Oh, folks, there are reports that the Trump transition team is in turmoil. It’s not. It’s not. Don’t believe it. I’m telling you, don’t believe it. I just said that and Snerdley smiled like, yeah, what a great story, yeah. They’re not in turmoil! In fact, everything I’ve heard, Pence is running it, and it is a smooth transition, and everything’s just fine with a lot of people wanting to be appointed positions. (interruption) What do you mean they purged Christie like they’re Stalinists? Who said that? Stalinist purge, Christie? Are you kidding me?
Well, look, when I read this headline to you — this is from The Politico — I want to know what is the first thing that comes to your mind. It’s a story about how Giuliani may not be suitable, may not be qualified to be secretary of anything. Are you ready for the headline? “Giuliani Took Money from Qatar, Venezuela, Iranian Exiles — His foreign clientele could present conflicts of interest as secretary of state.”
Are you kidding me? These people write this story? Have you ever heard of Hillary Clinton, Politico? Who wrote this? Isaac Arnsdorf. Hey, Isaac, have you ever heard of Hillary Clinton? You want to talk about conflict of interest? (laughing) Half of the Third World, half of the criminalized Third World has underwritten the Clinton Foundation. The whole reason for her private email server was to cover up what they were doing, taking money from people who were buying — Hillary Clinton sold this country’s foreign policies as secretary of state and was selling them on the come as a presidential candidate. It is still being investigated by the FBI.
And they write with a very straight face, I mean, they’re dead serious here. “Rudy Giuliani’s paid consulting for foreign governments would present conflicts of interest as the nation’s top diplomat that would make the Clinton Foundation look trifling.” (laughing) Rudy has taken a hundred million dollars and given away half the uranium supply of the country to Kazakhstan while enriching a Canadian industrialist?
They’re gonna pursue Rudy Giuliani like they never pursued Hillary. That’s what they’re signaling here. The whole point of this story, Rudy, you try for this stuff, we’re gonna come after you, man. We’re gonna destroy you and we’re gonna expose everything we can find about who has hired you to do what. While we’ve covered up every bit of that that we can find for Hillary, we’re gonna expose you for it. Make no mistake.
And this is the kind of stuff — I feel confident saying this. I don’t want to give too much of what I think Trump is doing away because it would alert the opposition. But I think behind the scenes this kind of stuff with Trump, he would say, “You go right ahead, it isn’t gonna matter one hill of beans. I don’t care what you say about my appointees, they’re my appointees, and if I want them in there, they’re gonna be there.”
When it comes to Trump appointing his team, the people are gonna be doing the work that he wants done, he’s gonna have the people he wants in there, and it’s gonna be very telling who he puts in there.
I wonder who Trump is in the Game of Thrones cast, who is Trump? King Joffrey? No. I’m talking about who would they portray him as being? And who would be Peter Dinklage, the dwarf? Who would that be? Who would the media say is Peter Dinklage? We could have fun doing this. It reminds me of a little game we did called Gulf War I, casting our movie after the first Gulf War.
Now, I laugh with reservations, because, folks, these people are dead serious.
