Giuliani Appears to Veer Off Script. A Furor Follows. https://t.co/W87JJkreDc
— NYT Politics (@nytpolitics) May 3, 2018
Giuliani is not only mean and nasty and hate-filled, it strikes me he has lost it. His interview with Hannity was/is a disaster that will take weeks to untangle. Rudy has increased Trump’s exposure not protected it. Mueller’s team should be salivating. https://t.co/8pYqCDas5S pic.twitter.com/4LwqZvSogp

Giuliani tells me he just spoke w / POTUS. Tonight by phone. President "very pleased," Giuliani says. He says they discussed his revelation of the reimbursements long in advance. Does not expect to be fired. Insists his remarks on FNC were approved by Trump. Story TK.

Here's the moment Rudy Giuliani told Sean Hannity that "they funneled the [$130,000] through a law firm, and the president repaid it.” pic.twitter.com/udms2RUzdq

4 possible felonies from Rudy Giuliani admission:
1. $130k payment to Stormy was in-kind coordinated contribution above limits
2. Cohen was a straw donor used to cover up true source of contribution
3. False statements on financial disclosures
4. False statements on banking forms https://t.co/KysAF3X4te

It's really clever how the Deep State got Rudy Giuliani to show the world that Trump and Cohen lied about the payment to Stormy Daniels. And it used @seanhannity for this operation. Fiendishly smart!

This Giuliani interview has got to be one of the worst interviews given by someone connected to Trump… and I don't say that lightly cause there have been a lot of objectively bad ones.

Giuliani says Ivanka is a red line, but Jared is… "disposable."
Hard to tell if this is Giuliani's sense of humor, or if he's signaling that Jared is in trouble. pic.twitter.com/pvKjoaCRqY

Giuliani, after admitting the president paid off a porn star he had an affair with and covered up, reaches across the desk, clasps Sean Hannity’s arm, thanks him for being a patriot.

Earlier: West Tyrone ready to vote
— The Irish News (@irish_news) May 3, 2018
In tomorrow’s #WestTyrone by-election there will be people voting who have never known an election in NI which did not throw up the DUP and SF as the largest parties.

LT will be 'live' at the West Tyrone count tomorrow night (3/5), and will bring you an Tally-Exit poll projection soon after the polls close at 10pm. Watch-Follow LT Twitter/Facebook for all updates, & latest info. +Its an NI 1st: 1st by-election of a parliament and its a NI one! pic.twitter.com/h4osYmgFu8

Apparently the UUP are delivering a leaflet in West Tyrone saying why they didn't want to stand.
Wonder why anyone would want to vote for them after that.

3rd May is polling day in West Tyrone. It’s your chance to make a change and elect an MP that will vote against Brexit.
— SDLP (@SDLPlive) May 2, 2018
Just caught up with The View on BBC interviewing West Tyrone by-election candidates. SDLP stole the show. Alliance made good points. UUP ticked a box, but these 2 from DUP & SF take the biscuit. He thinks we’re leaving Europe not the EU & she’s a robot running off a memory card. pic.twitter.com/Pne89f2Wc4

So VP Pence called disgraced (and Trump pardoned) AZ sheriff Arpaio a "champion" of the "rule of law"?!!? That's sort of like calling Kanye West a "scholar" of "antebellum history."

The collective yawn of the media to the revelation that Trump may have faked his medical records especially after he made Clinton's health an issue is the latest reminder that he gets to play by different rules than any other politician.
