“APPARENTLY INEBRIATED”: Rudy Giuliani does not take Liz Cheney’s accusations of drunkenness very well
On day two of the January 6th Committee’s hearings, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) said the quiet parts out loud, calling out former Trump attorney — and Big Lie pusher — Rudy Giuliani for being drunk on the job. Cheney stated before the day’s testimonies began:
“President Trump rejected the advice of his campaign experts on election night, and instead followed the course recommended by an apparently inebriated Rudy Giuliani to just claim he won.”
Rep. Liz Cheney said former President Trump "followed the course recommended by an apparently inebriated Rudy Giuliani, to just claim he won, and insist that the vote counting stop — to falsely claim everything was fraudulent."

“Former Trump Campaign Senior Advisor Jason Miller — a known loyalist and ally to the twice-impeached Trump — admitted to seeing Giuliani intoxicated on election night. The same night, Miller, Bill Stepien, and others tried to reason with the unreasonable narcissist who could not accept that his loss was legitimate. It was Giuliani who urged the outgoing President to claim victory despite the fact that he had achieved nothing of the sort. White House columnist Brian Karem:
NOW: @JasonMillerinDC just testified @RudyGiuliani was drunk election night! While Miller said Trump should NOT declare victory… Giuliani said "We need to say we won" and that anyone who didn't agree with that "was weak". pic.twitter.com/hVKj3sxtEO

These statements made the disgraced former attorney none too happy. Giuliani wasted no time in criticizing Liz Cheney — and proving her point in the process — while appearing as a guest on former White House advisor Steve Bannon’s show earlier today.
In an inconsistent and incohesive rant, Giuliani covered all the GOP hits. From insisting it was a “frame” that began five years ago, adding the investigation into the former guy’s quid pro quo request of Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, to his litany of paranoid perceived political assaults against Trump. He went on to insinuate that claims of Russian collusion were unwarranted and accused Antifa of organizing the Capitol breach. He also blamed Antifa for the death of the trespassing insurrectionist rioter, Ashli Babbitt.
Giuliani even managed to get in an anti-Semitic insult when he referred to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) as “shifty Schiff,” a term frequently used by Donald Trump and one tainted by anti-Jewish sentiment.
Rudy Giuliani is lashing out at today's Jan. 6 hearing by calling Liz Cheney "completely hysterical" and "off her deep end." And he is also pushing the baseless conspiracy theory that Antifa killed Ashli Babbitt. pic.twitter.com/NmpU0QzJQK

We have all witnessed the downfall of “America’s mayor,” and it’s been tough to watch. It’s difficult to believe that the same man who took charge after the 9/11 terrorist attacks has now been reduced to a punchline on a good day. A man who has publicly embarrassed himself on too many occasions to count, and whose commitment to the Big Lie cost him his law license. First, New York suspended Giulian’s license in June 2021 for “false and misleading” statements relating to the 2020 election and triggered a suspension to practice in Washington D.C.
That looks like it was the right move to take after those in Trump’s inner circle have confirmed under oath that all those times we assumed Giuliani was intoxicated on the job, we were absolutely right.
