Rudy says, “Trump paid Cohen back.”
Hannity says, “Oh, I didn’t know that.”
Here is the moment when Trump said he had no idea about the Stormy Daniels hush money payment.
It was so blatant that he was lying then. Rudy Giuliani just admitted it on national television. I'm dead. ???pic.twitter.com/0XpVnuOezT

Rudy quickly tried to backtrack according to USA Today:
“Do you know the president didn’t know about this?” Hannity asked referring past denials from Trump and Cohen.
“He didn’t know about the specifics of it, as far as I know,” Giuliani said, appearing to backtrack. “But he did not know about the general arrangement that Michael would take care of things like this.”
Stormy Daniels lawyer, Michael Avenatti talked to MSNBC shortly after the admission via phone:
Michael Avenatti on Rudy Giuliani: I am absolutely speechless. The American people deserve to be told the truth by the president. This is an outrage what is going on here. pic.twitter.com/Isvd1ihHOZ

Twitter weighs in on the admission from Rudy:
So funny watching libs freak out about what Rudy Giuliani said. This is the reaction they wanted. Hannity promoted his show 5 times. Zero reaction from Sean after 130k payment. Contrived. We know the reaction of the left &use it to our advantage. Yall are too easy. Stay tuned lol
