The Truth Is No Longer the Truth, According to Rudy Giuliani, But It May Be a Bagel

Rudy Giuliani is making the rounds again, talking about the Mueller probe, mostly by sacrificing his common sense in an effort to further muddy the waters. For instance, he tried to sell this line on the Trump Tower meeting to Chuck Todd on Meet the Press: “The meeting was originally for the purpose of getting information about Clinton … That was the original intention of the meeting. It turned out to be a meeting about another subject.”

In other words, Giuliani is saying, the Trump campaign intended to collude, but their intentions were thwarted by the Russians. “We’ve very dumb and evil,” Giuliani seems to say, “but we couldn’t get those Russians to play along!”

Giuliani then drops this bomb on Chuck Todd:

“The truth isn’t the truth!” How do you counter that statement? You can’t kick a field goal when the goal posts aren’t even visible in this dimension. “The truth isn’t the truth”? Then what is the truth?

Oh, well, I guess that answers that question.

Or maybe everyone is wrong, and the “truth” has been a bagel all along.
