Is Giuliani just playing a lawyer on TV?

Rudy Giuliani spoke about the planned summit between North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and President Trump. I should have said that he "unfortunately spoke" about the summit.

He spoke in Tel Avi on Wednesday and was referring to the fact that the meeting was originally canceled by Trump last month,. He said that Kim "begged" for the summit in Singapore. Giuliani said that Kim "got back on his hands and knees and begged for it, which is exactly the position you want to put him in."

Why?

Even if it's true, why would Giuliani make that information public? It could put Kim in an uncomfortable position of weakness and possibly ruin the chances of a summit actually taking place.

Fortunately, Trump announced the summit is back on and White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said on Tuesday that the summit would be held at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island in Singapore.

Giuliani, the former New York mayor during the 911 World Trade Center attack in 2001, is part of the president's legal team handling the special counsel investigation led by Robert Mueller. He rejected the notion that his stupid comments might create a negative mood before the meeting, if a meeting would actually take place after he made the stupid comment.

"It is pointing out that the president is the stronger figure," Giuliani said, evidently forgetting the war of words Kim and Trump had in the past. "And you're not going to have useful negotiations unless he accepts that."

This may even be true, but making it public just rubs it in Kim's fat face and that's something the corpulent avunculicider doesn't want to lose.

Trump had written to Kim on May 24: "Based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting. Therefore, please let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place."

This came, Giuliani told the Associated Press, after Vice President Mike Pence was insulted by the North Koreans, along with National Security Adviser John Bolton [who scares the crap out of Kim] and threatened "nuclear annihilation" of the U.S. Giuliani said the president had no other option but to cancel the summit.

"President Trump didn't take that," Giuliani said. "What he did was he called off the summit [he did]."

Giuliani soon realized how he sounded to the AP and clarified about "what I mean by begging for it." He explained that after the meeting was canceled by Trump, Kim quickly changed his position and expressed his willingness to discuss denuclearization and asked to have the summit again.

Giuliani also explained that he was sharing a personal opinion with the press and was not part of the U.S. foreign policy team.

He needs to keep those types of personal opinions to himself--they can only hurt the administration, the world, and yes, even the entire galaxy.
