Last August, when the Obama administration returned $440 million from frozen Iranian bank accounts to Iran as part of the international deal to shutter Iran’s nuclear weapons program, Giuliani said, “I call that trading with the enemy.”
It’s a little hard to celebrate the end of 2016, a truly awful year, when in 20 days, a petty, vindictive man with the maturity and impulse control of a five-year-old and the ossified views of a dinosaur will be president.
Giuliani’s withdrawal from consideration came after Trump made clear that he was broadening his search for a secretary of state.
“She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways, and I am not looking to hurt them at all. The campaign was vicious,” Trump told the Times, adding that launching an investigation was “not something I feel very strongly about.”
Trevor Noah is confused by the idea that open racism in the White House would be an improvement, but Roy Wood, Jr., breaks it down for him.
As mayor of New York City, Giuliani gained national recognition for his post-9/11 actions, but Giuliani’s few foreign policy forays as mayor at times turned into minor international incidents.
“If Rudy wants it, he’ll get it,” former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich told “The Kelly File” on Fox News.
Stephen Colbert realized that Newt Gingrich may not understand the difference between “whoopy-making” and felonious assault.
In the last 10 years, Chicago has had only 10 referrals of suspicious activity to the state’s attorney’s office with over nine million ballots cast during that same time period.
Rudy Giuliani must be able to communicate with the dead telling Jake Tapper “I’m sorry, dead people generally vote for Democrats rather than Republicans.”
According to former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, Republican nominee Donald Trump has accepted that President Obama was born in the United States.
This is hardly the first baseless conspiracy theory to bubble into official Trump Campaign rhetoric. And while Stephen Bannon, the Breitbart executive and current Trump campaign “CEO,” may be encouraging surrogates to turn up their attacks, the real blame lies with Trump confidant and “dirty trickster” Roger Stone.
In a speech introducing GOP nominee Donald Trump in Youngstown, Ohio Monday, former Mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani appeared to forget about the biggest terror attack that happened under his mayoral tenure: the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2011.
The Trump campaign, which Giuliani frequently represents as a surrogate, has used the phrase in reference to “radical Islamic terrorism,” illegal immigration, crime rates in cities, the status of law enforcement in American culture, and one-off events like the murder of five Dallas police offices.
Republican Donald Trump’s top aides and supporters on Sunday downplayed a chaotic week in which the New York businessman was distracted from his core message by personal spats, as a new poll showed him trailing Democrat Hillary Clinton. A Washington Post-ABC News poll released on Sunday found Clinton leading among registered voters with 50 percent of support in the week after the Democratic Party convention where she was formally named the presidential nominee, compared to 42 percent for Trump.
Patricia Smith was one of a staggering six total parents who appeared onstage to link the Democratic nominee and Democratic policies with the deaths of their sons, the rest of whom were killed in incidents on the U.S.-Mexico border or involving undocumented immigrants.
By now, it’s a pattern: Conservative politicians, after failed or menially important careers in public service, turn to cable news to make a real name for themselves, parlaying the illusion of power and influence into book deals, “consulting” positions, and TV shows. Last week was a shining example.
This morning, Rudy Giuliani returned to a cable talk show to defend his allegation, on another talk show, that the Black Lives Matter movement was “inherently racist.”
Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, whose tenure was marred by law enforcement killings of unarmed African-Americans, took to the national television circuit today to baselessly smear Black Lives Matter protesters.
While Donald Trump has dominated the airwaves with vitriolic hate against Muslims and immigrants this elections season, he isn’t the only Republican pushing an Islamophobic agenda.
Donald Trump wasn’t bluffing when proposed a ban on Muslims entering the United States: This morning, he outlined the mechanism by which he would indiscriminately ban 1.6 billion people from entering the country.
George W. Bush himself, in his book Decision Points, admits “Thousands of armed men had just been told they were not wanted. Instead of signing up for the new military, many joined the insurgency.”
Watch as Rudy Giuliani simultaneously debunks Donald Trump’s claim that thousands of Muslims celebrated on 9/11 — but refuses to actually call Trump a liar.
