Rudy Giuliani continues to prove that his brain is made of old jello
Republican nominee Donald Trump’s campaign is going straight down the tubes in light of recent allegations of sexual assault, but Trump’s inner circle has been bad from the beginning. Not only is he being advised by Roger Ailes, the former CEO of Fox News who has also been accused of sexual harassment, but he has crazy Rudy Giuliani hanging around, too. Among the three of them, the former New York City mayor is arguably the most batshit out of his mind. This week, Giuliani apologized to Clinton for saying she wasn’t around after 9/11, when there is actually a picture of the Democratic nominee, then a New York senator, walking through Ground Zero with Giuliani the very next day.
His mind is mush. Giuliani said he didn’t remember the then-senator being in the city on the day of the terrorist attacks, but she’s only ever claimed to be there after the attack. There are photos among photos of the two surveying the scene together.
Clinton also worked in the senate to secure health insurance and benefits for first responders and their families, something that the former New York City overlord has praised her for in the past. Because she was really present for her state post-9/11 — it’s one thing you can’t fault her for.
He once told The Washington Post, “For that, I would give her credit. I would also say she should share that credit with Senator Schumer, Senator Gillibrand, Pete King, me, Mayor Bloomberg, and others people who were part of it. But she was part of it and she has a right to tell people that she worked hard on behalf of the 9/11 families. She did.”
But lest you think the 9/11 gaffe was a one time thing, have no fear. He says dumb and flat out wrong things on the regular. Ever since his raving mad Republican National Convention speech, Giuliani has become either the best spokesperson for Trump or the worst, depending on who you ask. He’s apocalyptic, self-important, and often wrong.
Or just nasty, like when he suggested Trump was possibly “exaggerating” on the now-viral 2005 Access Hollywood tapes. Giuliani also said the comment was just how some men speak, even though he admits that what Trump is talking about is sexual assault. He agreed with George Stephanopoulos on ABC News that Trump was talking about sexual assault, without actually saying the words. He said, “You know, whether it happened or not, I don’t know, and how much exaggeration was involved in that, I don’t know. I do know there’s a tendency on the part of men at different times to exaggerate things like this.” Sooooooo, bragging about assault is OK because that’s what men do. Oh, cool. Like I said, he’s totally off of his rocker.
Also, remember this “Make America Great Again” look? Let’s just pause for a minute to think about this hat instead of grown men in elected positions joshing around about rape.
It’s as if Giuliani, Trump, and Ailes think this is a funny game. Not all men speak like Trump did on those tapes, but the way that old boys club comports itself (complete with cigars, of course), it’s very likely Rudy, Donald, and Roger are all chuckling about some woman’s genitals as you read this.
Trump doesn’t really have much of a chance left to be president now that there are sexual assault allegations in addition to his dirty talk. But the moment he started to get Giuliani to stump for him, Trump was already doomed.
