Trump once told a caller that Rudy Giuliani drank too much, was a loose cannon, and said 'a lot of s---' that wasn't true, new book says
  • Trump told a caller that Giuliani drank too much and often said things that weren't true, a new book says.
  • Trump's aides also reportedly believed Giuliani was almost always buzzed or "in the mumble tank."
  • The book continued to say that Giuliani enjoyed unfettered access to Trump even though there was "deep resentment" and "hatred" toward him in the West Wing.
Wolff painted a damning portrait of Giuliani as he was perceived by Trump's aides and even the president himself, whom he remains deeply loyal to.

"In the days after Giuliani's return, Trump, in a nearly reflective or perhaps slightly shamed moment, explained to a caller that he knew Rudy took a drink too many, and that he was a loose cannon, and that he said a lot of s--- that was not true," the book said. "But Rudy would fight. He could be counted on to fight even when others wouldn't. And, too, he would work for free."

Trump's advisors also reportedly thought that Giuliani was almost always buzzed or "in the mumble tank," and believed he was on the verge of senility. Still, Giuliani enjoyed unfettered access to Trump despite efforts by the president's aides to block the former New York mayor from the White House, the book said.

"There was not just concern over Rudy in the West Wing, but deep resentment and even hatred of him," Wolff wrote. "'Everything Rudy has touched in the four years of this presidency,' said Matt Morgan in disgust one afternoon as the election challenge began to unfold, 'has gone bad.' You would have been hard pressed to find anyone in Trumpworld who had not thought or said as much."
