Rudy Giuliani calls CNN 'disgusting' to Chris Cuomo’s face

Rudy Giuliani defended President Trump on CNN for more than half an hour Friday morning — but he sure wasn't happy about it.

Giuliani, one of Trump's attorneys in the Russia probe, appeared on New Day to decry the "witch hunt" against the president and criticize Trump opponents like the FBI and its former director, James Comey, as well as the very network he was on.

Host Chris Cuomo relentlessly pressed Giuliani on his arguments, which rubbed the lawyer the wrong way. "Does the president ever get the benefit of the doubt with you, Chris?" asked Giuliani. "Ever? Or on this network? Which is disgusting."

Cuomo brushed the comment off, but Giuliani persisted, claiming that people said he was "crazy" to appear on CNN and calling the entire interview unfair. "I don't think you've given me a chance to explain how [unjust] this case is," Giuliani said. Cuomo pointed out that Giuliani had been given plenty of airtime to say whatever he wanted, but Giuliani complained that Cuomo had interrupted him and presented counterpoints.
