\'Fox & Friends\' Desperately Tries to End Unhinged Giuliani Interview, Repeatedly Fails  

President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani showed up on the president's favorite morning program on Friday-and apparently didn't want to leave.

A day after Giuliani claimed on Twitter that he was about to go public with evidence that will reveal the "Biden Family Enterprise made millions by selling public office" when Joe Biden was vice president, the former New York City mayor sat down on Fox & Friends' curvy couch for what can generously be described as an unhinged, rambling, off-the-rails performance.

Giuliani, whose involvement in the Ukraine scandal is at the heart of the president's impeachment, continually left the hosts of the Fox News slack-jawed as he prattled on and bulldozed right through their efforts to keep him from incriminating and implicating himself.

For example, as he claimed he would provide "compelling" evidence later in the day on a podcast to support his wild assertions about the Bidens that seemingly ensnare the entire Obama administration AND Hillary Clinton, co-host Brian Kilmeade wanted to make sure "the State Department and the White House know everything you were doing."

Elsewhere in the interview, which was aired in front of a live studio audience, the one-time America's Mayor dismissed text messages and call logs with shady businessman Lev Parnas and other figures associated with Ukraine, oddly boasting, "How about all those phone records that show that I am a very hard-working lawyer?"

Finally, after Giuliani once again repeated his Biden-related conspiracies, co-host Steve Doocy stepped in to wrap up the segment.

"I know you could go clear through noon when your podcast starts. Give it up for Rudy Giuliani," Doocy exclaimed to cheers from the audience. "We're going to be watching."

The Trump lawyer, however, wasn't budging, instead saying that he'd only shown the "tip of the iceberg" while rambling on some more.

"Rudy, we're done," Doocy begged, prompting Kilmeade to add, "We have got to go. The president wants you to continue this investigation?"

"Would you like me to give up?" Giuliani replied, before adding, "Would you like me to say OK, Biden can keep his 8 million that he got in bribes. He can keep all the bribes that they got."

Again, Doocy tried to give the signal that the interview was over, telling Giuliani that "we're waiting for noon" for the podcast. Giuliani, meanwhile, ignored Doocy while asking Kilmeade if he should "give it up" while grabbing his head and awkwardly leaning off the couch.

The ex-mayor would continue to steamroll over Doocy's efforts to go to commercial break so he could get yet another last word in, finally giving it up after Doocy's fifth attempt to end the interview.
