Rudy Giuliani made an appearance on Newsmax this Friday after Trump's useless lawyers cost him $83.3 million in his defamation case from E. Jean Carroll, and offered up this insane "defense" of Trump:

Trump’s onetime personal attorney, in an interview with Newsmax’s Rob Schmitt, declared that the legal system has “gone to hell” before calling U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan, who oversaw the Carroll defamation trial, a “pure disgrace.”

Last year, Kaplan presided over a separate trial in which a jury found the former president liable for sexually abusing Carroll, who has maintained that Trump raped her in the 1990s, and awarded her $5 million in damages.

“First of all, he was found not guilty — or not liable for rape,” Giuliani told Schmitt.

“It was sexual assault, not rape. And second, you can be guilty of rape and still a person can be a wacko,” added Giuliani, who himself was recently ordered to pay millions in an unrelated defamation case.

Although the jury in last year’s Carroll trial did not find Trump liable for rape, Kaplan has said that this “does not mean that she failed to prove that Mr. Trump ‘raped’ her as many people commonly understand the word ‘rape.’”

Rudy was whacked on Twitter in response:
