If it's what you say I love it".

Nah, he just meant sometimes truth can't be determined because of the classic "he said, she said puzzle".

According to Last Week Tonight host John Oliver, the "one-man legal improv troupe" sat down with host Chuck Todd and "came with a rationale for his boss' refusal to sit down with [Robert] Mueller that is, even by Giuliani standards, very Giuliani".

Rudolph Guiliani dove back into the Truth quagmire today, explaining that when he said yesterday on Meet the Press that "truth isn't truth", he was not indulging in some moral theology pontification (his words). The outreach was being conducted, that first email said, "as part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

"No, no, no ... don't do this to me", said Giuliani, putting his hand to his head. "If someone said, I have information about your opponent, you would take that meeting". Comey says you did talk about it.

In January previous year Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway told Todd's programme, Meet the Press, that the White House was entitled to present "alternative facts".

"People who lie are held accountable", he continued.

In fact, in context, the most absurd position Rudy's taken lately isn't that "truth isn't truth" but that he and Trump are happy to chat with Mueller about collusion (just not obstruction of justice).

"Truth isn't truth. The President of the United States says, "I didn't ..."
