Jimmy Kimmel: Rudy Giuliani's Job Is to Be 'Even Nuttier Than Trump'

President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani pushed back on reports that his boss is growing exhausted of his media tear, telling NBC News on Tuesday that the president was actually encouraging him to do more TV hits in the coming days.
Giuliani told CBS correspondent Paula Reid that Trump would fight a subpoena-which would likely lead to a Supreme Court standoff-but since Mueller denied their request for written responses, formal negotiations to arrange a possible interview could occur in the coming weeks. "No, the president feels that the TV interviews have organized his supporters and those who are - who understand the way in which he's been very badly treated in this situation from the very beginning". "But everybody knows that, and he gives us great encouragement that we've finally gotten on the offensive".
He believes that Giuliani's efforts have kept the headlines about Stormy Daniels in the media - a belief shared by allies that Giuliani is exposing the president to more legal and political trouble.
"If he were flustered he would have told me on Sunday", Giuliani told CNN's Dana Bash, referring to a lengthy meeting he had that day with the President at his golf resort. "He's very comfortable with the strategy we're pursuing".
More broadly, Giuliani defended not coordinating with White House staff.
"I wish they were that smart".

The "Late Night" host then turned his attention to Giuliani's recent media blitz, including a claim the lawyer made on Fox News that he's "not an expert on the facts, yet".
Giuliani, who was hired by Trump last month, says he's still learning the facts of the Mueller case and the details of Trump's knowledge of a $130,000 hush payment to adult-film actress Stormy Daniels. The former White House communications director himself drew parallels between his own burn-bright-burn-fast tenure and Giuliani's performance.
Following the leak of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's questions for President Donald Trump regarding the Russian Federation investigation, and conflicting comments by Trump and his new attorney, Rudy Giuliani, Mueller has reportedly rejected a request by Trump's legal team to answer the questions in writing rather than in person.
The Wall Street Journalreported Monday evening that Trump's lawyers hope to decide by May 17 whether to agree to a sit-down interview between Trump and Mueller-who already has said he will subpoena the president if the two sides can not reach an agreement. And Giuliani says there might be other women who also received hush money, but then again maybe not.
"The media needs to just call these what they are, lies: if not, you're just doing this to Trump", Meyers continued, playing a clip of Giuliani fawning over his imaginary cat. He also suggested the October 2016 settlement had been made because Trump was in the stretch run of his presidential campaign. But he later told NBC News that the payment had nothing to do with the campaign and was instead meant to "prevent personal embarrassment and heartache to his wife", first lady Melania Trump. Giuliani says he doesn't know when Trump knew of the payment.
Trump has changed his story several times since, initially backing up Giuliani's version in a series of tweets the next morning and later saying Giuliani didn't get his "facts straight".
