Andrew Giuliani, the son of Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, is cozily employed as a ‘Sports Liaison’ at the White House.
Many may remember Rudy Giuliani’s son as the little boy that upstaged his dad’s mayoral inauguration or the Duke alum who brought a lawsuit against the school after he was kicked off the golf team for breaking clubs and throwing an apple.
But now, he is one of the Trump administration’s longest-serving members.
While the elder Giuliani claims it isn’t the usual “hire my kid” situation, many inside the White House that call it “a nepotism job.”
So what is Andrew Giuliani’s job? According to The Atlantic, he is a public-liaison that helps arrange the visits of sports teams—for this work he is paid $90,700 a year.
The problem is there aren’t that many team visits to the White House to begin with, and many of those invited decline the invitation anyway. In order to fill up the rest of his workday, Giuliani randomly “attends White House meetings about the opioid crisis.”
Or as one former senior White House official says, “He’s just having a nice time.”

At least President Trump is draining the swamp, right?
