Rudy Giuliani’s Shocking Claim: ‘Truth Isn’t The Truth’

“Mr. Mayor, do you realize... this is going to become a bad meme,” said NBC’s Todd, clearly perplexed by Giuliani’s stunning claim.


Former New York mayor and President Donald Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani has been giving bombshell interviews — one after the other.

But he may have surpassed them all with his latest claim: “Truth isn’t the truth.”

Mind boggling.

In an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Giuliani said he is concerned about Trump sitting to do an interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller because he may fall into a “perjury trap” with regards to the Russian investigation into the 2016 presidential elections.

The former New York mayor said critics claiming Trump should not worry about doing the interview if he is telling the truth are “silly.”

“Look, I’m not going to be rushed into having [Trump] testify so that he gets trapped into perjury,” Giuliani told Todd. “When you tell me that... 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.”

Todd interjected, “Truth is truth.”

To which, Giuliani came up with the most astonishing of replies:

“No it isn’t! Truth isn’t truth!” He responded. “The president of the United States says, ‘I didn’t ―’”

“Mr. Mayor, do you realize... this is going to become a bad meme,” Todd interrupted.

Trump has reportedly pressed his legal team on having the interview with Mueller, despite aversion from his lawyers.

The POTUS’ attorney thinks he may incriminate himself if he sits down for the interview, specifically about the infamous February 2017 meeting with former FBI Director James Comey about giving former national security adviser Michael Flynn “a break.” Giuliani said he was worried Mueller could claim the president lied under oath about the said meeting.

“Trump says, ‘I didn’t tell him.’ And the other guy says that he did say it,” Giuliani said. “Which is the truth?”

Giuliani’s statement clearly indicates he doesn’t understand the concept of an “investigation” — that is Trump’s remarks would be “investigated” and if he is speaking the truth, he will have nothing to fear.

After all, there can only be one version of truth. Not according to Giuliani though.

Twitter users, however, took it upon themselves to school Giuliani about what actually truth means. Many also talked of the danger of the former New York mayor undermining the value of truth.











During the same interview, Giuliani repeated the admission that another infamous meeting, the 2016 Trump Tower meeting, was actually to get “dirt” on then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The Trump legal team had to go through “many versions of truth,” in order to finally admit what the meeting was about. They initially claimed the meeting was about Russian children adoption. Later, there was added debate on whether or not Trump dictated the Trump Tower meeting statement; after various claims, it was revealed that he did.

“The meeting was originally for the purpose of getting information about Clinton,” Giuliani told NBC. “That was the original intention of the meeting. It turned out to be a meeting about another subject and it was not pursued at all.”
