In today’s episode of The Michael Knowles Show, Michael defends Rudy Giuliani, and explains his "Truth isn't truth" comment. He also breaks down how uninterested the Left are in the truth.
"The Democrats and the Left here are not interested in the truth. They're interested in taking down Donald Trump," Knowles said. "Which is a great point that Rudy Giuliani is making. He's saying no, no, no, the thing that you're calling the truth here – that's not the truth, which is why we have to be careful. What Chuck Todd is trying to do is lure the Trump legal defense, lure Giuliani, lure the president into playing a game on a dishonest playing field. They are playing dishonestly but say no, no, we'll treat you fairly. No, we'll treat you fairly. Well, we've treated you fairly so far, haven't we?"
"There's no evidence of that. It's been horrifically unfair," Knowles added.
Video and transcript below:
Oh, crazy Giuliani, there he goes again. This isn't even that inarticulate. Certainly, the phrase “truth isn't truth” taken out of context is absurd. It sounds like Pontius Pilate talking to Christ, but that's why we need context. What Giuliani is reacting to is Chuck Todd saying: “Well, that's the truth. It's the truth. It's the truth,” and what Rudy Giuliani is saying [is] no, man you guys are spinning the truth, you and the Democrats and the forces that are trying to attack president Trump.
There were two narratives here and the question that Rudy Giuliani is asking is: Who is Mueller gonna believe? His pal James Comey or President Trump? Where is the truth? Who's going to get hit with the truth? How are people gonna bend the truth? How are the mainstream media going to bend the truth?
That's what's happening. They're trying to turn Rudy Giuliani into Pontius Pilate or some Orwellian figure.
This is absurd. Here's how you know this is absurd.
Because the left denies objective truth. The left denies it these days. This is why the Daily Wire exists. Because we say that facts don't care about your feelings. Because the Left says there's no such thing as objectivity. You had those teachers in Massachusetts just a couple of weeks ago. They said objectivity is a dangerous weapon against social justice. There is no objective truth. It's all subjective. It's all about feelings.
The right is the group that says politics has to rely on objective facts and of objective reality and the left says no, that's from your point of view. That's your white privilege. That's you invalidating our experiences. No, it's just interest groups butting up against one another.
That is absurd and what Rudy Giuliani is doing is calling attention to that absurdity and that abuse of truth.
I mean they got him. Right? This is an example of Chuck Todd having that gotcha moment and that's the headline that has become a meme, just like Chuck Todd says, but the point that Rudy Giuliani is making is actually the opposite of that.
And it's very important. That's an important point for him to be making because in this case, the Left is not interested in the truth. Chuck Todd says well, when it comes to the Mueller investigation, it's just the truth.
Right it's just the truth.
Okay, if you're interested in the truth Lefty's, Mueller investigation, resistance, impeachment squad, if you're interested in the truth, how come we haven't looked at that Clinton email server?
Why did Hillary Clinton wipe her entire email server? How come we haven't looked at that DNC server?
How come Paul Manafort is indicted but Tony Podesta isn't indicted? How come the only trial that's come out of this investigation is against Paul Manafort for alleged crimes he committed long before the Trump campaign and crimes which basically amount to buying nice suits? How come the 2016 election isn't being brought up in the trial of Paul Manafort? How come Donald Trump isn't being brought up? How come Russian interference in the election isn't being brought up?
If you're so interested in truth, where are the investigations of the Democrats? Where's Tony Podesta who worked with Paul Manafort?
But Tony Podesta is a big Democrat. He's a big Democrat operative, so he doesn't get pulled in. Hillary Clinton, she gets off the hook. Hillary Clinton destroyed federal records, mishandled federal record, clearly engaged in paid-to-play, though I suppose we'll never have the proof for certain because she wiped her email server. Where are the investigations? It's just the truth right? Isn't it just the truth?
The Democrats and the left here are not interested in the truth. They're interested in taking down Donald Trump. Which is a great point that Rudy Giuliani is making. He's saying no, no, no, the thing that you're calling the truth here – that's not the truth, which is why we have to be careful. What Chuck Todd is trying to do is lure the Trump legal defense, lure Giuliani, lure the president into playing a game on a dishonest playing field. They are playing dishonestly but say no, no, we'll treat you fairly. No, we'll treat you fairly. Well, we've treated you fairly so far, haven't we?
There's no evidence of that. It's been horrifically unfair.
