Andrew Giuliani, right

Andrew Giuliani, a far-right Republican candidate for governor of New York and the son of the disgraced former Trump attorney and NYC mayor is under fire for vile and vulgar anti-transgender remarks he made about his four-month-old daughter’s genitals during a political campaign event. Some also say his remarks sexualized the baby girl.

According to The Daily Beast the 36-year old Giuliani, who worked in the Trump White House as a political appointee, said his young baby daughter “made a promise to me on the first day, right?”

“My wife was sleeping, and I’m holding her [my daughter] in my arms. And I get emotional thinking about it, but she made a promise with me. She shook my hand and I said, ‘I’m the only boyfriend till you’re 25 years old, shake hands,’” Giuliani told supporters.

“Shook my hand. So I have changed the diapers. I have looked under the hood. She’s a woman. I’m gonna be the last guy in a long time that looks under the hood right there. But guess what? She was born a woman and she’s gonna stay a woman, it’s that simple.”

He made his grotesque comments at an event “hosted by an organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated as an ‘extreme anti-government group.'”

The younger Giuliani is being scorched on social media for his vile remarks.

The fight over how to deal with the classified documents that Donald Trump stole from the White House and hid away in Mar-a-Lago is continuing with rulings both from the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals and in the courtroom of “special master” Judge Raymond Dearie. In the past two days, both of those locations have handed Trump’s team of second-rate lawyers major defeats, with a stay that allows the Department of Justice to continue a criminal investigation, and a ruling that Trump’s vague claims about “declassification” are off the table.
