‘Rudi Can’t Fail’


The White House finds itself with another headline scandal this week.

New Trump Administration lawyer, and former New York City mayor, Rudi Giuliani revealed on “Hannity” that the President did reimburse his former lawyer Michael Cohen claiming that the payout was to save, among other things, Donald and Melania’s marriage.

Then Giuliani went on “Fox and Friends” the next morning adding that, while the payment was personal, how bad would it have been if the scandal had surfaced right before the election.

What a funny thing to say, Pinocchio.

In the meantime Trump has tweeted he is standing by Giuliani because his new representation is recent to the case.

The lyrics to The Clash’s track “Rudie Can’t Fail” off the 1977 album “London Calling” seem to sum up the story perfectly.

Sing, Michael, sing

On the route of the nineteen bus

Hear them sayin’

How you get a rude and a reckless?

Don’t you be so crude and feckless

You been drinking brew for breakfast

Rudie can’t fail

We reply

I know that my life make you nervous

But I tell you that I can’t live in service

Like the doctor who was born for a purpose

Rudie can’t fail

I went to the market to realize my soul

What I need I just don’t have

First they curse, then they press me till I hurt

We say Rudie can’t fail

First you must cure your temper

Then you find a job in a paper

You need someone for a savior

Oh, Rudie can’t fail

We reply

Now we get a rude and a reckless

We been seen lookin’ cool an’ speckless

We been drinking brew for breakfast

Rudie can’t fail

I went to the market to realize my soul

‘Cause what I need I just don’t have

First they curse, then they press me till I hurt

Rudie can’t fail

Okay! Okay!

So where you want to go today?

Hey boss man!

You’re looking pretty smart

With your chicken skin suit

You think you’re pretty hot

In the pork pie hat

Rudy can’t fail (x15)
