Never underestimate the complex cunning of political leaders. William Shakespeare had that down cold.
That could well be the function Rudy Giuliani is playing in the Trump Administration.
Once a respected prosecutor, Giuliani has been reduced to mouthing off to the media. That siphons off some of the negative emotion directed at the palace.
In exchange for being a buffoon, Giuliani is able to stay in the loop of current affairs. Otherwise, he might be sidelined to Florida, as Roger Ailes had been after being forced out of Fox.
However, Giuliani shouldn't count on his role being secure. When Prince Hal in a Shakespeare history play became his own man, he distanced himself from Falstaff.
Prediction: History will not be kind to Giuliani.
