Rachel Maddow: Trump's selection of Giuliani as a lawyer is proof that it’s a sham

Rachel Maddow returned to her program Thursday night, following Rudy Giuliani, the man who now oversaw Donald Trump's near-profitable efforts to scrap the presidential election results.

The MSNBC host said Trump's decision to put Giuliani in command is an indication that it is just another scam with no chance of success.

"It was Rudy Giuliani … fresh from the indictment against the president, fresh from the failed Russian intelligence operation Hunter Biden, which he wanted to carry out in the election campaign. Of all dearest souls, he would from now on pursue the president's legal strategy," said Maddow .

"If Giuliani does this, I mean honestly, maybe it means this is over," she added.

Maddow said:

A mouth of hell opened in the earth's crust, and despite all the other people who were supposed to be responsible for litigation the day after the elections, it was Rudy Giuliani who emerged from a burping fire hole underfoot, and we learned he was fresh The president was charged fresh from the failed Russian intelligence operation Hunter Biden, which he was campaigning to carry out. Of all the precious souls, from now on he would follow the president's legal strategy, which has been very pretty ever since, just as we saw it today. And honestly, with not even his campaign and not even his kind of handpicked political henchmen who don't and Giuliani who run this, I honestly mean, maybe that means this is over.

Everything Giuliani touches is failure

As Rachel Maddow hinted on Thursday evening, Rudy Giuliani humiliated himself at every turn in the Trump era – be it the Ukraine scandal that accused Trump or the discredited Hunter Biden story he claimed she was would doom Biden's candidacy to failure.

The same dynamic is playing out now as Giuliani tries to steal the election for Trump by going on live TV and making a fool of himself. These performances are exactly the reason why no one outside of the fact-free MAGA bubble takes the former New York mayor seriously anymore.

Rudy Giuliani is a laughing stock, and the fact that he is now leading the legal operation of the Trump campaign means the end will come sooner rather than later.
