He turns on everyone eventually.

In the wake of his second impeachment at the hands of the House on Wednesday, Trump told people around him to stop paying Giuliani's legal fees.

Giuliani, who two decades ago was among the most popular politicians in the country and who, had he never gotten wrapped up with Trump, would have had a legacy as "America's Mayor" following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, has forever tarnished how he will be remembered by the public.

To be cast aside and blamed by Trump for something -- impeachment for inciting a riot -- that Giuliani could not have prevented had he wanted to?

Giuliani, having spent decades in the same New York City orbit as Trump, knew exactly who the President was -- and is.

Why then would Giuliani subject himself to the whims of Trump, knowing that, eventually, he would be the one to be pushed in front of the bus?

And so, Giuliani made the deal -- relevance (and some form of power and influence) in exchange for spending the years he was close to Trump in a defensive crouch -- waiting until it was his day to be the scapegoat.
