Now that is the audacity of hope right there.

Rudolph W. Giuliani, who has helped oversee a string of failed court challenges to President Trump’s defeat in the election, asked the president’s campaign to pay him $20,000 a day for his legal work, multiple people briefed on the matter said.
The request stirred opposition from some of Mr. Trump’s aides and advisers, who appear to have ruled out paying that much, and it is unclear how much Mr. Giuliani will ultimately be compensated.
Since Mr. Giuliani took over management of the legal effort, Mr. Trump has suffered a series of defeats in court and lawyers handling some of the remaining cases have dropped out.
A $20,000-a-day rate would have made Mr. Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who has been Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer for several years, among the most highly compensated attorneys anywhere.
Reached by phone, Mr. Giuliani strenuously denied requesting that much.
“I never asked for $20,000,” said Mr. Giuliani, saying the president volunteered to make sure he was paid after the cases concluded. “The arrangement is, we’ll work it out at the end.”
He added that whoever had said he made the $20,000-a-day request “is a liar, a complete liar.”
Ah, so we know it’s true.
Well, I would be willing to bet big money that Giuliani will never receive anything close to twenty thousand a day if he even gets paid at all.
Trump is notorious for skipping out on the bill, and if he loses these cases he may not feel he should bother to pay for his defeat.
If Giuliani is smart is has an expense account and is running up huge bills every single day that he is on this fool’s errand.
