Giuliani Condemns Rioters After Egging Them On

Axios reports:

President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani condemned violence by pro-Trump mobs as “shameful” on Thursday morning, more than 18 hours after calling for “trial by combat” at a “Save America” Trump rally that preceded the Capitol insurrection.

Giuliani’s tweets Thursday, which described the violence as “rejected, condemned and counter productive,” stood in sharp contrast to the comments he and President Trump made at Wednesday’s rally, where they encouraged supporters to continue fighting the election results and march to the Capitol.

Giuliani, who is a former federal prosecutor, still referred to Wednesday’s insurrection as being “as criminal as the rioting and looting this summer” at anti-racism protests around the country.
