Trump Reportedly Didn't Want Giuliani on Team After Inauguration Because He Was 'Drinking Too Much'

Former Republican congressman and Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough revealed the real reasons President Donald Trump didn't include former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani on his team was due to an alcohol abuse issue. 


“I can mention this: Everybody around Donald Trump said he was drinking too much — Donald Trump suggested as much — that was two years ago," Scarborough said. "And the fact that Donald Trump brought this guy in two years later despite his own reservations about him, almost two years ago, that’s not any, it’s not 3-D chess. That’s not even checkers, that’s a monkey throwing poo against the wall, and it doesn’t usually turn out well.”

The president notably does not drink and lost a brother to alcoholism.

Scarborough suggested Trump's recent comments about his new legal team member may mean Giuliani is already close to being booted out of the White House.
