In his weekly appearance on WBSM, U.S. Congressman William Keating had some disparaging words about President Donald Trump's new lawyer, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.

"He's appeared in front of committees I've been on in just the past couple years, and I must tell you, just my impression is, he's not quite as sharp as he was before," Keating told WBSM's Chris McCarthy. "When he gets into positions, he can wander."

Keating said Giuliani has "sparked enormous controversy in such a short period of time," and said he's caused "conflict with the administration, and distraction."

Giuliani on Friday said he was trying to "clarify" statements he made this week about porn star Stormy Daniels, and former FBI director James Comey. He had stated Trump reimbursed his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, for the $130,000 "hush money" payment to Daniels, and that one reason Trump fired Comey was because Comey would not say the President wasn't a target of the Russia investigation.

"I don't know how much of what (Giuliani) said was predetermined, but it certainly wasn't legally intelligent," Keating said prior to Giuliani's "clarification." "So I wonder what his shelf life will be with this administration. We'll see."
