Twitter users were quick to respond with biting comments after the former prosecutor and New York City mayor revealed he would assist the president with special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election:
I love that Donald Trump has like, 3 loser friends and he just keeps giving them jobs. He's like the Adam Sandler of presidents. https://t.co/21Pw0lQKzb

Rudy Giuliani has been in talks to join Trump's personal legal team.
The show writers are literally running out of material.

Someone should tell Rudy Giuliani that unless he looks forward to being hit with a Trump adjacent indictment, he might want to reconsider. Guess his parents never told him not to hang around with the wrong element.

Trump hiring Giuliani is as if OJ Simpson hired Charles Manson to join his legal team

Mark my words, Rudy Giuliani will be the Anthony Scaramucci of Trump's legal team.

Rudy Giuliani is joining Trump's personal legal team, so now they can blame things on Hillary AND 9/11.

So how long until Trump replaces Giuliani with Piers Morgan

Trump and Giuliani deserve each other

It's almost like Trump is less interested in hiring the right person than hiring the person who was the most vocally supportive on cable television.

Can you imagine being Giuliani and spending years kissing Trump's ass in the hopes of becoming Attorney General, only to find the only job Trump will give him is personal defense attorney -- and even then he's, like, 60th choice? https://t.co/eicBmfUbJM

Unless Donald Trump wants to gentrify a city or stop and frisk Bob Mueller, I’m not sure what hiring Rudy Giuliani accomplishes. https://t.co/eR65gI9QCS
