Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said loose cannon Rudy Giuliani, 74, does not speak for the administration when it comes to foreign policy.
He took a jab at Rudy June 7, a day after the New York former Mayor said Kim Jung-un got "down on his knees and begged for the summit."
Marc Short, White House legislative director, took the rebuke of Rudy up a notch, telling CNN's Situation Room that Guiliani does not speak for the administration, period.
The Pompeo and Short slap-downs of Rudy beg the question: Why is he hanging around?
It's not like Donald Trump needs a mouthpiece.
Reckless Rudy certainly doesn't speak for Melania Trump.
She apparently was a bit ticked after Rudy blurted out that the First Lady had told him that she believed her husband's denials that he had an affair with porn star Stormy Daniels.
False news, responded Stephanie Grisham, spokeswoman for the First Lady.
In fact, Melania Trump hasn't "ever discussed her thoughts on anything with Giuliani," Grisham told New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman.
Michael Avenatti, Daniels' media savvy lawyer, summed up Rudy's verbal meanderings very well, tweeting "Rudy is making it up as he goes along."
That's pretty risky considering Giuliani's rumblings provide grist for special counsel's Robert Mueller's probe into Team Trump's dalliances with the Russians and lots of other fun stuff.
The president is said to be fiercely loyal to his supporters, and God knows Rudy Loves The Donald.
All good things however must come to an end.
A Quinnipiac University poll released June 6 gave Rudy a 29 percent favorability rating. That's a plunge from the 57 percent favorability rating that he notched in the poll of Feb. 21, 2017.
Meanwhile, Rudy's unfavorable ratings doubled to 44 percent over the same time frame. The guy's on a roll, unfortunately his momentum is heading south.
What's the point in sticking around? Rudy is an out-of-control windbag rather than an effective spokesperson for the White House.
He's in the running to wrestle the in-it-way-over-his-head crown from The Mooch, Team Trump former communications director.
Rudy should say good-bye to DC and his buddy Donald and take a nice long vacation. We need it.
