'Truth isn't truth': Bizarre Giuliani quote sends Twitter into frenzy

Trump has disputed that. "Not the truth", Giuliani told NBC's Chuck Todd.

Several tweets said Giuliani's statement reeked of something an autocrat would say.

His reply seemed to echo controversial claims from Trump aides about facts.

Alert: another half-chilling, half-laughable Trump administration mantra is ready to add to the trophy case, in the space just beside "Alternative Facts" and "What You're Seeing..."

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's lead attorney in the ongoing Russian Federation probe, said that he will not allow special counsel Robert Mueller III to rush Trump into an interview because investigators could try to catch the president in a lie based on their version of the facts.

Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani said the 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between the then-candidate's oldest son and a Russian lawyer with ties to the Kremlin was arranged to seek information about Democrat Hillary Clinton.

"When you tell me that, you know, he should testify because he's going to tell the truth and he shouldn't worry, well that's so silly because it's somebody's version of the truth.

It turned out to be a meeting about another subject and it was not pursued at all", Giuliani responded.

"Mr. Mayor", Todd countered. "Truth isn't truth?" he asked incredulously, warning Giuliani that what he just said "is going to become a bad meme".

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief later tweeted: "Truth exists and truth matters. So tell me what the truth is". Mr Giuliani tells Todd.

GIULIANI: Yes, yes, each time by three or four days so we could write a letter in response.

I believe you are aware of the meeting - and so wondered if 3pm or later on Thursday works for you?

It prompted Oliver to label the Trump lawyer as "a one-man legal improve troupe" and the "Ken Bone of 9/11".

Trump himself has also advocated a similar interpretation of facts, saying in a speech last month, as Inquisitr reported, "Remember, what you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening". Todd spluttered, his face contorted with disbelief.

"In fairness to Giuliani - the Ken Bone of 9/11 - that was not the dumbest thing he said in that interview", Oliver warned his viewers.

The president denies any collusion, and has repeatedly called the Mueller probe "a witch hunt".

Trump's acknowledgment raised new questions on the extent of Russia's attempts to influence the election, including any legal or moral obligation for his campaign to submit offers of foreign assistance to authorities.
