In case you hadn’t noticed, the Trump campaign is desperately trying to drum-up the news of its meticulously planned October surprise. The surprise is supposed to convince people that Joe Biden – through Hunter, who is actually not the presidential candidate, we confirmed this critical detail – received millions and billions through Ukraine and China and every other country with which Trump can confuse people. Now, the October surprise loses a lot of its punch when the year before we heard the “perfect phone call” about “needing a favor,” and the CIA telling Trump that the Russians were using Rudy to slip perfect disinformation to perfect outlets. (“Fox,” Kayleigh).
Yesterday, Michael Cohen was interviewed about this new material “discovered” on a laptop that – get this – was provided to Giuliani through a questionable source. What are the odds? Host Ari Melber quickly asked Cohen whether Rudy was a trustworthy source on these materials. The answer was an unequivocal, “No.” LINK: 
“Trump speaks and behaves like the mob boss and this is what he’s doing,” Cohen added. “He’s using his soldier, but the problem here is that Rudy isn’t a soldier. Rudy is — Rudy is drunk all the time, which is a big problem and that’s what makes him susceptible because his faculties are gone. He behaves crazy.”
Melber pressed, wanting to know if this was an opinion or something that Cohen had “seen.”
“No, no, I’ve seen him drink to the point like he’s a high school drunk,” Cohen claimed. “And it makes him susceptible. He takes the information that he gets and provides it to the president and simply because Rudy — who used to be considered, you know, I mean, a real litigator and he was considered to be America’s Mayor — he’s now really just a joke. And he takes it right back to Trump and Trump listens to it.”
This website never ever jokes or makes light of a substance abuse issue or alcoholism. It isn’t a funny subject and has destroyed far too many families. It’s a bullshit move to try to make something light of this like like far too many websites are doing.
The issue is twofold. One, Rudy needs help or he isn’t going to live long. Two, and more obviously, this is a major international security threat – though it is somewhat abated by the fact that Trump clearly knows that Rudy is bringing him the latest propaganda. Trump doesn’t actually believe this stuff that Rudy is providing. But plenty of Americans DO. And that divides the country further. That makes it a huge issue. Rudy should be nowhere near any power, Russian or American because addiction/alcoholism (untreated) is one of the first, and easiest ways, to lose a security clearance or access to critical information.
