John Oliver Mocks Giuliani's Truth Flub: 'Don't Worry, Donald, Prison Isn't Prison'

Rudy Giuliani

On Sunday, President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani appeared on MSNBC with Chuck Todd and said that "truth isn't truth".

The problem: that widely-cited claim is untrue - a piece of "fake news" evidence, drawn from one of the indictments by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, that has fueled unfounded theories that Trump colluded with the Russians during the presidential election.

Giuliani had scolded Todd, saying, "When you tell me that [President Donald Trump] should testify, because he's going to tell the truth and he should not worry - well, that's silly, because it's somebody's version of the truth, not The Truth".

"I guess Jared is a fine man, you know that", Giuliani said.

He told the Washington Post in May that Mr Mueller and his team "may have a different version of the truth than we do".

Giuliani's exchange with host Chuck Todd produced an odd back-and-forth on the meaning of truth in the context of the Russian Federation investigation.

"Don't do this to me", Giuliani shot back, mocking Todd's gesture.

"No it isn't! Truth isn't truth!". "However, he didn't think I would tell them the truth!" The president's lawyers also say that they will fight any attempt by Mueller to issue a subpoena to Trump.

"No, it isn't truth", Giuliani responded.

In his MTP chat with Giuliani, Todd suggested the Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Kremlin-tied Russian who had promised to bring dirt on Hillary Clinton, should at least be investigated. However, attorneys Giuliani and Jay Sekulow have expressed reluctance for him to do so.

The puzzling statement, however, reflected an ongoing theme in Giuliani's interviews in defense of Trump. Maybe you know because you're a genius.

John Oliver opened his show with Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani's astonishing assertion on Meet the Press on Sunday, that "truth isn't truth".

Instead, Giuliani contradicted months of Trump-team statements that the president was not aware of a $130,000 payment during the 2016 campaign to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, which she says was "hush money" to buy her silence about an alleged affair with Trump. "Comey says, "You did talk about it", so tell me what the truth is". "If we are untethered to truth, our justice system can not function and a society based on the rule of law dissolves".

Trump, who has long attacked media with whom he disagrees as "fake news", has recently taken to describing journalists as the "enemy of the people".

During an exchange about the Mueller investigation, Giuliani used the phrase "truth isn't truth". "If we are untethered to truth, our justice system can not function and a society based on the rule of law dissolves".

Giuliani has been speaking about Comey in the news lately.
