‘We’ll make Rudy Giuliani look good!’: NYC subway ad pops up for Trump lawyers ridiculed over impeachment defense

Donald Trump’s legal team is going off the rails.

A spoof advertisement for Trump’s impeachment lawyers popped up in a New York City subway train car Wednesday morning after the duo drew widespread ridicule for their at times meandering defense arguments at the ex-president’s Senate trial.

“IMPEACHED? Will literally no one represent you? Call Castor & Schoen,” reads the fake ad, which was spotted on a C train in lower Manhattan by a tipster who shared a photo of it with the Daily News.

Referencing Trump’s personal attorney who was not allowed to join his impeachment defense team, the ad caps off: “We’ll make Rudy Giuliani look good!”

Representatives for Bruce Castor, Jr. and David Schoen did not return requests for comment on the subway shenanigans.

But the ad itself featured a Washington, D.C., area code phone number set up with an automatic voicemail that elaborates on the tongue-in-cheek post.

“Thank you for calling the law offices of Castor and Schoen,” a voice says in the pre-recorded message. “We specialize in auto accident injury and presidential impeachment. If you are a current or former president who has incited a riot at the Capitol, please press one. If you are a current or former president who has been recorded pressuring a secretary of state to change election results, please press two.”

Castor faced the brunt of the ridicule after giving a nearly hour-long defense argument at Tuesday’s trial session that left many listeners bewildered.

Over the course of his winding speech, Castor dared the Department of Justice to arrest Trump and admitted that he had made last-minute changes to his remarks.

He said that if the Senate convicts Trump of inciting the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol “the floodgates will open.”

“I was going to say, originally, it will release the whirlwind, which is a biblical reference, but I subsequently learned before I got here that that particular phrase has been taken, so I changed it,” Castor told senators.

According to reports, Trump was furious with Castor’s trial performance.

But Castor refuted that characterization when reporters asked if Trump had expressed displeasure to him.

“Far from it,” he said while walking into the Senate chamber for Wednesday’s trial session.
