Giuliani was hired last month to represent Trump through the Justice Department's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. It's a concern shared by Trump allies who think Giuliani is only generating more legal and political trouble for the White House.
Giuliani released a statement Friday saying there was "no campaign violation" because the payment was not made for a campaign goal but to protect Trump's family. On Sunday, he told The Washington Post that he and Trump had struck a deal for the President to stay focused on "North Korea, Iran and China" while Giuliani handled the Mueller probe.
Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel, in a portion of his opening monologue (below) on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live", actually hauled out his chalk board to attempt to make sense of a couple of Giuliani's more bumbling statements to George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "This Week".
The one thing we do know is that Trump did or did not know what we think he knew that he has both said he knew and that he never knew, and Giuliani absolutely doesn't know what he thought he knew that Trump knew because he's new. you know? A clearly surprised Hannity then asked, "Because they funneled it through the law firm?" "And Trump might have to do it, because this weekend, Giuliani screwed him hard". Another official said without any internal White House coordination over Giuliani's television appearances, there was little hope of providing him with accurate information.
Some White House staffers have even begun comparing Giuliani's performance with Anthony Scaramucci.
Scaramucci lasted 11 days before being fired. According to Meyers, Giuliani said this was because, "Everybody's reacting to us now". Meyers wondered. "Rudy Giuliani is like a Bond villain that can't afford his own cat". "He is loyal, tough and a fierce competitor".
The former New York City mayor also suggested over the weekend that Trump was in favor of regime change in Iran, which runs counter to official USA policy. "Big compliment thank you!"
One official attributed Giuliani's free-wheeling comments to a misunderstanding of his role - which is no longer as a "principal", but as a surrogate for Trump. He also claimed those in the Trump orbit felt Giuliani may have been drinking too much.
"This isn't how we should be doing this", sighed one USA official after Giuliani's appearance on Fox.
Although Trump has hinted that such a move could be coming, there has been no formal announcement by the United States government, which is in detailed talks with North Korea at the moment to plan a historic summit between Kim and Trump.
U.S. officials have been negotiating the release of the three detained Americans, and it's widely expected they'll go free ahead of Trump's upcoming summit with Kim Jong Un.
He was due to meet US Vice-President Mike Pence , National Security Advisor John Bolton and Congressional foreign policy leaders. In a call with Theresa May on Saturday, Trump "underscored his commitment to ensure that Iran never acquires a nuclear weapon".
