Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

In a speech introducing GOP nominee Donald Trump in Youngstown, Ohio on Monday, former Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani appeared to forget about the terror attack that occurred under his mayoral tenure, the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2011.

Giuliani said Monday night that in the “eight years before [President Barack] Obama came along, we didn’t have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the United States.”

Giuliani the claimed “all” the terror attacks started “when Clinton and Obama got into office” — untrue even without counting 9/11.

The internet, of course, immediately took note of Giuliani’s horrific gaffe and began tweeting up a storm in response. The New York Daily News  ran a cover this morning blasting the former-Mayor for his comments:

As CBS News notes, in the days following the 9/11 attacks, Giuliani became the face of healing for the city, and discussed the incidents so often that Vice President Biden once said the only things Giuliani mentioned in a sentence were “a noun, a verb and 9/11.”

11 Responses to Rudy Giuliani Forgets About 9/11, Despite Being The Mayor Of New York City On 9/11

  1. One of the signs of Alzheimer’s is that the individual forgets important events in his or her life. So the fact that Rudy Giuliani has forgotten the most important and most reported event to take place in New York City while he was mayor, strongly suggests that he is suffering from Alzheimer’s.

  2. Who needs surrogates or support from the press, with Trump and Giuliani continuously making fools of themselves?
    Giuliani’s faux pas goes beyond political rhetoric and bias. This guy is either in an advanced state of Alzheimer or needs to change suppliers. How can the Mayor of NYC on 9/11/01 forget the grand pappy of all terrorist attacks? If that was not bad enough, should we assume that he does not remember the eleven terrorist attacks against U.S. embassies and consulates during W’s tenure? That he does not remember the terrorist attacks in Madrid, London, and so many other places when W’s was our President? He does not remember the 4,700 U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq? The tens of thousands maimed or suffering from PTSD?
    Are we dealing with a presidential candidate, and senior supporters, or escapees from an insane asylum?

    • I would have to say the latter.

      Rudy, Carson, and Donald show an eerie similarity in symptoms of some brain dysfunction aside from memory loss. There’s a hard and cruel edge to their rhetoric as well, which sufferers of dementia or Alzheimer don’t display.
