Donald Trump’s disappearing and reappearing criminal defense mascot Rudy Giuliani has been missing in action for the past few weeks, and most of us just assumed he’d spent the whole time getting lost in Home Depot while trying to buy a toaster. But it turns out Rudy was missing for good reason. Now he’s back, and – stop us if you’ve heard this one before – he may have just given something away.

It turns out Donald Trump and the rest of his legal team decided to banish Rudy Giuliani from doing any television appearances, because he’d screwed up one too many times. This is according to an inside report from Axios, which then interviewed Rudy about the matter. Rudy is insisting that he wasn’t actually banned from doing TV, and instead he went quiet for a different reason.

Giuliani claims that he went silent last month because he and Team Trump thought Robert Mueller’s report could surface at any minute, and he was waiting to see it before heading back onto TV so he could dispute it. This is nonsense, of course. But when Rudy runs his mouth like this, what he says usually ends up being half true.

We think Rudy Giuliani just gave away that Team Trump has no idea when the Mueller report will be filed, and that Donald Trump has spent the past month living in constant fear that the day could be upon him. If so, no wonder Trump has been acting increasingly frantic over the past month in general, and over the past few days in particular.
