Get Steve Bannon and his closet full of skeletons to laugh at you if you can’t laugh at yourself. That seems to be Rudy Giuliani’s mantra on Monday, when he appeared as a guest on Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast. After Rudy expressed his belief that Christopher Columbus got a bad rap, Raw Story reported that the longstanding Trump loyalists mocked the House committee probing the January 6th Capitol insurgency, which left five people dead because… Death, delusion, and traitorism are all hilarious.
“I convicted him, he got 100 years in jail, but he got one of those mafia suites, where he could conduct business, get Italian food, and he was conducting his business from prison,” Rudy, who appeared to be calling in from the TARDIS or the afterlife, was telling Bannon about a mobster he once prosecuted: “I convicted him, he got 100 years in jail, but he got one of those mafia suites, And that was all recorded on tape.”
While it’s entirely plausible that Giuliani is equating real life with the legendary Italian-dinner-in-prison scene from Goodfellas, Bannon couldn’t resist cracking a joke and asking if that was the suite Rudy would be in when the committee locked him up on January 6th. Rudy retorted to Bannon, completely ignorant to the reality that he may very well end up on the inside of a prison cell looking out:
“I don’t intend to go without you. I mean, I’m going with you and a couple other guys that sound interesting. And I’m counting on your being able to get it hooked up. We’ll do radio and television all day.”
Sadly, that could be a best-case scenario for Giuliani, New York City’s disgraced former mayor.
