Giuliani To Bannon: The “Weasels” At WABC Fired Me Because They’re “Secretly” In Cahoots With Dominion

Media Matters has the transcript:

STEVE BANNON (HOST): New York Times lead story is you’ve been fired by WABC, John Catsimatidis, your show has been canceled. Any truth? Because the New York Times is full of fake news, is this true?

RUDY GIULIANI (GUEST): It’s absolutely true. We’re also the leading show at 3 o’clock in New York, leading Hannity, for that matter.

BANNON: Hold it. You were fired — hang on. You were fired, I want to be very specific, you were fired according to the New York Times because you talked about the 2020 election and John Catsimatidis says there’s nothing but fallacies.

GIULIANI: I’ve talked about it on that station I would say a thousand times. They now tell me there was a policy that I wasn’t allowed to talk about the 2020 elections. I never heard about the policy until yesterday. And what they wanted me to agree to, to retain my job, knowing that I’m in fairly difficult financial circumstances – and they also, by the way, leaked this before they told me, which will give you an idea of what dishonorable people they are.

BANNON: WABC and John Catsimatidis and all the hosts over there, let me be blunt. Donald J. Trump won the 2020 election, Biden stole it, Biden is illegitimate, and if any of the hosts want to come on or Catsimatidis wants a lesson on this, we will go through chapter and verse.

GIULIANI: They’re sucking up behind Newmax’s back with Dominion. John and the president of Dominion have had secret talks for the last three or four years. It’s now come to the point where Newsmax is raising in the lawsuit, why did WABC get special treatment? How come Giuliani is allowed to talk about this all the time and they want to depose John. And John is trying to avoid turning anything over, deposing anything, and that’s why it comes up now.

BANNON: John Catsimatidis didn’t call you in and didn’t sit you down and explain all this and walk you through it?

GIULIANI: You think they got the guts to do all that? Get out of here. They’re a bunch of weasels. C’mon. People that do this kind of stuff are not strong men. They wouldn’t sit down man to man. Every time I sat down man to man with John all he would do is give me bull.
